Zinc is one of the most versatile metals around. Its malleable nature makes it perfect for building exterior applications like roofs and cladding.  
Zinc is often used because of its durability and corrosion resistance. This metal is especially useful for home improvement projects where you want something long-lasting and easy to maintain. 
Zinc is a traditional hard metal widely used across the UK and favoured by architects and homeowners alike in modern architecture for roofing and cladding applications. It is extremely hard wearing and durable, with many different finishes available. Zinc can be formed into complex geometric shapes or used as a simple standing seam roof covering, making it one of the most popular metals in use in construction today. 
At Custom Metal Roofing Ltd we work with all zinc manufacturers such as VM Zinc, Rheinzink, elZinc, Nedzink and ZM Silesia and feature on their preferred contractor’s lists. 

Zinc Roofing 

When it comes to standing seams, there really isn't much difference between traditional asphalt and metal roofs. Both materials offer long life expectancy, low maintenance costs, and high resistance to weather conditions. 
However, one important factor often overlooked is the ability of each type of roofing system to resist water penetration. This is where zinc roofs stand apart. Withstanding up to 10 times greater moisture levels than asphalt, zinc offers superior waterproofing properties. In addition, zinc is naturally resistant to most forms of decay due to its chemical composition. 

Zinc Cladding 

Zinc cladding offers many advantages including being low maintenance, corrosion resistant, durable, attractive and cost-effective. In addition, there are several benefits associated with its use, including energy efficiency, thermal insulation, durability, fire resistance and ease of installation. 
The fact that zinc cladding is a renewable resource makes it even more sustainable, while the metal itself is recyclable. This means that you don't have to worry about disposing of waste products once the project is complete. 
In terms of design, zinc is versatile and can be incorporated into a wide range of architectural styles. It works well with contemporary designs, traditional architecture, and heritage projects alike.
