the rays from the sun--unlike asphalt and fiberglass shingles which absorb heat and are much less energy
efficient. In fact, many metal roofs qualify for the government's energy star program due to the
efficiency of the reflective coatings on the metal panels.
Friendly: by saving energy you will be lessening the
use of fossil fuels required for heating and cooling, which, in turn, will lower environmental air pollution.

clips and storm anchors to secure the individual panels. In addition, the panels are able to withstand
hailstorms better than asphalt and cedar shingle roofing materials.
