There are several different types of metal used for roofing. The most common, though, is galvanized steel because it is extremely durable, easy to manufacture and will stand up to the elements. Copper is used because of the aesthetic value but it requires a bit more maintenance. A special kind of paint is used to cover most metal roofs because it can also work like a protective sealant. The metal comes in sheets so the weight is manageable for installation. Industrial-strength fasteners are used to keep the sheets in place for many years.
There are a few drawbacks to having metal roofs but they are usually manageable. The biggest thing is to keep your metal roof regularly inspected for rust and damage.
