Frequently Asked Questions

How cost-efficient is a metal roof?

Metal roofing is able to withstand wind, hail, and other elements of nature much better than a standard shingle roof, allowing you to avoid costly roofing repairs over time. These roofs can also last up to 50 years!

You may also be able to save through your home insurance as well by installing a rated metal roof.

Can metal roofing be installed over shingles?

Yes. Metal roofing can be installed over an existing shingle roof, however we do recommend placing an underlayment between the metal and shingles. Corrosion can occur if an underlayment is not used and this will void your warranty. A barrier of Permafelt or 1×4 slats can be placed under the metal to maintain the warranty.

Is my roof energy efficient?

Absolutely. A properly installed metal roof can save you up to 25% in energy costs compared to a shingle roof.

How do I prevent snow, rain, and insects from entering the roof?

This is one of our most frequently asked questions, and the answer is NO. The FastFrame™ system turns 20 gauge steel into trusses and wall studs custom-designed for each project.  Our in-house CAD designer converts all plans in our state-of-the-art software, which are then manufactured at our Jonesborough, Tennessee, facility.  Modular wall sections have door and window openings already placed, as well as pre-punched service holes, saving your contractor time and money.  Exterior sheathing, drywall, floors and interior trim work can be nailed or screwed down with our specially designed nails and screws.  FastFrame™ is truly a modern way to build.
