Aluminium is increasingly valued as a roofing material for many reasons. Aluminium is attractive and malleable and comes in a great variety of roofing types and designs, including standing seam, shake, shingle, tile, and slate. In many parts of the country, aluminium is offered in a wider range of gauges than steel. Aluminium 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, reducing labour costs for installation. Once installed, one of aluminium’s most important advantages is its great durability. Aluminium roofing does not warp, crack, or burn.
