Once used primarily on commercial projects, metal roofs are increasingly common for residential projects, including multi-story apartments complexes and single-family homes. In fact, metal roofs have become one of the fastest growing innovations in the home remodeling market.

The Metal Roofing Alliance estimates that 750,000 metal roofs were installed on U.S. homes in 2015. In recent years, these practical products have achieved double-digit market share growth while the market share of asphalt shingles has dropped slightly.
