You remember the day when certainly one of your friends mentioned something about the benefits of a new metal roof and how great it had been. At that moment you thought your friend must have been clueless on a subject matter of metal roofing, or else they’d have never even consider making such a silly statement! After all, how can one imagine putting a metal roof on a house, when it probably makes loud noises when it’s raining out. Not only that, a having metal on your roof would certainly make your house seem like some sort of agricultural barn!
Oh man, That roof is really beautiful! And, Oh wait a minute, is that metal?

At the time, you also realized that it absolutely was the unusually sharp looking roof that has drawn your attention and made the home look so appealing that you simply had to take a closer look! Suddenly, you found yourself pulling over off to the side of the road, although you were already running late to your friends’ planned get together party. You’d one of those moments when you frankly had to stop, and look only at that unusual roof. You walked up to the house to acquire a better look at the roof.
Standing just some 15 feet far from the roof you could begin to see the beautiful lines of cedar shake design and the playful reflectance of the sun’s rays. You realized the roof you were looking at, was unlike any other roof you have seen before it had a beautiful look of ceder shake shingle, however, you could not quite tell what it was made out of. Or, might you? After going through many known types of roofing materials mentally, you realized this could in roof looked nothing like what you imagined it might look like.
It is not exactly what you’d in mind!
You were very surprised, even astonished to find out that a roof covered with metal can look so magnificent. After all, you have always pictured metal roofs as gray colored and rusty corrugated steel roof coverings over agricultural barns and old industrial buildings. You have heard most of the rumors about the loud noises they produce if it is raining, and the danger of lightning that they can attract. Nevertheless , this residential metal roof looked nothing like the image you had programmed in your mind, in reality it was the total opposite of it. It had the wonderful lines created by the well thought design of metal shingle tiles, metal ridge cap and the caliber of a metal flashing detail.
Another discovery you have made was that, it was not your house itself, that was magnificent, in fact the house was rather average, but it was the metal roof that made the house look like a million bucks.
