A Guide to Buying Metal Panels | Metal Roofing

Consumer awareness is an important part of the purchasing process when you plan to buy metal roofing and metal panels.

When you’re doing the research portion of the purchasing process, here are some questions to ask.

What type of paint is on Lucas Metal Panels?

Our metal panels have a coating (a protective layer) applied to the base of the metal surface. We use Galvalume®, a zinc-aluminum alloy. This is applied to the metal panel before the paint coating, to help resist rusting or damage due to inclement weather.

Once this protective layer is completed, a ceramic colorant paint is applied. Lucas Metal Panels have a silicone-modified polyester (SMP) coating. This type of paint provides our metal panels with an impervious coating that protects its color and gloss for decades.

How many paint colors are offered for Lucas Metal Panels?

We offer (16) sixteen different colors to choose from. Check out the different colors available.

Are Lucas Metal Panels energy-efficient?

How long will the Metal Panels last?

Traditional roofing systems such as asphalt, usually lasts 20-30 years. Wood usually lasts up to 30 years.
