Butler Manufacturing and the Impressive Story of the MR-24 Roof System


Butler Manufacturing has a long, proud history of providing the industry's best roofing solutions. The company's MR-24 roof system, known for its factory punched panels, Pittsburgh double-lock seams and moveable clips is regarded as the finest standing seam metal roof system in the world. Ideal for projects where weathertight performance and performance under changing temperatures are essential, the MR-24 system has become a mainstay in the industry, where it is chosen for its proven reliability and long-term cost effectiveness.

The Strengths of the MR-24 Roof System from Butler Manufacturing


A building's roof is like a suit of armor. Taking over 90% of the yearly wear and tear, the roof safeguards your building's valuable internals: products, equipment, tooling and personnel. It endures regular onslaughts from rain and snow, heat and cold. Like armor, roofs, too, can become damaged. They can suffer blows that threaten their integrity. And, like armor, when a roof failure occurs, the cost can be catastrophic. In light of this, investing in a rock-solid, proven roofing system – like Butler's MR-24 system – is an investment in your building's livelihood.
