saving on summer energy costs

Our quality metal roofing systems will reduce home summer energy costs by keeping homes naturally cooler in hot weather and reducing summer air conditioning demand.

And the time to get ready for heat is before it becomes a problem. Here’s how we can help.

3 Ways a Classic Metal Roofing System Can Reduce Summer Energy Costs

  1. Special coatings of reflective pigment reflect away radiant heat. All the while looking great, in luxurious finishes and colors that resist fading.
  2. Additionally, our metal shingle, metal shake, metal tiles, and ClickLock standing seam styles have an integral air gap between the metal and the roof deck, stopping conductive heat transfer.
  3. Finally, the attics beneath our metal roofs can be ventilated 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
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 achieved with solar installations.

Our metal roofing systems provide an excellent base for rooftop solar arrays, thanks to their life expectancy and stability.

Preparing for Summer Energy Costs

It’s never too late, or too early, to plan for reducing summer heat gain and preparing for a new roof. Get on a schedule now to ensure that quality installation teams will be available in the busy, warmer months.
