The Metal Roof

Posted by Flashings Direct on

35year.pngMetal roofing it is the next big thing in roofing. It is durable, looks awesome, and what sounds better than a thunderstorm on a corrugated metal roof? It almost makes you want to crack open a frosty beverage and pull out the banjo. Of course the material that is installed as metal roofing is nothing like the old, wavy corrugated metal of fifty years ago.

35 Year Metal Roof Pipe Flashings

If you are a professional installer, you probably love metal roofing if only for the fact that it can be installed much faster with an experienced crew. The challenge lies in the unique installation of the pipe boots and flashing. A metal roof, as opposed to asphalt shingles, is much more durable, meaning you need pipe boots that will last. At Flashings Direct, we are are proud to carry the Master Flash® pipe boots designed to fit seamlessly on a metal roof. Oh, and they are designed to last for 35 years. Think of it this way, if you were to install one of our 35 year metal roof pipe flashings, by the time you would need to replace it, Kanye will be 75 years old.

Flashings Direct, Filet Mignon in a Hot Dog World

At one point or another, we have all done it. The convenience store hot dog for lunch. They just look so good rotating over there on their little chrome bleachers, sweating like a politician at confession.

Happy Thanksgiving from Flashings Direct!

One week from today is Thanksgiving and that means many things in this great country of ours, turkey, stuffing and a mush of green beans and soup.
