Paradigm Shingles Company Overview
Paradigm Shingles, Inc., a subsidiary of Vulcan Supply Corporation, was created to manufacture and distribute Bennington brand copper shingles. These beautiful metal shingles are made under license from Revere Copper Products, Inc. (the company founded by Paul Revere 200 years ago). Paradigm’s shingles are proudly “Made in USA” in their Vermont facility.
Paradigm’s solid copper Bennington shingles carry a 50-year Lifetime warranty. They won’t rot or mildew, split or curl, and have no applied to surface to peel off over time. They carry a Class-A Fire Rating. Realistically, only installation error might lead to shingle failure. Contact the company for complete coverage details.
Paradigm’s Bennington brand shingles can be installed on any typical roof style, residential or commercial. They’re formed of solid, not plated, copper and weather over time to the familiar verdigris patina. Weighing only about 140 pounds per square foot, they can out-perform even high-end asphalt-based shingles at three times that weight. Their subdued design and texture blend perfectly with new construction or historic buildings in urban or rural settings. Paradigm makes or supplies all required trim and accessory copper fittings.
Paradigm Shingles Review:
Shingle Cost: Copper shingles from Paradigm compare favorably with top-line architectural asphalt shingles, and are substantially less expensive than classic materials like slate or clay tile. Installation costs are similar to standard shingles.
Rating: 8 out of 10.
Shingle Installation: Metal shingles can be easy to install, requiring only basic carpentry skills and tools. No special roof deck construction is needed. Copper roofs are walkable, or use staging for steeper pitches.
Rating: 9 out of 10.
Shingle Durability: Solid copper shingles are a lifetime investment requiring only minimal maintenance. They’ve been tested to withstand gale force winds and driving rain. Even damage from hail or fallen objects merely mars the surface; the familiar pale green patina re-forms to hide blemishes over time. Bennington brand roofing is suitable for a wide range of climate extremes.
Rating: 9 out of 10
Shingle Aesthetics: A roof shingled with Paradigm’s pure copper roofing presents a classic appeal, suitable for a broad range of architectural styles. Copper weathers over time to a muted hue that blends well with most classic colors. Since these are not a clad product, no color choices are offered.
Rating: 7 of 10
Shingle Warranty: Paradigm Shingles, Inc. provides a 50-year Lifetime warranty. Ease of installation helps avoid concerns about installer error. Copper shingle roofing systems should last as long as the building they protect.
Rating: 9 out of 10.
Paradigm’s pure copper roof shingles, produced under license from Revere Copper Products, Inc. offer a classic lifetime roof at a fraction of the cost and weight of other best-quality roofing systems. A weathered copper roof looks beautiful on everything from a backwoods cabin to a downtown courthouse. 100% recyclable, copper is an ultimate “green” roof, both literally and figuratively.
