Metal Roofing - Energy Savings

Metal Roof Energy Savings in Houston

Energy savings is one of the main factors many homeowners are concerned about today. Aluminum roofs reflect over 94% of radiant heat, and air pockets in the aluminum roof help to keep conductive heat from inside the house. Many metal roofs have reflective paint finishes that also help reduce the radiant heat penetration, resulting in lower utility bills. Most studies have shown a reduction in Kilowatt-hours, between 18-25%. However, composition roofs lay directly on the decking surface without a space between the roof deck and composition shingles. This is the same heat that initiates the break down of the durability in the composition roof.
