PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Interest in metal roofing is skyrocketing in the U.S., and homeowners now have a powerful new resource designed to help meet the demand right at their fingertips.
The Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA), a leading nonprofit organization working to educate consumers about the benefits of metal roofing, has launched a revamped, mobile-friendly website where homeowners can learn more about metal roofs, compare how they stand up against other roofing options, and find qualified local resources and installers.
"Whether it's due to the outstanding longevity and durability in severe climate conditions, or homeowners are realizing the huge variety of design and style options that are available, the demand for metal roofing is literally through the roof," said Renee Ramey, executive director of MRA. "Our goal is to be the leading resource for homeowners to get solid information and find the installation assistance they need."
Interactive features of the site include a metal roof visualizer that allows homeowners to "try on" different styles and colors of metal roofs to see how they might look by uploading their own home photos. A robust image gallery showcases the many style options available and provides convenient search filters for different metal roofing materials, colors and designs.
The online search to find a local contractor also has been streamlined, giving homeowners quick access to reputable metal roofing installers and the ability to review a portfolio of their experience and work. A handy roofing material comparison tool provides homeowners with detailed information for how an investment in a metal roof stacks up against other options on the market. The new site is at www.metalroofing.com.
"Metal has grown to 14 percent of the overall U.S. roofing market just in the last few years," said Ramey. "We don't anticipate that slowing down anytime soon, so we want to be sure that homeowners have the resources available to make informed decisions and a wise investment."
