Stone-coated steel roofing Shingle Waconia, MN
The Waconia Moravian Church in Waconia, MN had a large section of the church with a faulty asphalt shingle existing. They had a large addition as well as a classroom area that the roofing still has life left in it. This became a perfect candidate for the stone-coated steel shingle by Metro. Lifetime Shingles was able to put together a project package that allowed the church to only replace sections of the church at a time. They opted to install the walnut shingle; as it was close in color and style to shingles they wanted to save on parts of the church.
Lifetime Shingles installed the shingles with a special combination of stone-coated head wall flashing, & stone-coated fascia metals to beautifully flash all roof to wall intersections against the brick. Smart jacks & sleeves are installed on the plumbing vents. The valleys are completed with the 2-piece Smart valley system designed by Metro for the shingle product. All rake edges have a stone-coated channel for the cut edges of the shingles to slide into out of sight. Being walnut in color this shingle project was able to utilize the Cottage Shingle cap by Metro. We chose to install this roof system with 1” screws in the field and 2” on the caps.
Most importantly of all every panel on this roof was cut with shear or snips. Cutting the panels this way pinches all the coatings together as it cuts to protect all cut edges. Lifetime Shingles never uses a grinder or high-speed rotating blades to cut the stone-coated steel products. Cutting with a high-speed rotating blade splinters all of layers of coatings the steel needs to fight the weather. Another damaging factor of using high-speed blades is the heat they create. The heating of the panel can also adversely affect the performance of the coatings on the stone-coated steel shingles.
