In the old days, metal was considered an exclusive commercial roofing material. The development in the manufacturing process, however, has made it possible to create metal roofs that can fit residential homes. From 3.7% in 1998, metal roofing systems now account for 14% of the total roofing market. This is a three percent leap from its 11% market share in 2015.
Why is metal gaining popularity as a roofing material now more than ever? Apart from its superior strength, this roofing material is also eco-friendly. It can be recycled or reused for other purposes. Alpine Roofing Construction shares some creative ways to reuse metal roofing systems.
Add a unique element to your garden by creating yard art using metal roofing material. You can build a bird feeder or house with a couple of small pieces of metal.

Someone with more experience can use different metal tools to emboss the metal with distinct patterns.
Take advantage of a metal roof’s magnetic feature by creating a magnetic board. You can use this in your home, office, or garage. Paint the metal to match the decor of the room. You may also frame the piece to add more character. For your kitchen, roofing metal makes a good backsplash for the stove to keep the walls clean while holding your dinner recipe.
