Metal Shingles Rosemeyer Roofing

Metal shingles represent a stylish option for a new roof on your residential or commercial building. This type of roof comes in many colors, lasts for decades, and installs on your roof easily. Rosemeyer Roofing can lay down a variety of different styles of metal shingles on your building, depending on your personal preferences. In today’s blog post, we explain how metal shingles work to protect your home or business.

Cost Versus Investment

Metal shingles may cost more up front than asphalt shingles. However, metal roofs last longer and are made with higher-quality materials. You might go through two or three asphalt shingle roofs in the same timeframe as a single roof made out of metal shingles. You will save a substantial amount of money on future replacement costs with metal roofs.

Colors and Styles

When you want a wide variety of colors and styles, metal shingles are the way to go. Manufacturers make metal shingles that complement homes in many styles, such as Victorian, Spanish Colonial, modern, brick, and even log cabins. The options are endless when it comes to colors, from black and brown to red and blue. The beauty of these types of shingles appears from the way they mimic other types of roofing, such as slate, asphalt, clay, and stone.

Metal shingles come in galvanized steel or aluminum. Some manufacturers create shingles from copper or zinc. All types of metal shingles resist corrosion, have special paint treatments, and protect your home from the elements.

Interlocking Design

The biggest advantage of metal shingles occurs the design. Rather than nailing in every metal shingle on a roof, manufacturers create them to interlock with each other. Roofers start at the bottom near the gutters with a single row of metal shingles nailed to the underlayment. Then, they work in a staircase pattern gradually until they reach the top. Metal shingles are actually easier to install than traditional roofs because they interlock and don’t need nailing along every row. Roofing contractors secure them using clips or built-in hems. Ease of installation means you save money on labor costs.
