100 years of performance at ½ the cost of other permanent roofing
systems. Drive around any older town in central Pa. and you’re
guaranteed to find at least a dozen houses, churches, public
buildings with a good old fashioned painted vertical metal roof and
90% of those roofs are at least 50 years old. This is what we
mean when we say a metal roof is a permanent roofing system.
Metal roofing systems are the least expensive roofing system to own
After 20+ years in this industry, and most of it in central, Pa. I can tell you
that the average suburban house is a three bedroom, 2 ½ bath two story
house. The roof area is about 2000 square feet. The average cost of a
painted vertical metal roof is about %30 more than a premium quality
asphalt shingle roof. Now, after 20 years your asphalt roofing system will
be very near it’s serviceable life, your painted vertical metal roof on the
other hand will still have 100% of it’s non-prorated warranty in force for
another 20 years and about a 2% chance of any need for significant
maintenance. So it’s pretty easy figure, with current inflation your asphalt
roofing system will cost double what it does now so if you decide to go the
more “economical route” and have an asphalt shingle roofing system
installed today you’re forcing yourself to spend about twice as much
money as you would if you pay the little bit extra for a painted vertical
metal roof now. Simply because on paper the painted vertical metal roof
looks more expensive. So don’t make the mistake, if you plan on
spending the remainder of your life or up to twenty years in the house
you’re in now get a painted vertical metal roof it pays for itself over and
Metal roofing is energy efficient
This is a no brainer, almost all the painted vertical metal roofing products
on the market today are qualified for the energy star federal tax credit.
More important, however, is the legitimate dollar savings you will realize in
the summer cooling bills. You can realistically use 30% less electricity all
summer long as a direct result of this type of roof installation. It won’t take
long to see the financial benefit from this undertaking. Again making a
painted vertical metal roofing system the smart choice.
I don’t want my house to look like a barn
Of course you don’t, neither would anyone you know, provided you’re not
a cow, sheep or chicken. So as a result the better manufacturers of
painted vertical metal roofing material offer it in up to 20 different colors
and several different alloys to please even the most fussy homeowner.
The other main component of this type of system is in the trim work and
we can fabricate lots of matching or contrasting details to create a
balanced look for those of you who have highly visible roof surfaces.
Because we do so much of this work every day we can really make your
project look commensurate with your expectations. So don’t pre-judge,
cruise our web site and you’ll see dozens of photos that I’m sure will
