Can All Roof Materials Do What Metal Can?

If hearing the term "aluminum roof," makes you picture a metal corrugated structure at a train depot, then you likely have not kept up with the advances made in metal roofing. Aluminum roofs, though on the more expensive side of roofing materials, are an investment you might never have to make again--they are that good!

Aluminum Roofs Attractive and Versatile

An aluminum roof can be manufactured in contemporary-looking panels or to imitate wood shingles. And although your aluminum roof may never need to be replaced, you can paint it if you want to change the look. Now there's a twist!

Durable and Eco-Friendly

How long have we recycled aluminum cans? Nice to see they are being put to good use. Unlike composite roofing materials that are oil-based and cannot be effectively recycled, aluminium roofs are largely made from recycled content and can be recycled if you ever choose to remove your roof. Conversely, many popular roofing materials are low on the eco-friendly scale due to the amount of space they take in landfills--with little chance of bio-degrading.

Aluminum is light-weight which helps extend the life of the structure and can easily be installed over an existing roof. And of course, it protects your home from harsh weather.

High Efficiency and Low Maintenance

Aluminum roofs have a minimal carbon footprint with almost no out-gassing (emitting chemicals into the environment). Aluminum roofs are said to cut energy costs up to 20% and cut attic temperatures up to 34%. Giving your cooling bill a break and extending the life of your air conditioner is just another return on your investment.

Asphalt Shingle Roofing

Asphalt Shingle Roofing

Asphalt shingles are the most commonly used roofing material in North America mainly because they are economical and versatile, work well on steep-sloped roofs, are sunlight and weather resistant, require little-to-no maintenance and are reasonably priced. In addition, asphalt shingles are also easy to cut, fasten, and fit, as well as being compatible with many different kinds of flashing and edging products.
