We are just rolling out a new Shingle product that is taking the market by a storm of desire and need. We also install America’s most efficient Ventilation system called Therma Vent. We were instrumental in the testing of this product and now offer a full line of our Platinum metal roofing installations that will save you money on your cooling cost in the summer. One customer reported savings of $100 a month during the summer on his electric bill.
We are rolling out a new metal roofing product that is taking the market by storm. This is the “Nex Gen Metal Shingle” that cost the same as Asphalt Shingles. It is the same cost to buy and about the same or a little more in labor to install. The installation goes on fast while not leaving the quality of the normal metal roofing behind. The Warranty on the Paint is 30-35 years depending on the style chosen while the metal itself will outlast the old tin roofs that are lasting over 100 years. This product comes in over a dozen colors and even has a textured paint options that looks crisp and sleek. For years customers have asked us if we offered any metal roofing products that were more affordable, and now we do. We Also offer our the classic Standing Seam Metal Roof which has been up to this point the most popular choice, we offer a number of other styles that come in stone coated metal shingle to look like an Asphalt shingles, Cedar, Tile, Barrel Tile and even Slate. We offer the costly but classy Copper Standing Seam Roof, and Cooper Shingle roof, along with the Victorian Stamped Metal Shingle which is very popular for the turn of the early 1900s.
The Value we offer is in our products and installation. We know what any roofing company can offer a product and sell it for the same price as us, but we offer the knowledge of only installing Metal Roofs over 1,000 plus metal roofs and counting. We exclusively have been installing metal roofs for over 15 years now which is not something that many other companies in Virginia can say. We strive to be competitive on price but also know that quality does not come without proper compensation.
We have been installing quality metal roofs for a decade and a half and have done so with some of the same crew members that we started 15 years ago. We have a crew that is next to none in the metal roofing industry; we offer and install custom flashing like our W valley which is something only we Alpha Rain install in the entire county. We are decades ahead of the curve and are always looking for new ways to create new flashings details that has and will add value and quality to “you” our customers metal roof’s longevity. The metal material on every metal roof in America will last the same amount of time given the same material, but the quality and care of installation will determine if your flashing and detail will last as long as the material of your metal roof without leaks and deterioration. We install our metal roofs like they did in the 19 Century with new technology and materials of the 21st Century that will last on some estimate over 200 years.
We offer 3 levels of metal roofing and 3 levels of Installation. These 3 levels are the Standard, Advanced, and Platinum. I have them listed out below in detail for each of the types and styles of Installation. You choose first the metal roof level, then any of the 3 installation levels.
Metal Roofing Levels
Standard Metal Roof
Our newly released Standard Metal roof is called Nex Gen Metal Shingle. This is an innovative designed shingle that replaces the current Composite Asphalt Shingle with a prepainted metal shingle, which has a starting 30 year no fade or peeling warranty, we also offer a textured paint that gives a classic definition to the already elegant metal roof. The Nex Gen Metal Shingle comes in over a dozen color which are all energy star colors. The Standard is offered near or a little more than the price of an average installed asphalt shingle roof.
Advanced Metal Roof
Our Advanced option is our must popular classic metal roof coming in Standing Seam Metal Roofing panels. These panels have the look of the old tin standing seam metal roof of the late 1800s and 1900s. While this option costs about 2 times more than asphalt shingles it provides you with a double lock panel that will not leak through the seams. It comes in low gloss colors which makes it look like a turn of the 19th century classy product but with 21st century roofing technology all our colors are energy star rated cool roof colors. We also offer the textured paint that will give this timeless metal roof even more definition.
Platinum Metal Roof
We have an unlimited number of option and styles with our Platinum metal roofing line. Copper Standing Seam is an elaborate but timeless style that the past has made popular. Stone Coated Metal roof come with a lifetime warranty what have stone granules crushed and embedded on the metal shingle that come in the look of Asphalt Shingle, Barrel Tile, Cedar Shake and Spanish tile looks. These have amazing beauty while maintaining a look of those profiles to blend into the neighborhood without drawing attention while giving you longevity you expected from our platinum line. Victorian Stamped Metal Shingles have a beauty that is desired by classic historians and architects. This was the status roof of the early 1900s, it came in tin, but now we offer it in a heavier gauge steel that is Galvalume having a prepainted surface which comes with a 35 year warranty on fade and paint integrity, it will outlast its tin Victorian stamped shingle which lasted over 100s years.
The Standard Metal Roof installation comes with our own developed W Valley, Riglet cut flashing, custom bent drip edge and apron, our Prepainted pipe coverings and synthetic underlayment. All our metal roofs come with 30-40 year paint and no Fade Warranties.
The Advanced comes with all the standard offerings plus the innovative attic ventilation only offered by Alpha Rain. We install our very own ventilation intake designed for our metal roofs to bring in air under our metal roof and into your attic without having to add any soffit vent. We then install a vented J channel make by us to make sure that you attic will bring in fresh air and allow it to escape. The entire design has been researched and tested to show an average temperature that we should be able to achieve in your attic. Don’t be confused with other metal ridge caps 99% of them do not vent any air. Our completed and exclusive designed attic ventilation system will allow fresh air to come into your attic and escape. We can install the Advanced installation with any of our lines of metal roofs.
The most energy efficient ventilation system is the Therma Vent system. We have been involved in the testing and helped with the development of this product. We install first the a layer of Radiant Barrier which reflects the radiant heat, then we install the Therma Vent panel which is a thermal break and stops the direct heat, and it has groves in it to which allow for any of the hot air that is built up to vent out, this stops the convective heat. We have installed this system in dozens of homes only to hear over and over again “It is a miracle.” It is not so much a miracle, it just has never been done before. We are able to take 150 degree attic and change that into 100 degrees just by installing our Therma Vent system. It draws the draft air in under our metal roof and then bring fresh air into the attic and while bring air up under your new metal roof and allows for the most complete ventilation in any system available on the market. This is the only Ventilation system that stops all 3 ways heat is transferred by Releasing, Reflecting, and Stopping the heat; it is installed directly under the metal roof and is in line with all warranties and installation standards. This product is available for other roofers to buy, but we on the only company who have proven results and knowledge about this product. Please ask us and ask other roofs about this product and see what you find out. The Platinum comes with the entire standard and incorporates the advanced within the Platinum.
What We Do
We have been installing Metal Roofing in Virginia Exclusively for over 15 years. The average age house we work on is over 100 years old. One of the biggest problems with homes that are this old is Ventilation. Most of the older homes with Standing Seam metal roofing have no thought to ventilation and in fact we have learned that newer homes have a huge problem with high temperatures in the attic even with so called “Proper Ventilation.” We have created a patented under metal roof ventilation system called the Therma Vent. We have been able to successfully change average attic temperatures of 150 degree down to 103 degrees consistently making our ventilation system the most energy efficient ventilation system in America.
