Black Metal Roofing Pros and Cons

Black metal roofing, like any roofing material, comes with advantages and disadvantages. Here, we’ll explore the pros and cons.

Black Roof Pros

  • It’s durable—Metal roofing, including black, will stand the test of time, even in the face of harsh weather like rain, snow, hail, and wind. In fact, it can last decades with proper maintenance.
  • It’s in style—A sleek, industrial look is in, and black metal roofs lend this look to any residential or commercial building. It can also complement various architectural styles, giving a sophisticated appearance.
  • It’s durable and low-maintenance—All metal roofing is one of the most durable and low-maintenance choices, and black is no exception.
  • It’s versatile and neutral—Black is a versatile design choice that blends well with a variety of colors and styles.

Black Roof Cons

  • It absorbs more heat—Black building materials naturally absorb more heat. At the same time, meral roofing is still more efficient than shingles. And it’s always important to consider insulation and choose a company that offers Energy Star-approved Cool Chemistry® paint systems for the highest energy efficiency.
  • It can fade faster—Darker colors are prone to faster fading—but by choosing the right black metal roof supplier, you can avoid this. Green Tree Metals offers a 30-year fading/chalking warranty.

Alternatives to Black Metal Roof Panels

If you like the look of a dark roof but aren’t sure you want to commit to black, there are other roof colors you can consider.

Is a Black Metal Roof House Energy Efficient?

A black roof has a lower albedo effect—meaning it has less ability to reflect sunlight and therefore absorbs more heat than lighter-colored roofs. This can contribute to heat retention, which can lead to higher indoor temperatures. This is a plus during colder months—naturally lowering heating bills. In the summer months, however, it can cause higher energy bills because of increased demands on air conditioning units. However, the answer isn’t always that simple. With the right black metal roof coating, installation, and insulation, black metal roofs can be as energy-efficient (or more so) than other roofing alternatives. Green Tree Metals offers the highest quality metal roofing, installation, and warranties—with the latest Energy Star-approved Cool Chemistry® paint systems that will keep your roof cooler in our sunny southern climate.

How do I choose the right black metal roof panels?

If you’ve decided on a black metal roof, the next decision to make is which kind of metal roof system/panel. Here are some key considerations:

  • Budget. Metal roofing systems in general are a very good value based on their initial cost and overall lifespan. But some varieties, like Tuff Rib are known to be more economical than others; typically, concealed fastener metal roofing systems are more expensive.
  • Style. The aforementioned concealed fastener systems provide a sleek, uninterrupted profile since the fasteners (bolts) are hidden. These might be the best option for residential and commercial applications where the aesthetics are of concern. Board & Batten is another common choice for a higher-end aesthetic. Others, however, prefer the rustic, classic look of an exposed fastener system, so ultimately, it comes down to your personal preference!
  • Use/Environment. Always consider your application and environment when choosing a metal roof panel system. Some provide greater energy efficiency, durability, and cost efficiency than others. For this, it pays to work with an expert who can help guide you toward the right system for your needs. Contact Green Tree Metals today for a free quote!
