Ever wonder about the measurement history of roofing shingles? We didn’t think so.
We hadn’t really wondered much about it, either, until Pawel’s father and creator of Archer Roofing decided to share it with us.
Metric shingles are a few inches bigger, therefore fewer shingles were required in the installation of a roof surface and they were more popular with installers. Currently in Canada, most shingles are produced in metric sizes but some manufacturers (like IKO) produce shingles in imperial sizes.
