Drexel Metals ARM Program Offers Metal Roofing Contractors Support

Metal roofing contractors can expect all the support they need to make life better from the Drexel Metals Association of Regional Manufacturers (DM-ARM) program. Contractors who are part of DM-ARM can offer their customers metal roofing systems that are fully tested and engineered. Contractors are installing a system with a Never Worry Warranty that certifies manufacturing as well as the installed metal roofing system.

“Our ARM members are great at installing even the most complicated metal roofing systems,” says Brian Partyka, president of Drexel Metals. “What they get from membership is a system backed by testing and engineering; they have access to technical support, on-site training and machine maintenance. These are just some of the things we are dedicated to help with.”

Drexel Metals offers its ARM members custom shop drawings, code compliant systems, technical support, on-site training, machine maintenance and a quality assurance program. ARM metal roofing contractors can offer custom or standard trim, as well as curved roofing panels. A popular component to the ARM program is the company’s Metal Roofing on Demand, delivering standard material within days. Other benefits of ARM membership include help with improving a website or building a new company site and assistance with marketing.

Drexel Metals Signs on as a Member of the Metal Roofing Alliance

Drexel Metals has joined marketing forces with other metal roofing manufacturers by signing on as a member of the Metal Roofing Alliance.

The MRA was formed with the goal of educating residential consumers about the styles and benefits of metal roofing. The membership is made up of metal roofing manufacturers and installers who are eligible to receive customer leads from MRA website.

“The Metal Roofing Alliance has done great work, getting the word out about metal roofing for residential applications,” says Brian Partyka, executive vice president of business development at Drexel Metals. “The MRA marketing plan has been very effective in helping metal become a more acceptable choice for homeowners when they need to replace their failing asphalt shingles. When people are educated on the benefits, it’s easy for them to see that metal is the better choice.”

Partyka, who was also voted to the MRA board of directors, says Drexel Metals’ DM-ARM (Drexel Metals Association of Regional Manufacturers) members will benefit from the MRA lead program.

“We’re excited Drexel Metals has joined the Metal Roofing Alliance,” says Bill Hippard, MRA’s executive director. “The MRA can certainly benefit from the input of the experts at Drexel Metals in guiding the MRA moving forward. Drexel Metals is now a part of our multi-million dollar campaign to increase the residential metal roofing market in 2015 and beyond. We currently have 15 manufacturer members and I hope to bring that to 20 by the end of the year.”
