Just take a look at the environmental benefits of Metal Roofing:

  • Made from 95% recycled content
  • Minimal carbon footprint, unlike traditional shingles
  • Special Kynar 500® or Hylar 5000 hI-R coating reflects radiant heat
  • Cuts energy costs by up to 20%
  • Reduces attic temperatures by up to 34%
  • Integral “dead” airspace blocks heat transfer by conduction
  • Lower cooling load can extend air conditioner life
  • Integrates with most photovoltaic solar collection systems
  • Low weight allows installation over most existing roofs
  • Eliminates the need for landfill disposal of old roofing
  • Low weight minimizes transportation cost
  • Long-life sustainability
  • Aluminum products can be repainted but will likely never need replaced
  • Low weight roofing can extend a building’s life
  • 100% recyclable if it is ever replaced
  • Very low “Embodied Energy”
  • Virtually zero out-gassing

Van Martin has  a genuine concern in helping to maintain and improve the environment for future generations.  In this regard, metal roofing meets the criteria of recycled content, recyclability, and energy efficiency.  Metal roofing is one of the most energy efficient roofing systems available and tests have shown that it can save you up to 40% on cooling costs.

In addition, it’s not asphalt based like shingles, which means its production doesn’t continue to fuel our country’s biggest addiction… oil.  Although these are the major drivers, there are many other reasons why metal roofing is gaining in popularity.
