I was driving down a side street and I saw this roof out of the corner of my eye on a house that was in the middle of a major remodel.
I can’t say I’ve seen this type before on a residential house, and it doesn’t seem to be pictured in any of my various training materials. When I think of aluminum roofs, I tend to think of garages or commercial space.
A quick google search shows it is corrugated aluminum. Pretty neat looking, and it certainly stands out in a neighborhood of asphalt tile roofs.
If one were to come across such a roof on an inspection, would you walk it? (It looks slippery) And other than seems, what else would be a concern? From what I am reading, it seems like such a roof would last a very long time and require little to no maintenance.
