In 2009, after twenty years of working in the roofing industry, Pat Fryer had an epiphany. He stood up and stepped back, looking at the roof he had just installed. Like a little bulb turning on, he had a crystal-clear thought - Metal Is Better. This idea led to the opening of his company, Metalsbetter; a company that would serve the greater Tulsa area in residential and commercial roofing.
He wanted people to know that their roofs could last longer and be better than the traditional roofing systems that most people are familiar with, like shingles and tiles. And, Pat wanted people to know that the price of metal roofing was comparable with those of standard shingle roofing. He made it a goal to educate homeowners and businesses about the benefits of metal roofing. Although Pat really loves the benefits of metal roofing, he understands that traditional roofing is also a very valuable roof and still installs them on a regular basis.
After installing dozens or metal roofs and working hard to build his business, in 2017 Pat expanded his roofing business into the Kansas City, Missouri residential, commercial & industrial roofing markets. He continues to be passionate about helping business and homeowners make informed decisions about their roofing needs.
In his own words, “We strive to put the needs and desires of our customers first and will do all that we can to offer a great product at a fair price." -Pat Fryer
