Metal Roofs: The Best Thing Under The Sun

Metal Roof top solar panels

We’ve all said it at least once: “my electric bill was through the roof!” You wonder how it could possibly be right. How did it get so high? Well, there may be a literal connection between high-energy bills and the expression “through the roof”.

Today, many people are looking to solar energy – captured through rooftop solar panels – to offset costs and take advantage of an underutilized and free resource, the sun. However, the installation of solar cells on most roofs requires drilling into the surface, which leads to, you guessed it, potential leaks. But standing seam metal roofs don’t require drilling to mount the panels, so it’s a win-win: you start capturing solar power and reducing overall energy costs, and your metal roof incurs no damage in the process.

There are a lot of other reasons why metal outshines other roof systems for capturing solar energy. Read all about it at Building Design and Construction.
