A metal roof is a great option when considering roofing materials, and there are numerous benefits associated with owning a metal roof. One of the greatest advantages perhaps is that there are so many types of metal roofing materials, including metal, shingle/slate, metal tile, metal shake, vertical panels and natural metals. Choose from steel, aluminum, copper, zinc and titanium.
Consider your options:
- Metal Shingle/Slate is able to create the distinctive look of smooth and uniform slate tiles at a great price.
- Metal Tiles offer a dual benefit: the graceful curves of classic tile, with the strength and lightness that only comes with stone-coated steel.
- Metal Shake offers the authentic look of wood, while offering the advantage of being able to choose from a wide range of colors, and being more durable than wood, metal shake will last longer.
- Vertical Panel Tiles make a great choice for commercial, industrial and farm buildings, as well as quaint homes where the homeowner may prefer the look of panels.
- Natural metal panels. These are perfect for urban districts and historical settings, as well, offering the environmentally-friendly advantage of being 100% recyclable.
