There are a variety of roofing materials, all of which have different benefits and a few comparative disadvantages. When selecting the best roofing type for your home, it is always a good idea to weigh these differences to determine which one works best for the style of your home.
When people used to think of metal roofing, their first thought might be the kind of roofs that go over industrial buildings or maybe even barns. However, metal roofing is also a popular residential roofing type. There are several materials used in metal roofing, including corrugated steel and aluminum, zinc, and silicon coated steel. Metal tiles or shingles are another common variety. Coatings are applied to accomplish things like waterproofing or combating rust.
Standing seamed roofing is a type of sheet metal. It’s made of flat metals sheets and is most often used for large, uniform roofs. Standing seam means that the material self-seals to reduce water intake. The seams are raised instead of laying flat against the roof. Other kinds have flatter or more flush-looking seams.
