Metal roofing has so much to offer compared to conventional roofing:
Choose from a selection of different colours and finishes. Very flexible in terms of shapes and curves. Different fitting systems can allow for various architectural design options.
Metal roofing combined with high-quality acoustic insulation can provide excellent sound-dampening qualities.
A low amount of energy and resources is used during the manufacturing process and metal is almost 100% recyclable.
Metal roofing will reflect heat from the building underneath during summertime. If coupled with the right insulation system it will retain heat in the building, thereby reducing energy costs.
Depending on the type of metal used and correct installation, a metal roof can last anywhere from 60+ yrs for Aluminium and 150+ yrs for Copper.
Metal roofing is extremely durable compared to conventional roofing. It will not leak, warp, crack, dry-out, split or rot and therefore will be less liable to infestation by pests and vermin. The metal will expand and contract with seasonal temperatures and is essentially maintenance-free. It can be easily cleaned using water.
The fitting system used makes the whole area of metal roof watertight and impervious to snow, rain and wind. For marine areas such as seaside towns where salt water corrosion and high winds are an issue, you would generally use aluminium, copper or a specially coated steel.
So there you have it! Many reasons to choose Metal Roofing to improve the look and functionality of your property.
