USA: Metal Shingles: Metal Shingle Manufacturers
ABOUT METAL SHINGLES
Metal shingles are available in steel, aluminum and copper. They are an alternative to traditional shingle materials such as wood, slate, and tile. Metal shingles have the advantage of being light in weight. Compared to wood shingles they are fire resistant. They can be provided with texture and coloring which makes them virtually indistinguishable from traditional shingle materials. Metal shingles resist mildew, splitting, cracking, curling and rotting. They are also often made from recycled materials. They tend to reflect sun rays back and reduce overall cooling needs in the house. Because they transfer heat evenly across the roof they tend to help snow melt.
The core of a steel shingle is usually made of aluminum, tin or fiberglass. It is shaped using a mold, aand is then sprayed with steel powder coating or is dip coated in stainless steel. A steel roof should last for at least 50 years if properly maintained.
