Building with Ironwood Shingles
Before building an Ironwood Shingle Roof on either a custom-built or prefabricated structure, battens must initially be installed, and the shingles attached one by one. This process can be completed quickly and efficiently by a professional roofer, or by a DIY enthusiast following our instruction guide, making it a cost-effective, long-lasting option.
Ironwood Shingles are best installed on a pitched roof (recommended minimum 30 degrees).
