MRA Launches New Educational Resources For Homeowners

Portland, OR – New educational video resources focusing on the specific performance and sustainability benefits of residential metal roofing are now available for homeowners through the Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA), the leading nonprofit metal roofing trade organization in the U.S. and Canada.

Based on some of the most frequently asked questions and information requested by U.S. and Canadian homeowners, the organization has launched eight separate short videos covering key topics (Metal Roofing Difference - YouTube) including how metal roofs perform under harsh conditions, such as high winds, hail and lightning storms, wildfire, snow and ice. The videos also offer considerations and tips for incorporating a rooftop solar system, the sustainability properties of metal roofs and their care and maintenance.

Additionally, MRA has created 12 videos highlighting information covered in its Residential Metal Roofing Buyer’s Guide (Buyer's Guide - YouTube), a comprehensive free resource for homeowners trying to navigate the re-roofing process. The new Buyer’s Guide videos cover topics such as the different options for metal coatings, what to look for in an installer, understanding the re-roofing process, warranty guidance, care and maintenance and much more.  The Buyer’s Guide and the new video series are available as free resources at
