Natural Zinc by VMZINC

Natural Zinc by VMZINC is the original zinc - shiny and smooth when it comes out of the mill. When installed on a building's or home's exterior, Natural Zinc by VMZINC will weather and form a beautifully textured grey patina. The patina’s evolution can take several years depending on the location of the panels. The aesthetically pleasing patina also provides environmental protection to the material, making zinc a durable solution that requires minimal maintenance.

This transformation of the zinc surface allows for dynamic and striking results. While marks can occasionally appear on the zinc surfaces that are unexposed to rain or are not regularly rinsed, such superficial marks do not reduce the material's lifespan. For installations in which a visible weathering process is not desired, a different VMZINC option should be selected.


If properly installed according to VMZINC installation guidelines, a natural zinc metal roof may maintain its beauty for well over 75 years, and wall cladding may last over 100 years. Like all VMZINC surface colors, Natural Zinc by VMZINC requires no scheduled maintenance.
