ABOUT STEEL ROOFING
Steel Roofing is usually made from Galvalume steel. The Galvalume process is a 55% aluminum/zinc coating which greatly reduces corrosion. The Glavalume surface may then be painted into a wide variety of colors.
Steel roofing may be designed to imitate tiles, slates, and shingles. Alternatively it can be supplied as flat standing-seam panels. In both cases the roofing is extremely durable. Steel roofing is capable of withstanding high wind speeds, and is resistant to wild fires. Compared to tiles, slates, or shingles, steell roofing is light, and has a high strength to weight ratio.
The leading steel roofing manufacturers, described below the panel of sponsored links, have comprehensive websites, with information on all aspects of steel roofing, including online catalogs, colors and materials for steel roofing, and care and maintenance of steel roofing.
