Metal roofing is one of the most “green” upgrades you can add to your house (right behind thin-film solar panels, which we also install). It’s made of 25 to 30% recycled material, which helps it earn points in the United States Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) program.

Standing seam metal can save you 30% on your energy bills thanks to its important properties: reflectivity and emissivity. Take a look at the key differences between shingle and metal heat displacement:
