Metal siding Looks like stone

Consider stone-coated metal shingles for a traditional look

Stone Veneer Siding

Want the benefits of metal roofing but are unwilling to give up the style of a traditional roof? The days of being stuck between a rock and a hard place are now over thanks to metal shingle roofing.

If you're not a fan of the stark lines that come with standing seam metal roofing, worry not! DECRA's stone-coated steel shingles gives you myriad options to choose from. It won't be the logistics that will be the primary problem. With so many options, you'll have trouble picking your favorite one!

Figure out texture
When you're choosing from metal shingles, consider the overall texture of the roofing. After all, contractors will be laying down shingles of the same overall color scheme, size and shape all over the roof, so figure out what kind of texture you'd like to feature. Passersby will be seeing your new roof from ground level, whereas neighbors may be admiring it from the second or third floors of their homes. Consider every perspective when you're selecting your shingles.

DECRA's shingle and shingle plus offer the flattest texture. On the other hand, the tile and villa tile have the most prominent edges. The shake and shake XD are a good in-between for homeowners who want the best of both worlds.

Look at the rest of your home's exterior for a better idea of which texture to select. Offset flat walls with a highly textured roof and vice versa. This will balance out the overall look of your home.

Decide on color
You won't have to worry about choosing a color that'll draw too much attention when you're working with stone-coated tiles. You'll be selecting from a muted natural palette. Between the durability of metal roofing and your beautiful color choices, your home will never go out of style.

If your home has a bright exterior, such as a stark or off-white, you can heighten the effect by applying an equally exciting hue in the roofing. On the other hand, you can offset the brightness by going with a darker shade.

Your roof makes up a large portion of your home's aesthetic, so selecting an entirely new color that's not already featured on the exterior can be risky, but also exciting. Consult with family members and consider the overall color scheme of the other houses on the street before committing to this.

"What to Do When They Don’t Work"

I found this on the web.
My clock doesn’t synchronize at all.
Most WWVB radio controlled clocks work great, as evidenced by the hundreds of thousands of units that have been sold throughout the United States. However, if your radio clock or receiver isn't working, we suggest:
* If your clock uses batteries, check them and replace if necessary.
* If you have a desk top unit, try rotating it 90 degrees. If you have a wall clock try mounting it on a wall perpendicular to the one it is currently on (e.g. if it is on a north-south wall try an east-west wall)

    I live in the north side of Houston around the Aldine area and I am looking for a CD record store. I'm interested in purchasing Extreme Metal and Rock music so if you know any store that sells that please let me know. But it can't be too far away from where I'm at. Thank you.
