Metal roofing dates back as early as the 3rd Century BC when copper shingles were installed on the Lovamahapaya Temple in Sri Lanka. It has also been widely used in Europe by the Romans and in Medieval architecture. Until today, metal roofing remains a popular choice among builders and contractors because of its durability, strength, and its aesthetic properties.
