Project of the Month: Homeowner Opts for Metal Shake

Century-old Home Receives New Long-lasting, Maintenance-Free Roof

by Linda Schmid

The client reached out to Cornett Roofing Systems of Franklin, Indiana, to take a look at their 100+ year multi-colored slate roof. Once the roofing company arrived, they learned the slate was beyond repair due to the brittle slates and bad underlayment. The client did not have the budget for a full slate replacement but were still in need of a permanent roof for the building. 

Cornett Roofing introduced them to Modern Metal’s Metal Shake Series and worked with the owners to create a two-toned pattern by using two different steel colors to try to mirror what they originally had. Cornett also added some other accents by using red and white on other areas per the client’s request to keep the historical look as close as possible. 

The client is beyond happy that Cornett Roofing took the time to work within the budget and still give them the look they wanted. The owners feel good about their decision to go with metal due to the longevity and maintenance-free aspect of the roof. MR
