The first instinct of most people during these unbearable hot days is to turn on the air conditioning unit, but good roofing contractors know that in this economy, the money-saving option is metal roofing for all residents of Colorado Springs.

According to, among the different kinds of materials available in the market, metal is the best for cities with warmer weather like Colorado Springs because:

In terms of reflectivity, white metal roofing actually doesn’t perform as well as white flat and white barrel tiles. It reflects about 66 percent of the sun’s energy away from a roof. But white metal roofing does have one edge: Compared to other roofing types, it cools faster at night, and holds less heat for shorter periods [source: Better Homes and Gardens].

Most metal roofing will cost 20 to 30 percent more than traditional roofing, but in energy savings, durability and lowered maintenance, it is a cost saver overall [source: Metal Roofing Alliance].

As roofing material, metal is very durable and versatile, and a great choice for long-term performance, the reflective coating keeps roofing in Colorado Springs, cool and comfortable for warmer weather in the city.
