Metal roofs have many advantages, but some homeowners are hesitant about installing them because of some misconceptions. To help you make an informed choice, Georgia Roof Advisors, the best roofing company in the state, lists some little-known facts about metal roofs below.
Metal Roofs Can Be Used in Modern, Everyday Home Designs
The views about metal roofs’ suitability for certain home designs are polarized. On the one hand, some think that metal isn’t the most visually appealing material, pointing to its prominent use on industrial factories and backyard sheds. On the other hand, some think that metal roofs only work on avant-garde, high-end homes. But metal roofs are also suitable for the middle ground—the modern, everyday home.
Metal roofs have seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years, thanks to the modern farmhouse design. This design style puts a modern twist on a combination of industrial and rustic elements, fusing wooden and metal accents in a minimalist design.
If you want to know more about how to best integrate a metal roof into your home’s exterior design, it would be a good idea to consult your local roofing company or a design expert.
Metal Roofs Are Eco-Friendly
Speaking of trends, the green, eco-friendly trend has been gaining traction among homeowners as well. Metal roofs can reflect heat and can potentially reduce cooling costs by as much as 10 to 25%. You can increase their energy efficiency by adding reflective or granular coatings.
Metal roofs can reduce not only your carbon footprint but also the amount of construction waste that ends up in landfills. In addition to being durable, metal roofs are recyclable. This means that even at the end of your metal roof’s lifespan, not a single scrap ends up in the landfill.
