The rich History of Metal shingles

Metal Shingle Roofs is less common than rib panel or standing seam metal, but it's certainly not a new concept. Metal shingles have been used in America for hundreds of years on many prominent homes, churches, schools, and businesses. In fact, Thomas Jefferson, who was actually a brilliant architect, chose to have a metal shingle installed on his home at Monticello, instead of the more common shake shingles. In Trussville, ALmetal shingle roof installation was used in 1938 for all 300+ houses in the famous Cahaba Homestead Project, with many of those metal roofs still working great.

The Wells/Boyer Family has been one of the most trusted names in residential metal roofing and siding since 1959, when Bob Wells decided to start a small metal siding company in Ocala, FL, after a career a world champion rodeo cowboy. The original name was Baywel Inc, which quickly grew into one of the top metal roofing & siding companies in the Gulf Coast region. In 1963, the expanding company moved it's headquarters to Birmingham, providing a central location from which they could  manage metal roofing projects in Huntsville, Birmingham, and Mobile, AL. Two of Mr. Well's sons, Robert & Robin, eventually followed in his footsteps and continued to focus on metal construction, eventually pioneering the residential metal roofing industry in Alabama, Mississippi, & Florida. Today, Metal Roofing HeadQuarters or "MrHQ", as they're commonly known, is owned & managed Bob Wells' grandsons, Jonathan & Stefan Boyer. They are one of the most recognized residential organizations in North America, with features on 2 different national t.v. shows and a cover story in Roofing Contractor Magazine in 2019 alone. MrHQ was recently ranked by Remodeling Magazine as 1 of America's "Top 100 Firms in Home Improvement". That's a lot of honors for just one busy year, but they're still just a small family business at heart, using the family's tried and true business philosophy that's worked for 60 years of metal roofing success... "Take great care of your employees and customers, and the business will take care of itself."
