In the steamy summer months, a metal roof cools down quicker at night. That lets the whole house cool off faster. Aside from the comfort advantage, it’s also less work for your air conditioner, less to pay the power company.
A metal roof is lighter than shingles, shakes, concrete or tile. So it’s easier for the roof structure to carry. And, if you’re replacing an older roof, metal’s light weight often means you won’t have to rip off the old one before putting up the new.
Metal’s made to last. Most metal roofs come with warranties up to 30 or even 50 years.
Corrugated Metal Roofing
Corrugated roofing is the best metal roof for residential homes and is often called the “original” metal roof, with uses dating back to the 1800’s. This type of metal roofing is either galvanized or made from galvalume, stainless steel, or aluminum. Galvanized roof panels on corrugated roofing are the most common, as they give houses and commercial buildings that elegant style.
Corrugated galvanized roofing has gained traction and popularity over the years since it offers the most protection from corrosion types of metal roofing systemsand rust. The wavy construction on this type of metal roofing allows for added strength so that they are more durable in any weather.
This metal roofing is available in copper, aluminum, and stainless steel, all of which differ in cost and longevity.

Architectural standing seam roofing is the best type of metal roof for steep-sloped roofing. Depending on the design, the panels are either mechanically seamed or snapped together. And, unlike r-panel roofing, architectural roofing requires materials to be laid down beforehand.
