Here we’d like to answer some of the common questions we receive about PERMA-ROOF and the roof-over process. If there’s anything we didn’t answer, feel free to call us at (800) 633-8969, and a friendly staff member will be glad to help you.

Q: How is the PERMA-ROOF attached to my roof?
A: PERMA-ROOF is attached using a specially designed perimeter bracket that bolts directly onto the roofline of your existing mobile home, creating a solid frame for the other materials to attach to.

Q: How long does it take to attach the roof?
A: One day, in most cases. For some double-wide mobile homes and if extra elements such as patio covers are being installed, a second day may be required.

Q: What is roof-rumble, and will the PERMA-ROOF stop it?
A: Roof-rumble happens when strong winds and rains hit the roof. PERMA-ROOF puts an end to this.

Q: Do you provide overhangs with the PERMA-ROOF?
A: Yes. Every PERMA-ROOF comes with attractive one-foot overhangs on the long sides of your mobile home and six-inch overhangs on the short sides.

Q: Why do you use 29 gauge steel?
A: Steel is much stronger than rubber or aluminum. Through the years we have replaced thousands of competitor roofs. Perma-Roof 29 gauge has stood the test of time.

Q: Can I walk on my PERMA-ROOF?
A: Yes. Your roof is safe to walk on when you need to service a water cooler or for any other reason. In fact, the PERMA-ROOF is so strong, it would take quite an effort on your part to damage it in any way.

Q: Does you warranty cover both gauges of steel that can be used, and does it cover any shape and size of mobile home?
A: Southern Builders’ lifetime warranty guarantees no leaks due to faulty materials or workmanship, regardless of the gauge of steel and the style of your mobile home, for as long as you own it.

Q: Where is Southern Builders located?
We’re centrally located in El Dorado, Arkansas, and Lebanon, Tennessee – both within easy travel to your home in any of the 20 states we service from the Ohio Valley to the Gulf Coast, from west Texas to the east coast.
