Metal roof selected for LEED home for durability and style

A metal roof in a classic style is part of a new green home project in Glastonbury, Conn.

Classic Metal Roofs, LLC of Stow, Mass., was recently chosen to partner on a new residential construction project in Glastonbury. The company was selected based on the homeowners' goals to build the most durable, energy-efficient and healthy home possible.

The home, being built by Glastonbury Builders, utilizes the latest in energy-efficient and sustainable building technology. On a home designed to drastically reduce energy costs while withstanding hurricane-force winds, a metal roof was the most logical option for the project.

“As a company, we firmly believe that metal is the ideal roofing material for homeowners looking to invest in their home while improving its performance and health," said Michael Gonet, senior partner of Classic Metal Roofs. "We are seeing more and more New England homeowners agree with us as they realize the benefits of metal roofing."

The homeowners in Glastonbury chose a combination of Oxford Shingle and ClickLock Standing Seam manufactured by Classic Metal Roofing Systems. Both products are made from 95 percent post-consumer recycled aluminum and are tested to last a lifetime. The metal roofing design also aids the homeowners in meeting their goals for energy efficiency and performance.

“We are honored to be included on this revolutionary project," said Todd Miller, president of Classic Metal Roofing Systems.
