Are Metal Roofs Eco-Friendly?
As we move towards a more sustainable environment, it’s important to be mindful of environmental impact. One way metal roofs stand out from most other types of roofs is that they are more eco-friendly.
Metal roofs are made from 25-95% recycled material, depending on the materials used. They are also 100% recyclable at the end of their life as a roof. By contrast, most shingle tear-off waste ends up in a landfill. In terms of production, there are fewer emissions released when making metal roofing.
Are Metal Roofs Energy Efficient?
Yes. Metal roofing reflects more light from the sun, which means a new metal roof will help keep your home cooler in the summer. Metal roofs are more or less reflective, depending on the type of finish used or applied. This reflectiveness alone can reduce cooling costs by as much as 10-25%.
They also can provide better protection for insulated underlayments, making metal roofs a popular choice in passive home building. A metal roof can even be installed with an air gap to allow the roof to vent above the attic, which can result in a tremendous insulation improvement. This is great for the summers in Marthasville, MO, as it can mean big savings on energy bills since you won’t have to crank up your AC as high on those hot days.
How Much Does a Metal Roof Cost?
Standing Seam Metal Roofs are often as much as two or three times more expensive than an architectural shingle roof. While the life of a metal roof is much longer, investing in a metal roof only makes sense if you plan to stay in your home long enough to enjoy the cost benefits. However, you should recoup about 85-95% of the cost of a new metal roof when you sell your home. Trust the specialists at Cook Roofing Company to give you a competitive and thorough estimate of the cost of a new metal roof. Financing is available in many cases.
Are Metal Roofs Noisy?
Light gauge metal roofing can be noisy, especially during a heavy rain or hailstorm. Adding more insulation during a roof installation will usually solve this problem though. And some people, reportedly, even find the sound of rain on a metal roof comforting. If the metal roof is installed with an air gap, you may not notice at all.
What Types of Metal Roofing Materials Are There?
For most people, when the phrase “metal roof” is mentioned, what comes to mind is a steel roof. However, metal roofing is an umbrella phrase for a variety of materials.
- Steel Roofing
- Aluminum Roofing
- Copper Roofing
- Tin Roofing
What Are The Main Styles of Metal Roofs?
There are several different styles of metal roofing:
- Mechanical and snap lock metal roofing connections form tight connections that make water infiltration near impossible to damage your roof.
- Metal shingles can come in various cuts and sizes and can imitate various styles of shapes.
- Corrugated metal roofing is great for outbuildings, barns, and sheds. This is because it’s a cost-effective material. But it also comes in thicker gauges – up to 22 gauge – providing higher strength than thinner metals.
- Exposed fastener metal panel roofing is a commonly-seen metal roof type. It is more affordable than standing seam roofing, but has one serious drawback: tens of thousands of fasteners which puncture right through the very top of the panels, and sealed with neoprene washers which have about 10 years of protection from leaks. Most other roofing types have hidden fasteners. These roofs often leak from those screw holes.
- Standing seam roofing is the ultimate for durability, protection, and curb appeal. Standing seam roofing has no exposed fasteners to leak. The panel seams and joints are interlocking, and in some cases crimped and/or welded. Standing seam roofs come in a broad range of colors, whether baked on at the factory, or using site-applied coatings.
