As reported by Sal Alfano of Remodeling Magazine, homes renovated with standing-seam metal roofing show a rate of 85.9% cost recouped in the national average with up to 95.5% for homes in the Eastern states, a full 1 and 6% resale value gain over homes roofed with asphalt. And with all the added safety and longevity associated with quality metal roofing matching installation job costs that reach only one half of that of cosmetic room remodeling averages or even one eighth of that of a master suite addition, you hardly deny the sense in upgrading.

RCA Certified Material

Chalk, or the appearance of a whitish, powdery substance on the panel surface, is the result of a breakdown of carbon bonds in the finish. Resins protect the pigments and give UV resistance to help them fade less over time. Higher resin content means a longer lasting film, more abrasion resistance and more panel protection. 

Pigment is the particles of color that are suspended in the resin to create color. Fading occurs when environmental influences attack the pigments causing them to change color over time. Pigments are rated on their ability to resist fading. In this rating the lower the number the better.

 Why Metal?

Protect your home - protect your Planet

Used on homes as diverse as Monticello to your neighborhood three-bedroom rancher, metal roofs provide energy savings, beauty, and protection for your home that can last a lifetime. Residential metal roofs are available in a wide variety of design to complement any style home. Offered in a rainbow of colors, your metal roof can be a traditional vertical seam profile, or be manufactured to resemble wood shake, slate, shingles or clay tiles.

And, by choosing a metal roof, you'll save money and do your part for the environment. Conventional roofing products, including asphalt shingles, contribute an estimated 20 billion pounds of waste to U.S. landfills annually, whereas metal roofs can often be installed over an existing roof, eliminating the cost and eco-impact of tear-off and disposal.

Many residential metal roofs now utilize reflective pigment technology, which results in overall home energy efficiency, and lower utility bills. In addition, all metal roofs are made from 30-60% recycled material.

While your neighbors may re-roof their home many times, a high-quality metal roof will likely be the last roof you'll ever need. Resistant to cracking, shrinking and eroding, metal roofing systems can also withstand extreme weather conditions including heavy snow loads, hail storms and wildfires.

Going Green with Metal Roofing

by Matthew J. Goering

Roofing ranks near the top of the list when it comes to commonplace home improvements that can benefit big from going green. After all, your roof's exposure to heat, cold, and sunlight make it an excellent candidate for improving your home's overall energy efficiency. And since your roof is also your home's most important line of defense when it comes to protecting you and yours from the elements, it's easy to see why homeowners across the country are drawn to the quality workmanship and high expectations that green remodeling is known for.

Green Metal Roofing
If you go into it with a green mindset, metal roofing is clearly one of the greenest roofing products on the market. Why? You can purchase metal roofs made from recycled materials; a metal roof is recyclable again when you tear it off; and on top of that, metal roofs are long lasting, durable, and energy-efficient, as well. They don't come without a few potential pitfalls, however, which is why we've put together this guide on green metal roofing to help you make your new metal roof installation as green as possible.

Green Roofing with David Johnston
There's nobody better to walk you through the ins and outs of making sure your metal roof installation is as green as they come than David Johnston, founder of the green consulting firm What's Working, Inc., author of the Nautilus Award winning book Green Remodeling: Changing the World One Room at a Time, and HomeAdvisor's point man on all things green. Here is some of Johnston's advice on what you can do to turn your metal roof into a green metal roof.

Energy Efficiency and Green Metal Roofing
Choosing a greener metal roof almost always translates into cheaper energy bills down the road. Here's what you can expect from your new metal roof in the energy savings department, and a few things you can do to increase your energy savings even more.

  • Metal Roofing is Cool Roofing—Metal roofing is known as a "cool" roofing material because it transmits far less heat from the sun down into your attic than other materials such as asphalt shingle roofing. Mostly that's because metal roofs are thinner and can't retain as much heat, though the color you choose to paint your roof can also make a difference.
  • Install Light Colored Roofing—With metal, a galvanized finish or white painted roof is ideal. Light colored roofing reflects, rather than absorbs, heat from the sun. The result is a cooler home and reduced cooling bills, especially if you have air conditioning ductwork in the attic.
  • Install Radiant Heat Barriers—Radiant heat barriers are a thin layer of metal insulation (usually tin foil with a paper backing or a metalized mylar sheeting), which can reduce radiant heat transfer into your attic by as much as 95 percent when installed to the underside of your roof.
  • Install Rainwater Catch Systems—Because metal roofs channel water so efficiently, and they don't have toxic components like asphalt shingles, they are the perfect roofing material for a rainwater catch system. By installing cisterns or drums to catch valuable rainwater and runoff for landscaping use, you can save money on the monthly water bill.

Health Considerations and Green Metal Roofing
Johnston is quick to point out that contrary to popular belief, green remodeling isn't all about improving energy efficiency. It's just as much about creating more comfortable, safer, and healthier homes. Here are a few simple steps you can take to ensure that health is a priority during and after the time that your new roof is installed.

  • Only Purchase Lead-Free Metal Roofing—Be sure that your metal roofing is lead-free in both the metal alloy and your roof's coating. Even small amounts of lead can lead to mental and physical impairment in fetuses and small children, decreased coordination and mental abilities in adults, and kidney damage, blood damage, and even increased blood pressure. Avoid it at all costs!
  • Hire a Quality Contractor—A poorly installed roof can leak moisture into your attic, which can lead to water damage, rot, and mold growth; the last of which has been proven to contribute to a number of serious health issues. Be sure you hire a roofer who know the ins and outs of working with metal roofs (avoiding the cross contact of different alloys, and adopting roofing profiles with hidden screws and clips, for example) to help ensure you won't get any nasty surprises a few years down the road.
  • Build a Steep Sloped Roof—A metal roof with a steep pitch discourages standing water, leakage, ice dams, and heavy snow buildup. That means less chance of moisture penetration and roofing failure, and a reduced risk of water damage and mold growth.
  • Provide Adequate Attic Ventilation—Proper attic ventilation is vital to a healthy, green roof. Ridge vents, soffit vents, and gable vents all help to keep air circulating, which results in a cooler attic and home in the summer and reduced condensation build-up in the attic in the winter, which can result in water damage, rot, and mold growth.

Green Metal Roofing and the Environment
Of course, at the heart of any green metal roofing is environmental stewardship. While metal roofing is as environmentally friendly as roofing materials come, here are some suggestions from Johnston to help you make sure you've left no stones unturned.

  • Purchase Recycled Content Metal Roofing—Metal roofing can be made from aluminum, copper, or steel, and can be purchased with recycled material contents as high as 100 percent. That means less waste gets sent to the landfills, and less energy is wasted during production. From an environmental standpoint, the more recycled content, the merrier.
  • Minimize Waste & Recycle Materials—Measure your roof and order roofing materials carefully to minimize waste. Also, remember that 85 to 90 percent of construction waste is recyclable, either by reusing it or disposing of it at facilities that will recycle the materials. Finally, if you're replacing an older metal roof with a new one, keep in mind that none of your old roofing material should go to the landfill.
  • Energy Efficiency—All those energy savings that metal roofing will provide you over the years is good for the environment, too. High energy efficiency means reduced fossil fuel consumption, which is becoming more and more important as fuel supplies dwindle and the detrimental effects of global warming continue to come to light.

Calculating the True Value of Going Green with Your New Metal Roof

What's it going to cost you if you go green with your metal roofing? Probably not any more than if you don't, to be honest. You may pay a fraction more for recycled content metal roofing and the added energy efficiency of a radiant heat barrier, but when you factor in energy savings over time and the higher quality installation that goes hand-in-hand with green building philosophies, you'll probably make money by choosing green in the end. That said, Johnston is quick to warn homeowners against getting caught up in "the payback trap" of green remodeling. While it's true that a green metal roof might save you a few bucks on your utilities in the long term, going green is worth a lot more than a person can measure in dollars and cents. Green roofs are healthier, longer lasting, lower maintenance roofing solutions. And when you figure in the fact that you'll be making a commitment to passing a better world onto your children and grandchildren, it's easy to see what Johnston means when he says that the true value of going green is far higher than any cost estimate can indicate.

If you think green is the right choice for you, be sure to talk to your contractor about adopting a green building philosophy, find a contractor who specializes in green building and remodeling, or seek out the services of a green consulting firm to help you plan and design the best, and greenest, roof you possibly can.

Metal Roofing Fact vs. Fiction 

Facts:

Valuable Investment

While the initial cost for a premium metal roof can be higher than most other roofing materials, you'll save money in the long run. A metal roof can last a lifetime, whereas materials like asphalt require reroofing every 10 to 20 years. A metal roof can also increase the resale value of your home. In some states, like Texas, a metal roof can even lower your homeowner's insurance by 35%
 

Long Lasting

The average life of a non-metal roof is 17 years. Asphalt can require re-roofing every 10 to 20 years, often sooner. But a metal roofing system offers unmatched durability, lasting 2 to 3 times longer. Chances are good that a metal roof will be the last roof you ever install on your home.
 

Beautiful Variety

No matter what kind of roofing style, color or finish you have now, there's a metal roofing style to match. Today's metal roofing looks just like common roofing material such as asphalt shingle, clay tile, cedar shake or slate. However, metal lasts at least 2 to 3 times longer. For a wide variety of great-looking choices, mouse over the thumbnails at right.
 

Strong & Durable

Non-metal roofing material begins to deteriorate as soon as it's exposed to elements such as the UV rays of the sun, temperature changes, severe storms, and high winds. A metal roof will never deteriorate, and can withstand most everything Mother Nature throws its way.
 

Energy Efficient

Metal roofing in light colors reflects heat effectively to reduce cooling loads in the summer and insulates homes during the winter. That can help to lower energy bills.
 

Long Warranties

Most metal roofing comes with a true 30 to 50 year manufacturer warranty, plus a 1 year workmanship warranty.
 

Fiction Revealed

Lightning

A metal roof will absolutely not increase the likelihood of lightning striking your home. However, if your home were hit by lightning, your metal roof would disperse the energy safely throughout the structure. Since metal roofing isn't combustible or flammable, it's a low risk and desirable roofing option where severe weather is concerned, especially for lightning.
 

Noise

This may surprise you, but metal roofing is often quieter than an asphalt shingle roof. When installed with solid sheathing, unlike old style tin roofs, a metal roof on your home will actually silence noise from rain, hail and bad weather, many times much better than other roofing materials.
 

Rust

Today's metal roofing systems are built to last. Steel metal roofing has a "metallic coating" made of either zinc or a combination of zinc and aluminum. This metallic coating prevents rust from forming and is bonded to the steel at the factory. Paint is then applied over the metallic coating to provide the long-lasting color homeowners desire.
 

Dents

In most cases, a metal roof can withstand decades of abuse from extreme weather like hail, high winds, and heavy snow. A typical hail storm will not dent your metal roof. Today's systems also have a 120-mph wind rating (equal to an F2 tornado), meaning your metal roof is also safe from wind gusts that can accompany hail storms.
 

Durability

Many people think you can't (or shouldn't) walk on a metal roof, but the truth is that you can safely walk any metal roof without damaging it. Before you walk your roof, however, we recommend you talk to your installer or roof manufacturer first. They will have the details on how to walk the particular roof you have, based on the style you chose and your roof pitch.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is primarily made of steel or aluminum.  The metal is rolled into long rolls at a metal processing plant.  It is coated with a special coating to prevent rust and painted with special paint that is baked on.  The rolls are then shipped to the roofing manufacturer.  The manufacturer shapes the rolls of metal into panels or tiles, depending on the type of product being produced, using rollforming machinery or large metal presses.

Metal roofing comes in a wide variety of colors and finishes.  It can be made to look similar to asphalt shingles, shake tiles, or slate.  The variety of colors is only hampered by the imagination of the end-user.

What Makes It Green

The steel and aluminum that is used to make metal roofing contains 25-30% recycled material, and is fully recyclable at the end of its life.  It can be installed directly over an existing asphalt roof system, reducing the need to send the old roof to the landfill.

Metal roofing can assist with energy efficiency.  Due to its highly reflective surface, it deflects most of the solar radiation that strikes the roof of a building.  Then, depending on the color, it can also re-emit the solar energy that is absorbed, with up to 90% of the energy absorbed being sent back.  Reducing the solar heat gain from the roof reduces the energy demand for cooling and allows smaller capacity HVAC systems to be installed.

Green Product Certifications

[Energy Star] Energy Star – Metal roofing products, depending on the color of the finish (which determines solar reflectance and emissivity), can qualify for Energy Star certification.  “Energy Star qualified roof products must meet minimum initial and aged solar reflectance values.  Emissivity is not currently a requirement for Energy Star qualification.”  Lighter colors have higher solar reflectance.

The Sky's the Limit for Metal Roofing

The Sky's the Limit for Metal Roofing

By Craig A. Shutt

With wildfires, hurricanes, hail and other extreme conditions affecting housing across the country, more homeowners are becoming aware of the potential advantages of metal roofing. Manufacturers are encouraging this interest by introducing a wider range of style options to fit more home designs.

Contractors, too, can benefit from metal roofing. It allows them to offer clients the look of wood shakes, for example, even in wildfire-prone areas of California.

Metal roofs are definitely gaining popularity, according to the Metal Roofing Alliance, which was formed in 1999 to educate both homeowners and contractors about the benefits of the material. The association focuses on the reroofing market, which has the most potential for using metal roofing, explains Bill Hippard, MRA president.

In 1999, the material's market share for the reroofing market came to about 4 percent. Last year, it totaled 8 percent—a large increase, albeit on a small base. "There is more awareness among both homeowners and roofers about the key benefits offered by metal roofing," Hippard says.

Tough and versatile
Those benefits include fire and hail resistance, plus strong performance under hurricane conditions, including meeting the very strict code for Dade County, Fla. Metal roofing also is lightweight, weighing one-third as much as asphalt shingles and about 1/20 the weight of clay or tile, Hippard says. That means that homeowners who are reroofing their homes, especially during an addition or other remodeling work, can create the look of heavier materials on their roofs without worrying about needing added support.

There are many options available for creating a new appearance, Hippard notes. "Originally, metal roofing companies offered only vertical, roll-formed panels, which don't really fit well into suburban neighborhoods. But today, there are products that resemble shingles, tile, slate, cedar shakes and any other product." It's even possible to have the panels painted or treated to give the metal an aged appearance, so the "shakes" fit with the age of the home.

The styles and popularity of metal roofing vary regionally. The Southeast, with its high winds, and the West, with its more rustic home designs, are highest in market penetration. The Southeast uses the most metal roofing, with about 14 percent of the market. The Northeast has about 8 percent market share, while the Midwest lags behind.

Pricey—or is it?
Metal roofing must not only surmount a lack of awareness among both homeowners and roofers, but it also has to overcome an initial price differential between its products and asphalt shingles—about two and a half to three times more than asphalt. The 50-year-plus lifetime of metal roofing can create a more equitable lifecycle cost, avoiding replacement for a couple of generations, but few homeowners are considering their home's maintenance costs 50 years into the future.

However, Hippard sees the cost differential reducing in coming years for several reasons:

Higher petroleum costs are causing asphalt shingle prices to rise.
The energy tax-credit law that took effect in 2006 provides a credit for heat-reflective metal roofing, which also will save homeowners in warmer climates money on their energy bills every year—as much as 25 percent in the South.
Home appraisers are impressed by the durability of metal roofs, in some cases adding $1.45 per square foot to the value of a home with a metal roof.

Insurers, too, are swayed, with some in Texas and Oklahoma providing as much as 35-percent insurance discounts due to the fewer worries of hail penetrating the roof and causing damage. Insurance companies currently are studying how much metal roofs might help protect homes in hurricanes.

"Lifecycle costs are a hard sell, but we expect that to be less critical to the sale because comparative prices are coming down," Hippard says. "But once the homeowner is interested and sees the other benefits and style options, lifecycle costs make it an easier decision."
