Your roof bears the brunt of your local weather conditions, and in Queensland, that means a lot of heat. But with quality residential metal roofing, you can help to reduce your energy bills. We’re talking, of course, about keeping your home cool in summer. Air conditioning costs, and energy costs in general are rising, but metal roofing offers excellent thermal insulating properties.
However, you need to be smart about the colour you choose. A lighter roof helps to reflect sunlight and heat away from your home, further reducing your cooling expenses. A darker roof may be more suitable in cooler climates, as it will attract heat from the sun.
