Metal roofing is available in “standing seam” sheets as well as shingles, and comes in a rainbow of colours and finishes. It can be made of aluminum, copper, zinc, or tin. Popular metal choices will vary depending on your local environment, and roofing experts can always advise on the best weather-resistant choice for your home. Metal shingles can be fabricated similarly to asphalt, shake, or round shingles. Metal roofing is incredible at waterproofing against snow and is fireproof. Though it’s one of the most expensive roofing options, the cost pays off in a longer lifespan and longer warranties: 30 to 50 years!
