If you are a homeowner considering installing a metal roof on your house, but are worried that it will make your house look like a barn, then consider installing an architectural metal shingles roofing system, which can provide the same superior performance as other premium types of residential metal roofing. A metal shingles roof offers a unique look of conventional roofing materials and systems including slate, cedar shingles, tiles, and more. With an average cost of $850 per square (100 sq. feet), a metal shingles roof is about 30% less expensive than a comparable quality, architectural standing seam roof, while providing the same level of roof protection, durability and longevity.

If you own a classic colonial type home or a house made of brick, then a metal shingles roof is definitely one of the ways to go, especially if you want to preserve that authentic look, yet, have all the benefits of a metal roof.
