Metal Roofing Made Easy

A quality roof is one of the most important ways to protect your home from potential damage and costly repairs. For a durable, great looking roof, no other roof material tops metal.

Modern day metal roofs offer all of the style and beauty of traditional roofing materials only stronger, more durable and longer lasting. There’s certain to be a metal roof style that compliments your home perfectly.

  • Metal Roof Style - Shingle

    Wanting the look of asphalt but with more durability, longevity, and easier maintenance? A metal shingle can look just like asphalt but provides the benefits only a quality metal roof can offer. And you can even get the product in stone-coated, using the same type of granules as regular asphalt!

  • Metal Roof Style - Slate

    Metal panels can closely mimic the distinctive look of smooth, uniform slate tiles. For those who appreciate a classic refined appearance, these metal slate panels provide outstanding performance and value for your home.

  • Metal Roof Style - Tile

    Standard clay or concrete tile roofs can be heavy, yet fragile and costly to maintain. Metal tile, however, has the graceful curves of classic tile, but the lightness and strength of metal. A stone-coated steel tile is also available.

  • Metal Roof Style - Shake

    Metal shake is the investment grade alternative to traditional wooden shake. You'll love the authentic look of wood, while gaining a variety of color choices with longer lasting, more durable metal.

  • Metal Roof Style - Vertical Panel

    Featuring clean lines and a traditional style, vertical panels offer a modern twist to the traditional look of metal roofing. Pre-painted vertical panels are available in a wide range of profiles (rib shapes) and color options.

Residential metal roofing is available in a wide range of materials, coatings and paint options. These options are important and should be considered when selecting your new roof.

  • Metal Roof Material - Steel

    Steel is the most common metal roofing material thanks to its high strength, low weight and long-term durability. It’s also typically the most affordable. All steel roofing is treated with a metallic coating layer to help prevent rust.

  • Metal Roof Material - Aluminum

    Aluminum roofing is both lighter than steel and offers increased corrosion resistance. This key benefit of aluminum roofing makes it an ideal choice for homes built in marine and coastal environments.

  • Metal Roof Material - Copper and Zinc

    Known as Natural Metal, both copper and zinc offer exceptional beauty as well as high corrosion resistance. Natural metal roofing develops a protective layer or patina with age for a stunning and distinctive look ideal for urban districts or historic settings.

  • Metal Roof Material - Anodized Aluminum

    Anodized aluminum is not a coating and therefore will not chip, flake, chalk, or peel, making it a very durable, corrosion and abrasion resistant material. In addition, clear anodize product outperforms paint coatings in terms of SRI value and is considered "cool".

  • Coatings

  • Metal Roof Material - Metallic Coating

    All steel roofing has a protective metallic coating on both sides of the sheet to help protect against rust. The metallic coatings are available in various grades, however MRA recommends a minimum of G-90 (90 ounces of zinc per 100 sq. feet of paneling) for galvanized steel or a minimum of AZ50 for Galvalume steel. Both metallic coatings provide increased longevity and rust protection.

  • Metal Roof Material - Paint

    Most residential metal roofing has a protective paint coating applied to the outside of either the aluminum or metallic-coated steel. Numerous color choices are available including energy saving options.

  • Metal Roof Type - Modular Press-Formed Granular Coated

    Granular coated panels are either thru-fastened or attached with hidden fasteners and coated with an acrylic coating with embedded stone granules on the surface. The panels may be installed over a batten/counter batten wood grid system or directly to the roof deck.
