Explaining How Metal Roofing Materials Work

Metal roofing is becoming increasingly popular because it has a high level of fire resistance. Also, metal roofs are light in weight and reflect UV rays back into the atmosphere, which helps to reduce cooling bills in summer – a nice added bonus. Even though they require professional installation, metal roofs are still quicker and easier to install than conventional ones.

In this article, we’ll briefly explain the different types of metal roofing materials, so grab your hard hat and read on.

  • Steel: This is the most common material. It is sturdy, and experts have spent a great deal of time finding ways to protect it from rusting. Generally, manufacturers use a zinc coating and a sealant, plus heavy-duty paint to protect it from the elements.
  • Stainless Steel: Since it is designed not to rust, stainless steel doesn’t require the additional coatings that steel does. And if you’re keen to change to metal roofing but you don’t want the clinical, cold look of steel, you can choose a coating that will make it look more natural.
  • Aluminum: If you want something that won’t rust and is light in weight, aluminum could be the ideal material. As is the case with stainless steel, you’ll need to have it coated for a more natural look.
  • Copper: This has become a popular option, especially when it is used as an accent on homes and other buildings. Although copper is strikingly attractive, whether it’s an oxidized blue-green patina or a new, shiny red-gold, it’s pretty costly.
  • Alloys: Different alloys can be used as metal roofing materials and, depending on what your needs are, there are different formulations.
