Metal roofs are eco-friendly roofs. They absorb less heat and reduce the need to cool a home by 20.
Metal roofs are eco-friendly and generally made of steel, aluminum, and copper.
Steel gets coated with either zinc or a mixture of aluminum and zinc. The thicker the coat the more it cost.
Aluminum doesn't get coated in metallic but it does get painted.
Copper doesn't get coated in metallic or painted because it can withstand on its own.
How they help the enviornment
Metal roofs help cut down on energy bills by not having to use the air conditioning or heat as much.
