Green Metal Roofing
If you are looking to either retrofit your existing roof, replace your worn out shingles, or build a new house going green is the way to go. There are many opportunities to provide a more energy-efficient home or building.
One way to go green is by upgrading your old shingle roof to a metal roof. Many may think that by having a metal roof it will increase their A/C bill, but they are wrong. Insulation from cool metal roofing actually offers increased energy savings. The savings that a metal roof brings are not only limited to your wallet. Metal roofs do their part in helping out the environment. At N.A.R, our metal roofs do just this and hold up to the highest of standards. Our metal roofs are sustainable, recyclable, fireproof, durable, and lightweight. The panels are made from 25-35 percent recycled materials.
Metal roofs are not just seen as green but also make an architectural statement. They can come in a multitude of colors, matching the existing color of your house. Some colors enable you to save more money than others. Finding a roof that saves you that most money and matches the color of your building ensures that you will get the most out of your roof for many years to come. At N.A.R., many of our Cool Roof colors have reflectivity performance levels that meet Energy Star criteria at 2:12 pitch or greater. The panels can come in many different shapes and sizes as well.
As one of the leading “Green” authoritative organizations in our industry, The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) sets the environmental standards. They have constructed a Green Building Rating System™ to help aid businesses in going green by giving them the tools they need as well as checking how well they are doing.
