Metal roofing can refer to aluminum or copper roofing, but might be most widely associated with steel roofing. Metal roofing has been used for centuries in Europe, but steel roofing for residential purposes is just starting to become popular in the United States. Steel roofing is perfect for any construction project: commercial, industrial, residential, or agricultural. Residential steel roofing is ideal because of its longevity and versatility; steel roofing can give the appearance of other roofing materials such as wood, ceramic tile, or slate.

Steel roofs are more durable than ever before. Residential steel roofing is galvanized, which comes with a Zinc coating to help protect your roofing system homeowners from corrosion and rust. Galvanized steel roofing is strong and inexpensive. Galvanized steel offers great protection against ice, snow, wind, and rain. Metal roofing is far superior to fiberglass roofing or rubber roofing when it comes to at protecting your home from the elements. Even the best asphalt roofing will only last for 20 years. Although, you can expect steel roofing to last for 50 years and beyond. Unlike organic roofs, steel roofing is completely resistant to mildew, rotting, and water damage.

Steel roofing comes in a variety of styles from steel shingles to corrugated steel roofing. Galvanized steel roofing is available painted or with bare finishes. For added style, stone coated steel roofing has become popular. Stone coated steel is made with an acrylic, stone chip finish. These steel panels or shingles have a nice earthen-tone or Mediterranean flair. Corrugated roofing can add additional strength, or can be used to emulate a country style.

Standing seam metal roofing is a trendy choice for steel roofings. Standing seam roofing uses metal fasteners to connect the steel panels, but these can be difficult to line up. It’s best that a roofing contractor installs these steel panels to ensure the maximum level of protection.
