Save Money on Energy Bills and Repairs With a New Metal Roof

Posted by at 2:24 PM

The dog days of summer have hit us, and with temperatures up in the 90s, if you have an air conditioner, you’re probably running it right now. Those bills can add up, so you’re probably looking for ways to reduce them. One way to do that is to install a new metal roof. Heat Reflecting jl0725f6One of the most common misconceptions people have about metal roofs is that they actually transfer more heat into the home than other types of roofing, when the exact opposite is true. Metal roofing’s reflective surface actually diverts more heat than any other type on the market. Although different styles reflect different amounts of heat, all types of metal roofing reflects the sun’s heat away, which keeps your home cooler for longer. Naturally, when you’re home’s cooler, you don’t need to run your air conditioner as much, and your monthly bills will be lower.  Great Looking and Durable Today, you can get a metal roof installed which looks like it’s made out of asphalt shingles, wood shakes and even tile. These styles all save you money, because regardless of what the roof looks like, the metal still keeps the sun’s heat from getting into the house. You can also get your metal roof in any color you’d like, so it will go with whatever siding you may already have. Metal roofs are also very durable. They can stand up to high winds without lifting and are tough enough to face the huge variety of weather we face every season. Because of their resiliency, they require very little maintenance, and you probably won’t need to replace them. This saves you even more money in the long run.
