Types Of Metal Roofs

Metal roofs utilize different materials, and steel is a popular choice. Galvalum steel, with added zinc for corrosion prevention. Metalink exclusively employs Galvalume steel in its metal roofs.

Steel

To make roofing material, a zinc layer is added to steel to make galvanized steel. The zinc prevents corrosion or rust from developing on the roof. A more advanced version of galvanized steel is Galvalume steel. Aluminum is added to the zinc layer for even better protection against corrosion. Metalink metal roofs use Galvalume steel.

Aluminum

Roofs made from aluminum are ideal for coastal areas because they resist salt corrosion. As a roofing material, aluminium is durable and lightweight but expensive. 

Copper

Copper is a beautiful roof option. It develops a beautiful patina over time. Roofs made of copper are much quieter than those made with other metals because copper is a soft metal. The drawback is that copper can be easily damaged and is the most expensive type of metal roof.

Different Roof Finishes

Customize your roof’s appearance and performance with appropriate finishes. Metalink offers a range of options:

  • Pre-Painted Finishes: Choose from a palette of vibrant colors for a striking visual appeal.
  • Textured Matte: Explore elegant matte shades like TEKTURA by Metalink for a sophisticated finish.
  • Stone-Coated Finishes: Achieve a beautiful and enduring look with stone-coated finishes.

Choose the Right Type of Metal Roof
