    Hi everyone, I was thinking about using aluminium for the roof of my coop, lightweight and durable I think this may be a good idea. Have any of you got aluminium roofs or any concerns with using it?

    Metal roofs are very popular in this area. I wouldn't use anything else, for a coop, a house or any other building. You'd think it would get hot inside but it doesn't happen. Evidently they reflect heat. My coop is large and has lots of air movement -- more like a shelter -- and in the heat of summer, they will go inside it, in preference to going in the shade of tall bushes, evidently because it's cooler in there.
