Each option has its own benefits. Before you select an option, take the time to learn the benefits, and decide if they make sense for your building, budget, and needs.

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.
