I am writing to tell you how pleased my wife and I are with the new roof your company recently put on our home in North Carolina. The job was professionally done in the time frame we agreed on. It looks great! Please pass along our compliments to your employees.
Thank you for providing such good service.

All of the people we dealt with were very professional. They were more than willing to answer any questions. The job was finished in a timely manner and everything was cleaned up before they left.

Needless to say, we are very pleased with our new roof. We can highly recommend this company.

To Advanced Metal Roofing,

I would like to express my gratitude for the professional manner in which all personnel involved in my recent purchase and installation of a metal roof. From Chris Mickey, the salesman who first worked with us to purchase the roof, to the installers, the office personnel, everyone was helpful, professional and concerned that we receive the best of service.

We are thrilled with the new roof which has really improved the appearance of our home.

We have had several people stop to look at it and take down information from the sign.

From start to finish this was a first class job and I would recommend Advanced Metal Roofing to anyone interested in a metal roof.

Once again, thank everyone at Advanced Metal Roofing for a wonderful experience from start to finish.

Dear Friends,

We are very pleased with our new metal roof & have had nothing but compliments about it.

We commend the young crew of men who installed it mannerly, quietly, and efficiently.

The salesman or spokesman, Eddie, answered our questions before we made the final decision on this project.

Last, but not least, Barbara, of Customer Service was nothing but helpful.

Thanks so much for a great job!

Please read the Employee's comment

AUTHOR: anonymous - ()

The former employee is completely correct, every part of this business you deal with is all owned by the same person. The sales poeple under one company, the contractor another, the material another and the financing yet another. They are all the same business just filed under different names. Please please please search the internet for Pro-tite. James P. Kenton was jailed in NH by the Attorney General for deceptive busines practices, which is why he moved to NC because he was no longer allowed to own a business in the state of NH.

Thank you for this information whoever you are....

AUTHOR: Knight65 - (U.S.A.)

We are fallen victims of Advanced Metal Roofing. I have a post on here from Fayettevile NC as well. They well at least tried to scam us into purchasing their product telling us that they have a patent product through the "Metalman crap. But I got a call from another customer warning us not to purchase product from these people. Only bad thing is we gave them a deposit of $500.00 pending funding for this project. Well, after finding out that we did not get approved for the original amount, we canceled the loan and called to cancel the contract. Well the company stated that we did not cancel within the 3 day grace period. Well, Mr. Medlin the salesman stated that we were not under contract until we sought funding that would cover the cost of materials which we did not. So thank you for posting this information. Because we will indeed contact the Attorney Generals office in reference to this matter. They have even sent us papers with intent to sue us for 50% of the original cost of materials that were never even ordered which amounts to over $10,000. They will never see it. But again, thank you for the post. It have been a great help to us.

Want the truth? Here it is.

AUTHOR: Ex Employee Who Knows All - (U.S.A.)

Folks this Company claims to have exclusive rights to a patented roofing system that only they can sell in North Carolina. This is stated to be Metal Man Roofing.

Well, the actual owner of this 'Franchise' is the same individual that owns Advanced Metal Roofing. There is no franchise. There is only Advanced Metal Roofing. So what does that mean? Here this company has set up a false franchise that makes it appear that they have exclusive rights. THERE IS NO FRANCHISE. THERE ARE NO EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS. THE ATTORNEY GENERAL HIMSELF HAS BEEN BAMBOOZLED AS THE FRANCHISE OWNER AND THE BUSINESS OWNERS ARE FILED WITH THE STATE OF NC!!!!

There is no patent and not even on the paint coating (which is Kynar) because it's a Dupont Product and Dupont does not patent because patents end and are then learned! Further, Kynar paint is soft baked. It scratches easily. Therefore it is as susceptable as other paint coatings are to rust.

Kynar paint has a 40 year warranty. If you don't believe this go ask.

Search this website (ripoff) for Pro tite in New Hampshire. The owner of Advanced Metal Roofing was run completely out of the state by the Attorney General and they were barred from doing business there!

You are lied to about the product. You are lied to about this ridiculous JOINT VENTURE which is in reality 5000 over cost plus profit. They split 50/50 with whatever amount a salesman thinks he can get. Then they don't pay him!

Then they 'dangle' a lifetime warranty whereas Kynar paint is only warranted for 40 years. They figure no one will call them in 50 plus years because THEY WILL NOT BE HERE EITHER!!

I intend to put all of their 'mess' right on this website. The reason for doing it will also be posted. Since its the truth there is nothing that they can do about it. It is time someone did something.

It is deceptive trade practices that are key here. Contact the North Carolina Attorney General with your problems. That is the answer.

This is just one of several posts that will be forthcoming in the next several days.
