Wakefield Bridge Steel Shingles are manufactured from new and recycled steel. Unlike common asphalt shingles made from fossil fuels, they are not subject to the fluctuation of world market oil prices. Unlike discarded asphalt shingles clogging our landfill sites, they are entirely recyclable. Wakefield Bridge Steel Shingles are a 29GA Cold Rolled Steel Core protected by their proven oven-baked PVDF paint system with Kynar 500® resin and the most advanced “Cool Roof®” solar reflection technology ensuring exceptional protection from solar radiation and reducing the cost of summer air-conditioning. Wakefield Bridge Steel Shingles are at least 60 percent lighter than asphalt shingles, concrete and clay tiles, cedar shakes and slate roofing. They are more resistant than all of them with the exception of heavy and costly slate and much stronger than aluminum shingles. Steel Shingles carry the unquestionalble advantages of being long lasting with a 50 year limited warranty. They will not rot, curl, crack, break, chip, peel or perforate under normal use and minimum maintenance.
