Smartly designed with unmatched curb appeal, the patented* Eclipse Metal Roof System is strong and weathertight for new construction or re-roofing projects.

For the first time ever, you’ll benefit from a metal roof system that combines the structural integrity of a through-fastened roof with the sleek appearance of a standing seam metal roof. All at a lower cost than a standing seam metal roof cost.


"I highly recommend Smith Building Systems. I hired then to do remedial maintenance on our Lester Indoor Riding Arena. Upon arriving onsite, Mel quickly analyzed the structure, identified the work needed to resolve the problems after almost 20 years of use, and developed a plan to perform the work. He submitted a bid to accomplish the work, which was appropriate and fair. The work was performed to my total satisfaction. During the course of the project, Mel identified other minor tasks to improve the viability of the structure and completed those tasks also. I have other Lester buildings on the farm. When the other buildings are in need of maintenance, Mel will be the person I call."
