Why consider using investment grade metal roofing? Here are some reasons:

  • Lightweight:  50-70% lighter than a traditional asphalt shingle roof. Decreases load on roof with snow build up.
  • Resistance:  Most resistant roofing material to fire, hail and wind.
  • Energy Efficient:  You can typically expect to save 20% a year on heating and air conditioning costs. Metal roofs have up to 50% more reflectivity. This keeps your home cooler in the summer. Quality metal roofing meets the federal governments Energy Star Program.
  • Lower Insurance Costs:  You are eligible to receive a discount on homeowners insurance in Michigan through certain carriers. This further repays your investment.
  • Color Choices:  Metal roofs are offered in a wide variety of colors. This gives a home greater eye appeal. Architects are demanding metal roofs on their commercial projects because of the inherent good looks of metal.
  • Water Tightness:  Metal roofs have much greater water tightness then traditional roofing. This greatly reduces the chance of mold.
  • Save on Tear Off Costs:  Most metal roofing can be put on over existing roofing.
