Does their faith prevent them from using aluminum?

No, they put metal roofs on all the time.

aluminum is refined with electricity...The devoted ones have nothing to do with electricity...maybe corrugated iron?

No, don't be silly. They use generators all the time. They just don't connect to the grid.

Some of the really devout ones don't do that...If they have power tools they are run by air pressure off a compressor run by a diesel engine (It was explained to me that diesel engines were acceptable because there is no electric spark.  For some of them it is sparks they are proscribed from.)

There are extremists in all religions.  Orthodox Jewish women wear wigs and can have sex at only certain times. Some fundamentalist Christians believe man and dinosaurs lived at the same time.

Yes, there are different sects with different rules.  Old order Amish are the strictest.  What's weird is a lot of times they all work together with the other sects with different rules.  I live close to some Mennonites who have Amish girls working in their bakery and store.  The Mennonites have electric, phones and drive the Amish girls to and from work.
