If you are near the ocean - be extremely careful about the type of factory installed paint used to protect the steel from the salt in the air. As well if the house is exposed to high winds - then steel is not a good material for the roof or the walls. The vibration might cause the holes in the steel around screws to become bigger and then cause moisture issues (and the sheets could become airborne). Since the sheets are very large - when the sun shines on the material - the expansion will literally cause the sheet to try and throw itself off the wall (roof) and again might make holes around screws bigger.
