Did you know that metal roofing in NJ is one of the fastest-growing segments of the residential roofing market? In 1999, metal claimed only 4 percent of the reroofing market. Last year, metal’s market share reached 10 percent – a considerable rise which industry professionals attribute to increasing awareness of metal roofing’s benefits. The durability, efficiency, curb appeal and sustainability of metal makes it a smart choice for most New Jersey homeowners.
• Durable. Metal provides the toughest roofing surface available, hands down. Most metal roofs last three to four times longer than an asphalt shingle roof. When it comes to wind and weather resistance, metal roofing in NJ stands alone. Metal roofing systems have passed wind and uplift tests including UL 580, a rigorously demanding test that simulates wind speeds over 120 miles per hour.
• Attractive. Metal roofing is no longer a “plain Jane” product. Manufacturers are reaching out to a wider segment of the roofing market with a huge array of designs, finishes and colors. From painted aluminum to shiny copper, even the most discriminating homeowners find that a metal roof can bring out the best in their home.
• Energy efficient. Metal roofing systems feature the highest solar reflectance value of any roofing material available. This means that a metal roof can keep your home significantly cooler than other materials. The Cool Metal Roofing Coalition has reported that using reflective metal roofing can save a home up to 40% in summer cooling costs.
• Recyclable. Metal roofing in NJ features both high recycled content and great recyclability, making it a front runner in the green roofing movement. Most metal roofing contains at least 25% recycled content, and the steel, aluminum, copper and zinc used in metal panels are 100% recyclable.
