Question List

Why should I choose a metal roof over the typical asphalt roof?

The three biggest advantages of metal roofing are that it lasts much longer, it’s more energy efficient, and it’s more attractive.

The facts tell the tale. An asphalt roof typically lasts 10 to 20 years and then it is time to pay for another roof replacement. Metal roofing lasts 2 to 3 times longer and is less likely to suffer storm damage.

It also can save you money because it is more energy efficient.

Finally, it is also has a lot more options and styles. You’ll get a roof that matches your home and adds to its curb appeal.

Will you have the lowest price?

Our experience tells us that it is always possible to find someone willing to bid lower if that’s what you want.

Instead of focusing on “being the cheapest,” we focus on delivering the best overall value. Our metal roofs last longer and they are installed by true experts, not low-cost temporary labor. While that costs a bit more up front, we firmly believe we are delivering the best long-term value in roofing.

When it rains, will it sound loud on the roof?

No. For typical homes, the deep-textured folds in metal shingle products will stop any louder sounds you might expect. Also, attic space and ventilation take care of the role of sound absorption no matter what kind of roofing material you have.

Can skylights be installed with on a metal roof?

Yes. Skylights and other normal protrusions are fine with a metal roof. As with any other roofing, it is crucial that experienced installers properly flash skylights. In some cases, we may recommend replacing existing skylights if they are aging and would need replaced soon anyway.
