Red shingle roof in Carolinas

The Ormand House in Kings Mountain, NC, project illustrates restoration details such as the following:

New metal shingles combined with old ones

Owners of old shingle roofs sometimes wonder if old shingles can be combined with new.  The answer is:  carefully.

The modern red metal shingles are a different size than the traditional ones.  As you can imagine, for isolated repairs, perhaps due to hail damage, this difference in size presents a challenge to an installer.

Also the Berridge shingles are manufactured with a different metal alloy compared to the stronger, thicker original roofing.

But still combinations can work.  This project represents one technique due to placement and finishing.
