The Metal Construction Association (MCA) is providing a Metal Roofing Certification Program for metal roofing products to help companies differentiate their products from the competition. The MCA Metal Roofing Certification Program is open to paint and coatings companies, roofing product manufacturers, coil processors, and roll formers.
Based on industry standards published in the Guide Specification for Residential Metal Roofing, this program offers certification of base metal and finishes. Currently certification for painted finishes and uncoated metal is available.
The certification label assists both contractors and consumers in choosing the right metal roofing materials for their needs. The MCA label differentiates quality levels of steep slope metal roofing by applying industry performance standards.
“The Metal Roofing Certification provides a basis for product comparison for the customer, and gives companies an advantage over their competition,” says Karl Hielscher, MCA’s executive director.
Approval for participation in the MCA Metal Roofing Certification is based on completion of an application that demonstrates that a company meets the criteria and agrees with the program requirements. The application can be found here.
Roofing products that meet the MCA Metal Roofing Certification criteria may be promoted as Metal Construction Association Certified Premium Painted, Metal Construction Association Certified Standard Painted, or Metal Construction Association Certified Natural.
