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.

This should be enough to be used as a reason why metal roofs are preferable but they are also less expensive compared to, say, asphalt shingles, which are not as durable as metal.
