"I considered different materials for the roof and after looking at several different options, decided to go with a metal roof.
"The environmental aspect of the roofing, I looked at quite a bit. The metal itself is made out of recyclable material. We put our metal roof right over top of the old asphalt roof, so we did not have to send the asphalt shingles to the landfill. And, the house stays cooler in the summer."
— Homeowner, Saint Louis, Missouri
"It’s not on yet, but my metal roof will make my log cabin a year round livable home, and much more salable when the time comes to sell it."
— David Marshall, Michigan
"I did most of my research on your website. I read all the benefits material and went through the different styles of roofs you have. I also found the contractor I used on your Find A Contractor searcher here in Lake Havasu.
"When the salesman came over to sign the contract (second visit) and for me to make my final decision he brought 3 new colors (blue, green and a mission gold). I chose the mission gold tile and it looks wonderful with my champaign stucco walls. The roofing installers were very good, answered my questions, and did a very good job."
— Cammie Page, Arizona
"Because we built our own house, we were able to choose everything. We've chosen a metal roof because it's environmentally friendly, and it's also cost effective.
"We wanted something that would blend in, but that would stand out as well. It goes really nice with our neighborhood. I think it was the best choice for our house. It looks like traditional shingles - I think it's a beautiful roof."
— Homeowners, Gatineau, Quebec
"The MRA website certainly helped a lot in answering my questions. I went through all the information offered on your site to get better informed.
"I now have a metal roof installed. I believe it was a good choice -- I definitely did not want to replace wooden shingles with another set of wooden shingles! My roof did well during last winter's rain and wind-gusts.
"My problems are solved for several decades! Thanks for keeping me informed!"
— Frank Selhurst, Maryland
"We found the MRA website looking for colors that we may be interested in. We have had our roof done and it looks great!!!! Not sure of the dimensions (my hubby knows that stuff) but the total cost was much more reasonable than we expected."
— Darby Leonard, New York
"Driving in, seeing our house, I really like the way the roof looks. We like the durability, the low maintenance - no maintenance as far as I'm aware.
"Probably our primary reason would be the fire resistant quality of it. In November of 2008 there was a wildfire and our house was a total loss. That's why we decided on a metal roof."
— Homeowner, Santa Barbara, California
"Thanks for your help. As of today I found someone in Phoenix and he is going to get me a list of people in and around our area to show us what they have, measure our roof and hope to do the work. I have had great response from people far away that are also willing to work with us. Thanks again for everything."

As the #1 educational resource for the residential metal roofing industry, the Metal Roofing Alliance helps match metal roofing contractors with interested home owners in your area. We help consumers decide if a metal roof is right for their home, and when they're ready, provide them with a list of contractors near their home.
After learning about all that metal roofing has to offer through MetalRoofing.com, many homeowners are interested in installing a metal roof themselves. We make this home improvement project possible by directly connecting these homeowners to you, their local distributor.
The goal of the MRA is to promote residential metal roofing by educating consumers on the many benefits of metal roofing. As a member manufacturer, you'll help promote the use of residential metal roofing to interested consumers, and gain access to consumer leads.
