It will be all one color.

Erie Construction Mid-West knows that for most people, the home is their largest single investment, and the roof of the home is a large part of that investment. The roof not only protects the home, it contributes to the overall look of the house it protects. That’s why when it comes time to repair or replace the roof, Erie Construction advises homeowners to consider three things.

First, the materials that are used – Erie Construction Mid-West knows that different areas of the country require different materials. For example, homeowners in fire-prone areas should avoid wood shake materials.  Homeowners in dry climates may suffer wear from hail or excessive heat, and windy conditions put constant stress on any roof.  The Erie Metal Roof from Erie Construction is available in styles resembling authentic shake, and defends your home against fire.  Erie Metal Roofing also resists hail, heat, and wind conditions to protect your home from the elements.
