How can I buy aluminum shingles?
Aluminum shingles can be purchased in various ways, but the most effective is via phone call. Over the phone, we can gather important information on your roofing needs, measurements, and preferences. We will then need to measure your roof either in person or through platforms such as Google Earth in order to give you the best experience possible.
Luckily for you, we only require material payment when the order is made. For full roof installation, we ask for half of the total when the contract is agreed on and the rest when the job is fully finished.
