Aluminium vs Galvalume roofing





January 10, 2012

Q. I am constructing a 1,00,000 sgft warehouse and wish to know which roofing material is better

a) Colored Aluminium corrugated roofing
b) Colored Aluminium-Zinc alloy (55%) steel corrugated roofing


Aluminum roofing is supposed to be costlier but are the advantages of aluminum roofing weigh out the costs in the long run?

Thanks

Type B. Precoated Aluminium sheets are better for normal warehouse.

Sir:

In my area aluminum would be too soft due to the hail.
