Back in the day, metal roofing was used to cover homes, barns, commercial roofs, factory buildings, and churches before asphalt shingles were even invented. Metal was solid, affordable, and durable roofing material.
Today, metal roofing is enjoying an impressive resurgence in popularity and demand, whether it’s for systems like standing seam, interlocking metal shingles, corrugated metal sheets, or ribbed metal panels.
Corrugated metal panels are often used in commercial and low-end residential applications, but standing seam is becoming a lot more prominent and extremely popular in high-end residential and commercial retrofits and new roof installations.
Both of these systems have their pros and cons that must be considered before deciding which particular system will best suit your needs.
