Learning All About Roofing Materials

Hi, I'm Dwight Eberstark. I am crazy about all of the different types of roofing materials available today. While upgrading the roof on my home, I looked into the material options in great detail. I studied all of the different metal materials used to create modern shingles. I also looked into switching to asphalt, wood or tile shingles. I eventually settled on bronze shingles designed to last for decades. Instead of aging, the bronze finish just continues to improve. I also switched to metal gutters that make a beautiful sound when the rain falls onto the surface. I would like to share my passion for roofing materials through this site. Thank you for coming by.
