Efficiency and environmentally friendly
Metal roofing includes a Prepainted finish that comes in over 30 colors that are all energy star paints, even the dark colors are energy star approve such as Matte Black. This technology was developed by NASA for the space shuttle and it reflects the heat from the sun away from your roof and home. It helps the house stay cooler by up to 25% compared to other materials. Also, metal roofing can last for over 80 years with hardly any maintenance required.

Your home modification would not be completed without the state of the art ventilation system. Ventilation systems deliver several benefits. One in particular is how much we are able to drop the temperature in your attic. We cannot deny the fact that metal gets hot when exposed to high temperatures or to the direct sunlight and can get cold when winter comes. Metal is a good conductor, which means it changes its temperature quickly and stays very close to the air temperature. Therefore, when installing, metal roofing, always consider an efficient ventilation system.
If your attic is not properly vented or has no way to escape the hot air, you can have a serious problem that could turn into mold and mildew. This can cause all sorts of problems including hazardous air inside you home which will cause health problems, this should not be taken lightly. Not to mention the damage it can cause to the surfaces in your home. An effective ventilation system which will properly vent out the hot air in the summer and allow the moist air to escape during the winter months is a must in all homes.
