In a nutshell, metal roofs are made of durable metal pieces or tiles characterized by high resistance, impermeability and longevity. Metal reflects heat away from the building, is lightweight, and comes in a variety of shapes, colors and types.
Material options for your metal roofing project include aluminum, copper, and steel. Steel roofing comes in sheets of 24 to 26-gauge and can also be coated to the end-users specifications. Coatings help to prevent rust occurring on the steel sheets. The coatings are comprised of zinc or a combination of zinc and aluminum. This mixture, galvalume will best protect your steel roof.
