Installations of metal roofing have quadrupled over the last decade and it is showing up more and more across Portland and Vancouver.
Metal roofing should last as long as your house, sealing out water, surviving high winds, and easily shedding snow. Metal roofing is resistant to fire, mildew, insects, and rot. Metal roofing is also a popular choice in the Northwest because it is the most sustainable choice. For these reasons, homeowners and building owners across the Pacific Northwest are upgrading their roofs with metal roofing products to boost the value of their homes while saving money.
A Metal Roof is a Green Roof
The first eco-friendly benefit of metal roofing is that it often lasts the lifetime of your home. Since metal roofing lasts many times longer than composition roofing by choosing metal you will prevent up many re-roofings worth of asphalt shingles from ending up in your local landfill.
Also, Taylor metal roofing, the brand we will use on your home, uses recycled material in it’s manufacturing process. And, after many decades have passed and your metal roofing’s lifespan has come to an end the metal roofing can be recycled. If you want a green roof, choose metal roofing.
