The homeowners of this stately New York home were impressed with the beauty and durability of EDCO’s ArrowLine Slate metal roofing.

Project Details

Not every roof is manufactured to withstand the test of time. On average, an asphalt roof will need to be replaced every 15-20 years, depending on the type of weather conditions it is exposed to throughout the course of a year. Over time, extreme weather conditions can cause the degradation of the granules on asphalt shingles which can result in the granules being deposited into gutters. For one homeowner in New York, finding a roofing material that is virtually maintenance-free gave them peace of mind.

The homeowners’ 20-year-old asphalt roof required frequent maintenance and clean-up. Shingles often blew off and granules from the asphalt spread across the property. They knew it was time for a different solution. Because the homeowner was planning to stay in their home for at least another 40 years, the homeowners compared the cost of two asphalt roofs to an EDCO metal roof. The comparable price and stunning appearance of the metal roof made the decision a simple one.

“It’s one of the best purchases we’ve ever made,” said homeowner John Prise. “If you didn’t know it was metal, you would think it was real slate.”

EDCO’s ArrowLine Slate in Statuary Bronze Blend was selected as it provides a stunning contrast to the home’s white siding and trim. Thanks to EDCO’s lifetime warranty, the Prises are confident in the strength and durability of their new roof.

“It’s solid. I sleep better at night knowing I don’t need to worry about the shingles blowing off,” said Prise.

Vitaly Dedovets, Owner and General Manager of Dalex Roofing, was also impressed with the appearance of EDCO’s roofing. He explained that the Prises had originally chosen a different product. However, after seeing EDCO’s metal slate roofing options, the Prises were excited to find an elegant roofing style and color that will make them the envy of their neighbors.

“Compared to other products we use, EDCO is my favorite,” said Dedovets. “It looks like a true slate roof.” Dedovets also added that this installation was his first experience with an EDCO product and he looks forward to using it again.

Both Prise and Dedovets added that the feedback on the installation has been extremely positive. For the homeowners, it’s about more than the appearance. Over time, EDCO’s metal roof is more cost effective and less disruptive than replacing the roof with asphalt every 15-20 years. The Prises can enjoy their new roof knowing they will never need to replace it again.
