What are the advantages of tile panels over conventional roofing products?

Asphalt shingles, though reasonably priced, don't deliver the best in looks or performance.Wood shakes, though attractive, don't have the fire resistance sought by homeowners and mandated by many local codes.Clays, though beautiful, are heavy and difficult to install, sometimes leading to breakage and safety problems.

At DML USA Metal Roofing, we give you the best: the look of tile, plus the light weight and high performance of engineered metal roofing.

Naturally, this gives architects and engineersa sense of relief in that they can use the best material to meet those criteria. In locations that see heavy snow, metal roofing has been the choice of homeowners for years.It sheds snow fast, which protects the structural integrity of the roof. And it can eliminate ice dammingat the eves, so water can't back up and collect under the roof then leak into your home.

Will a metal roof make my house hot?

As reported by the Cool Metal Roofing Coalition and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, installation of reflective metal roofing can save your home up to 40% in summer cooling energy costs while highly emissive metal roofs can reduce urban air temperatures by as much as 12°F.Combined, these benefits mean less money out of your wallet, less dependence on energy resources and less general air pollution in your neighborhood and across the nation.For homes in warmer climates, pre-painted or granular coated metal roofing systems not only reflect solar energy but also cool your home by re-emitting most of what solar radiation is absorbed.Where annual cooling loads dominate, a highly reflective and highly emissive painted or granular-coated metal roof is optimal for reducing energy consumption and can actually re-emit up to 90% of absorbed solar radiation.

We will have the details on how to walk the particular roof you have, based on the style you choose and your roof pitch.

Is a metal roof environmentally responsible?

Not only is DML USA Metal Roof great for your home, it's great for the environment. The recycled content of the steel in a metal roof is about 95% from production to installation to reuse far superior to asphalt.

According to the National Association of Homebuilders Research Center, 20 billion pounds of asphalt shingles are dumped into U.S. landfills every year. If you loaded those shingles into tractor trailers, then lined them up end-to-end, they would make a line from New York City to Los Angeles, back to New York City again, then on to Chicago. That's a lot of wasted asphalt. But because a metal roof can often be installed over your current roof, without tearing off what's already there, metal roofing helps to reduce this excessive shingle waste.

Do I like my new roof??? Oh yes, I do love it for many reasons. The most important: 1. the look. It looks super good on my newly remodeled house. It looks like a million-dollar house now. 2. with the winter we have here snow doesn't stay on it. As soon as the sun comes out, snow melts up a bit and it slides all the way down. I don't have to worry about shoveling it anymore. Considering the price, I paid for it, it was definitely worth investing.

I am writing this Thank You letter with great appreciation of the wonderful work DML USA performed on installing the architectural metal roof on our home.

Your company was highly recommended by a friend of ours and I am glad we chose your company and your product. At first we were reluctant because we're used to shingled roofs and are not accustomed to metal roofs but now I and my husband are extremely happy with this decision.

Our main concern was noise, after experiencing some heavy storms we practically heard no sound. Now we are upset that we waited so long with making our decision.

Thank you again especially for being so patient with us. We were also very pleased with the professional workmanship and the cleanliness of the area upon completion.

I want to thank all of you at DML USA. I am extremely pleased with my new steel roof.

The whole experience was great...the price was right, and everyone involved was a pleasure to deal with. The installers did a wonderful job and and kept the job site organized and clean. The roof looks high-end without the boring, dull look of asphalt shingles. I couldn't be happier with the results.

Thank you again for your excellent work. It was a pleasure working with all of you.

After many years of staring at my house and saying, "I have to get this taken care of!" I finally broke down and gave my house a new roof. I called three companies and was amazed at the difference in prices. I even went through them all to make sure that I was comparing apples to apples. In the end, I chose DML USA. Fantastic team of people, who provide a exceptional service and product!
