Metal Roofing Buyer's Guide


For homeowners, there’s no question that putting on a new roof is a significant investment. Making a good choice is the key to performance, reliability and long-term value for the dollar, while a poor decision can result in expensive repairs, or worse, having to re-roof again in just a few short years.


With that in mind, the Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA) released a comprehensive Residential Metal Roofing Buyer’s Guide. Available for free, the 23-page guide takes homeowners through extensive details and processes of how to choose, what to expect, and how to make the right decision when it comes to selecting a new metal roof for their home.


The MRA Metal Roofing Buyer’s Guide covers topics including:

  • How to know it’s time for a new roof
  • Regional considerations/protection against severe climate conditions
  • Roofing materials comparisons
  • Metal roofing styles, colors, and coatings
  • How to choose a quality metal roof
  • Performance capabilities
  • Understanding the roofing process
  • Warranties
  • Care and maintenance
  • Metal roofing project DIY checklist

The guide reinforces the importance of paying attention to attributes that go into a quality metal roofing job to help homeowners guard against inferior material from unknown sources that some unscrupulous installers try to pass off at a discount. As a nonprofit organization, the Metal Roofing Alliance helps homeowners find quality installers by working with member metal roofing manufacturers, who vet contractors before they are qualified to become MRA members. MRA members advocate for quality metal roofing standards, designed to meet industry specs and codes to help ensure maximum protection, longevity and homeowner satisfaction.
