Who We Serve:
Contractors & Installers
S-5! was originally developed by a contractor, specifically for contractors, so we understand your pain points.
Developed by a Contractor...for Contractors
As a contractor, you have an important job to provide your customer with the most cost-effective solutions available that will perform as intended for the life of the roof. Our job is to help you make the most informed decisions possible to do exactly that.
We meet your needs through continued innovation and expertise in the field of metal roofing. Always in search of “The Right Way®” and continually working to improve upon it, we provide the highest quality products and highest level of customer service. Contractors entrust their reputations to S-5! products because we have worked so hard for so long to uphold our own.
How Does S-5! Serve Contractors?
S-5! products offer ease of installation for the contractor, are virtually maintenance-free for the owner, and are manufactured by a company with an unparalleled depth of knowledge within the metal roofing industry.
We offer contractors dependability. You know our name...our brand...and...our reputation because we have been serving this market since 1992. The founder is a renowned metal roof contractor, consultant, educator, author and teacher. We’re NOT a “jack-of-all-trades and master-of-none” company. Metal roofing components are not some kind of “bolt-on” offering for us. Metal roofing attachments are our only business! Our products are designed, tested, and engineered for site-specifics and installer-friendliness.
THAT’S WHAT WE KNOW BEST, AND IT’S ALL WE DO!

Our Products Are Virtually Maintenance-Free and Backed by Industry-Leading Lifetime Warranties

These warranties mean we stand behind our products for the life of the roof. S-5! products do not violate the roof warranty, and they are approved and recommended by almost all metal roof manufacturers.
