The Cons of Metal Roof Shingles 

There are very few cons associated with metal roofing solutions for homes. The only possible drawback is that metal roof shingles may cost more than some other alternatives. Then there is also the noisiness factor which would have to be taken into consideration. However, when you look at how much money you will be saving on installation and energy costs, in the long run, you will come to realize that they pay for themselves very quickly indeed!

Choosing the Right Nails

The success of your installation will depend quite heavily on the type of nails that you use. You should only make use of rust-resistant nails, such as hot-dipped galvanized nails. To allow sufficient penetration into the sheathing when installing metal shingles, they should be at least 1-½ to 1-¾ of an inch in length.
