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.

I would hire them for everything!
“Craftsmen Home Improvements just finished replacing the roof on my house and on my garage. Things could not have gone better. My house and garage look great. CHI’s communication and professionalism are excellent. Erik and Nic were patient and willing to answer all my questions. They regularly checked in with me during the process. We were trying to solve an unusual problem while doing the roofing and Jim came out also. I really felt like the whole company was working for me to make sure everything was perfect. The crew was great and the job site was thoroughly cleaned up. I lost a few hostas during the roofing process and Nic went above and beyond to ensure that they were replaced. CHI will be re-siding my house next year. I am confident that it will be a great experience. I wish that they did all construction trades. I would hire them for everything.”
Angie’s List Review (9/16/2018)
Exceeded my Expectations!
“Just thought that I would share my experience with Craftsmen Home Improvements this past fall season. I ordered a new GAF architectural shingle roof, new soffits and fascia, and new gutters. The whole process was handled seamlessly, and professionally. I was especially impressed with the roof work, as my estimator Jim spent the day up on the roof working along with the roofing crew. The new roof met and exceeded my expectations. During and after the job clean up was conducted around my house three times, taking care of any stray materials, nails, and shingles. The same for the soffits and fascia, and my new gutters. Cleanup was done very well, and the finished product turned out great!”

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.”
