Residential METAL Roof Replacement Service

Metal roofing is more durable than most other roofing systems available. Due to this, metal roofing has low life cycle costs and will last a very long time on your home.


Metal roofing is known to provide great energy savings compared to other non-metal roofing products. It also comes in a variety of designs, finishes, and colors.


Metal roofing is VERY fire resistant. On top of this, metal roof systems can also be designed to withstand extremely strong winds (which comes in handy when living in the Midwest)

You may or may not realize that metal roofs are everywhere. You probably wouldn’t think to typically see one on a home, but due to their longevity, durability to withstand the elements, and MINIMAL upkeep level and strength- it is an option to consider as a homeowner.
Due to the lower cost in the long-term perspective, it is important to find out if a metal roof is the right choice for you, your home, and your budget. A typical asphalt shingle roof lasts between 15-20 years while one metal roof can easily outlast at least three asphalt shingle roofs.
There are a large variety of metal roof types to choose from. If you don’t know where to start and want to look at which type of metal roof is best for your home, Promar Exteriors can help.

Super good experience with Promar Exteriors. Their guys are wonderfully nice. They worked in the heat with no complaints. They installed new metal roof and James Hardie siding on my house. I definitely got what I paid for. The work was done very well and looks great. Wonderful to work with and a fair price.
