Metal is considered the most environmentally friendly and sustainable roofing material available. Metal roofs are 100% recyclable and are made with a minimum of 25% recycled material, depending on the type of metal. Metal roofs can often be installed over an existing roof, eliminating the environmental impact of disposal. Metal roofing weighs half as much as asphalt, allowing newly constructed homes to be designed with a lighter structure. In contrast, a typical asphalt roof contains hundreds of gallons of crude oil and needs to be replaced every 12-20 years depending on the pitch of the roof. Approximately 2 billion pounds of asphalt shingles are dumped into Canadian landfills every year.
