Many competitors do not understand that roof leaks are one of the most damaging, expensive, frustrating, long term, maintenance and repair items that a customer may deal with in any building structure. As such, it is the last place that a customer would want to cheapen the building. The roof fasteners and proper installation is the most important part of the roof system. Armor Buildings come with the highest quality fasteners, available in surgical stainless steel, which has a lifetime warranty on the roof and wall panels. This provides a lifetime of use without oxidation or rust and matches the shiny galvalume coating. For color coated panels we provide stainless steel color coated caps that match the wall panel colors. The fasteners come standard with self tapping for panel overlaps, or self drilling for panel to structural steel attachment which eliminates the time consuming pre-drilling of holes. The fasteners also come standard 1-1/4" long to accommodate up to 4" insulation, with pre-assembled washers so that when properly installed with the 7/8" mastic, it seals air-tight, and prevents over drilling which can rip the penetrations causing burrs and crack the paint, all of which may cause rust and roof leaks. Fastener counts are calculated and weighed to the ounce to eliminate shortages and come with 2-5% additional fasteners to assist you with those you drop.
COMPETITION: Because many competitors only ship a product and do not have the best result for their customers in mind, or they don't have to live with the long term repair cost of the roof system as their customers do, some of them provide only a 1" fasteners and can charge extreme amounts for change orders later to get the correct length of fastener for your insulation. Many times you will have the expense of paying for fasteners to be delivered separately, after the building is delivered because the correct length was not determined prior to delivery. Most competitors provide "standard count" zinc fasteners which they may call a "Long Life" fastener. They may not even have the pre-assembled washers which will allow rust on the steel burrs from the fastener penetrating the roof. Unless you have educated yourself enough to know to demand the stainless it is very unlikely you will get them. Armor believes you deserve and expect quality and it should come included, not only if you know to ask for it.
