Copper is perhaps the oldest type of metal roofing material that has been in use for a very long time and is known to last for over 70 years. In fact it is said that copper is getting better as it ages. Copper is highly expensive and that’s why it is usually used in limited applications such as the the facial coverings of the windows.
Residential Metal Roofing Materials – Steel: This is the most frequently used metal roofing material today. Steel offers a great degree of durability in metal roofing. It is usually protected by a layer of zinc and aluminum alloy, which protects it from rust and corrosion.
In the past, metal roofing was considered as luxury and expensive. Everyone could not afford it as a highly professional contractor was required to install the roof. But nowadays more and more people are fascinated towards doing their home’s roofing themselves.
One must look for dark spots, moldy spots, water trails on plywood or roof decking, and or any cracked or split rafters. This should be done with great care, for one mistake can damage your ceilings or cause significant injury to oneself. After these things have been validated to be okay, then, the next step is to start preparing the roof.
