Monday, September 19th, 2016 by Stephen Campbell

Your roof plays an important role in ensuring that your home withstands the onslaught of the elements. Your home just won't be one without it. If you're looking to install a new system or replace an aging one, the sheer number of options in today's market may leave you confused. You'll find all sorts of roofing materials, from traditional shingles to newer metal offerings.

Metal Roofing

Metal used to be the black sheep of the roofing world for a variety of reasons. With current developments in technology; however, there hasn't been a better time to consider switching to metal roofing. Let Patriot Roofing, your leading provider of roofing in Tacoma, WA, share the top reasons to switch to MetalWorks® Stonecrest® Slate Steel Shingles by TAMKO®.

Energy Efficiency

Metal roofing is remarkably energy-efficient. Unlike traditional roofing materials, metal roofs reflect solar energy away from your home, potentially reducing energy consumption for cooling. Moreover, choosing the right color increases the amount of solar energy reflected, which can lead to even more savings. StoneCrest Slate Steel Shingles use ENERGY STAR®-qualified colors, so practicality doesn't have to come at the cost of aesthetics.

All MetalWorks Steel Shingles are also rated by the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC), a third-party ratings board. If you're looking for the coolest Tacoma roofing, MetalWorks StoneCrest Slate Steel Shingles are your best options.


Metal roofing is built to last. MetalWorks StoneCrest Slate Steel Shingles from TAMKO feature steel galvanized with zinc, which allows them to resist deterioration and the constant onslaught of the elements.

Ease of Installation

If you're looking to replace an existing asphalt roofing system, StoneCrest shingles are right up your alley. They can be installed over existing asphalt shingles, saving you money in removal and disposal costs. They also require fewer shingles and fasteners per square, which save you even more money in the long run.

With the recent advances in roofing technology, metal roofing has become an even more viable option for homeowners to consider. If you're exploring your options for roofing in Tacoma, give us a call at 223-448-8222 and we'll help guide you.
