Advantages of Metal Roofing in Malaysia

Metal roofing is a popular choice for commercial and residential roofing in Malaysia due to its overwhelming advantages.


It is resistant to almost any type of weather, particularly against strong winds, debris, rain, and hail. With proper maintenance and installation, metal roofing can last up to 50 years. Those made of zinc or copper can even go up to 100 years with little to no signs of corrosion.


Compared to concrete tiles, metal roofing is significantly lighter. Concrete tiles weigh 53kg/m2, whereas a 0.50mm steel sheet only weighs 5 kg/m2.

Quick and Easy Installation

The lightweight metal roofing material makes installation an easy and quick process. The length and width of the materials also make them easy to handle.


Metal is an excellent reflector and can bounce UV rays from the sun. The perpetually sunny weather in Malaysia justifies having metal roofing as reflecting heat can reduce cooling costs by up to 25%, lowering electricity bills.


Using metal roofing is also a way to reduce the use of natural resources like coal and petroleum that fuels electricity for cooling appliances. Besides that, metal roofing is also 100% recyclable.


Metal roofing is non-combustible and is made of materials that provide an additional layer of protection against fire.

Common Types of Metal Roofing in Malaysia


Steel’s primary advantage is its versatility and low cost. It is one of the hardest metal roofing materials and can withstand high winds up to 190 kph. Because they seal out moisture, steel roofs are also resistant to mould and fungus; thus, preventing any form of rotting.

Partnering with BlueScope, Swissma utilises an array of premium coated steel such as  Colorbond®, Vermoe and Zincalume® that result in unparalleled durability and appeal.


Apart from easy maintenance, aluminium is also resistant to red rust and corrosion. This trait makes it an ideal metal roofing material in Malaysia’s tropical weather. It is highly malleable, which allows it to be fabricated into a variety of profiles to suit every need.


Among the roofing materials most resistant to fire, copper is a popular metal roofing option in Malaysia. This timeless selection is also easy to transport and install.


Zinc is known for its impressive lifespan and low maintenance quality. When installed properly, this non-corrosive material can last for centuries. It is also environmentally friendly as it has a low melting point and does not produce toxic water runoff.

Metal Roofing FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Dismissed as a myth, the belief that metal roofing is noisy and prone to lighting strikes stems from a misconception about metal roofs. The only way it can produce a racket is when it’s installed over rafters and secured with exposed fasteners.

However, this obsolete method of installing roofs is no longer common. Metal roofing actually produces less noise than traditional asphalt roofing as it comes with sturdy sheathing that reduces all the noises from extreme weather conditions.

All metal roofing materials have their pros and cons. Hence, deciding which material is the best depends on where your priorities lie. Copper is perhaps the most appealing option while zinc is great for those who prioritise sustainability. Aluminium is highly resistant to corrosion whereas steel is the most common and affordable metal roofing option.

Metal deck roofing is a type of metal sheet with ridges commonly used for roofs or floors. It requires steel joists or beams to install and serves as a platform for metal roofing materials, insulation, and water-resistant membrane.
