5 Roofing Companies Protecting Homes and Businesses From The Elements

A building needs walls to stand, but it's not complete until it has a roof. More than mere structural elements, roofs provide residential and commercial properties with warmth, security, and protection from the vagaries of the outdoors. From PVC to metal and even vegetation, all sorts of materials are implemented to keep people safe inside. In no particular order, here are some companies specializing in durable and stylish roofing solutions.

At #1 is Classic Metal Roofing Systems, a faith-based company located in Piqua, Ohio. Since the 1980s, it has produced 100% American-made metal shingles, innovating energy-efficient roofing solutions with the latest technologies. Classic uses up to 99% recycled aluminum to protect homes, churches, and other buildings in the US and around the world.

The company manufactures metal roofing in a number of styles, all employing sustainable, lifetime metal. Options include Country Manor Shake and Rustic Shingle, which provide the charm of wood shake roofing without the problems of ongoing maintenance and eventual tear-off and replacement. Other styles evoke the looks of clay tile, slate, and Standing Seam.

For #2 we get Choice Roof Contractor Group. This nationwide collective is made up of professional contractors who provide commercial roofing services via their independently owned companies. Members have the equipment and expertise to tackle any manner of project, including installation, restoration, coating, and repair on industrial, agricultural, and commercial buildings.
