The variety of metal roofing styles often surprises someone unfamiliar with this roofing material. Although you can install metal roofing manufactured to look like other materials (slate, wood shingles, tile), many home and business owners opt for metal roofing panels manufactured in different parallel profiles that run the length of each panel. As for metal roofing colors, your choices are almost unlimited. Compatible flashing, transition profiles and other roofing elements are also available to give your metal roof a well-crafted appearance.
