What Architects are Saying


We understand that your reputation is everything.  That's why we place a high priority on being more than just another vendor in your project.  Instead we want to be your partner.    

Whether you’re designing a new monumental facility or something much more routine, we're glad to help with everything from product selection to detailing and installation questions for those tricky conditions.  

But don't take our word for it.  Check out these testimonials from Architects who have worked with McElroy Metal for years and appreciate the value we offer. 

Terry B. has been incredible to work with. He helped us pick a product that worked for our specific project needs, and talked through detailing and specifications that ensured the quality our client, and their project, deserved. He and McElroy continue to be the go-to for many of the folks in our office.

Little Diversified Architectural Consulting

"I’m very familiar of the high quality of the materials and with the design of the details. I once again worked very closely with Jon Farrer, sales manager at Brock Associates, and detailer Jeff Raymond, throughout the process to achieve an overall striking architectural design. We have worked together as a team to complete the designs for five additional projects, all utilizing McElroy Metal exposed fastener panels."

Sustainability for the Win!

Looking for a product that still hits both form AND function expectations after 50-60 years?  If so, it might be time to consider metal roof or wall panels for your next project.  

In addition to the long term aesthetic value and service life, Metal roofing is one of the most sustainable building materials available.  Not only can this class of products help reduce electrical load and utility bills by 25%-30% but it's also 100% recyclable. 

Sure other products like asphalt shingles and membrane roofing  accurately claim they "can be" recycled but the reality is they rarely are. Metal products on the other hand  have long recognized as the most recycled product in America.

Metal roofing is also an outstanding host product for solar applications.
