Sliding Door Hardware

At Wagler Steel most of our time and energy is spent making quality metal and trim for contractors and home owners. Our goal is to manufacture quality metal to sell at affordable prices within 2 hours of the Lancaster, PA area.

When we opened a year ago we planned to sell only metal, trim, and a few accessories. Since then we have added additional products. We are now selling sliding door track and side rails in various lengths. We also sell rollers and other hardware. These products are made by MWI and are manufactured in the United States.

Now Stocking Sliding Door Hardware

We are also selling ceiling access doors for metal ceilings. If you use our economical panels for the interior of your building this access door is an easy way to get to the area above the ceiling.

Ceiling Access Doors Available 24×36 and 24×48

Other things we have recently added here at Wagler Steel in Paradise are: Trim nails in most colors, and caulk in all our colors.

Now Stocking Caulk in all our colors.

As we grow will continue to add products that go along with metal roofing and siding. If you think we should carry something let us know and we just might by the next time you call. Our primary goal remains to manufacture and sell quality roofing and siding in the Lancaster area.

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.

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.

The Classic Metal Panel

The Classic Ag Panel is 36″ wide with ribs every 9 inches

Metal Roofing is used on many different types of structures. Metal can be found on houses, barns, chicken coops, and sheds. The most popular panel used today is known by many names. It is called the Ag Panel, Classic Panel, Sturdi panel, or Tuff rib. This classic and tough panel has been used on roofs across America for generations.


Large companies like Fabral, Central States, and Metal Sales have been manufacturing this  panel for years. These companies sold metal throughout the United States via dealer networks. Customers would place orders and the metal would arrive several weeks later.

In recent years many smaller companies have gotten into the business. These smaller, regional metal formers are able to produce the same strong, attractive panels for less money and with a quicker turn around time. Often metal is available the same day or a day after it is ordered.

As the metal roofing market has tightened, customers have benefited. More metal formers means lower prices, better service, and more quality products. Companies have increased the number of colors they offer. Metal is available in up to twenty different colors ranging from White to Bright Red. A new product from Valspar, called textured paint, is also now available from many local roll formers.

Below are several different applications.

The Barn

The House

The Chicken Coop

The Garage

The Tiny House

The classic metal panel works great for these and many other uses.

Our First Open House

September 10 was Wagler Steel’s first Open House. The event also served as our Grand Opening. We were happy to welcome over 300 people from the local community. We served pork barbecue and homemade ice cream, gave away door prizes, and did multiple demonstrations on our brand new equipment. Vendors from Valspar, Mill Steel, and Levi’s Building Components were also in the office all day, offering their expert advice.

 

 

The Wagler family would like to thank everyone who came out and made this event a success!

Wagler Steel Celebrates Grand Opening In Paradise

Sep 10, 2016 – 9:00 am
Wagler Steel, 6 Township Drive (off Route 30), Paradise, will mark its grand opening on Saturday, Sept. 10, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Wagler family has been in the construction business for more than 30 years, focusing on the usage of steel panels on pole buildings, barns, and house roofs.

Recently, the Waglers decided to start roll forming the steel they have long installed. They noted that one reason for the change was the abundance of small roll forming operations in the Midwest compared to the local area, which has several large operations. Wagler Steel aims to be a smaller-type operation in central Lancaster County that offers the same quality as the large producers.

“We have competitive prices and service that cannot be beat,” said owner Steve Wagler. The business manufactures 28-gauge metal roofing and siding panels, soffit, and all trims and offers a selection of 20 colors and six textured colors, which are available for sale to contractors and retail customers.

The Wagler family invites the general public to drop in during the grand opening celebration on Sept. 10. The event will include metal forming demonstrations throughout the day, featuring the company’s new state-of-the-art equipment. Free pulled pork barbecue, beverages, and homemade ice cream will be available, and attendees are invited to register to win door prizes.

Wagler Steel business hours are 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays and 7 to 11 a.m. on Saturdays. The business can be reached at 288-2138, and additional information is available by visiting http://www.waglersteel.com.
