Stone Coated Steel vs. Ice and Snow

RoofKO's New Metal Roofing on a New Montana Home

We have just had the pleasure of a flawless RoofKO metal roofing installation on a beautiful new Montana home build. 

The size of the roof was 48 squares, with an additional waste factor of 8%. It was a steep 7:12 slope roof with lots of valleys and hips. The RoofKO extra wide split valley material was the easiest valley we have ever installed, and the 300 feet of ridge caps add protection and premium accent on all the hips and ridges.

This job offered plenty opportunities to test the new RoofKO J-clip and  Z-bar and wall flashing all of which performed flawlessly.

California's Solar Calls for Stone Coated Metal

In two years all new homes in California will be required to be powered by solar panels.  

The California Energy Commission, have predicted monthly savings of $80 on cooling and lighting bills.  These saving will quickly pay off the price of solar installation.  This is a big step for home owners, but what if your roof underneath the solar panels strips you of those savings?

Additionally when you choose asphalt roofing, you will be unknowingly contributing to the countries annual estimated seven to ten million tons of toxic roofing waste most of which ends up in our landfills. To the contrary, metal roofing is 100% recyclable.
