In Colorado, it’s not a big surprise that residents are used to extreme temperatures! With plenty of snow in the winter and lots of warm, sunny days in the summer, we know it’s a year-long task to keep your interiors at a pleasant and consistent temperature. While you can do this through energy-efficient HVAC systems and proper installation, today, we are going to go over three reasons why metal roofing is perfect for your Colorado property:
- Durable. While your standard shingle roof has a pretty lengthy lifespan (15-20 years), a metal roof’s lifespan is two to three times longer! That means you could potentially have 60-70 years of never needing to replace a roofing shingle. Metal roofing is an incredibly strong material, so it’s able to hold more snow, stand up to hail and rain, and can even withstand strong winds without issue.
- Energy efficient. When the sun beats down on your roof or when your roof is piled up with snow, your heating and cooling bills often react accordingly. While there are many things that you can do to make your home more energy efficient, metal roofing can help greatly reduce cooling bills in the summer by reflecting sunlight rather than absorbing it.
- Eco-friendly. When it comes to roofing materials, you’ll find that many metal roofing materials are made with a percentage of recycled materials. When juxtaposed against shingles, which are non-recyclable and don’t last as long, metal roofing is the better choice.
