Solid State Construction can replace your existing roof with a durable new metal roof. Metal roofing has been gaining popularity for residential applications after being used for years in commercial roofing. Metal roofs are available in many different styles, from the classic standing seam (long vertical seams) to simulated slate and wood shingle styles. There are even granulated metal roofs that look exactly like asphalt shingle roofs.
The recent increase in popularity of metal roofs is mainly due to the fact that they are by far the most eco-friendly roof available. Although the initial cost of a metal roof replacement is higher, the lifespan of a typical metal roof is two to three times that of a typical asphalt roof. Metal is also one of the easiest materials to recycle when it does need to be replaced.
Other Benefits of a Metal Roof
In addition, a hot water solar array can be placed under a metal roof to generate passive solar energy for use in hot water, radiant floor and other applications, without the awkward-looking rooftop solar collection panels. If you do choose to add photo-voltaic panels, they can be clamped directly onto the ribs of the standing seam panels. This avoids the need to drill holes in you new roof as would be required with a n asphalt roof.
Because rainwater run-off from most metal roofing systems does not contain the same toxins created by an asphalt roof, a rain water collection and filtration system can easily be added to a metal roofing system to supply or supplement a home’s water supply.
