The Metal SHAKE Series offers a modern take on a classic roofing style, the cedar wood shake roof. Constructed of high quality, durable steel, the Shake series offers the distinctive dimensional wood shake look, without the pest control, fungus, and wood rot issues that affect traditional cedar shake roofing. The Metal Shake Series is also available in .032 aluminum, for coastal installations near saltwater.
Available in 8 standard colors and offered with either a smooth finish or a patented powder-coat application, the Metal Shake Series is our most popular style. In addition, all of our color selections and finishes are enhanced with our exclusive “HD” coloring treatment that gives the roof a sense of depth and contrast for a truly stunning look!

METAL ROOFING FAST FACTS
According to the Metal Roofing Alliance, the leading professional trade association for metal roofing, you can expect a metal roof to last at least 2 to 3x longer than an asphalt shingle roof.
To put it in context, the average lifespan of an asphalt roof is 12 to 20 years. That lifespan can be shorter, depending on the pitch of your roof and the climate in your area. Made of oil impregnated paper or fiberglass, asphalt begins to deteriorate as soon as you expose it to normal weather. A metal roof, however, will never decompose.
METAL SHAKE IS AN EXCELLENT REPLACEMENT FOR WOOD SHAKE!
While wood shake roofs are extremely durable and can last 50 years or more, eventually the wood degrades and must be replaced. However, cedar shake roofing is more expensive to install and has disadvantages that metal shake panels do not. Some of these issues with traditional wood shake include susceptibility to termite/insect infestations, wood rot, and fire.
Additionally, wood shake requires much maintenance than our Metal Shake panels. Over time, wood shake requires regular cleaning, staining, and sealing for the roof to reach its intended service life. Metal Shake does not require regular cleaning, is unaffected by insects, is fireproof, and offers exceptional resistance to impact damage.

SUPERIOR PROTECTION WITH POWDER COATING
Starting with a premium Kynar paint finish previously applied, MMR applies a patented powder coating that provides maximum protection for the metal surface. Unlike stone coated metal roofing, which has ceramic chips applied to the metal with an adhesive, powder coating involves electrostatically applying a specialized powder to the metal surface, which is cured under heat, forming a hard, permanent protective layer. Powder coating provides superior protection on metal roofing panels due to its method of application and ability to permanently bond with the metal surfacing. Finally, our HD highlight treatment gives the panels a sense of dimension, for a stunning look!
