Metal roofs feature materials such as copper, galvanized steel, terne (tin) metal and aluminum. These roofs are becoming a more popular roofing choice, especially in coastal areas where homeowners appreciate the durability and protection that metal roofs offer. Metal roofs are designed to last for several generations. As metal roofs age, they can be maintained and coated to increase their lifespan.
Some metals, including copper, stainless steel, and zinc, are naturally weathering materials that will change appearance over time. Other types of metal, including steel and aluminum, are coated with a silicon polyester Kynar coating that protect the metal from rust and provides an attractive, long-lasting finish.
