Metal roofs offer an opportunity to put a beautiful roof onto your house enabling you to create angles and even curves in a product that is recyclable. Sustainability is a primarily concern and by using steel cladding in the manufacture of your roof you are using a product that is 100% recyclable.
Using the standing seam system of roofing enables the sheets to be cut to a specified length and hence reduces waste. With metal roofing being lighter than other materials this can be beneficial by having lighter structural and framing requirements. Another benefit of installing standing seam. roofing is that the cut to length sheets can reduce the installation time saving on cost and effort.
On average the lifespan for a well installed and maintained metal roof is well over 40 years, with copper roofs lasting a lot longer.
You can also reduce your energy consumption due to the reflecting sunlight and retaining less heat energy than other roofing materials and in so doing reduce the energy required to heat or cool your home.
In short you can achieve a beautiful architectural statement that your neighbours will envy while helping the environment.
