Corrugated metal systems?
I'm planning a small structure in hot, humid Florida (climate zone 2). In contemplating materials for the roofing and siding, corrugated metal appeals to me because it's affordable, green, and provides two specific advantages that Florida needs: strength against hurricane debris impacts, and the potential for a reflective surface coat to mitigate heat gain.
How would you design a green, efficient, dry roof and wall system using corrugated metal for both roofing and siding? I have two constraints: the building's small footprint renders a double stud wall system 'out of the question', and spray foam insulation is not welcome.
Thanks for your consideration!
