Metal Roofing Alternatives

At Piedmont, we often recommend metal roofing systems for their longevity and performance. But we also understand that metal isn’t right for every customer.

In situations where metal roofing isn’t an option, installing roofing shingles and slate roofing systems can be a viable alternative.

Flat and Low-Incline Roofing Shingles

Working with a commercial building with a flat roof or low incline? It is possible to use roofing shingles, but it is vital that an experienced contractor installs your new roof. Your gutter and spouting system must draw water and snow off of your roof to prevent damage.


Installing a metal roof saves money over time through energy efficiency, but the initial investment is higher than the cost of a new shingle roof. That can make metal cost-prohibitive for a small number of customers.

We understand that your money and how you spend it matters. You want results without overspending. That’s why every quote we draw up considers not only the appearance and performance of your home, but your budget, too.

For tight budgets, we often recommend asphalt shingles. A new asphalt shingle roof has a lifespan of approximately 25 years--not quite as long as a metal roof, but nearly on par with other roofing systems.

Once-yearly maintenance calls with Piedmont Roofing ward off early failures, cracks, and shingle loss. Because roofing shingles and slate roofing systems go on shingle-by-shingle, tile-by-tile, repairs are often as simple as replacing the broken section and resealing your roof.

Stately Class and Beauty

When appearance is vital, slate roofing adds an exquisite old-world touch that’s simply unparalleled by any other roofing system. It blends beautifully with European exteriors and matches effortlessly to brickwork for a cohesive look that’s smart and rugged, too.

Though a slate roofing system is slightly more expensive than shingles, slate outpaces nearly every other roof in longevity. Depending on the type of slate used, you can expect your new roof to last for up to 150 years with only minimal repairs and maintenance.
