In recent years, one of the most important factors when it comes to renovation work on both residential and commercial properties has been the environmental cost. Homeowners and businesses alike are looking for roofing solutions that are greener and more sustainable. This has triggered a spike in the popularity of metal roofing with commercial roofer and customer alike.
One of the reasons why metal roofing has become more popular is the sustainability it offers. Commercial roofers say that a quality metal roof should last as long as 50 years once installed. It can also be recoated using commercial roof coatings to extend its life rather than replacing it entirely if any leaks develop. The same can be said of residential metal roofing.
Another reason that commercial roofers will often recommend metal roofing is the favorable energy efficiency that it offers. When installed with the appropriate insulation and ventilation, metal roofing is incredibly energy efficient. In addition, if a commercial roof coating is applied, this can also improve energy efficiency and reduce heating and cooling costs.
Additional Eco Benefits of Metal Roofing
There are a few other benefits that commercial roofers associate with metal roofing aside from the sustainability and energy efficiency factors.
- Metal roofs are 100% recyclable
- Metal Roofing can be installed over existing roofs reducing waste disposal
- Since metal roofs are more lightweight allowing new build homes to be designed with a lighter structure
- Metal roofing is much more durable than some of the other commercial roofing materials on the market
