Metal roofing is cool in more ways than one. Along with keeping homes and buildings cool, it also lowers energy costs and helps us move towards a more sustainable future! If you’re looking to install a more energy efficient roof, Central States Manufacturing offers a variety of metal roofing products with high solar reflectivity and emissivity.
According to Central States Manufacturing, a metal roof can reduce your energy bills by up to 40%. For building owners and homeowners looking to cut costs, this can be very beneficial to their budget. It can also save owners money in the long run on repair and replacement costs because metal lasts two to three longer than traditional shingle roofs.
Central States’ metal roofing products are made of up to 95% recycled content. And with their low weight, you could even have them installed over a layer of shingles which greatly reduces waste. Depending on the finish, some of their metal roofing panels have high Solar Reflectivity Index (SRI) values, the highest being 84!
The sustainable qualities of metal roofing don’t just benefit the environment. Did you know that your metal roof can qualify for tax credits, insurance discounts and LEED points? Plus, if you are looking to sell your home in the future, the unique look of a metal roof can actually increase your home value.
Get the most out of your roof by investing in metal roofing! You could end up saving more money in the long run than you anticipate.
