Metal Roofing Patented Installation

Watch this video and learn about the Billy Ellis aluminum roofing systems.

Injection-Molded Foam Backer

The Billy Ellis Injection-Molded Foam Backer fills the entire cavity of the aluminium shingle, thereby making the roof extremely strong. With the foam backer, you can walk on your roof. It also makes the roof much more hail-resistant and increases the energy efficiency. The Foam Backer is made of injection-molded polystyrene (the same thing coffee cups are made of). It is a great insulator.

Billy designed the foam backer with a four-way overlapping system, making it a roof all by itself. The Foam Backer makes the roof stronger, more hail resistant, more energy efficient and is an excellent sub-roof. This foam backer is full coverage. It overlaps top to bottom and side to side. This allows anyone to get on the roof without worry of causing any damage and it totally insulates the roof. R-5 Foam Backer.

If you walk on wood shingles they will split, clay or concrete tile will break, composition roofs will lose important granules, steel tile will dent if you are not careful to step on the battens and you also knock off protective granules. Walking on these roofs also voids the warranty.

Patented Miter Valley System

The Billy Ellis Patented Mitered Valley System carries the water off the top of the roof. Each valley shingle is custom made on the job and as an added safety feature we install our custom valley pan under the actual valley shingle. This creates a waterproof system that will last as long as your home.

Now take a look at the standard installation which allows water to penetrate the roof!

Gable Trim

Watch as the Billy Ellis crew makes and installs the valley and gable system, part of the aluminium roof.

Starter Trim

Doug and Martin install trim and put the first course of aluminium shingles on a residential home. Look at how they walk on the roof with no problems and see just how the interlocking system of our aluminium roof works to create a solid hold.

Check out this video where Billy does a water test of the two systems.
