  • 6 TYPES OF METAL SHINGLES FOR YOUR ROOF
  • WHAT ARE METAL SHINGLES?  Metal shingles are becoming a much more popular roofing material choice because of how long they last. Typically, roofs are made of wood shingles or of asphalt/fiberglass combination shingles.  These types of shingles tend to warp and leak only after a decade or two. Plus, they aren’t as durable against harsh weather conditions, while metal can withstand even fires.  The following slides outline the six most common metal shingles used for roofs:
  • 1. ALUMINUM SHINGLES  Aluminum shingles are perfect for those who are a little more budget conscious. They come in a variety of colors and the paint can last up to 40 years.
  • 2. STEEL SHINGLES  If aluminum shingles are af fordable, then steel shingles are a downright “steal.” Almost anyone can af ford them because they are quick and easy to produce and still extremely durable and long lasting. They also come in a variety of colors and you can even custom-make your own colors.
  • 3. STAINLESS STEEL SHINGLES  Ultra-permanent and utterly striking, stainless steel shingles are a great option for those who want to make more of an aesthetic statement.  People who live on the coast would love these shingles because they are highly resistant to salt spray, extreme weather conditions and pollutants.
  • 4. ZINC SHINGLES  With a clean, contemporary look, zinc shingles look classic no matter what the era. They have actually been used for centuries in traditional building and are still withstanding time.  Zinc shingles come in the following colors:      Natural Pre-weathered Quartz Charcoal black Subtle hues of green, red, blue
  • 5. COPPER SHINGLES  Copper shingles are perhaps the most beautiful of all shingle types. They produce an aesthetically breathtaking ef fect when properly installed and are 100% maintenance free.  The also come in a variety of finishes, such as the following:  Chemically treated copper (to produce different colors)  Oxidized copper (brown)  Pre-patinated copper (teal green)
  • 6. COPPER-CLAD STAINLESS SHINGLES  These particular shingles are created by rolling copper and stainless steel together in thin strips. You basically get the best of both worlds: The strength of stainless steel and the beauty and patina of copper. Plus, it’s a little cheaper because it’s not purely copper.
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE?  Choosing a metal shingle to install on your roof with metal roofing supplies depends on how much money you are willing to spend.  If you have a smaller budget, aluminum and steel are your best options. If you’re going more for durability AND striking beauty, copper or copper-clad stainless shingles are your best bets.
  • METAL ROOFING IS WORTH THE INVESTMENT  If you want a roof you don’t have to take care of, you should invest in a metal roof. They are durable, long lasting and pretty to look at.  Plus, they’re easy to install with the proper metal roofing supplies. Most metal shingles today are interlocking.  To find more information on metal roofing shingles, visit finemetalrooftech.com or call 801 -462-5264.
