It’s a new day, when regular day-to-day operations that have worked for years aren’t quite as effective they once were. In more recent years, companies have been coming out with revolutionary new ways for cars to notice obstacles before drivers do, people to queue up movies on TVs anytime with no disc, and gaming consoles to interpret desires simply by listening.
Even home architecture has been transformed; nowadays, you can find dozens of homes with metal rooftops. When it comes to home living, today is the age of a new “iron curtain.” Here are a few specific ways in which metal is easier than the old traditional roofing materials:
- Endurance– Old-school roofing materials last about 20 years on average. A metal roof can hold up for as long as 70 years.
- Resistance– This kind of roof can deflect flames and lightning bolts that come its way, experiencing these violent elements without a scratch. It can also stay perfectly intact in the face of a wind that’s twice as fast as a car on a highway.
- Economy– Metal roofs reflect heat from the sun, balancing warmer and cooler temperatures inside. As a result, you can save up to 25% on home cooling.
- Conservation– These roofs are made from as much as 95% recycled material, and can be fully renewed after they expire, regardless of the content portions. Thrown-out traditional roofs account for an average of over 54 million pounds’ worth of waste daily.
