Residential metal roofing is one of the fastest growing segments of home improvement, quadrupling its market share of the industry over the last 10 years. According to the National Association of Home Builders Research, the recycled content from production to installation to reuse of metal roofing is 56%, which is far superior to its asphalt roofing counterpart, having 20 billion pounds of asphalt shingles dumped in landfills every year.
Metal roofing is an excellent insulator keeping your Midwest home comfortable regardless of the weather outside and can even lower your cooling and heating bills.
What are the Benefits of Metal Roofs?
Metal roofs are becoming more popular in Minnesota and Wisconsin because of their long-term performance characteristics, such as 50-year metal and 35-year finish warranties, not to mention their strength, unmatched durability and being maintenance free. Metal roofing is unmatched compared to other roofing materials. It exceeds its competition in recyclability, energy efficiency, product safety and weight.
- Recyclability – metal roofing is 100% recyclable.
- Energy Efficiency – reported energy savings as high as 20% on heating and cooling costs.
- Product Safety – noncombustible material for increased fire protection.
- Weight – less weight load on the structure of your home.
