Zinc is a strange material and it’s quite a lot of effort to get it to work properly – all sorts of issues to do with ventilating the underside of the zinc sheets… that said it’s a beautiful material and seems to react well with the irish light…
An alternative to consider is Tecu Copper sheeting which can be obtained in a zinc-coloured finish (as well as golden, green prepatinated, natural copper and natural copper coated to stay the copper colour for ever…). Issues of honesty spring to mind and it’s a more expensive product but it’s much much easier to work with and has none of the ventilation issues of zinc…
The silvery version called Tecu Zinn is actually copper coated in tin and has a nice lustrous finish – maybe a bit shinier than zinc but should weather similarly to a pewter colour…
