Sustainable Roofing: Metal for Restoration and Preservation
January 31, 2020
If you own an older home, chances are that one of the motivating factors to your decision to purchase that home was to not see it fall into disrepair or have to be torn down.
Metal roofing goes well with that thought because of its anticipated durability. It can protect and beautify homes for many, many years to come. Additionally, most metal roofs have high recycled content– about 95% for aluminum and 35% for steel. Plus, at the end of a metal roof’s useful life, it is 100% recyclable.
That makes metal roofing a sustainable choice for the restoration and preservation of your home.

Sustainable Roofing: Metal Protects What You Already Have
When it’s time to re-roof an older home, make a decision for a long-lasting, protective solution. Replacing and recreating the details and beauty of a century-old home is costly. If you’ve already done it once, protect it and your investment, for another lifetime.
Only the very rich can afford to go cheap when it comes to roofing and buy a new roof every few years while having repair and damage costs in between.
Older homes will always have maintenance challenges; your roof doesn’t have to be one of them.
