The History of Steel Tiles
According to legend, metal tile was first used for a synagogue in Jerusalem about 970 BC.
Around the world, the Parthenon (5th century B.C) and the Cathedral of Notre Dame (12th century) were built with metal roofs. Unfortunately, the
Turkish army stored explosives in the Parthenon, so the roof no longer exists, but the beautiful pitched foof of Notre Dame remains today. European metal tile came to America by the time of independence.
In the early 20th century, zinc was added to steel to prevent corrosion.
