metal roof
by jill binford on January 24th, 2010

We noticed there were several roofs in the community that were being replaced by metal roofing. Can anyone tell us what the advantage is to a metal roof, besides longevity of course.
We were confused by why someone would replace a one year old shingle roof.

Jill- some of us had hail damage from a storm just months after we moved in.
metal roofs reflect sunlight instead of absording it, therefore, they can improve energy efficiency.

basically, I second what Mrs Aaron said.

a few other things - in addition to reflecting the sun for better energy efficiency and reduced heat island effect, some metal roofs can accommodate solar panels without penetrations/cutting into the roof - the panels can be attached to the metal seams. for rainwater harvesting, the water running off a metal roof would be cleaner.

and of course as was already pointed out, the metal roof should last a lot longer, although I understand some hail damage is still possible if the hail is big enough.
