LAKE CITY, Colo. — The Metal Roofing Alliance and Green Builder Media have co-produced a new eBook that aims to explain why “metal roofs are the best choice for today’s high-performance homes — and in many areas of the country, the only choice.”

“Metal Roofs have proven themselves in storm after storm, fire after fire, to be a stalwart defense against disaster,” the organizations said in a joint release. “They also happen to be stunning.”

The ebook, called "Sustainable Masterpieces: Metal Roofs Deliver When It Matters", includes examples of sustainable roofs options available today.

The projects are backdropped with useful information, including:

  • The harrowing hurricane story that won the Metal Roofing Alliance’s Top Survivor award
