Four Most Common Types Of Roofing
Aluminum is the most basic type of metal roof material. It’s resistant to corrosion and typically very strong. However, it’s not the ideal choice for areas that have high winds, hail or tough environmental conditions.
For centuries, copper roofing has been used all over the world. These roofs are completely recyclable, but they’re a soft metal – so although they minimize noise, they’re more susceptible to hail damage and storm damage.
An alloy made from iron and other elements, steel is one of the most common types of roofing materials on commercial structures. It’s available in several varieties, including galvanized, galvalume, & weathering steel.
Zinc is an incredibly durable and it uses its patina to heal scratches over time, and can last upwards of a century. It’s ideal for commercial buildings, but requires cleaning and maintenance because it “chalks” over time.
Metal Roofing Methods
Metal Roof Panels
Metal roof panels are available in several materials, from steel to aluminum. Generally, these types of roofs interlock to seal out moisture and protect a home or business.
Corrugated roofing, which is commonly seen on commercial buildings, is durable and lightweight. It’s typically available in copper, aluminum and stainless steel, and it can be a cost-effective method.
The term Tin Roofing is a misnomer. Tin isn’t actually used in roofing – but the name stuck from the 1800s, when homesteaders hammered down canning materials to replace damaged, broken or worn shingles. When you hear someone talk about a tin roof, they’re really referring to one made from aluminum, copper, steel or zinc.
