It all starts with the finish…

If you’re considering investing in a metal roof, you no doubt want your new roof to beautify your home and increase its value, reduce your utility costs, and save you from future maintenance and replacement. Let’s face it, too; whenever we make a major purchase, we deep down want it to make us look like smart consumers in front of our family, friends, and neighbors. No one wants to look like they spent their money foolishly!

Of course, when it comes to metal roofing, there are so many things to consider. Metal type. Product design. Color. Battens or no battens? Ventilation. Finding the right contractor. It can all be quite overwhelming and is exactly why, at Classic Metal Roofing Systems we focus on providing reliable education and information that can be trusted to guide you to the right decision for you and your home. Fact is, there is no “one size fits all” answer. The best answer is based on the unique needs of you and your home.

Included among our Isaiah Industries team are 19 experienced women and men representing nearly 300 years of industry experience who are available to homeowners day in and day out to answer their questions and provide their ideas and input. That is pretty incredible – by far the most experienced team for residential metal roofing in North America and probably the world. All from little old Piqua, Ohio.

As you consider the important factors that go into your metal roofing decision, we want to share a saying that was coined by Don Miller, the founder of our company, – “It all starts with the finish.”  While Don may have said that 30 years ago, it is a timeless and everlasting statement.

The surface finish on a metal roof provides both durability and beauty for a metal roofing system. Choose the wrong finish, and you will have a roof that does not live up to its expectations. Having a roof that goes from green to white in eight years or is covered with black fungus in three years certainly doesn’t make anyone think that you are a wise consumer!

To help you along your way, we have put together a list of factors that you need to understand about the available finishes on metal roofs. The list includes chemistry, color, energy performance, resistance to climate related issues, and more. You can read the entire list and learn about these important finish factors here.
