Does a Metal Roof Help to Cool Your Home in the Summer?

Does a Metal Roof Help to Cool Your Home in the Summer?

It’s no wonder that as you’re contemplating a new roof during the summer, you must be wondering what you can do to keep your house cooler, especially if you’re in the Southeast. We’re known for experiencing hot, humid summers every year from May until September when things finally start to cool off. 

Want to know a secret? Modern metal roofing is actually cooler than traditional asphalt, wood, tile or concrete shingles! That’s right: while we’ve often heard (and experienced) metal that’s heated throughout the day and stayed warm long into the night, the metal and insulation we use at Pioneer Metals keeps your roof – and your home – cool throughout the hot summers of the South.

Metal Roofs are an Energy Efficient Option

When you’re shopping for a new roof, there are so many things to consider:

  • Do you go with shingles? 
  • What type of shingles? 
  • Who to hire as your roofing contractor? 
  • Where to purchase the materials? 

The main consideration is what materials to go with. At Pioneer Metals, we recommend a metal roof. The benefits of a metal roof are far-reaching and long-lasting. However, one of the main benefits of a metal roof is its energy efficiency. 

As more and more news outlets talk about the Green Revolution, more consumers are becoming aware of what they can do to protect the Earth and their wallets. A metal roof provides insulation during the cold months to keep your home warmer, as well as reflecting the sun’s waves during the summer to keep your home cooler. Now, factor in how much you spend to heat and cool your home, and you’re saving money from the start!
