The Financial Impact of Metal Roofing: Reduced Energy Costs

The Financial Impact of Metal Roofing: Reduced Energy Costs

Summer will come to Northern Wisconsin. And when it does, our quality metal roofing systems will reduce home energy costs by keeping homes naturally cooler in hot weather and reducing summer air conditioning demand.

3 Ways  Our Metal Roofing Systems Can Reduce Energy Costs

  1. Special coatings of reflective pigment reflect away radiant heat. All the while looking great, in rich finishes and colors that resist fading.
  2. Additionally, our metal shingle and metal shake styles have an integral air gap between the metal and the roof deck, stopping conductive heat transfer.
  3. Finally, the attics beneath metal roofs can be ventilated in order to exhaust out any heat that is gained into the attic.

Typical customers who purchase metal roofs with these energy-saving attributes will report summer energy cost savings of up to 20% and even more after their roofs are installed. When homeowners look at their energy savings as a way to help pay for their metal roof investment, it becomes another part of their financial picture.

Solar Ready Roofing for Northern Wisconsin

We often find that metal roof customers are solar installation customers, and vice versa. The environmentally-friendly and cost-saving goals accomplished with a metal roof are quite similar to those accomplished with solar installations.  Our metal roofing systems provide a great base for rooftop solar arrays, thanks to their life expectancy and stability.
