Even though members of the industry know that today’s residential metal roofing is an eco-friendly, durable choice that can fit into any neighborhood, consumers sometimes face opposition when they choose a metal roof for their home. Outdated homeowners’ association or architectural review committee guidelines prohibit (or do not specifically allow) metal roofs. In addition, some zoning boards have rules in place to restrict or limit metal roofing.
Once educated about the benefits of Investment Grade Roofing, most governing boards see the error of their ways and make changes to welcome metal roofing. For example, a homeowner who wanted to install a metal roof in Clarkson Valley, MO was able (along with some help from the MRA) to defeat a measure that would have required a special permit to install a metal roof.
As another benefit for our members, the MRA public relations team has developed a brand new Homeowners’ Association presentation to help address this issue. Presented in a consumer-friendly format, the content includes an overview of the benefits of residential metal roofing and dispels common myths about the products. The presentation also includes over 40 photos of metal roofing in a wide variety of styles to reinforce the beauty and quality of Investment Grade Roofing.
“We hear about these outdated policies and zoning restrictions from time to time, and have assisted many communities and individuals to defeat or alter potential restrictions,” said Bill Hippard, Executive Director of the Metal Roofing Alliance. “By providing this new benefit to MRA members, our manufacturers and contractors will have a professional presentation ready to go anytime this issue arises.”
Available in both PowerPoint® and Google Slides® formats, the presentation can be easily customized to feature specific products and projects completed with quality MRA products. MRA members can download the new Homeowners’ Association presentation by logging in to their MRA dashboards.
