Mueller Roofing - A Comprehensive Review

Mueller Roofing Review

Metal roofs are not just for barns and farmhouses anymore. The popularity of metal - namely steel - as a roofing material can be attributed to its longevity and durability. Steel roofing offers Class A fire resistance, malleability (able to mimic shingles, shakes, tile, etc), and an extremely long lifespan (often 30-50 years minimum). Not to mention that it's also lightweight, and energy efficient.

In this article, we at Brennan Enterprises are highlighting Mueller, Inc. - one of the most popular metal roofing companies in the US.

Why Mueller Roofing?

For 85+ years, Mueller has operated based on personal service and satisfying their customers in every way. Their products are manufactured here in the United States and designed to provide the best combination of affordability and longevity. Mueller’s manufacturing process paired with the durability of steel means you’ll enjoy a roof that’s practically maintenance free.

Roofing materials are specialized to your home’s specifications. All panels are made at one of their manufacturing locations and pre-cut to the appropriate lengths for your roof. Mueller’s roof products tend to be offered between 24 and 26 gauge. The lower the steel gauge, the thicker the material. The 26-gauge products offer a great combination of thickness and hardness.
