Metal Roofing Makes Impact on Earth Day!

Searching for ideas to make your home greener, with a smaller eco-impact?  This Earth Day, start by looking up — the roof over your head can make a big difference to the environment.

Most people never think about their roof until there is a problem.  Planning ahead is key for making eco-friendly home choices.

Consider these Earth Day roofing facts:

  • Did you know - asphalt shingles are petroleum-based, with a huge environmental impact?  Asphalt shingles increase dependency on fossil fuels, must be replaced every 15-20 years, and there's no good way to dispose of them – landfills are full of asphalt shingles.
  • Eco-friendly products, including metal roofs, are rapidly replacing petroleum-based shingles.   McGraw-Hill Construction and Analytics' survey showed metal roofing now comprises 11 percent of the residential re-roofing market, more than doubling in just ten years.  Visit the Metal Roofing Alliance .
  • Highly reflective "cool" colored metal roofs look just like traditional roofs, provide year-round relief from high energy costs, and are sustainable products.
  • Roofing tax credits are available.  Homeowners who make energy efficient updates to their home-including the installation of a painted or coated Energy Star labeled metal roof by December 31, 2010 — may be eligible for a tax credit worth 30 percent of the material costs up to $1,500 per home.
  • Installing a metal roof reduces a home's energy needs. Tests conducted by Oak Ridge National Laboratories prove that a cool metal roof can save a homeowner up to 25 percent in cooling costs compared to a dark-gray asphalt shingle.
  • ORNL's field tests have also shown the combination of venting and increased reflectance can reduce heat penetrating the roof deck by about 45 percent for stone-coated metal roofs compared to an asphalt shingle roof in certain climates. Ongoi...

Residential Re-Roofing 2010: Beauty and Watertightness

The folks at Schmidt Siding and Windows in Mankato, Minn. , only offer products they believe in, so they have to be top quality products. Jim Hoeckert says Schmidt has been selling and installing metal roofing for about five years, installing eight jobs the first year and almost 50 in 2009.

Aesthetics is a big seller for the roofing products Schmidt Siding and Windows has on display in its showroom — and they’re only metal roofing products. The recent paint innovation by Edco Products to its line of Arrowline has been an attractive choice. Edco enhances its original shake and slate panels with lighter and darker tones that complement the base color.

“And this year, all of Edco’s colors qualify for the tax credit,” Hoeckert says. “That has driven sales for us.”

Problem: The homeowners of this log home chose a standing seam roof when it was built in the 1980s because they never wanted to re-roof. Eventually, they had some paint issues around skylights — rust stains, some scratches — and tried to touch up the paint. The end results weren’t good. The standing seam roof also had some oil canning issues the homeowner didn’t like.

They still wanted to go with a metal roof — because they never wanted to re-roof. They appreciated the durability of metal, but wanted a different look.

Options: Hoeckert presented a couple of options: stone-coated metal shingles from Gerard and the Enhanced Shake from Edco Products. Up until that point, Schmidt Siding and Window had only installed Edco’s “Enhanced” roofing on one home.

Selling Point: The homeowners were still interested in having the Minnesota winter snow slide off their roof, so they opted for the Enhanced Shake.

“When the homeowners saw the brochure, they fell in love with it,” Hoeckert says. “They also liked the four-way locking system, top and bottom, side to side, and the wind warranty. We screw down everything so people are just comfortable with it. They know it will be the last roof they install.”

The Enhanced Shake in Hartford Green was not too different from the original standing seam roof, but a little more eye-catching.

Hoeckert said after tearing off the standing seam roofing, Schmidt installed Interwrap’s Titanium synthetic underlayment and proceeded with the i...
