In recent years, aluminum roofing has grown quickly in popularity because of the many advantages aluminum roofs offer to homeowners. Aluminum roofs are attractive, durable, energy-efficient, and increasingly affordable. In the past, aluminum was not a popular roofing material for cost reasons and because of concerns about the structural limitations of aluminum. Recent innovations have resolved the structural problems and decreased the cost of aluminum.Aluminum is attractive and malleable and comes in a great variety of roofing types and designs, including standing seam, shake, shingle, tile, and slate.


Aluminum can be formed into individual tiles or shingles or shaped into panels that mimic the look of shingles. It is also lightweight and easy to work with onsite. Once installed, one of aluminum's most important advantages is its great durability. Aluminum roofing does not warp, crack, or burn and, unlike steel, it is extremely corrosion-resistant and does not rust-a significant advantage in areas with a great deal of storms.


Like other types of metal roofing, aluminum is also extremely energy-efficient. Studies have shown that metal roofs absorb 34% less heat than traditional asphalt shingles, reducing air-conditioning costs in summer, and, depending on the part of the country, homeowners who have switched to metal roofing have reported savings of up to 20% on heating and cooling bills. In addition, aluminum roofing is typically made up of 90% recycled material and is itself fully recyclable when necessary, making it one of the most environmentally sound building materials.
