Manufacturers and Energy Star Ratings
Many of our manufacturers have Enery Star ratings. Either Galvalume or painted metal is going to provide a great barrier for your home from the brutal UV rays. Also, metal roofing is a great insulator, helping to keep your home cool. Energy Star qualified roof products can help reduce the amount of air conditioning needed in buildings, and can reduce peak cooling demand by 10-15 percent, where as asphalt shingles tend to slowly deteriorate because of the material that they are made of and the suns harsh UV rays.
