•An extensive sustainable design palette. Choose from 13 different profiles and more than 30 colors. Incorporate energy efficient infrared-reflective paint systems, roof panels manufactured using recycled materials and incorporate photovoltaic laminates to harvest energy from your roof.
•Preserve the environment. Drexel Metals uses recycled metal for our roofing components, which are themselves recyclable at the end of their life. Drexel also offers state-of-the-art photovoltaic laminates that can be applied to your roof’s surface to capture solar energy and reduce your electric bills. Sustainable materials and UV reflective pigments help to reduce cooling costs and achieve LEED credits.
•Your concept-our design. Bring us your building concept and we’ll figure out how to design your project so it reflects your creative vision while keeping it watertight. Drexel’s unique engineering and design support are always there for you.
•Protect your owner, their property and their investment. A Drexel Metals roof is the last line of defense between nature and your most valuable assets and cherished belongings. Drexel Metals Roof Systems meet the most stringent code requirements in the nation, able to withstand up to 150 mph+ winds, hail, fire, and wind-driven rain.
•Get a longer lasting metal roof. Roof warranties are worth only as much as the company that stands behind them. Drexel Metals roofs have proven to last more than twice as long as asphalt shingle roofs, thereby minimizing re-roofing costs and maintenance expenses, while helping to create a more secure building envelope.
•Quality that shines through under any conditions. Quality control is a hallmark of Drexel Metals products. From the mill to jobsite, Drexel Metals follows stringent quality assurance programs to ensure the installed product will perform.
- Custom Fabrication. Drexel Metals Inc. recently acquired Met-Fab Manufacturing, a custom architectural sheet metal company that we expands our custom product offering. This allows Drexel Metals to supply specialty products and custom “one of a kind” building products. From custom cornice products, tapered domed panels to chimney caps…if you can think it Drexel Metals can design and make it.
- One throat to choke. As a manufacturer, Drexel Metals knows the buck stops with us. Our warranty programs are realistic, our support has won us awards within the metal construction industry and our ability to react is industry changing. Performance matters to Drexel Metals Inc.!
