Part 2: Environmental Benefits of Metal Roofing by Jones Boys
We at Jones & Associates, the leading siding contractor in Odessa TX, bring you more information about metal roofing and how it can benefit you as a homeowner.
The first part of this 2-part blog was about the general characteristics of metal roofing and its recycling advantage in an effort to help protect the environment. (Click here https://www.thejonesboys.com/blog/part-1-environmental-benefits-of-jones-boys-metal-roofing/ to see Part 1 of the blog.)
In this second part, we will focus on the energy-saving properties of metal used as roofing material.
When it’s an awfully hot day in Texas, the temperature of your conventional asphalt shingles rises to about 200 degrees. When it reaches that point of extremity, the heat will infiltrate your home, making it uncomfortably warmer. This translates into your cooling units working twice as hard to maintain a certain level of coolness. Talk about an increase in power consumption and hefty energy bills!
Metal roofs with reflective coatings can direct away the sun’s heat, preventing your house from absorbing it further. Through this process, the temperature inside your home will significantly drop, giving you up to 40% worth of savings in cooling expenses.
Further, metal roofs promise superior performance during wintertime. With their smooth surface and pitch, they allow snow to fall off quickly, preventing ice dams and icicles from forming.
Now that you know both the recycling advantages and the energy-saving properties of metal roofing, you should consider it as the ultimate option. Not only do you save on utility bills and repair costs, but you can save the environment as well!
