Diamond Shaped Roof Shingles - The Assembly

At Metal Roof Network, we specialize in copper as a material and diamond shaped shingles as a profile. It's what has set us apart from other roofing companies, and we're fortunate to have worked on a number of exciting and interesting projects that combine our two specialties. Often, we're asked for details about our diamond shingles. It can be difficult to accurately describe some of the attributes of this distinctive profile to people who aren't already familiar with metal roofing systems, and we tend to default to sharing the features alone. If you're interested in developing a better understanding of the assembly of diamond shaped roof shingles, this post is for you.

Which Roof Profile Reduces Roof Maintenance?

This is a really great question! Roof maintenance, like any homeowner chore, can help extend the lifespan and performance of your roof, and it's a must with certain roofing materials. Metal roofing isn't usually one of them, and that's especially true with diamond profiles - which just happens to be signature line at Metal Roof Network. We offer our diamond roofing in several different metals, and every project we've had the pleasure of being involved in has resulted in beautiful roofs. But there's more to diamond roofing than just aesthetics, particularly in terms of roof maintenance.

How Diamond Roofing Can REDUCE Roof Maintenance - Really!

We’ve made our diamond shaped metal roof products our signature line and we offer diamond shaped products in more types of metals than anyone else in the business.
