Thinking about a metal roof?
Here’s what you need to know
If you’re installing a new roof on your home, you have a wide variety of materials to choose from, including metal, asphalt shingles, and natural slate. Many homeowners select metal for its durability and easy maintenance. However, there are three distinct types of metal frequently used for residential roofing, each with its own benefits and drawbacks.
Steel. Galvanized steel and weathering steel are the two most popular choice for steel roofs. Galvanized is coated with zinc to inhibit corrosion. Weathering steel uses a mixture of aluminum and zinc prevent corrosion. Galvanized steel is one of the more affordable metals but must be installed properly to give it a longer lifespan.
Zinc. Although it is a major component in galvanized steel, Zinc can is also a roofing material on its own. One of the benefits of Zinc is its ability to self-heal, with scratches filling in on their own. Environmentally friendly, most zinc roofing is made from recycled material. Zinc roofs also chalk, leaving a residue that many homeowners find unattractive.
