Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. In the case of structural engineering and roofing, imitation is the natural progress of science and technology. Truthfully, everyone loves traditional roofing materials because of their appeal. However, there's only so much reinforcement manufacturers can provide for clay and asphalt roofing shingles.
However, steel has better options ahead of it, and for this reason, many roofing manufacturers have focused on manufacturing imitation asphalt shingles and clay tiles. These have a galvanized or galvalume steel material with a special coating that allows them to appear like traditional asphalt or clay tile roofs.
From the curb, they will look like real traditional roofs that top-notch roofers in Littleton, CO can perform. Close-up, they're mostly pattern-printed acrylic elastomeric or powder-coated roofing. Truthfully, it has its downsides, such as the paint's natural peel, especially when it's reaching its lifespan's end.
However, suppose you're looking for the best alternative to traditional roofs without having to use the one-way shape of standing seam and corrugated metal roofs. In that case, metal shingles can deliver the results you want from your project. Read more about it from Certainteed's description on its Matterhorn Metal Roofing Shakes.
Matterhorn® metal shake roofing is expertly created to perfectly capture the look of real wood with the protective benefits of steel. Chiseling and cracks are used to mimic the organic look of real wood and include eight separate elevation changes to replicate the irregularity of real wood shakes.
Matterhorn Shake is pre-weathered, aged and distressed to recreate the look of authentic wood shakes. Our paint application technique uses highlights to change the visual temperature of each panel. Optically, the warm hues advance, while the cool hues recede.
High wind and water is no match for Matterhorn Shake metal roofing. A specialized chiseled channel is at maximum height to allow constant water movement away from the roof deck. And Matterhorn's high wind rating is thanks to our four point locking system secured with a patent pending concealed clip.
Matterhorn® Shake metal roofing is authentically crafted light-weight, fully recyclable, energy efficient and forged in steel. Each panel is comprised of a carbon alloy steel core, with hot-dipped G90 Zinc Phosphate anti-corrosion coating, plus an exterior PVDF paint system. With its colors designed to recreate the hues of natural shake, Matterhorn Shake adds a warm, custom-crafted appearance to your home. (Continued)
