Original article written 8/21/15

Metal Roofing

As a top metal roof manufacturer, we are pretty biased when it comes to choosing metal panels over traditional asphalt shingles. We believe they are the right choice for every homeowner. Fortunately, more and more homeowners are quickly beginning to realize the advantages of metal roofs, increasing their appeal and becoming a popular option. Solar panels are also easy to install on metal roofs. According to the Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA), the residential metal roofing market has increased by double digits over the past five years.

Metal Roofing Can Be Used For:

We offer roofing services for any building style such as:

  • Riding Arenas
  • Horse Barns
  • Commercial Structures
  • Agricultural Structures
  • Steel Buildings
  • Garages
  • Residential
  • Pole Barn
  • Manufacturing
  • Post Frame Buildings & Post Frame Construction
  • Storage Spaces
  • And More!

Advantages of Metal Roofing

The draw to metal roofing installation is based on the product's durability, fire resistance, versatility, longevity, energy savings, and value. There are many components to metal roofs. The MRA reports that metal roofs:

  • Typically last 2-3 times longer than their asphalt counterparts
  • Can boost resale value by 6%
  • Can decrease insurance premiums by up to 35% (in some states)
  • Reflect the sun's rays, decreasing AC cost
  • Insulates against the cold, decreasing heating costs

Metal Vs Asphalt Roofs

Metal roofs are becoming increasingly popular among homeowners due to their many benefits and quality. One of the main advantages of metal roofs is that they are extremely durable and suitable for all climate types. They can withstand heavy winds and hail, and they are not susceptible to fire or moisture damage.

Asphalt roof material, on the other hand, is much more vulnerable to these elements. In addition, metal roofs are energy efficient, reflecting heat and keeping homes cool in summer. They also last much longer than asphalt roofs, with a lifespan of 50 years or more. For these reasons, metal roofs offer a significant advantage over asphalt roofs.

The Mansea Metal Difference

We Are The Manufacturer

Most of the companies who advertise metal roofing and siding or post-frame buildings are simply reselling products produced by someone else. We produce our own products from rolled steel and have large indoor yards that keep our lumber protected. That way, we control the quality and time of delivery to you. And that creates jobs right here in your home town.

Higher Quality Steel with Superior Finishes

The truth is not all steel is alike, especially when it comes to finishes. That’s why we use Sherwin-Williams WeatherXL™ Coil Coatings. Created to withstand most anything that comes its way, designed to maintain extreme resistance to abrasion, chipping and marring with tremendous color and gloss retention. And you get to select your favorites from more than 22 striking color options

You Won’t Be Shorted On Lumber

When we price a building package, we give you everything you need to ensure structural integrity. Like longer gable posts that extend to the top of the truss, not just tying in at the bottom. And long-lasting pressure-treated wood measuring .60 CCA. You won’t get this quality at a ‘big box’ store. Plus, we use true 6x6’s along with 2x10’s and 2x12’s that are #1 grade.
