Stainless steel, copper and zinc roofing have beautiful natural colouring; copper with its eye-catching and distinctive green patina, zinc’s contemporary rich grey and stainless steel’s silver white finish. These metals are also pliable and adaptable which lend themselves to providing ornate, shaped roofing to really make a building stand out.
Depending on the type of property, the weight of the roof can be deciding factor in choosing roofing material as some properties’ structures can only support roofs under a certain weight. Metal roofing, because it is relatively light, is therefore the obvious solution for buildings made of lighter weight materials and also reduces costs as money is saved in providing the roof’s support structure.
Metal roofing is one of the most sustainable roofing options available. They are energy efficient when it comes to cooling, often made from recycled metal, have a long life span which means less materials used for repairs and are cheaper to transport due to their relatively light weight.
