Serving Northeast Indiana, Northwest Ohio, and Southern Michigan
A metal shingle roof is on the higher end of metal roofing options. While it trends on the more expensive side, it's a solid investment to make in your home.
Why? Metal shingle roofs last 2-3x longer than their asphalt shingle counterparts, they are extremely durable, can reduce electricity costs, and increase the value of your home.

What is a Metal Shingle Roof?
A metal shingle roof mimics the style of asphalt shingles. It combines the traditional look of shingles with the longevity of a metal roof.
Most metal roofs have a very modern look, which may or may not complement the look of your home. If you're looking for a durable roof but want a more traditional style, metal shingles could be the perfect option!
Benefits of a Metal Shingle Roof
The benefits of metal roofs far outweigh any higher costs associated with them. Here are a few of our favorites:
Longevity. A metal shingle roof can last 80 years with proper maintenance, which is 2-3 times longer than the traditional asphalt roof.
Durability. A metal shingle roof isn't prone to corrosion, cracking, or damage from the elements. With proper installation, the roof can withstand high winds and severe weather, including both rain and snow.
Low-maintenance. While a metal roof still requires regular inspections to ensure everything is structurally sound, it doesn't need nearly as much maintenance as an asphalt shingle roof.
Energy-efficiency. A metal shingle roof is great for energy efficiency — it can reduce your energy costs by up to 25%! It helps keep your home cool in the summer by reflecting warm sunlight.
Disadvantages of a Metal Shingle Roof
Cost. A metal shingle roof isn't the most budget-friendly option. Sometimes, it can come in at 2-3x more expensive than other roofing materials. That said, a metal shingle roof will far outlast other types of roofing materials, making that initial upfront investment worth it. Instead of paying to put 2-3 roofs on your home over the span of 60 years, your metal shingle roof will still be standing!
Noise. Due to the nature of the material, a metal shingle roof could be a bit noisy during a rainstorm. While this might be a con for some people, others enjoy hearing the sound of rain pattering on their metal roofs. To combat this sound, you could add more insulation to the roof (which also adds to the cost).
