Aluminum Shakes Recognized

January 6, 2008 | Filed under: Miscellanous Articles,Uncategorized

In the January 5, 2008 edition of the Chicago Daily Herald, someone posed a question to their Home and Gardens editor considering roofing options. This person wanted the look of wood shakes on their home but they were concerned about the ultimate durability of those products.

In answering their question, the editor went through a very comprehensive description of wood shakes, the various types of wood and respective attributes of each. But, after going through all of that, they ended their answer with the following:

For the longest lasting roof, consider installing an aluminum roof formed to simulate cedar shakes. From the ground, it looks authentic. The large panels make installation quicker than real shakes or shingles. The aluminum roof can keep your house cooler during the summer and it is fireproof so your insurance premiums may be lower. – Chicago Daily Herald

Considering that Classic Metal Roofing Systems is the only manufacturer of aluminum shake products, we certainly appreciate their recognition of the durability and beauty of our products!
