What Is a Zinc Roof? And What To Expect

Zinc has been a reliable staple in the roofing industry for centuries. Yet, surprisingly, many people do not know much about it or the benefits it boasts.

If you’re considering a zinc roof for your property, here’s a few things you can expect from this popular material:

According to VMZINC, zinc’s natural properties make it one of the most superior metals to work with when it comes to roofing. In its natural state, zinc features a shiny, metallic surface that develops a patina over time. Nowadays, the material can be manipulated and texturised to create a wide range of finishes to suit the customer.

What to Expect From a Zinc Roof

With its durability being one of zinc’s key selling points, this leads to so many other benefits.  For example: 
  • As zinc is hard-wearing, it does not require costly maintenance or repairs;
  • It is flexible, making it a versatile material that can be used for imaginative building projects
  • The patina it develops over time gives added protection against outdoor corrosion and helps it self-repair any imperfections
  • Zinc’s long-lasting lifespan can be up to 60 years in an aggressive environment, or over 100 years in a milder environment
  • It is not degraded by UV light, making it weatherproof for all seasons
  • Zinc is 100% recyclable, making it an environmentally friendly choice. It also takes less energy to produce than other metal roofing solutions because of its lower melting point
  • As it is lightweight, this makes it quick and easy to transport and install
  • Zinc roofs also look great! That’s why it’s been around for many years and continues to grow in popularity.
