ABOUT THE BRAND
In 1989, Quality Edge was founded in a garage. The mission back then was simple. Make the best drip edge in the world and blow the customers mind by shipping it within 72 hours. QE raised the bar on the entire industry when it committed to manufacturing and delivering metal building products within 72 hours. When Quality Edge began, the competition’s lead times were 4-6 weeks. Today they’ve grown to three locations. They now ship to customers nationwide. They are unique from everyone else in the industry in that they offer more than just products—they offer the selling tools and systems required to sell our products, at both the contractor and homeowner point of sale. Their headquarters remain in Walker, Michigan, just outside Grand Rapids – about 30 miles from the natural wonder of Lake Michigan. The area’s economy maintains a strong manufacturing base, while thriving and growing in new directions. Today many people know Grand Rapids as Beer City USA for its collection of craft breweries and events. Others know it as the location of the international ArtPrize competition each fall. But they still remember our roots – and that garage.
PRODUCTS QUALITY EDGE MANUFACTURES
Water Always Wins – Until Now. Essential, yet so simple. Quality Edge’s wide variety of roof flashing solutions have been designed to minimize water back-up while maximizing the life of roofs, windows and walls - all while providing a layer of protection between the wall’s siding or brick and the roof’s sheeting. Quality Edge’s full-line of drip edge or perimeter edge flashings provides the visual appeal homeowners are seeking and the performance sophisticated builders and contractors rely upon to protect roofs, exposed edges and other areas exposed to the elements.
The Elements of Trim Coil. Choice is crucial when selecting the right product. Quality Edge offers a full line of trim coil in four distinct grades with a selection of finishes and textures and colors. Economy & Basic trim coil has been designed and engineered for you to compete with common trim coils. QE’s Q800 finish is designed to provide the kind of tough finish you need to resist peeling, cracking, chipping or delaminating. Some products boast of a lifetime warranty, but in the fine print, the warranties may only have 25 years or less of coverage on important items like fading or chalking.
QE’s TuffTech™ finish is designed to provide the kind of tough finish you need to resist peeling, cracking, chipping or delaminating. Some products boast of a lifetime warranty, but in the fine print, the warranties may only have 25 years or less of coverage on important items like fading or chalking. QE was the first to introduce a No-Mar Q5000® type paint system for use in exterior paint systems. Each No-Mar Q5000® coil is made from a high performance titanium stabilized and specially annealed alloy for greater performance in the brake and on the house. QE’s exclusive No-Mar Q5000® paint finish offers an unmatched scratch resistant surface with better UV protection than other conventional paint systems. PVC paint systems are the least environmentally friendly of all the paint systems available today. However, in some markets, contractors still desire a PVC finish because of the striated texture paint.
