Metal roofs are also energy efficient. A metal roof can reflect the sun’s energy and block heat transmission from the roof to building members and living space. “ Paint manufacturers have also come up with good reflective properties for the coatings so you can reduce your cooling bills in the summer by 25 percent,” Hippard says. There are also currently tax credits available for putting metal roofs on your principal residence. Properly ventilating the roof is vitally important to its efficiency and lifespan.
