A Metal Roof Is the Best Financial Choice

When installing a new roof on your home, consider that Metal is the best financial choice.
Why is this?

  1. Metal isn’t as expensive as you might think. In recent years there has been advancement in metal and paint manufacturing to bring down the price of metal roofs. Also, while standing seam metal is expensive, the most popular roofing panel in the country does not cost much more than shingles.
  2. Metal Roofs last a long, long time. While the average shingle roof lasts around 20 years, Metal roofs last around 50. Wagler Steel Corrugated Metal now comes with a 40 year Valspar Warranty.
  3. Energy Savings. While black Asphalt roofs soak in heat, Metal roofs reflect most of the sun’s rays. This allows your home to stay cooler in the summer.
  4. Tax Credits. Federal Tax Credits are 10% of the roof cost while State and Local Credits may also be available.
  5. Insurance savings. You can save up to 30% on your homeowners insurance with a new metal roof. Contact your insurer to see what discounts they offer.

Stream Lined Metal Production

At Wagler Steel in Paradise, PA we are all about stream lined metal production. 10 minutes after an order is placed in the office it can be picked up in the shop. Steve, our roll former operator has even been known to roll metal out of the machine directly onto a customer’s truck or trailer.

Our metal is stored in coils, not on stacks of 10, 12, and 14′ sheets on racks throughout the shop. This insures that all your metal will have nice factory cuts, it hasn’t been sitting on racks collecting dust for weeks, doesn’t get scratched from being moved and restacked multiple times, and it is made specifically for each individual job.

Coil Storage - Our Metal is stored in Coil form, not in stacks of sheets.

Builders and home owners have found that Wagler Steel is one of the best places in Pennsylvania to buy metal roofing and siding. The metal sold here has high quality Valspar paint with a 40 year warranty. The cost is also hard to beat because Wagler Steel is selling Factory Direct and because it is a smaller family owned business.

Kendig’s Car Wash

Kendig’s Car Wash recently opened in Lancaster, PA. Chris Kendig and his wife, Karen, purchased a car wash that had fallen into disrepair. After quite a bit of renovation and installation of new equipment they opened and now offer a full washing and detailing service.

For the most recent part of the renovation, a facelift was needed for the back of the building, where cars drive into the wash. It was covered with old plywood, that needed painting. The Kendigs decided to cover that with white metal siding from Wagler Steel.

After new Metal Siding

The new metal siding looks great and will not need to be repainted for many years. The Kendigs were happy with their choice to use metal from Wagler Steel and we were happy to give their building a face lift.

Efficiency, Recyclability, and Sustainability

Two of the most popular roofing material options are metal panels and asphalt shingles.

One way metal roofing stands out above asphalt shingles, is it is better for the environment. Metal is both energy efficient, sustainable, and 100% recyclable at the end of its lifetime (Cool Metal Roofing Coalition). While the price tag on a metal roof may be higher than that of asphalt shingles, metal roofs are durable and require little upkeep. Asphalt roofs need to be replaced after 15 or 25 years, but metal roofs are fire-resistant and weather-resistant, and can remain from 40 years to a lifetime!

Meanwhile, asphalt shingles cannot be re-used or recycled. Since incinerating these shingles releases harmful gas emissions, shingles are rarely burned. So what happens to all the unwanted shingles from house re-roofing projects? In the United States alone, eleven million tons of shingles per year are added to landfills, where they will stay for another 300 years (The National Association of Home Builders). To put new asphalt shingles down, the existing ones must be removed, but metal panels can be installed directly over existing roofing.

Most metal roofing is also coated with “cool coatings” that reflect sunlight and reduce the need for air conditioning, saving the consumer more money.
