Energy star tax credit

Purlin installation

On most of the metal roofs that we install, we are actually able to leave the existing shingle roof on the house, install 1x4 boards (purlins) over the existing shingles, and anchor the metal to these purlins. This creates a radiant heat barrier between the existing shingle roof and the new metal roof, which will also be reflecting up to 60% of the sun's rays (depending on the color). This method has the added benefit of decreasing installation costs by avoiding the takeoff process, and keeping your old roof out of the landfill. These energy-saving features, as well as the tax credit, and increased longevity of your new roof, often combine to make metal the most cost effective way to replace your shingle roof.
