The world is become more aware of the importance to reduce or eliminate the use of raw materials. Metal roofing’s durability allows for doing just that. Metal roofing is unaffected by the hot-cold/wet-dry weather cycles that break down other materials. Other roofing materials, however, are heavily affected by weather extremes. In addition, metal roofing is known for its ability to hold up against other weather forces—including windstorms, hail, ice, and snow. No other roofing material has greater ability to withstand a wider range of weather conditions. There are many handmade metal roofs still in existence that date back to the 1800s.
