Let's face it, many things just aren't made the way they used to be... and asphalt shingles are no exception. What was once 70% asphalt and 30% filler is now 70% filler and 30% asphalt. It is a fact which anyone can see by simply looking at any asphalt manufacturer's MSDS sheets. Why have asphalt shingle companies "cheapened" up their roofing materials? Because asphalt can now be turned into fuel, and as we know, fuel is expensive. It is very simple, asphalt shingles now do not last a fraction of the time that those manufactured 20-‐30 years ago did. There are asphalt shingles being replaced each and every day that are from 8-‐12 years old. How frustrating... purchasing a product that protects your home from the elements only to find out that it lasts you a mere 8-‐12 years. In order to promote their poor quality materials, asphalt manufacturers have hired attorneys to compose grand "warranties" claiming 20, 30, 50, even lifetime guarantees. Most individuals do not take the time to actually read these warranties. In fact, it takes a legal professional to actually interpret most sections of these warranties. When it comes right down to it, asphalt shingles are guaranteed to fail and their warranties contain a number of loopholes that leave homeowners with little to no recourse when their roof does, in fact, fail.
The good news...
You do not have to continually spend your hard-‐earned money on products that are guaranteed to fail. Investment grade metal roofing gives homeowners the opportunity to purchase the last roof their home will ever need. Satern Exteriors offers permanent metal roofing in shingle, shake, slate and tile profiles in both prefinished as well as stone coated steel. The proven performance makes metal roofing the most logical investment option available to homeowners today. In addition to performance, investment
grade roofing offers unsurpassed beauty, durability, increased resale value and insurance benefits. When you offer products that have proven themselves for some 50+ years, it is easy to offer warranty coverage to match. Gerard Roofing Technologies offers a simple, straightforward, one page warranty that is clear for everyone to understand. Your new Gerard roofing system is covered 100%, non pro-‐rated, for both materials and labor for as long as you own your home. If you ever sell your home, the coverage automatically transfers to the subsequent owner and the coverage then becomes 50 years. In addition to the manufacturer's warranty, Satern Exteriors offers a twenty (20) year Workmanship warranty. That's correct, we are so confident in our factory trained roofing technicians that we are willing to guarantee their Workmanship for twenty years. If any of this sounds too good to be true, we encourage all of our potential clients to speak with the hundreds of individuals we have served that are already enjoying their permanent metal roof.
