Solar panels on green home

We recently celebrated Earth Day, and one of the kindest choices you can make for your home is selecting a metal roof.

A metal roof is sustainable because it’s designed to last 50-plus years, it’s made from recycled materials and it’s energy-efficient.

Adding solar panels to your roof is another great, environmentally green option, especially since your electricity is essentially free after you pay off the equipment cost.

And there’s no better roof to install those solar panels than a metal roof because you have much less roof maintenance compared to other types.
