With over 55 years of experience, Metal Sales is the nation’s largest manufacturer of metal roofing, wall and building systems. There's no one else close.
Metal roofing offers a fairly long list of benefits. When compared to traditional single roofs, they are hands-down more durable. Metal roofs can last up to 50 or 60 years, while a shingle roof will need to be replaced in about half of that time. And when it is time to replace them, the metal panels are recyclable, which contributes less material to landfills.
Metal roofs are customizable in a wide selection of colors and materials range from minimalistic
and cost-effective to sleek and modern. As the residential sector has adopted metal roofing for environmental reasons, newer decorative styles are becoming available as well.
Metal roofs are also more sustainable in other ways. As the cost of utilities continues to rise and we all try a little harder to lessen our impact on the environment, energy-efficient building materials become much more important. Depending on the region and personal habits, a metal roof on a residential home can decrease energy bills by up to 40%. Reflective metal roofing can reduce air temperatures in a building by an average of 12 degrees, lowering cooling costs.
When you choose a roof, the most common choices are shingles and metal roof panels. Metal roofing systems offer several benefits over shingles, including:
Metal roofing is made to last longer than any other roofing material on the market. Many consumers decide to choose metal panels because, depending on the substrate material, metal roofing can go 60 or more years without signs of corrosion
When properly installed, metal roofing is designed to withstand strong winds, stand up to the elements, and keep rodents and other animals out. Metal roof panels are also often manufactured to be Class A fire-rated and non-combustible.
Everything from manufactured excess scraps to tear-off metal to old panels can be turned into new metal panels, keeping scraps in landfills
to a minimum.
Metal roofing systems are a cost-effective investment since many manufacturers, suppliers, and installers offer ample warranties to consumers.
Metal Sales has a large selection of metal roof panels to help consumers create the roofing they need. If you need corrugated, galvanized, steel, aluminum, copper, stainless steel or weathering steel, we have a substrate material for your project.

Metal Sales supports ongoing professional education to architects and their profession. As an AIA/CES registered provider in the American Institute of Architects Continuing Education Systems, Metal Sales offers learning opportunities to expand knowledge of the features and applications of metal roofs and walls in the building envelope.
The course will give a general overview of the key aspects of the application, substrate selection, coating options, and fundamental benefits of metal roof and wall panels. This course is meant to give a baseline understanding of metal panels to those with limited experience and enhance and strengthen the knowledge base of those with experience with metal panels.
This course starts with a review of the evolution of exterior wall design and then focuses on back-ventilated rainscreen walls. Discussed are the anatomy of rainscreen walls and the available options in the outermost cladding elements. The course ends with short case
Cold-formed steel buildings are reliable and cost-effective buildings for a wide variety of applications like garages, homes, barns, gyms and more. People have gravitated to cold-formed steel buildings because of the durability that steel provides.
Unlike wood, steel does not crack or warp. Steel is also non-combustible, impervious to pests that chew other building materials and last decades. In addition, cold-formed steel buildings are known for quick lead time, quick construction and quick delivery.
