Number three is efficiency. In the south, a light-colored roof or siding. There's a radiant barrier given the air gap behind the metal. Fourth, is easy install. This can be a do-it-yourself project. Five, it's easy to remove a panel for maintenance and put it back without destroying it. Six, the metal panel is 30 to 60% recycled content. At the end of its life, it will still be valuable and not end up in landfill. Seven, no rot. Eight, it's easy to clean with a quick power washing. Nine, hail and fire resistance wherever hail and wildfires are an issue. Ten, when building a super-efficient house, it's easy to make really easy metal trim pieces for windows and doors and add super thick insulation on the outside of the walls or the roof.
