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.
