Vicwest's Sumerside steel shingles feature 28-gauge steel with a double embossed finish and a four-way interlocking system that tightens on all four sides, making it less vulnerable to strong winds or heavy snow. Summerside shingles are lightweight, approximately one-third the weight of traditional shingles, and come with color-matched flashing and accessories. In addition to being fireproof, these shingles are made of 100 percent recycled steel. The SuperVic profile includes four main steel ribs that are 3/4 inch in height with stiffening beads on the low side of each rib to add strength and a tight fit, reducing the number of supports and fasteners needed as well as the installation time. UltraVic metal roofing is available in 29-gauge steel and is appropriate for homes, cottages and other backyard structures, such as gazebos.

All Vicwest residential and commercial stone-coated roofing systems carry a limited lifetime warranty. These systems are fire- and hail-resistant and require little or no maintenance, and most styles are wind-resistant up to 120 miles per hour,
