Residents are starting to have an interest in metal roofing due to cost, style and energy efficiency. Some though, do not like the look of the most common metal roof systems like the standing seam.

Metal shingles come in many styles and can also closely resemble asphalt shingles. There are even other types out there that look like wood shingles and wood shakes. 

The way the metal shingles work is that they are in a system of interlocking panels. This interlocking system holds them tight in place even with the high winds we get here in Indiana. It also keeps all fasteners concealed. Some metal shingles though interlock on the top and bottom, not all metal shingles are the same. 

The metal shingles offer durability and fire resistance as well as fungus resistance that you can get in asphalt shingles. The metal shingles can give your home a unique look.
