American Made Roofing

We believe in America and will use only American sourced materials for your roof. More than that, we believe that “American Made” should mean something and that’s how we go about installing your new roof. Our owner is on every job to guarantee your satisfaction with our work and we make sure the job site is spotless when we leave.


If for some reason you (or your spouse) still prefer to have an asphalt roof installed, at American Metal Roofing & Shingle, we would still love to earn your business. Our installation teams have more experience with all types of roofing. Whatever type of roof you choose, you can be sure that you will get the best installation from American Metal Roofing & Shingle!

Benefits Of An Energy Efficient Metal Roof

Projects by the Cool Metal Roofing Coalition and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory show that the installation of metal roofing can save you up to 40% in summer cooling energy costs and can reduce attic 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.


The secret to metal roofing’s energy savings is in its variety of finishes. As shown here, the basic, unpainted metal roof will reflect much of the solar radiation usually absorbed into your attic and home by an asphalt roof. But, 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. What this means for you-our metal roof is optimal for reducing energy consumption and can actually re-emit up to 90% of the heat absorbed from solar radiation!
