No other roofing material can provide the durability, affordability, and beauty as
does a metal roof.
A roof is the forgotten asset of a home. We spend large amounts per square foot
for carpet, hardwood, tile and laminants yet try to get a bargain on a roof that
protects everything we own including one of our largest investments, our home itself.
That same roof we want to get a bargain on must stand up to the elements everyday
battling wind, rain, snow, hail, and uv rays. For that reason, a high quality roof
system offers the best investment for your home or work.
Withstands Strong Winds
A metal roof withstands much stronger winds than asphalt shingles. The 2004 hurricane
season convinced many Florida residents to go with metal roofs. In some areas the
only undamaged roofs were metal roofs.
Areas prone to forest fires frequently encourage the use of metal roofing. California
residents testify of the fire resistance of metal roofs. Some homes with metal roofs
were the only ones standing after the firestorms of 2003. Hot embers driven by the
wind quickly ignite shingle roofs. Metal roofs resist hot embers much longer. The
California Insurance Institute recommends metal roofing as one method of reducing
the risk of home destruction from forest fires.
Resists Hail Damage
Metal roofs withstand damage from hail storms. Asphalt shingles are quickly damaged
during a hail storm. In most cases, metal roofs withstand damage from hail. Generally,
a metal roof does not break, crack or dent as does most other roofing materials.
Long Term Savings
Metal roofs usually cost more initially but the savings start to pile up in the long
run. Some insurance companies will offer discounts of up to 30% to homeowners with
metal roofs. Cooling energy costs are also often reduced because of the reflective
values of light colored metal roofs. Metal roofs will last much longer than shingles
and have less maintenance. The long durable life of metal backed with warranties
make a metal roof a great long term investment.
Metal is Green!
Our rolled-form panels and trim accessories are made from at least 25% post-recycled
content and is 100% recyclable. The coatings we use meet ENERGY STAR® guidelines
to save building cooling energy costs. In many cases, a metal roof can be applied
directly over an existing shingle roof without expensive tear-off and construction
