May 2016, Metal Era

Luna & Associates is proud to announce our new partnership with Metal Era in Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas and Western Missouri. Based just outside of Milwaukee in Waukesha, WI, Metal Era has been a leader in metal edge design and fabrication since their inception in 1980. Their geographic proximity to the areas Luna & Associates serves, allows them to provide quality custom commercial and residential roofing products that exceed all code requirements, at a market competitive price.

Metal Era has not only provided innovatively designed products, they have stream lined their manufacturing process so that they can provide their products to meet your project deadlines. When ordering one of 15 standard colors, edge systems can be shipped within 5 days of receiving an order. They have done this by adding state of the art robotics and adding production capacity by increasing their facility size to 100,000 square feet. The robotics have not only increased efficiency, they have increased the consistency of the finished products. This insures that you will have a uniform finished look without a lot of unseemly relief cuts and cover plates that can be found when using standard shop fabricated metal edging.

Metal Era not only provides cutting edge low slope commercial roofing products, they also provide engineered airflow systems for standing seam and shingle roofing systems. Ventilation is key to preventing ice dams from forming and extending the life of the roofing system itself. These systems are designed to flow a measured amount of air under the roofing system to maintain a consistent temperature under the roofing system, a key factor in performance and longevity.

As always, if you have any questions or you would like to discuss a project where Metal Era may help determine your specification approach, please contact your local Luna & Associates Representative to discuss in further detail.
