Metal roofing naturally contributes to the sustainable building movement. Their high-recycled content, total recyclability, and energy efficiency allow metal roofs to play a pivotal and important role in LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) program requirements.
The metal roof materials we use are exceptional building materials that can credibly claim both recycled content and recyclability by recognized definitions.
Metal roofs typically have a minimum of 25% recycled content.
This level of recycled content allows metal roofing to be routinely included on listings for “green” and recycled content products. This is especially important since the U.S. LEED Certified points are available when specifying metal roofing, including one point for recycled content.
