Metal roofs are beautiful and long lasting. We are specialists in helping you choose what will work best with your property.
Copper is used for roofing, wall panels and gutters as well as doors and plumbing. When used for roofing, it changes color over time. But copper is corrosion- and rust-resistant, lightweight, safe, fire-resistant, and does not need maintenance. It is also strong, durable and easy to repair. Due to its cost, copper is typically used only for low slope sections, towers and bay windows as well as roof valleys and flashing.
Stainless steel is preferable in industries where cleanliness and aesthetic are important. However, it is the costliest option due to the multi-step process involved in finishing the end product.
Aluminum is less expensive than stainless steel and copper, but still offers durability and corrosion resistance along with a lightweight and non-toxic quality.
Carbon steel is a blend of iron and carbon, and so there are low, mid and high levels to choose from. Low-carbon steel is strong and more affordable while high-carbon steel weighs less and holds a fine sharp edge. However, carbon steel cannot be welded, nor can it remain flexible in below-freezing temperatures.
Some other metal roofing options are zinc and titanium.
