Your metal roof is a permanent solution

Many consumers are quickly finding out that today’s asphalt is expected to last 12-15 years at most. In some cases, asphalt will require replacement in as little as 8 years! Metal is for “life”. We provide a 50-year manufacturer’s warranty that is transferable to an additional owner. 

Great protection for your home 

Steel and zinc both react with the environment, but zinc reacts slightly faster; when exposed to the environment, zinc reacts first and leaves the steel unaffected, that is, the zinc is sacrificed to protect the steel. 

Metal roofing will allow less heat into the attic 

MetalWorks® Metal Shingles, due to the air cavity behind the shingle, and the limited direct contact with the deck, conduct significantly less heat into the attic space, as compared to asphalt shingles.

Embossed and stamped

By embossing and stamping patterns in the shingles and engineering them close to the roof deck, MetalWorks® products are tremendously resilient against foot traffic and hail; this is especially true of the AstonWood and Slate profiles (UL Class 4 Hail Resistance – the highest possible)
