Zinc Metal Roofs

Zinc is considered one of the best premium roofing materials available on the market. Known for its durability and longevity, zinc roofing is a highly resistant material that can withstand extreme weather conditions, including high winds, heavy rain, snow, and even hail.

  • Similar to copper, zinc will patina over time and change color; this also allows the material to develop a protective layer of zinc carbonate which prevents rusting making it a great option if you live in a coastal area
  • Also like copper, it is considered a “lifetime roof” and will last up to 100 years or longer
  • This metal is a great choice for those looking for a low-maintenance option as it does not require any painting or staining.
  • A zinc roof has the unique ability to be able to self-repair itself. A protective layer formed over the metal, known as hydroxyl carbonate, not only protects the material from chemicals and moisture but also helps to reform the material which makes any scratches or nicks less noticeable over time.
  • Zinc metal roofing is also fire resistant, making it a great option for homes located in areas with a high risk of wildfire.
  • It can be used on almost any type of roof even including both pitched and flat roofs.
  • Zinc roofs are also a great choice for homeowners looking for an energy-efficient option since it is a naturally reflective metal that can help keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
  • Additionally, this metal is a great option for those looking for an eco-friendly material as it is 100% recyclable and non-toxic and does not harm the environment.
  • It is very lightweight which makes for easier transportation and installation.
  • This roofing system is very versatile for it can be formed into various shapes and sizes, making it suitable for a wide range of architectural styles. It also comes in a variety of colors, so homeowners can choose a finish that complements their home’s aesthetic.

While zinc metal roofing has many advantages, there are also a few disadvantages to consider. One of the main disadvantages is the cost. This material is generally more expensive than other metal roofing options such as steel or aluminum and it requires specialized installation, which can add to the cost. However, the long lifespan and low maintenance costs of zinc can offset the initial investment over time.

Another disadvantage is that zinc is a relatively soft metal, which means that it can be dented or scratched more easily than other metal roofing materials. However, this is not a significant issue as the natural patina that forms on the surface of zinc metal roofs can mask minor dents or scratches.

Zinc roofing has many benefits and is a great option for your next project, but it is important to work with a professional roofing contractor like us that has the necessary skills in working with this material and to ensure that your roof is properly installed and maintained.
