Years ago, the only metal roofing available was corrugated GI sheets. They were the favored roofing material for barns, outbuildings, warehouses, etc. but rarely was the material used for private residences. This is no longer the case; a clear sign that homeowners and builders understand the benefits of metal roofing is the dramatic increase in use.
The last 20 years has seen a completely new genre of metal roofs, both from a material and an appearance point of view. Metal roofs today are very different from tin roofs of yesterday; they answer all the demands of conscientious homeowners who are concerned about good looks, fire resistance, durability and more.
The benefits of metal roofing:
Metal roofing is rapidly becoming a favorite roofing material; it resists fire, is extremely durable and long-lasting, and is quick to install. Metal roof panels are not heavy and awkward. Instead, they are surprisingly light; they reflect heat from the sun, which reduces the cost of air conditioning.
Although metal roofing can be made from copper and other exotic materials, the primary materials are aluminum and steel. Aluminum and steel metal roofing is the practical choice as these materials are economical, durable, and can be painted if necessary as the roof ages. Although aluminum is slightly more expensive than steel, aluminum will not corrode.
