Custom-Bilt Metals was founded in 1974 as a distributor to the gutter industry in southern California.

Custom-Bilt Shingles Shingles Warranty
Custom-Bilt manufactures and sells a side variety of metal roofing, but the warranty information on some of the products is rather sketchy. Contacting the company directly seems to be the preferred method of Custom-Bilt, but there is some information readily available on the product warranty.
The aluminum Country Manor Shake and the Rustic shingle both carry lifetime forty year transferable warranties.
The Vail line includes the Vail Titan, which carries a lifetime warranty of undetermined length and the Vail Majestic Copper, which has no warranty information available.
All of the Standing Seam roofing panels carry a thirty-five year no fade warranty on the paint used, but no other information on warranty for this roofing is available.
Contacting the company at 1-800-826-7813 for specific information seems to be the route to take for detailed information on warranties.
Custom Bilt Shingles Review
Custom-bilt Metals primarily operates on the West Coast of the United States, although there is a presence in Louisiana as well. Residential roofing is offered, but the strength of the company seems to be in the commercial sector, as the Standing Seam roof panels make perfect sense for shopping malls, office buildings or any structure with a large amount of square footage. The metal shingles and steel roofing may be top of the line, but the lack of specific warranty information leaves something to be desired.
Cost: There is not enough information available for a good price comparison to other similar type roofs.
