The Ultimate Roof For Going Green
- Made From Over 95% Recycled Materials
- Guaranteed Sustainability
- Incredible Energy Savings
- Installs Over Most Existing Roofs, Reducing Landfill
A Classic Metal Roofing System is a “Green Roof” - it is made from 95% recycled aluminum and its long life expectancy guarantees sustainability. Add in energy efficiency and the ability to be installed over most existing roofs (avoiding landfill disposal of old materials) and you have what is likely the most environmentally-friendly roof available to homeowners today!
The fact of the matter is that contemporary roofing materials start to deteriorate the moment it is installed on your roof.
- According to the asphalt roofing industry, the average lifespan of traditional shingles is ONLY 12-17 years!
- Heavily pro-rated or limited warranties on these products bring little or no value to property owners.
- Wood shingles are no better, deteriorating quickly in Minnesota’s unique weather and the fact that manufactures have to chop down trees to make them: NOT ENVORMENTALLY FRIENDLY.
A “Classic Metal Roof” is an investment in your home, which provides an immediate and ongoing increase to your homes value. While we admit that it does have a slightly higher upfront cost, in the long run, no other roofing material will save you more money.
Save On Your Energy Bills
Available Kynar 500® and Hylar 5000® coating incorporates the advanced HI-R Heat Barrier coating, which creates a cooler, more efficient home due to the special reflective pigments embedded in the finish. The complex chemical structure of these pigments reflects away the infrared portion of the sun's rays most responsible for heat. A metal roof coated with HI-R reflects away the sun's heat leaving the attic space and the entire building much cooler in the summer. In the winter, reflected heat from the sun helps the roof shed snow and ice buildup evenly and quickly. Homeowners with a metal roof report saving up to 20% or more on their energy costs.
- Metal roofs reduce attic heat gain by up to 34%
- Metal roofs reflects the sun's radiant energy
- Metal roofs are U.S. Energy Star compliant
Save On Removal and Disposal Costs
A high-tech metal roof will usually install over existing roofs. As a result, you save a significant amount of money in labor and disposal costs because there is no old roof to remove or debris to haul away.
As the technology of the industry constantly improves, we are committed to improving with it in order to make sure that we are always producing only the highest quality metal roofing systems possible.
This commitment to quality often involves updating certain aspects of our product design.
As a result, we introduce HI-R, a new reflective pigment technology.
HI-R is a superior quality coating system that incorporates specially formulated infrared reflective pigments that will keep your home much cooler, lower your bills, and turn your home into one of the most energy-efficient homes on the planet.
Metal Roofing Can Withstand The Elements
A unique four-way interlock and nail clip system assures a weather-tight, wind-resistant hold on all four sides of a metal roof. This interlock system has been proven in laboratory tests to remain watertight even during wind-driven rain of over 110 miles per hour. Metal roofing systems withstood the ravages of Andrew and Hugo, two of the worst of the century, without blowing off or leaking, saving homeowners costly repairs.
Homeowners who plan to remain in their home through at least one more re-roofing cycles (usually 12 - 17 years and sometimes as little as 10), will see a significant financial benefit from a Classic roof that will not have to be replaced for as long as you own your home.
A Classic Metal Roof will also save you money on ever-increasing home energy bills, roof patches and repairs, as well as costly and messy re-roofing with what is known to be temporary roofing products.
