Metal and cool roofs are a commercial roof system that are on the rise in popularity. They have many benefits, perhaps the best of which is that they reflect sunlight, helping to keep the building cooler. Metal and cool roofs also tend to have longer lifespans than other roofing materials, including asphalt, and are better at withstanding elements like heavy rains, winds, and damage from debris. These types of roofs are also more lightweight and offer a stylish, architectural look. These roofs are referred to as metal roofs or cool roofs interchangeably because of their structure as well as their benefits.
Here are 4 benefits of metal and cool roofing:
- Lowers temperature indoors
Installing a metal roof can help maintain a lower temperature inside the building. Because metal roofs reflect sunlight, this means less heat is absorbed by the roof and then transferred into the building. Overall, this can help cut down on energy consumption and save on energy costs.
- Save on air conditioning costs
When the temperature inside is cooler, it can help you save on air conditioning costs. Metal and cool roofs help reflect heat and maintain a lower indoor temperature, which translates to lower air conditioning usage. This can directly translate to savings on air conditioning units by extending their lifespan.
- Decrease maintenance costs
Unlike asphalt and shingled roof systems, a metal or cool roof system is far more low-maintenance. When you decrease the need for maintenance costs you can avoid the need for re-roofing and enjoy an extended lifespan of a metal or cool roof system.
