If you need to replace your roof,
maybe sooner than you expected, it could be from the less than adequate
materials that were previously used. Aluminum is a sustainable building material,
with unparalleled ability to withstand snow and ice, sun and fire, hail and
wind. Not being susceptible to damaging effects of nature, aluminum
roofing can last a lifetime.
How sustainable is aluminum?
- Will outlast most other types of roofing and withstand most anything nature can throw at your roof.
- Is not only lightweight and strong, it is energy efficient because it is solar reflective.
- Helps to keep your house cooler during the summer, contributing to a greener earth by using less energy and saving you money.
- Does not need frequent roof repairs and costly replacements that are associated with many other roofing materials, saving
even more for your pocketbook.
- Is completely recyclable and can be installed directly over those asphalt shingles you probably have now, reducing the
amount of shingles in landfills.
- Will not split, dry, rot, crack, or become home for insects. Nor will it mold or mildew, curl, or support moss and fungus.
- Does not rust, making this type of roofing ideal for coastal environments.
- Is malleable and available in a wide variety of detailed designs and a wider variety of colors, creating a functional and
attractive roof for your home.
So if you are finding that you need
to replace your roof sooner than expected, take a good look at metal
roofing, especially aluminum.
