Corrugated metal is one of Shipley's favorite roofing and wall materials for two simple reasons: In many cases, “it's the least expensive and most maintenance-free material out there,” he explains. His supplier of choice, MBCI, offers 24-inch-wide sheets in 26-gauge and 29-gauge thicknesses. Seen here on a Shipley house, the products use an exposed fastener system and come in a variety of colors and finishes. MBCI, 877.713.6224.
