Stainless Steel’s thickness is typically less than that of other metal roofing materials, which allows for the design of a lighter, more cost-effective supporting structure. Although low in weight, stainless steel has a high profile in terms of durability. Stainless steel roofs can be made using a variety of techniques, from the traditional standing seam method to special welded techniques.
Stainless steel is the most recycled material in the world. Although long lasting, it can be recycled repeatedly without loss of quality, resulting in raw material savings and reduced environmental impact in the manufacturing process. At the end of a building’s life, steel components can be dismantled easily with a high reclamation rate.
