The Green Metal Roof

American Metal Roofs is making Up North greener, one roof at a time. The Flint-based company, with a branch in Kalkaska, uses 95 percent recycled materials in its long-lasting roofs. When these roofs finally do wear out (think: probably not in your lifetime) they are 100 percent recyclable. That reduces landfill waste in the long run. In the short run? These metal roofs can be installed directly over your existing shingle roofing keeping those shingles out of the landfill. That also adds up to less labor and waste disposal costs for you.

Metal roofing can also reduce your energy costs by up to 20 percent because it reflects intense heat from the sun and reduces dependency on air conditioning during long summer months.

More reasons why these made-in-Michigan roofs are made for Up North: winter snows slip off them easily, and their textured surface has a rugged, natural look.
