The terms “tin roofing” and “metal roofing” have often been used interchangeably. However, traditional tin roofing, which dates back for centuries, has been replaced today by high-quality steel. Unlike the cheap zinc-based material of old, 21st-century metal roofers install attractive, long-lasting roofs which last.
The History of the Tin Roof
Initially, industrial manufacturers used tin for canning. Eventually, during wartime and economic depression, homeowners started to flatten out the metal as a roofing material out of necessity. The cheap metal provided some protection but was noisy and corroded noticeably over time.
Throughout the country, old corroded metal roofs remain on century-old barns and historic buildings. The corrugated metal eventually corrodes, leading to leaks, unsightly holes, and eventual serious structural damage. For that reason, tin has been discontinued as a viable roofing option.
Tin roofing is not today's innovative energy-efficient metal roofing. Today metal roofers provide 21st-century homeowners with a high-quality material that provides superior cooling, durability, and strength. No matter the climate, metal roofing holds firm.
Benefits of Metal Roofs
Why get a metal roof? Unlike old tin roofs or traditional asphalt roofing, today's steel roofs provide a wide range of benefits for residential, commercial, industrial, and agricultural buildings. Here are just some of the reasons to install a new metal roof:
