Metal roofs in Costa Rica - Metal Construction AssociationAfter reading a few threads, I wanted to introduce myself to this community. Why does the majority of costa ricans use metal for their roofs?

Beach House, Costa Rica - ebhconceptDue to the amount of rainfall in costa rica, our dream of a flat, Bauhaus-like structure was not an option.

That's the way of life in costa rica. So the roof had to be pitched at forty-five degrees to allow rainwater to drain easily from the thatched palms ...
