Compare roofing options and you will see why Aluminum Lock shingles are your best option.
Asphalt Composition Shingles are dried out by heat and ultraviolet sun rays. Asphalt also retains heat, making your attic and home hot in the summer. Snow and ice buildup can cause problems as well. Aluminum Lock shingles will always be a better choice.
Wood Shingles are an extreme fire hazard and deteriorate in water, heat, and UV.
Aluminum Lock shingles won't burn like wood or asphalt products. Knowing your roof is fire-proof will certainly give you peace of mind, and may save you money on fire insurance.
Aluminum Lock shingles are interlocking and will not work loose from expansion and contraction, due to temperature changes. Aluminum Lock shingles also provide an attractive "shingle" look, with all the advantages of metal.
Steel retains heat. Aluminum does not. A finish must protect steel or it will rust. Temperature changes cause expansion and contraction, and loosening in long sheet-metal panels. The Aluminum Lock system will not work loose from the temperature changes. More steel roofing photos.
Cement tiles are extremely heavy, deteriorate with age, and suffer severe damage when walked on and from the weight of snow loads.
Now that you have taken the time to compare roofing products you can see the obvious reasons why Aluminum Lock shingles are superior.
Aluminum Lock Shingles can be walked on. They are fully supported by the roof's sheeting, which prevents damage from foot traffic, or hail. Because the shingles lie directly over tarpaper, and the plywood sheeting, there is virtually no noise from rain or hail.
Aluminum Lock shingles are good for the environment. Aluma-Lock shingles are made using over 90%-recycled aluminum, and even after many decades of protecting your home, your Aluma-Lock or Copper Lock shingles will have value as a recyclable material, and will not end up in the garbage dump or land fill.
Unlike heavy conventional shingles, Aluminum Lock shingles can be installed over existing shingles in most cases. This feature alone may save you thousands of dollars.
Besides being nailed down, each Aluminum Lock shingle interlocks on all 4 sides with surrounding shingles. They also lock securely into flashings around all roof edges. This makes an aluminum roofing shingle extremely wind proof. All nails are covered in the locking process. This adds to the roof's clean, beautiful appearance, and also prevents the nails from working loose.
Copper Lock Shingles that lock on all 4 sides at very competitive prices.
Our copper lock shingles are made from 12 oz. pure copper coil and have the same 4 side interlock as the Aluminum Shingles. Not only will you get a very distinguished look to your home, but our copper lock shingles are functional and practical as well. Since each shingle is nailed down, as well as interlocked on all 4 sides, our copper shingles are both more windproof and waterproof than other brands of copper shingles that only lock on the top and the bottom.
Our Copper lock shingles can be walked on! The low profile design prevents crushing from snow or foot traffic. Copper lock shingles are a great choice because they are low-maintenance, high quality. Year after year, you will enjoy an attractive, lifetime roof. More copper lock shingle photos.

Weight build up is not a concern with Aluminum Lock shingles because not only are the shingles extremely lightweight, but the snow slides off as well. This prevents dangerous weight and ice buildup on eves. Ice buildup is a major cause of leaks with conventional roofing. The need to risk personal injury from snow removal is eliminated as well.
Aluminum Lock shingles weigh less than 40lbs. per 100 sq. ft. Copper Lock shingles weigh 110 lbs. per 100 sq. ft. Conventional asphalt shingles weigh 5 to 10 times the weight of Aluminum Lock shingles! Aluminum Lock shingles are naturally heat reflective. Aluminum Lock shingles reflect away the sun's heat in the summer. In the winter, your heat comes from the inside and is reflected back in.
