Advanta®, a simulated dimensional metal shingle, is easily installed from eave to ridge with concealed fasteners. The metal shingle has prepunched direct fastening points with a four-way interlock for weathertightness. It is lightweight, allowing for installation over an existing roof without the need for tear-off and disposal*. Typical applications for Advanta® are roofs on either commercial or residential buildings. It also is suitable for walls and mansards.
