The Eco-Friendly and Energy-Saving Benefits of Metal Roofs

By Stacy Mellete

As people become more educated about the need for sustainable living, many homeowners are prioritizing eco-friendly options in their purchases and renovations. To meet this rising demand, the home improvement industry has sought out solid alternatives that will adhere to even the most rigorous Green standards.

Of the various solutions available today, residential metal roofing has gained great popularity even among the skeptics. Let Affordable Roofing Systems, the metal roofing contractor Tampa FL, discuss its many environmental and energy saving benefits:


The service life of a metal roof is about two to three times longer than that of typical asphalt shingles. Metal is malleable so it can withstand dents and dings without suffering any breaks or cracks. It is impervious to fire, insects, and has a wind rating of up to 120 mph. It is also easy to maintain and exudes a rugged, yet unique beauty that other roofing systems just can’t beat.

Their long life spans mean that they hardly contribute to landfill wastes. In fact, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) states that they are among the most eco-friendly solutions from a waste-reduction standpoint. It’s little wonder that homeowners love our metal roofing in Tampa, brandon, Sarasota and St. Petersburg, FL.

Energy Efficiency

Considered the ‘cool’ option, metal roofs are an energy-efficient solution that can save you up to 40% percent in your monthly costs. They are cool because of their ability to reflect solar heat away from your home. Depending on its color, a metal roof can have a reflectance range anywhere from 10% to 75%. This will serve you well, especially here in Florida where it is famous for its consistently hot summers.


Metal roofs are fully recyclable at the end of their long service lives. They are also made of up to 95% recycled content. This makes them the ideal option for those looking to go Green.

Our metal roofs come in a wide array of colors and finishes, and as your trusted metal roofing contractor in Tampa, FL, we will work with you to select the ideal specs for your home. Thanks to latest innovations, they resist rust, and won’t fade or crack even under the harshest conditions.
