Since metal roofing materials tend to be inexpensive metals such as aluminium, steel, copper or zinc it is an extremely cost effective roofing material. Metal roofing is durable in cold weather and are 100% recyclable.
In a domestic setting the metal roof’s ability to reflect the heat from the sun offers homeowners an advantage in terms of reduced costs for cooling. In case further encouragement was needed, the government is currently offering funding for tax credits for the installation of metal roofing.
In both commercial and domestic settings the use of a metal roof can create an interesting architectural feature due to the scope of colours and tones available.
