Aluminum metal roofing is designed to appeal to those who want the elegance of conventional roofing products such as shake and tile, but prefer never having to re-roof again. In many cases, this metal roofing can be installed directly over top of an existing roof, saving the costs of tear off and the environmental problems associated with disposal.
