I've never used it but I hear it's really hard to solder.

I have alot of contractors that are interested in using 7mm zinc half round gutter in place of lead coated copper because of price.
Besides being softer than copper and expanding and contracting more, is there any downside to zinc?
What type of rivets would you recomend using for lap joints?
