Metal Roofing that looks like shingles or slate mix the low-profile look of popular architectural shingles with the longevity of lifetime metal roofing materials. Add the energy savings, low-maintenance and lifetime warranty to the list of positives and the metal shingles are a phenomenal option when compared to everyday shingles.
Important Note: With the severe weather in Texas, shingle roofs typically last about 15-20 years unless they are damaged by a hail storm and need to be replaced.
