Aluminum roofing

Which type of roofing works best for your project? Metal roofers have a wide selection of quality materials to choose. Steel and aluminum remain the most popular types of metal roofing options. Before deciding which type of metal works best for you, know the pros and cons of aluminum and steel. If you have questions, feel free to contact the metal roofing pros at London Eco-Metal. Our talented team will be happy to answer your important questions.

Pros and Cons of Aluminum Roofing
Aluminum roofs have superior corrosion resistance, making them popular in coastal regions. Some of the critical benefits of aluminum roofing include:

  • Resistant to severe corrosion
  • Easy to work with on-site
  • Easy to install
  • Lightest metal option for roofing
  • Stores less heat
  • Cools quickly
  • Ideal for hurricane-prone areas
  • Energy efficient
  • Can be installed over an older roof
  • Sustainability
  • Resistant to seawater
  • Affordable pricing

What are some of the drawbacks of aluminum? Aluminum does not age well. Aesthetically, over time it will require regular maintenance. Aluminum roofs require protective paint. Additionally, aluminum does not have a Class-A fire rating. However, metal roofers can add sheathing and underlayment to achieve a better fire-rating.

Pros and Cons of Steel Roofing
London Eco-Metal provides innovative steel roofing options for commercial, residential, and industrial buildings. Galvanized steel provides a strong, long-lasting option. Metal roofing requires much less maintenance and replacement than traditional roofing. In the 21st century, sustainability and energy efficiency save thousands of dollars. Find the right metal for you. What are the benefits of steel roofing?

While there are few negatives to steel roofing, some projects benefit from aluminum roofing. In general, steel roofing costs can be the same or slightly higher than aluminum roof costs. However, metal roof costs typically vary based on several factors like customization, coating, insulation, and other options.
