Here are the steps for calculating the materials for your new metal roof.
We are proud to announce our latest venture with Edco Exterior Solutions. In order to bring a larger variety of high-quality and durable metal roofing options to our clientele, we will now be providing an array of products from Edco, including the Edco Arrowline® range of steel roofing and siding.
As if smart homeowners didn’t need another reason to install a metal roof, they now have one more. Many homeowners now qualify for $500 tax credit.
Even without the tax credit, people have been rapidly discovering the advantages of metal roofing. While asphalt shingles need to be replaced every 20 years or so, if you are lucky enough to have them last that long, metal roofing will last a lifetime. Metal roofing has seen a dramatic rise in popularity over the past decade; it’s now the second most popular re-roofing product in the United States.
By adding a new store location, we aim to expand and cater to a bigger clientele than before. We believe that by opening a new location in Plymouth, we will be easily accessible by a larger number of customers.
Great news for the hard working men and women of southeast Michigan. We will soon be expanding to a new, second location in Plymouth, Michigan to meet the growing demand for metal roofing materials.
The new location will be approximately 70 miles south of our current location in Burton, Michigan.
You may be wondering what any of this has to do with roofing or even home improvement, in general. When you think about it, the first quote also applies to various adhesives. When you glue one surface to another, the bond is only as strong as the glue. And not all glues are the same.
We are proud and excited to announce that Mid Michigan Metal Sales has formed a distribution relationship with Gentek Building Products. We are now able to offer Gentek Steeltek Steel Siding to our customers.
Gentek Steeltek Supreme Steel Siding is the perfect combination of beauty and functionality and its visible opulence coupled with the extremely superior quality that it boasts of is ideal for both residential and commercial purposes.
Or if you have to sidestep the pans and buckets on your floor whenever it rains, you might want to consider doing some roof fixup.
We are quickly approaching the time of year when sleep becomes a much sought-after luxury. The weeks leading to Independence Day and for several days afterward, the booming and banging of fireworks keeps many people awake and many pets scurrying for cover.
This is the time of year that we, as Americans, celebrate our independence by lighting up the sky and, unfortunately for many, our homes, garages, and any other structure in their path. Fireworks can be fun, but they can also be deadly if not handled properly. On average, 240 people go to the emergence room around this time of year with fireworks related injuries.
Mid Michigan Metal Sales made an announcement that introduced sheet metals and home sidings in a small press meeting here today. We are now offering two types of sheet metal sidings, the Hardy Rib and the TruLog™ sidings. Hardy Rib is a metal panel siding that provides strength to the wall through manufacturer acceptance testing and is suitable for residential or commercial property. TruLog™ siding is a unique metal log cabin siding that offers the visual charm of log cabin siding with the strength and durability of metal.

Installing metal shingles over a stripped or asphalt shingled roof can be a difficult task or project if you are not familiar with roofing. However, when it is completed you will have a beautiful roof that is maintenance free and will last a lifetime time.
Let’s discuss some of the finer points of this type of an installation.
1. Long lasting. Steel roofs are known for their longevity, sometimes lasting up to 50 years or longer when a quality installation is done. This is significantly better than standard asphalt shingles which at best last 15 or 20 years.
While shingles typically wear out and need to be replaced within 10-12 years, metal roofing can last up to 60 years or longer.
In this article I want to show you that installing a metal roof over shingles is possible when done correctly. When you install metal roofing over shingles, the roof will have a long lifespan that does not require more attention in the future.
While it’s nearly impossible to cover the entire installation process in one article, we will attempt to cover the basics. For a more detailed guide to metal roofing installation, check out our free downloadable PDF guides here.
It’s called The Slator. Since our company deals mostly with metal roofing, I haven’t yet figured out a way for us to use this, but if you install shingles or slate roofing, you might find this useful.
Finding the actual spot where the roof leaks are can be very difficult since the water can enter your roof in one place but run down to other places before it soaks into your ceiling. You are aware that your roof is bad whenever its shingles are damaged or missing or when there is the presence of water stains in your walls or ceilings. This is the reason why you need to find the time and effort to determine the most effective means of finding and fixing the actual leak.
There is no doubt that technology is changing how we live. Even Christmas and Santa Clause aren’t immune.
Horse-drawn sleighs have been replaced by snowmobiles and ATV’s. Instead of decorating a real Christmas tree, we now have artificial trees that come pre-lit with LED lights. Just put it together and plug it in.
Matt Power of Green Builder recently wrote a tongue-in-cheek letter to Santa that is too good to pass up.
Meanwhile, we at Mid Michigan Metal Sales wish a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to each and everyone.

It’s no surprise when discussing premium quality materials with people in the trades, that Amish communities have a reputation second to none for their hard work, and reasonable prices. Metal products are no different. Working with this knowledge, Mid Michigan Metal Sales, a local leader in providing metal roofing material, is very happy to announce their new partnership with Weaver Metal Products of Ohio, a company proudly based in Amish country and well known for their emphasis on quality. Mid Michigan Metal Sales will be making their products available at their store and beyond in the Michigan area.
Metal roofing companies, including Mid Michigan Metal Sales, have been touting the advantages of metal roofing for years. Claims include roofing that can last up to 60 years and beyond. But until now, little proof has been giving beyond the claims.
Now there is proof.
According to a study by the Metal Construction Association (MCA), certain metal roof systems can last up to 60 years, meaning they do not require replacement during the expected life of the commercial building.
