Classic Metal Roofing Systems

After specializing in metal roofing for almost two decades, we at Athens Roofing set out to find some new products to offer our clients to compliment our existing lines of vertical panel metal roofing. While these panels have offered our customers a great value and aesthetic over the years, the fact is that they don’t always look right on every type of home.

After surveying a variety of the products offered in metal shingle profiles a clear winner emerged: Classic Metal Roofing Systems. We could find no other product that offered the durability of aluminum, the beauty of the Rustic and Oxford Shingles, or the proven performance of products that has been manufactured for decades and backed by a company with the integrity of Classic Metal Roofing Systems.

If you are tired of replacing your roof every 15 years and want to have the most beautiful, long lasting roof available backed by a true lifetime warranty on both the product and the installation then please read below to learn more about our offerings from Classic Metal Roofing. Or, feel free to call or email (insert link here) today to get a free proposal on installing the last roof you’ll ever need.

Interlocking Protection

Ordinary roofing relies on overlapping and short-lived sealants for weather resistance. Classic Metal Roofing shingles, however, are a completely interlocked roofing system. Our shingles lock together on all sides to form a weather tight seal on your home for unbeatable wind resistance and protection. It has been approved by building codes in some of the toughest coastal areas, and tested to withstand 110 mph wind-driven rain as well as 90 Pounds per Square Foot uplift.

Metal Roofing Provides Fire Safety

Brush fires, fireworks, even sparks from a chimney pose a threat to many homes. While fire-resistant products like tile and slate won’t burn, their great weight means a huge risk of a roof collapse. In fact, firefighters are trained not to enter a burning building with a tile roof because of this added danger. Country Manor Shake, however, is crafted from fireproof, lightweight aluminum (just 50 lbs per 100 square feet). This superior combination of light weight and non-combustible metal means lasting protection for your home and family.

Kynar 500/Hylar 5000 Finish

The incredible Kynar 500/Hylar 5000 finish is specified by industry experts when they need the ultimate in lasting exterior building products. This finish is unmatched for resistance to the fading, peeling, curling, and cracking that plague other materials. More than an ordinary paint, this is a tight molecular bond that holds the color true and protected for decades. The Kynar 500/Hylar 5000 finish is one of the reasons that all of our Classic Metal Products are protected by such a strong warranty.

HI-R Heat Barrier Coating

All of our Classic Metal Roofing shingles are coated with HI-R heat reflective paint, which helps to create a cooler, more energy-efficient home due to the special reflective pigments embedded in the finish. Developed for military stealth technologies, the complex chemical structure of these pigments reflects away the infrared portion of the sun’s rays most responsible for heat buildup. So, while maintaining color consistency and fade protection, HI-R Heat Barrier Technology provides all the advantages of greater reflectance, without sacrificing color choices.

This HI-R coating, combined with the inherent energy efficiency of metal roofing, regularly saves homeowners 20-30% on their heating bills by keeping their attic cooler. Especially if your heating and cooling system is located in your attic, these roofs can offer substantial energy savings that you will realize for the many decades this roof is on your home.

Sustainability

Encouraging environmental responsibility has always been high on Athens Roofing’s priority list. With Classic Metal Roofing, you will be installing a roof with a serious Green pedigree. Along with the features mentioned above, the Classic aluminum products are all made from recycled metal stock. In many cases, the metal used to manufacture your new contains nearly 100% post consumer recycled material. That means no new material is mined to produce your roof. We diligently collect and recycle all of the scrap material generated by our jobs and of course, at the end of its life, your roof can be completely recycled.

The most Green element of all is the simple fact that you are investing in a lifetime roofing system that does not need to be torn off and replaced every 15 years. The long term benefits in energy efficiency, the sustainability of the material, and fact you will never again need to re-roof your home make Classic Metal Roofing one of the most Green roofs on the market.

Below, you will find descriptions and pictures of the two Classic Metal products that Athens Roofing has chosen to offer:
