Metal roofing means investment grade roofing

If you are considering a metal roofing system, there are a few important things to keep in mind:

1. Always consult with a metal roofing expert. Their experience and knowledge can be the difference in a positive and effective project outcome.

2. Only work with certified metal installers that have extensive experience and certifications from metal roofing manufacturers. Warranty compliance can be jeopardized without this and is in place for the protection of the homeowner as well as the manufacturer.

3. Ask to see examples of different styles of metal roofing on actual homes. Request a list of homes in your area for viewing.

4. When comparing different styles and manufacturers of metal roofing, look at the warranties for materials, color/coatings and labor.

5. Recognize that while the initial investment is greater, you will never have to re-roof again. You will not be contributing to the 13 billion+ pounds of asphalt shingles and other disposable roofing materials that fill our landfills annually.

Metal roofing for private, commercial, re-roof and new construction projects continues to outpace the competition.

Why you ask?

With ever increasing information available, the average homeowner is more aware than ever of the benefits of metal roofing and its clear advantages over roofing materials like asphalt shingles. While metal roofs are known for durability and energy-efficiency, their initial cost sometimes leads to the wrong impression that they might be too expensive. The reality, however, is far different; metal roofs actually provide more financial benefits than traditional asphalt shingles, producing an amazing return on investment that few other materials can match which is why metal roofs have become the second largest residential roofing product on the market today. The Metal Roofing Alliance, a coalition dedicated to educating consumers about the benefits of modern metal roofing, is a tremendous national resource for information and trends regarding metal roofing. .
