Metal roofing can really reduce the humidity levels and this stops the growth of horrible mold and mildew in your roof. The metal panels will usually feature ventilation which encourages air flow getting rid of moisture.
Aluminum and steel are the most efficient reflectors of the suns rays and energy. This also reduces the risk of fire in your home too. Surprisingly metal can also be more attractive as a material than you might think!
Concrete tiles are especially popular in the UK and can also be highly efficient. They create a layer of insulation around your property keeping warm air within. In the UK winter heat loss is the main cause of high energy usage and large utility bills. Make sure your roof is also insulated underneath the tiles or in the loft space.
