We're bringing you today's from our friends at Coated Metals Group, a coil manufacturer. CMG is our source for preminum finished steel and aluminum - it's the stuff we turn into our signature diamond shingles. Thanks for the post, CMG!

As homeowners seek out longer lasting and more energy efficient materials for their homes, metal roofing continues to grow in popularity among the residential market. Metal roofing is becoming a top choice because it is 100% recyclable, reduces energy costs and will last the lifetime of your house.

Even with all of the benefits of installing a metal roof, you may be hesitant to install one because you are worried about how it will affect the aesthetics of your home. We all know how important curb appeal is when it comes to the resale value of your house. Fortunately, as the popularity of metal roofing grows, so do the number of options you have for metal roofing.

The Diamond Roof Shingle by Metal Roof Network

One option for your home is the diamond roof shingle system from Metal Roof Network. This signature profile offers a distinctive look with plenty of curb appeal. The shingles are made with a variety of materials such as copper, zinc and CMG’s coated steel or aluminum, allowing a homeowner a unique look with endless color options to compliment the exterior of their home.


A second option for your roof is CMG’s TEXTURED steel coil. TEXTURED is a unique textured finish that diffuses the sunlight to reduce the glare common with standard standing seam metal roofing. It provides dimension and depth over traditional painted surfaces, making it an appealing option to the residential customer.

TEXTURED offers several features:

- Rich, deep, appealing visual appearance

- Unique textured finish reduces the appearance of oil-canning

- Standard 35-year finish warranty

- Enhanced durability and scratch-resistant finish

Considering these four items may help steer you in the right direction for selecting the proper color for your new metal roof. This will ensure your house looks right at home in the neighborhood and has curb appeal to spare. Most importantly, make sure YOU like the color your metal roof. Your metal roof is going to last for decades to come and you should enjoy coming home to it every day.
