Standing Seam Shingle
Standing Seam Shingles are designed with a four-way interlock detail for weathertightness. The panels are installed over a solid substrate, with concealed fasteners. Transverse seams are staggered to provide a hybrid shingle and standing seam appearance. This product is available in aluminum or copper, in widths of 16" and either 36" or 60" in length, with a selection of over 35 stock colors or custom finishes.
Specialized finishes and coatings allow metal roofing to last 2 - 3 times longer than a traditional asphalt roof. Metal roofing often contains a high percentage of recycled content, and can be fully recycled at the end of its life.
