Here is what is inside:

DECRA Roofing Systems
DECRA stone-coated steel metal roofs have a 50-year limited warranty, a 120-mph wind warranty and Class 4 impact resistance. Decra roofing has six profiles, including three with hidden fasteners, and DECRA metal shingles are available in a variety of uniquely blended colors. Villa Tile, Shake XD and Shingle utilize DECRA’s “Cut & Tuck” Technology. DECRA Roofing Shingles are aesthetically pleasing, require minimum maintenance, and offer long-lasting protection from the harsh weather elements a roof is exposed to. Decra shingles can be used for residential or light commercial, institutional, or industrial projects.

TAMKO Building Products
MetalWorks® StoneCrest® Slate steel shingles create a dramatic look that closely replicates the random finish of natural slate. Tamko steel shingles are made with a heavy-gauge steel and are double stamped for stunning beauty and durability. Combining aesthetics and performance, Tamko shingles are an ideal choice for residential and commercial buildings. The steel slate shingles from Tanko are designed with a four-way locking system. Metal shingles can be applied right over existing asphalt shingles. MetalWorks steel shingles are backed by a 50-year limited warranty and all colors and profiles are Energy Star-qualified products.

Metro Roof Products
Metro lightweight tile - Metro produces lightweight (1.5 pounds per square foot) stone-coated Galvalume Plus steel roof systems. Metro roofing offers four profiles, providing the right look for any architectural style. Metro Shingles deliver the look of asphalt laminate shingles, while Tile, Roman and Shake create a traditional clay tile or hand-split wood cedar shake impression or texture without the weight load and fire risk. Metro roof products are backed by a 50-year limited warranty covering 120-mph winds, Class 4 hail resistance and a 25-year limited appearance warranty. All are available from traditional wholesale roofing and siding distributors across the market area served.

Roser Roofing Systems
Roser’s stone-coated steel roofs are a world-famous, unbelievably lightweight metal roofing system. Roser’s metal roof systems are designed and manufactured to withstand all kinds of severe weather such as extremely hot and cold weather, strong wind and heavy rain. The core strength is Galvalume, which has long-term corrosion resistance. On both sides of this core strength, additional coating systems are applied to the Roser roof tiles for enhanced durability. The stone chips are then embedded to provide even more strength and beauty.

Met-Tile Roofing
Met-Tile is a panelized steel roofing system, which means installation takes a fraction of the time required for ceramic tiles. In fact, a single Met-Tile panel can cover as much area as 80 individual ceramic tiles. Met-Tile roofing panels feature a Galvalume steel substrate and a low gloss Kynar 500 coating system. This combination of substrate and coating is proven to provide the best long-term performance for metal roof panels.

Edco Roofing Products
In 2011, Edco roofing added to its existing roofing line with the introduction of its Generations Roofing Collection. The Generations Roofing Collection adds a more rustic looking metal panel to Edco’s current offering and gives the home-owner another option for roofing projects. Generations shake panels are coated with a deluxe PVDF coating system and come in nine attractive colors inspired by nature. Edco backs the Generations Roofing Collection with an unsurpassed warranty.

Umicore/VM Zinc
Umicore Building Products’ diamond-shaped shingle product, VMZ ADEKA panel, is available in QUARTZ-ZINC® and ANTHRA-ZINC®. The ADEKA® panels offer a simple, yet elegant roofing solution characterized by a diamond shingle with significant relief that makes it perfect for new and renovation projects. Umicore Building Products ADEKA Panel Systems in VMZINC® offers an interesting alternative to more traditional roofing techniques and can be used for either roofs (as long as the slope is 4:12 (33%) or more) and facades. ADEKA elements are weather resistant thanks to the 2” (5 cm) overlap, raised edges at the top, and dropped edges on the bottom, and a polystyrene wedge bonded to the underside of the ADEKA. The simplicity of the system allows for easy installation. Because there is little manual manipulation of the panels in the field, ADEKA panels may be installed in cold weather without fracture.
