With so much focus on climate change and environmental friendly solutions for your home, you’re no doubt wondering how sustainable your metal roofing is.
In this article, we’ll discuss whether metal roofing is a sustainable option for your commercial business, the benefits of having metal roofing for sustainability and where to go if you want a metal roofing solution you can rely on.
Is Metal Roofing Sustainable?
Let’s start at the beginning. Metal roofing is one of the most sustainable products for roofing on the market. This is one of the reasons that we at Manchester Roofing specialise in metal roofing for Australian businesses.
How is Metal Roofing Sustainable?
There are any number of ways in which metal roofing is sustainable and more environmentally friendly for Australian businesses. In this section, we’ll discuss some of the most common reasons why our customers consider metal roofing to be sustainable.
Energy Efficiency & Temperature Control
One of the reasons people consider metal roofs to be a sustainable solution – especially as environmentally friendliness becomes more prevalent – is energy efficiency and its ability to maintain its own temperature.
By nature, metal roofing is designed to keep your building cool in summer and warm in winter, without the need for external sources like air conditioning.
When you own a business, longevity is key. And with metal roofing, that’s exactly what you get. Research shows that a well-maintained metal roof can last up to 40 years, if not longer. This makes it a worthwhile investment for commercial enterprises.
Research indicates that due to how a metal roof is constructed, it does have some form of fire protection. This is because there are fewer gaps in the roof (unlike what you would find with another material like tile). Given there are less entry points in which a fire can infiltrate your building with a metal roof, it makes it a fire resistant material.
It is important to note, however, that fire resistant does not mean the same as fireproof and you will need to take other precautions in the event of a fire on your property.
Durability is another key reason our customers choose metal roofing. Metal roofing is able to withstand much of Queensland’s volatile weather. And it’s slow to wear meaning you don’t have to worry about repairs as much as you would with another material.
One of the biggest reasons metal roofing is considered a sustainable solution is its recyclability.
Even when metal roofing has reached the end of its lifespan, between 95 to 100 percent of the materials can be recycled. These will then be turned into another roof, or even something else entirely, making it the number one choice for sustainability.
