Why the Paint System Matters
The use of steel as a roofing material is a growing trend among residential and commercial builders across the country. Steel roofing is more durable, environmentally friendlier, and easier to install than traditional roofing materials. The paint system plays an important role in steel roofing for aesthetics, energy efficiency, and longevity.
Like many environmentally friendly products, homeowners sometimes worry that steel roofing looks too non-traditional to be considered for their roof. This is where expert knowledge of the potential of steel roofing will help you sell the idea to your clients. While unpainted galvanized steel would look industrial in most residential settings, there are many beautiful color options available today to suit any residential building needs. In fact, the expansion of the steel roofing and siding industry as a residential solution has created more colors and design options than ever before. For example, with Midwest Manufacturing's® Pro-Rib® and Pro-Snap® steel panel selection, your homeowners can choose from dozens of color options, including multi-tone designs made to look like traditional shingles.
