Metal roofs give long-lasting protection, are attractive, and can save you money. Engineered tough to resist harsh climates and continue looking beautiful, Central States® Horizon-Loc™ standing seam metal roofing can handle anything mother nature throws at it. Best of all, it’s available in a variety of colors.
Driving rain, blowing snow, and harsh sun are no match for the ultimate protection of a metal roof. A quality metal roof on your home is practically impervious to the forces of nature. A metal roof is permanent and lasts two to three times longer than traditional shingles.
Metal roofing is quickly becoming popular in neighborhoods across America. Not only do metal roofs look great, but they protect your home better than shingles, and are a permanent roofing solution.
As with any sound investment, the initial cost of buying a metal roof is higher than using asphalt shingles. However, a superior metal roof can increase the resale value of your home up to 6% versus homes with asphalt shingles according to Remodeling Magazine.
Common Misconceptions About Metal
Isn't it Loud?
This is the single biggest misconception about metal roofing. Most people picture an old porch with a rocking chair and a loud rainstorm. In reality, a metal roof is installed with solid sheathing and underlayment, causing it to insulate noise much better than other roofing materials.
Does lightning strike it often?
Having a metal roof does not increase the likelihood of a lightning strike on your house. If your house does get struck by lightning, a metal roof would do a better job spreading out the energy to protect your home.
Does lightning strike it often?
Most people think that “metal is metal.” But, there is a wide variety of paint type and thickness, rust-blocking coatings, and steel hardness and thickness that protects your home from fading, rusting and denting. Never consider a roof based solely on price.

Working with Craftsmen was a Dream
“Working with Craftsmen for our re-roofing/gutter installation project was a dream. We had previously received a quote from another contractor for twice the amount we received from Craftsmen, and the service level received from Craftsmen was beyond our highest expectations. From our first interactions with the team, we knew we made the right choice. The timelines received in the planning stages were accurate, however, if something needed to be pushed back a couple of weeks for whatever reason, we were the first to know. Our project was completed with the utmost quality and service we’ve ever received from any other person we’ve had work on our house.”
BBB Review (9/25/2018)
“I put my house up for sale and then the hail storm came. Our entire neighborhood needed new roofs. Friends of mine recommended Craftsmen. I was immediately impressed with the customer service on the phone. Then the crew came. Again- very impressed by the personable and professional team. I felt like I was getting preferential treatment but I began to realize this was standard procedure for this team. The lifetime transferable warranty from a company that has been around for 20+ years helped me make the decision to sign but the service made me want to refer. Sadly- it is rare for companies like this to invest so much in customer service, but so refreshing when you find it! Please support this company!”

“I chose Craftsmen Home Improvements because I was impressed with their professionalism and experience when they came to give an estimate. It was the right choice. They helped me navigate a tricky insurance situation, and were always quick to communicate. It is rare to get this level of customer service in the home improvement industry. I felt the roof replacement was priced fairly and am happy with my new roof. The crew was very fast and took care to move my grill and yard furniture to a safe place and put them all back when they were finished, they also left no mess behind.”
