Durable and Stylish Metal Roofing - Alpha Builders: Your Go-to Roofing Solution!

Metal Roofing

Metal roofs offer a durable and low-maintenance roofing option for homeowners. Compared to other roofing materials such as clay tiles and polycarbonate, metal is by far the most durable and safe against the elements. 

One primary concern regarding roofing is how they withstand damage since clay-tiled roofing, although aesthetically pleasing, can get easily damaged by falling branches or debris carried by typhoons. Metal roofing puts these concerns to rest because of how sturdy the material is. 

Suppose you’re also aiming to pass down your home to future generations; the longevity of metal roofing is also one of its strongest suits. Sometimes, unexpected expenses can catch us at awkward times when we really don’t have money to spare; metal roofs eliminate these concerns since they can last for a long time with proper maintenance. 

Advantages of metal Roofing



Metal roofing is highly touted for its durability. It goes without saying that metal can withstand various elements and impacts; that’s why applying this material to your roof is almost a no-brainer.

Metal can also quickly adapt to different situations, be it the extreme heat or extreme amounts of water and wind from typhoons; metal roofing doesn’t buckle or break easily. Another factor that adds to the durability of this type of roof is its ability to withstand fire, making it a perfect addition to your home if longevity is your goal.



Upkeep also tends to dry up our financial well reasonably quickly. To keep our things in tip-top condition, we must constantly subject them to regular maintenance, and to properly maintain them, we should continuously shell out money.

One of the best things about metal roofing is that they are relatively low-maintenance. Things that would cause significant damage to other types of roofs, like clay tiled roofing, will only cause dents to metal roofing. This durability means maintenance usually just involves minor cleaning on the roof's surface and not worrying about breaks or cracks.



With concerns about being eco-friendly on the rise recently, several measures have been made to address the issue. One way you can be eco-friendly is to use metal roofing other than the alternatives.

A metal roof is highly recyclable, which means that the one you use or will be using also comes from recycled materials. This cycle makes metal roofs environmentally friendly when they reach the end of their life cycle since they can just be shredded and repurposed as metal roofs once again.


Aesthetically Pleasing

While everything boils down to personal preference, we cannot deny the visual appeal metal roofing gives off. With a wide variety of metal materials to choose from, like aluminium, copper, zinc, and galvanised steel, you will never run out of options when making your roofs highly personalised.

This fact does not discount the primary purpose of roofs, which is to protect our homes; what it does is add value to your property. We cannot deny that making our homes look good is also essential, and having metal roofing certainly does that job well.

Disadvantages of Metal Roofing



It’s easy to chalk the cost as one of the disadvantages of metal roofs, but its durability more than makes up for it. Still, it’s hard to deny that metal roof in Singapore are expensive since they can cost three times more than your traditional roofing materials.



Metal is a material known for making a lot of noise, so if you decide to get metal roof in Singapore, you must be prepared to endure the noise. Some metal materials for roofing have made strides in addressing this issue, so while they can still be pretty noisy, these new types are much better than the older ones in terms of muffling sounds.


Susceptible to Dents

While metal roofs can easily withstand scratches and cracks, they are not particularly impervious to dents. Suppose a tree branch fell on the roof; it can make a considerable dent in the surface, leading to pooling or forming of puddles. The best thing you can do in this situation is to clear the surrounding area of things that could dent the surface.

Types of Metal Roofing Materials


Copper Roofing

Copper is one of the oldest metal roofing materials available, and it carries the qualities that make metal roofs an excellent choice for homeowners. 

Firstly, copper is 100% recyclable, making it highly eco-friendly; the next thing that makes copper highly sought after is its noise reduction capabilities compared to other metal roofing materials. Lastly, it has the durability that metal roofing is well-known for.

Aluminium Roofing

Aluminium is well-known for its durability and the ability to withstand extreme temperatures. What these qualities mean when it comes to metal roofing is that when you use an aluminium roof, it’ll be able to withstand the changes in the climate. 

The reason behind this adaptability to changing weather is the aluminium’s ability to react to different conditions by producing chemicals that protect its surface. This ability also makes aluminium roofing ideal for houses in coastal areas. So if protection against corrosion is your concern, aluminium is your best choice for a metal roofing material.


Zinc Roofing

One of the best qualities of zinc, aside from its aesthetically pleasing appearance, is its ability to form patina over time. Patina is a layer that forms on top of bronze metals like zinc due to oxidation, and what this transformation does is cover the scratches sustained by the material. 

Zinc is also a highly effective metal roofing material because of how effortless it is to shape it, but the downside of this ability to take on any form is it’s also easy to dent zinc. But if you’re careful enough and ensure that the vicinity is free from any possible debris like tree branches, zinc is a good metal roofing material option. 


Steel Roofing

Steel is one of the best materials for construction due to its durability. From frames to posts and even as a roofing material, steel can take on any form and do a great job protecting your homes. Steel is also 100% recyclable, meaning, if you’re particular about being eco-friendly, steel is usually a good choice. 

Another good thing about choosing steel as a metal roofing material is that it is considerably affordable compared to other metal roofing options. While there is sometimes a trade-off between affordability and quality, you can trust that you won’t have to be torn between the two with steel roofing.

Tin Roofing

At one point in time, tin roofing was considered to be a viable option when it came to metal roofing materials. Due to its durability and availability, tin was the go-to material used by DIY roofers. 

These days, when we say “tin roofing,” we are no longer referring to tin itself but galvanised steel. Galvanised steel is one of the three types of steel roofing materials available. It is the most common type of steel roofing material due to its availability and ability to do what other types of metal roofing do.
