Commercial Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is a common type of material used for commercial roofers. There are quite a few different types of materials that can be used for metal roofing of commercial establishments, including:

  • Tin
  • Steel
  • Zinc
  • Aluminum
  • Copper

All of these different types of metals have their pros and their cons when it comes to roofing. Different factors play into the use of each metal and how it reacts to the environment it is being built in.

Copper Roofing

Copper roofing is a material that have been used for centuries. This is due to its long-lasting lifespan and durability in many environments. Copper roofs are one hundred percent recyclable and can last for over 200 years, making this roofing option a great way to go green and help the environment.

Copper, as a metal, is also very soft. Due to its softness, it is very quiet when it comes to rain or hail from outside. However, also due to its softness, it is prone to more damage from weather conditions like hail and can easily dent in a hailstorm. This is still better than it being punctured, which is much more common in harder metals.

The biggest downside of copper roofing is the cost. Due to its durability and lifespan, the prices to install this metal roofing can be quite high, so make sure you budget appropriately when selected a metal. Another down side of copper is how it expands and contracts depending on the temperature, though this can be controlled with proper shingling and paneling.
