Metal Roofing

Steel, aluminum, or copper are typically used to make residential metal roofing. Metal roofing has a far longer lifespan than conventional shingle roofing, despite the fact that this does make it more expensive. Rolls of 24- or 26-gauge steel sheets are given a metallic coating to prevent rust, followed by a baked-on paint finish, in order to get them ready for installation. This paint finish can be altered to a hue that complements the style of your home overall. Products made of steel for roofing are covered with either zinc (galvanized) or an alloy of zinc and aluminum. The coatings come in a variety of thicknesses; the thicker the coating, the longer its life and the more expensive it is.
