The roofing contractor estimates they can last over 50 years with periodic maintenance.
Mt. Juliet, TN: During his 15 years as a metal roofer, James Kenton assisted his former employer in developing an innovative roofing solution that promised the longevity expected of metal roofs and combined it with security, energy efficiency, and protection. Kenton then moved to Nashville, Tennessee. He plans to complete 30 years in the metal roofing industry at James Kenton Tennessee Metal Roofing.
Metal roofs are fast replacing asphalt shingle roofs due to low maintenance, better energy savings, and an average life span of 40–70 years. Their asphalt shingle counterparts don’t last nearly that long, a point Kenton has tried to make multiple times during his 25+ year career.
“James has advocated for metal roofs through the scope of his services,” said a roofer working for the independent contractor. “He wants everyone to know that, as rigid and unyielding as those metal plates look, they are far from it. You can bend them—hypothetically—to your preferences and get the desired result. Do you want a blue roof? Or is tan a better match for your home? Do you want to remove your existing roof or keep the old one to save costs? James and co are willing to do all that and more for their customers.”
The metal roofer is no stranger to installing new roofs over existing roofs in a process called retrofitting. He credits his business’s longevity and the longevity of most roofs to the process. He even recommends it to new homeowners and third-party customers brought to his company by firms outsourcing his services. The metal roofs are retrofitted for an added layer of protection, whereas skipping the removal of existing roofs helps save on the project’s overall costs.
Kenton has taken a backseat of late, focusing instead on the managerial aspects of his roofing business. His duties involve walking customers through the steps of a project, coming up with accurate estimates, preparing schedules, and ensuring everything goes to the letter to remain on-brand and earn his customers’ unerring loyalty and satisfaction.
