(stamped) sheet metal roof covering


Explanation:
I would says that "stamped" is optional since all these sheet metals seem to be made with a stamping process.

I recommend using "roof covering" because it seems to me like they are trying to specify what type of materials will be used to cover the roof. As you can imagine the whole "roof" is much more than just the covering, i.e. decking, supporting structure, etc.

Also sheet metal seems to be a widely accepted name for this type of material.

Example taken from the Ref site:

"roof covering: sheet metal
roof covering: copper sheet
roof covering: corrugated iron
roof covering: zinc sheet "

Saludos...
