Metal Roofing Certification

MCA has launched a Metal Roofing Certification Program designed to promote widespread use of appropriate metal roofing products that have met designated quality standards. Homeowners, design professionals and contractors will now be able to clearly differentiate quality levels of steep slope metal roofing by applying industry performance standards and identifying the most appropriate metal roofing products for their needs. This effort is aimed at increasing consumer confidence in metal roofing.


Certification of metal roofing products is now available through the Metal Construction Association's Metal Roofing Certification Program. Based on industry standards published in the Guide Specification for Residential Metal Roofing, this program offers certification of base metal and finishes. Certification for painted finishes and uncoated metal is available, and the MCA Certification Committee anticipates adding certification for aggregate (granular) surfaces in the future.


The certification program has been developed to promote the widespread use of appropriate metal roofing products and to increase consumer confidence in choosing a metal roof.


Benefits of Metal Roofing Certification Program:

  • Assuring that correct base metals and exterior paint coatings are selected for the situation
  • Differentiating levels of product quality
  • Creating a credible basis for product comparison
  • Providing a means of verifying metal roofing performance


Roofing products that meet the certification program criteria may be promoted as "Metal Construction Association Certified Premium Painted™," "Metal Construction Association Certified Standard Painted™," or "Metal Construction Association Certified Natural™."


Participation in the certification program is available to:

  • Paint and coating manufacturers
  • Roofing product manufacturers
