Take a short course on the many benefits of an Armor Shield Roof System:
An Investment Above the Rest
The money a homeowner can save with a Stone Coated Metal Roof is significant because an Armor Shield Roof System will be the last roof you ever buy! A Stone Coated Metal Roof System adds to your home’s beauty and to its resale value. The initial investment of installing an Armor Shield Roof System may be more than just replacing an existing asphalt roof, however, insurance companies in many states will lower your homeowner’s insurance premiums 5-30% due to the proven protection of an Armor Shield Roof System!
“Good for a Lifetime” vs. “Sooner or Later”
The average life of a non-metal roof is 9 years. For example, asphalt, or “composition” shingles can require re-roofing every 7-11 years or maybe even sooner! Compare that with an Armor Shield Stone Coated Metal Roof System that includes a Lifetime Warranty and the better choice is clear.
Give Your Home A Beauty Makeover
Whatever the style, color or finish of your current roof, there is most likely an Armor Shield Metal Roof System that will match the look and appearance of your home. Whether you want the look of an asphalt shingle, clay tile, cedar shake, slate or a contemporary smooth metal roof you can select an Armor Shield Metal Roof System to enhance the beauty of your home for a lifetime.
Strength for the Long Run
Life is hard. Mother Nature is even harder, especially on non-steel roofing materials which begin to deteriorate immediately after they are installed. From exposure to damaging ultraviolet rays of the sun, expansion and contraction as a result of temperature changes, and the effect of hailstones, heavy snow, ice and wind an Armor Shield Metal Roof System can take extreme weather conditions and still look and protect like new for a lifetime!
There’s more to the beautiful colors and designs of an Armor Shield Metal Roof System than meets the eye. For example, the lighter-colored roofs are designed to effectively reflect the sun’s heat and reduce the need to cool your home during the hot summer months, some colors are approved Green and tax credits are available for 2012. Our buffer zone between your new roof system and old roof also insulates against heat loss in winter months. What a beautiful way to lower your energy bills!
Putting Our Warranty Where Our Mouth Is
You don’t need to take anyone’s word for how long an Armor Shield Metal Roof System will last. Our roofs come with the best warranty in the industry! Impressive NON PRO RATED LIFETIME WARRANTIES including a 120 m.p.h. Wind Warranty and 2.5 inch Hailstone Warranty... Investing in protection makes financial sense with a Stone Coated Metal Roof from Armor Shield.
Is Lightning Attracted to a Metal Roof?
There is absolutely no increase in the likelihood of your home being struck by lightning if you have a metal roof. In fact, if lightning does strike your Roof System, the energy safely dissipates throughout the entire roof surface, and can exit into the ground. Also, because metal roofing is NOT combustible or flammable, it is an even smarter choice when severe weather is a possibility or when living in areas prone to fire danger.
Is an Armor Shield Roof System a Noisy Roof?
Absolutely not! Now hear this: An Armor Shield Metal Roof System is often much quieter than just an asphalt shingle roof because of our unique installation method that can create a sound and temperature “buffer zone” of air space. Combine this with our beautifully functional surfaces, even a torrential rain striking the roof panels is no louder than it would be on a heavy wood shake roof.
Is Rust a Problem with an Armor Shield Roof System?
No! In fact, our Metal Roof panels are made from high quality 26gauge, pre-primed, Galvalume steel that is coated with an acrylic basecoat. The combination of the Galvalume steel which is an alloy of steel and aluminum with zinc forms a durable panel that will reseal itself if cut or damaged, not allowing it to form rust on the surface. Ceramic earth-stone granules are then embedded over this panel in a basecoat of epoxy resin. Finally, a clear acrylic over-glaze is applied and baked on. For painted metal roofs the process is similar but incorporates a polymer paint instead of granules. This provides your home with a long-lasting, durable and fade-resistant protection for a lifetime of enjoyment. The roof will remain looking the same year 50 as it does the day it was installed.
Is Hail Damage a Problem?
Again, no! In fact, Armor Shield Metal Roof Systems can and do stand up to hailstones, snow loads and extreme wind conditions. That’s one reason our weatherproof warranties include a 120mph Wind Warranty (equal to an F2 tornado!) and 2.5 inch Hailstone Warranty.
Standing Up for Durability
If you’ve heard anyone say that a metal roof shouldn’t be walked on, they’re obviously not talking about an Armor Shield Metal Roof System! Our unique interlocking panel design, rugged 26-gauge Galvalume steel construction, and proven installation methods provide a strong roof system that can be walked on under normal conditions - often times it is easier to walk on than most other roofs because the granules will not come off under your feet like they do on an asphalt roof!
Health Benefits of an Armor Shield Roof System
Have you ever wondered what that dark color is on the underside of your roof sheeting or why your home gets that musty smell when you are gone for a few days? Or even worse why you have so many colds and allergies certain times of the year?
The answer could be improper ventilation of your roof which can cause mold, mildew and premature failure of your roof covering. Our Stone Coated Metal Roof Systems will expel unwanted moisture from your attic space and reduce the extreme temperature swings that occur. We have helped many people feel better and breathe better by eliminating the reasons mold can grow.
Estimating Your Enjoyment
When you compare the features and benefits of an Armor Shield Metal Roof System against all others, you’ll see there really is no comparison. So how do you determine what your investment amount will be? You can schedule a free in home consultation where we will calculate the cost of your new Armor Shield Metal Roof System. Unlike other roofing material, our stone coated metal panels do not go by square footage becuase it depends on the style you choose, your roof’s shape and “pitch” or degree of slope, and whether or not you would like your existing roof left on or torn off. All roofs are not created equal and Armor Shield offers many styles made from various materials. Estimating a cost without seeing the roof first would be virtually impossible, and we would be doing you a disservice by guessing. We want you to have the best roof at the best price!
