6/25/18 – Cardinal Building Products, a two-step distributor of low-maintenance high quality interior and exterior building products, is excited to announce the newest member of the Cardinal family: DECRA Metal Roofing.
DECRA® Roofing Systems, Inc., the company that invented the stone-coated steel roofing category and remains its leading manufacturer, is celebrating 60 years of excellence in successfully protecting residential and light commercial projects.
Cardinal Building Products will stock DECRA’s Villa Tile, Shingle XD, and Shake XD products. These roof products feature DECRA’s “cut and tuck” technology and all install direct to deck.
The durable panels provide safety and security beyond other roofing products. Made of corrosion resistant, aluminum-zinc alloy coated steel with an attractive stone finish, Villa Tile, Shingle XD, and Shake XD support foot traffic and will not crack, split, curl or break like traditional roofing materials.
For its 60th year in business, DECRA put renewed focus on roofing contractors and is offering great incentives for new contractors and home owners. For example, the company’s JUMPSTART program gives contractors who are new to using DECRA up to $5,000 over three installations, just for trying the product.
“There is no better time to be a DECRA contractor,” said Chad Colton, Vice President of Sales for DECRA. “Customers are very clear about the issues that concern them, so we provide products to contractors that address those issues and help them sell more product, create more brand equity in the market, and give them world-class training for their crews.”
All DECRA panels are easy to use with rain catchment systems and solar panel systems. DECRA products are supported by a 50-year limited warranty and all profiles are Class A Fire rated materials with Class 4 Impact Resistance to UL 2218.
“I am thrilled to have this world-class roofing system in stock at Cardinal Building Products.” said Herb Edwards, Cardinal’s General Manager, “Cardinal’s team is looking forward to providing DECRA products to the roofing industry throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.”
