Wood Shingles are an extreme fire hazard and have been outlawed in many parts of the country. Wood shingles are temporary and
deteriorate from water, heat and sunlight. As illustrated in the video below, Aluminum Lock shingles won’t burn like wood or asphalt products. Aluminum Lock shingles give you the shingle appearance most people prefer but also gives you peace of mind knowing your roof CANNOT catch fire. Knowing your roof is fire-proof will certainly give you peace of mind, and may save you money on insurance.
Cement tiles are extremely heavy, deteriorate with age, and suffer severe damage when walked on and from the weight of snow loads.
