The environmentally green benefits of metal roofing

Posted on 14 September, 2018 at 16:50

Metal roofing is environmentally friendly, energy efficient and green. Steel products have the highest recycling rate, by far, of all the recycled materials. Studies have shown that the recovery rate for steel is close  to 100% and is easily separated from other materials by using magnets at recycling plants and waste disposal sites. All new steel is made with 30% recycled steel and less energy is used to extrude this material than that used to extrude natural iron or other natural materials. Steel can be recycled over and over increasing its lifespan and decreasing it’s impact on the environment. Metal roofing is a strong, durable and cost effective material that suits many building designs and roofing applications. It comes in a wide range of colour choices backed by Bluescope Steel warranties.
