When considering metal roofing, their are a number of aspects of the metal used that need to be thought about. The first aspect is of course the type of metal that can be used. Copper has long been used for roofing but other metals that can be considered are aluminium, steel, stainless steel and zinc alloys. Steel is a widespread choice and when treated with zinc, the roof becomes rust and corrosion resistant and extremely durable lasting anything from 50 years upwards. Stainless steel is of course another option that is naturally rust and corrosion resistant but comes at a higher cost. A simple coating on stainless steel can give your roof a fantastic matte grey finish. Copper was one of the original metals used on house roofs but it is costly. A well maintained copper roof has unique patterning that can really set your home apart from your neighbors.
There are various finishing options for a metal roof. Once coated with a protective layer, metal roofs can be left unfinished and with time a weathered, unique look will appear. Alternatively if galvanized metal is used then a factory applied paint layer can be used. Thirdly, stone chips or epoxy or ceramic granules can be used to give a more textured feel to the roof.
Metal roofing typically come in two types, namely metal shingles or shingle panels. These shingles or panels are often used to simulate a wood or asphalt structures and textures. Metal roofs are highly resistant to the elements and deal well with heavy rain. Water tightness is guaranteed with good workmanship and the properties of metal and steeped roofs ensure water runs off easily.
Given the various colors and styles available for converting the look of the metal base, metal is proving very popular and is certainly an option worth considering for your home. Its durability is second to non and can easily last for decades with minimum maintenance on a well finished job.
