Metal roofing is common in commercial properties. Durable and long-lasting, metal roofing can survive for decades, even through fire, high winds, and water. Metal roofing is quick to install, meaning that installation is less costly, saving contractors on labor and homeowners on labor costs. While the overall cost is still higher than some other kinds of roofing, it is often well worth the investment when considering how long it lasts. Unlike wooden roofing, metal roofing will not crack or warp when exposed to challenging weather like snow or hail. The most popular types of metal used in roofing include copper, galvanized steel, tin, zinc, and aluminum.
