Vail Metal Shingles

Write a review of Vail shingles


Vail Metal Systems is a Colorado-based company that makes metal shingles called the Riva Series. These shingles are available in either 16-ounce solid copper (called the Riva Classic) or 26-gauge coated Galvalume steel (a corrosion-resistant galvanized steel shingle called the Riva Select). The Vail metal shingles are crafted from a single metal shingle panel that is folded to give the appearance of several dimensional shingles.

Steel shingles have a baked-on paint finish in a selection of 25 different colors. Copper shingles are available in the natural metallic finish, which changes in appearance as the shingles age, taking on a warm patina.

Vail metal shingles are approximately 30 times lighter than concrete roof tiles.

Underwriter Laboratories has given the Vail shingles a Class A fire resistance rating as well as a 110-mph wind resistance. The Riva Series (Vail Titan Select) has attained the Metro-Dade County [Florida] Product Control Approval.


Vail Metal Systems was established by custom roofing contractors that wanted to meet the needs of customers in Colorado's Rocky Mountain property owners. These owners experienced extreme ice and snow loads upon their roofs, but needed roofing that not only were strong enough to handle that but also met aesthetic codes. The shingles are formed in a single square sheet, making it easy for roofing contractors to estimate the amount of roofing needed.

Vail Metal Systems shingles were marketed by Owens Corning under their MiraVista Designer Metals series until 2000. As of 2004, Custom-Bilt Metals began marketing Vail Metal Systems as Vail Majestic Copper and Vail Titan Select.


Both metal shingles carry a 50-year full warranty that can be transferred one time. The paint on the metal shingles is guaranteed not to chip, peel, or fade for 30 years.

Review your product warranty carefully to make sure you understand the terms.
