Are metal roofs environmentally friendly?

Metal roofing is one of the most energy-efficient roofing products in the market and meets all the requirements of an environmentally friendly, sustainable, and green building. Stone-coated steel roofing products, such as JINHU metal roofing, further improve energy efficiency because stone particles can effectively block ultraviolet rays, enhance the heat reflection ability of metal.

Asphalt roofs absorb heat and transfer it to the interior. Just like the asphalt road and the stones on the side of the road in summer, the hottest must be the asphalt.

Additionally, metal roofs can reduce cooling costs by up to 25%. In arid regions, metal roofs save homeowners more energy bills.

Sustainability of Metal Roofs

Few roofing materials on the market are more sustainable than metal. Metal roofs last two to three times longer than traditional roofing materials such as clay, asphalt, and wood. The average lifespan of an asphalt roof is 12-20 years.

Asphalt shingles are dependent on petroleum, and manufacturing requires fiberglass, tar, etc. In most cases, old asphalt roofs can only be landfilled and cannot be degraded for a short time. As petroleum products, they are considered unsustainable and environmentally damaging.

When metal roofing reaches the end of its useful life, it can be fully recycled and reused. Metal roofing is one of the lightest roofing materials and does not stress the structure of the house. Metal roofs can be installed directly on asphalt roofs, which is environmentally friendly and cost-effective.
