Earlier metal roofing was sheeting in the form of corrugated galvanized steel and is still found today in parts of the developing world. In addition, colour-coated steel roofs are popular in some of the Nordic countries such as Finland and Sweden.
Steel roofing has many advantages such as; durable in cold weather, does not get as hot as asphalt, can last longer and cost less than asphalt shingles in the long term.
