Galvalume Metal Roofing
Galvalume roofing material combines three of the most important metals used in roofing today, steel, aluminum, and zinc. Manufacturers begin with a carbon steel base sheet, which is then continuously hot-dipped with aluminum and zinc alloys until it reaches a coating consisting of 55% aluminum, 43.4% zinc, and 1.6% silicon over the base metal to protect it from the elements. This system allows for one material to have some of the best characteristics of each included metal, making it one of the fastest-growing materials in today’s metal roofing market.
Aluminum Metal Roofing
Aluminum is one of the most predominant and popular metals in the world, mainly because of its use in the canned beverage industry. But aluminum, the third most abundant metal on Earth, spans way beyond this scope and makes a great material for the metal roofing industry, especially for projects in sea and saltwater environments. Not only does aluminum stand up to extremely harsh weather conditions, but it’s one of the most sustainable metals in the world, which is why it’s become such a popular roofing choice for structures.
Zinc Metal Roofing
For residential homeowners and business owners looking for a metal roofing material made to stand the test of time, zinc is always a great option. Among contractors and architects, zinc’s popularity in metal roofing projects has experienced a steady increase in Canada because of its ease of use, immunity to corrosion, and other sustainable features.
