Benefits of an Englert Metal Roofing System
If you are concerned about longevity, durability, and energy efficiency then you should certainly consider an Englert metal roof. While a standard asphalt shingle roof has an expected lifespan of 20-25 years, Englert metal roofing systems can last for over a century. Englert offers 3 types of metals for your roofing system, all of which are completely recyclable and can earn up to 6 LEED credits:
Galvalume & Galvalume Plus
Made from steel coated with a unique Aluminum-Zinc alloy, Galvalume and Galvalume Plus offer superior corrosion resistance and incredible longevity. Available in both raw and pre-painted versions, you are certain to find a style that suits your project.
While more expensive than other metal roofing materials, copper has been popular for centuries thanks to its resistance to rust and durability. Because it does not have a finish it will never scratch or peel and over time it will weather into a lovely green patina.
Thanks to its strength, durability, and low weight, aluminum is an excellent choice for a metal roofing system. Aluminum does not rust and it’s especially useful in coastal climates where salty air can quickly lead to corrosion. It is also popular due to the fact that its light weight means it does not need structural reinforcement prior to installation. Aluminum must be protected by a painted finish.
In addition to high quality metal roofing products, Englert also offers a cutting edge line of environmentally-friendly paints that are designed to avoid heat absorption, keeping your building cool in hot weather and warm in winter. Available in 26 finishes, Ultra-Cool paints are LEED-compliant, EnergyStar certified, and backed by excellent warranties.
