Many types of metal roofs have been used around the world for a long time. They are gaining in popularity here in the United States. Metal (or steel) roofs last a long time and withstand many different types of climates and weather.

According to Construction Magnet, “…in the 3rd Century B.C., copper roof shingles were installed on top of the Loha Maha Paya Temple in Sri Lanka, and the Romans used copper as roof covering for the Pantheon in 27 B.C. Later, copper and its alloys were used in European medieval architecture. Many manufacturers and suppliers in the industry have partnerships and do much of their business internationally, as well as in the states.
