2. PROPER VENTILATION HELPS INSULATE HOME
Metrotile roofs are known as “cool roofs”. This means they have the ability to cut building owners’ energy costs because they reduce the need for air conditioning.
Metrotile roofing products are designed to be elevated from the roof deck which creates a natural air flow referred to as “Above Sheathing Ventilation”. This ventilation prevents heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter. In addition to proper attic insulation, this can help lower electric costs associated with heating/cooling.
3. THE LAST ROOF YOU’LL NEED
Our roof products exceed every common benchmark for strength and durability. In fact, our roofs are fire and earthquake safe, hail and wind resistant and will never warp or rust like other materials. Even if you live in an area prone to severe weather events like hail or hurricanes, a Metrotile roof is likely the last roof you’ll ever need to purchase.
