What Are Metal Shingles?
Put simply, the name is fairly self-explanatory. These shingles are created to simulate the appearance of traditional roof shingles. There are, however, two major points worth noting. One, metal shingles mimic the appearance of not only traditional American asphalt shingles, but also shake, standing seam roofs, and even come with a few unique designs as well. Secondly, metal shingles provide all of the benefits of any other metal roofing type, bringing you all of the perks, with some added variety.
Metal shingles aren’t exactly a new trend, but they are trending up. The number of homeowners choosing metal roofing materials has more than quadrupled since 2005! Why? Because metal offers perks that no other roofing material provides.
The Benefits of Choosing Metal Shingles
The majority of the perks for using metal shingles go hand in hand with other metal types, but there are a few perks unique to them as well:
- Weight. Metal roofing, despite expectations, is exceedingly lightweight. Most metal roof types rest within 100 or so pounds per square, whereas concrete and other stone tiles are near five times or more in weight per square.
- Durability. Despite appearances, metal shingles are very durable, providing excellent wind and storm resistance.
- Efficiency. Metal reflects thermal energy, helping to reduce energy costs for our warm Georgia summers.
- Resistant to fire. Metal roofing has the best fire rating on the market, helping keep you and your home safer.
With all of these perks, you would think everyone would simply choose metal, yes? Well, we have no intentions of steering our consumers wrong. Metal roofing is exceptional, and we love working with it.
