Metal Roofing Systems can be made from a variety of metals and alloys including Galvanized steel — hot-dip zinc-galvanized G-90 and G-60 steel (a less expensive, thinner-gauge steel, often used in low-end, lower-cost corrugated and ribbed metal panels), Galvalume steel — zinc and aluminum coated steel (A more expensive and longer lasting coating compared to G-90 steel.), stone-coated steel (G-90 galvanized steel), aluminum, copper, zinc, terne (zinc-tin alloy), and stainless steel.
The downside of galvanized steel (G-90, and especially G-60) is that it can corrode, eventually, especially when exposed to moist, salt-spray environment such as in close proximity to water or salt. This can be however mitigated by coatings and regular maintenance.
Steel is the most frequently used material in both residential and commercial applications, mainly due to its lower cost.
Aluminum is the second most popular material. It is more durable and longer lasting than steel, but only costs a fraction of the price of premium metals, such as copper or zinc. The main drawback of Aluminum is it is much softer than steel
Aluminum is also one of the best metals for areas that are prone to salt exposure.
Copper roofs are the most durable and can last for hundreds of years. However, It is, however, a costly choice, it is for this reason that copper is used as an architectural detail, accents or feature.
