After a thorough research, we were left to choose between electrical panels or a metal roof. We opted for the later, for both, safety and aesthetic reasons. We found Interlock Industries through internet-Google- search. We are pleased with our 2 choices (metal roof and Interlock) for the following reasons, with few remarks:

Interlocking metal shingle roof is the second most popular type of residential metal roofing, after standing seam. There is a huge variety of different metal shingle styles from many different manufacturers. Most common metals used to manufacture metal shingles are G90 galvanized steel and aluminum, though you can also find a few types of copper and even zinc shingles.

I totally agree, if you own a classic colonial type home or a brick house, then a metal shingles roof is definitely the way to go. Metal shingles are not only aesthetically pleasing, but they can also help cut down on air conditioning. Metal deflects a lot of the heat that hits your house. I’ve also heard that metal roofs last pretty long. Definitely worth looking into if you’re in need of a new roof!

Once the first row of shingles is installed, most roofing contractors start “building a stair” or staggering the shingles and adding rows on one side of the roof so that each new diagonal run of shingles would have as many shingles as possible. Basic premise here, is that you don’t want to install one row at a time, by going from one end of the roof to another. You want to run as many rows of shingles at once, as possible. See the video below, which will demonstrate the installation of aluminum interlocking metal shingles.

Another popular type of metal shingles is a simple flat tile impression, which is basically a smooth surface metal shingle, with stiffening ribs in the middle, which create the look of separate tiles. Same stiffening ribs are used in all other types of metal shingles.

Jeff, I think that getting a metal roof is a very valuable thing to do. I had a metal roof put on my last house and it actually helped raise the value of the home when I sold it. Yes, I know that it is improbably to think that you might live at the same residence for a 100 years, but, because of the durability that the metal adds, you can recoup that money if you end up selling your house.

Metal shingles are manufactured using a stamping press, through which the metal coil is fed, and the die stamps the shingle in two or three steps. First, the profile of the shingle is stamped out, with the lock flanges. Then, in step 2 and/or 3, the locks are made, and the shingle comes out of the press and is packaged into the box.

Distinguishing characteristic of metal shingles is the low profile and a four-way interlocking design. Low profile allows for easy walking on metal shingles (during installation), without damaging the shingles, along with a simplified roof flashing system (easier to install, and hence costs less compared to standing seam).

Most metal shingles systems are installed from the eave of the roof, up. The first course of shingles is locked or hooked onto the drip edge / starter trim, which is nailed or screwed to the properly prepared roof deck. Metal shingles are attached to the roof using nail and either special built-in hems or clips.

This is some great information, and I appreciate your point that low profile metal shingles are less expensive to install. I knew metal was a good option for residential homes, but I didn’t know that it could be installed as shingles! My husband and I are looking for a replacement for our roof, so we’ll definitely look into this as a less expensive option. Thanks for the great post!
