In fact, its use was prevalent in the 3rd century BC Sri Lanka, where the Lovamahapaya Temple is observed being installed with copper shingles. The Pantheon was covered by copper roofing in 27 BC. European medieval architecture, centuries later, also incorporated copper alloys as roof covering, as evident in St. Mary’s Cathedral in Hildesheim, 1280 AD. This, obviously, is only to mention a few of a slew other architectural wonders scattered all over the world that display use of metal roofing system.

In those areas under the categories of alpine and mountainous, gable roofs are built shallower because this constructions means that the roofs can withstand snow better. Another thing that makes gable roofs preferable is their simplicity. Each roof section is rectangular in shape and the roof timbers are much easier to construct. This causes gable roofs to have the benefits other roofing types cannot offer. They (the gable roofs) employ fewer details so they require less work and cost.
