Why Metal Roofing?
Metal Roofing, like Copper, has played a significant role in architecture for thousands of years. The Romans used copper as roof covering for the Pantheon. Centuries later, copper and its alloys were integral in European medieval architecture.
The copper roof of St. Mary’s Cathedral, Hildesheim, survives to this day. Also the roof at Kronborg. It is one of northern Europe’s most important Renaissance castles. It was installed in the 1585 A.D. The copper on the tower was renovated in 2009.
Earlier metal roofing was a sheeting in the form of corrugated galvanized steel and still find applications today in parts of the developing world.

It has been proven that metal roofs do not increase lightning strikes. Also if lightning were to ever strike a person’s roof, the metal disperses the electricity throughout the structure safely. In fact, it would be safer for a metal roof to be struck by lightning. This is due to not being flammable or combustible. This also lowers the risk of a fire.
Metal roofing can be used for residential and commercial buildings. The same material used for metal roofs can be used for siding as well. Metal roofing can also be applied over an existing roof. The possibilities are endless.
