REDUCING WASTE BY REDUCING ASPHALT.
For quite a while now the roofing industry has been dominated by asphalt. The trouble is that asphalt has all the disadvantages of a toxic and degradable material. That’s why a lot of homeowners have been turning to metal roofing when it’s time to choose a roof.
For Quality Edge and our Matterhorn Metal Roofing, we chose high performance deep draw steel, especially designed for a residential roof. That steel is key to the four big reasons why people choose metal roofing.
First of all, a metal roof is uniquely durable, standing up to hail, wind, fire, snow, water, and sun. Metal roofs typically last 2 to 4 times as long as asphalt.
Secondly, a metal roof has incomparable value, which stems from its long life, as well as energy efficiency. A cool metal roof is proven to reduce the roof’s temperature on hot days, and that can mean energy savings of up to 40%.
A third main benefit of a metal roof is for the environment. With asphalt shingles, most will end up in a landfill within a few decades. Steel is recyclable – 100%.
In the end, many people choose metal roofing for its beauty. The Matterhorn Metal Roofing line from Quality Edge comes in several profiles, and a whole array of colors:
