Metal Roofing: Think Durability, Style and Sustainability

MRA Think Durability and Sustainability
September 12, 2023 at 6:00 p.m.

By Adam Cabrera. 

With durability and a range of styles, metal roofing is emerging as a go-to option for homeowners seeking sustainability. 

When it comes to metal roofing, many homeowners might be picturing the old tin roofs seen on barns. But think again. In a recent episode of the AskARoofer podcast hosts Megan Ellsworth and Lauren White welcomed guest Renee Ramey, the executive director of the Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA), to provide insights into the world of metal roofing. Their conversation revealed the stylish and sustainable benefits that metal roofs offer today's homeowners. 

Modern metal roofing isn't confined to one style or color. With the ability to mimic traditional materials like clay tiles, wood shakes, and even slate, metal roofing offers a wide range of looks. But it's not just about appearance. Renee highlighted some impressive facts about metal roofing's durability and performance. 

"A quality metal roof... from a quality manufacturer, you should get 40, 50 plus years out of that with bare maintenance," Renee said, dispelling myths surrounding metal roofing and its supposed limitations. Compared to other materials, like asphalt, which might not even last as long as its 30-year warranty, metal roofs have a clear advantage. 

But the benefits don't stop there. Renee also emphasized the sustainability aspect of metal roofing. With high recycled content and 100% recyclability, metal roofing plays a role in reducing environmental impacts. Additionally, homeowners can expect to see lower heating and cooling costs, contributing to overall sustainability and lower power grid usage. 

To help homeowners navigate the vast world of metal roofing, the MRA offers free resources like the Residential Metal Roofing Buyer's Guide. It's a comprehensive tool that covers considerations for different climates across the U.S. and Canada. Even homeowners' associations are encouraged to explore the many styles and colors available. 

If you're considering a new roof, don't let outdated misconceptions hold you back from exploring the sleek, stylish, and sustainable world of metal roofing.  

Listen to full AskARoofer podcast episode to learn more about metal roofing and how you might be able to take advantage of its many benefits.
