The Metals in Metal Roofing: What Other Metals Are Available?

In this series on the metals used in metal roofing, we’ve looked at:

  • galvanized steel
  • galvalume steel
  • aluminum
  • copper

What other metals are available for roofing?

There are other metals available for roofing as well including rolled zinc, stainless steel, terne-coated steel, terne-coated stainless, and titanium. Generally, roofs made from these more unusual metals will be architect-specified and will be custom-formed by a fabricator for a particular application. If you have interest in one of these more specialized metals, contact metal roofing manufacturers to check on availability and suitability for your end use.
