In some south america countries there is a metal roofing called "cindu" The product is composite panel with black steel 0,25mm thickness, asphalt and in the top, an aluminum foil. Is this roof not allowed in american market? Is there some problems with fire? Is there some norm in american standard construction Do you recommend this kind of product. How do you compare against galvalume sheets?

I have heard of these products but have no real knowledge of them. I do not believe they are available in North America.

Dear Todd Please see in www.cindu.com.ve. They have a English version. Thank you for your answer

I did visit their website but I still feel that I do not know enough about the product to speak knowledgably about it. I am sorry. I will say this -- anything with an asphaltic base tends to break down over time in one way or another.

I have a metal roof that is 142 years old. It does leak in places at times. We have had it patched and top painted. The problem is that I have no idea what all has been used on this roof. We would like to scarp down the rood and make repairs. How do we do this, and do you think it is worth our time and expense? THank you Pam

Honestly, after 142 years, it may be time to donate it to the Smithsonian and invest in a new metal roof for the next 142 years. You're probably looking at a HUGE amount of work to try to do some restoration. If you wish, email me some pictures and I will see what thoughts I have. All Best, Todd Miller [email protected]
