These stamped diamond-pattern metal shingles for residential and commercial roofing projects are corrosion resistant and durable, and can be installed over existing asphalt shingles, according to the maker. The watertight design includes a side lock, which permits them to be installed without soldering and that allows for thermal contraction and expansion.

The company's architectural stainless steel is coated with its zinc-tin alloy that is reactive to oxygen in the atmosphere, forming an attractive gray surface oxide, officials said.
