Is Metal Roofing Right for Your Home in Erie PA?

For so long metal roofing has been associated with a zinc sheet tacked to shed roofs or as a fancy finish on architect-designed house. Metal roofing has come a long way and there are now some terrific options available.

Types of Metal Roofing Materials

The type of metal for your roof is a major consideration in terms of look and cost. One of the more affordable options available is Aluminum and is good value for money due to its durability and longevity whilst Galvanized steel has a proven long life. Zinc is always an option and is far more attractive than the shed roof sheet but there are also some different choices to think on including copper and stainless steel. 

Metal Shake is a style that has the look of authentic wood which comes in a variety of finishes and is naturally longer lasting than the wood it is mimicking. Metals with a faux stone finish are also available.

In addition to the variety of metals you have a wide range of design options for your metal roof. There is no longer a limit to corrugated sheets, there's now a wide range of various types of paneling for metal, including plain, ribbed and snap locking, and they usually have the option of either visible or non-visible fixing.
