Steel Roofing And Cladding

Steel is a malleable roofing material that is flexible and easy to use in combination with a wide variety of building materials. It is often used as an alternative to zinc, as it is more affordable.

Pros

Easy to use in the construction of roofs and cladding. Steel is incredibly durable and offers a lot in terms of longevity. Steel roofing requires little to no maintenance and it is more affordable than zinc.

In addition to all these cons steel is incredibly strong, and is often used by architects because of the visual appeal that they add to a structure.

Cons

Steel tends to be a poor barrier of outside noise. It is also not an energy efficient roofing material. Steel is a poor thermal insulator, which means that you may have to rely on indoor temperature control.

Lead Roofing and Cladding

Since extraction of lead was always relatively easy, it is one of the oldest roofing materials available today. Sand cast lead is ideal for use in the restoration of the roofs of historical buildings and churches.

As an alternative for mass production, milled lead is also popular in the roofing of modern residential and commercial buildings. Machine cast lead is also widely used today in the construction of roofs.

Pros

Lead is incredibly durable and has a lifespan of more than 60 years. There are also buildings today with lead roofs that are older than 100 years.

Lead roofs are also flexible, which adds to their durability. Environmentally conscious homeowners may also prefer lead as it is completely recyclable after being retired as a roof. In addition, lead is also resistant to corrosion and fires. Lead, especially machine cast lead, is more affordable than other roofing alternatives.

Cons

Lead is an extremely toxic substance. As it breaks down over time, it can pollute the water in its environment. It is also a metal that is in low supply. This is because it has been used extensively in the past in the construction of homes.

Another big drawback of lead is that it is probably the heaviest roofing material available, which means that your roofing structure needs sufficient strength.
