Iconic Aluminum Roofing Around the World

Venues around the world utilize aluminum roofing because it is not only attractive and modern but because there are many advantages due to its compound. Aluminum is corrosion and water resistant; thus,  protecting the structure from weathering and erosion making it useful for buildings that are near coastlines.

The service life of Aluminum is up to about 50 years. Unlike other traditional roofing materials, there is little upkeeping that will be required once it has been installed. The panels are put together in a sort of puzzle construction, creating a seal above the building. Energy bills are cut due to the fact that aluminum has the ability to insulate heat in the winter time and keep buildings cool in hot summer months.  The list of benefits seems almost endless. Take a look at some of the famous venues that utilize aluminum as a roofing material:
