- Low weight
You will find that a modern metal roof is much lighter when comparing roofing with other traditional roofing materials, such as concrete or terracotta tiles.
Concrete tiles can weigh up to 4394.18 kgs per square metre, while metal weighs up to 732.36 kgs per square metre.
The lighter weight of metal makes installation easier and helps you save on the design and construction of the support structure.
- Speed and ease of installation
Speed and ease of installation are advantages of metal roofing that cannot be ignored. The ratio of length, width and size and the fact that it is lightweight making it easy to handle.
Most metal roofs come in several individual pieces or 900mm wide panels that are easy to handle and install.
4. Good for all seasons and climates.
One of the most significant advantages of metal roofing is the ability to withstand all weather and seasons. It may be preferable in areas where winter storms are frequent, as rain and ice or even snow if you are down further south. Everything can slide off more easily. It is also perfect for hot and humid climates, as it repels moisture and reflects heat.
5 Metal roofs are environmentally friendly
So if you are one of those who want to help mother nature, a metal roof is just what you need. Here you can see how environmentally friendly they are:
Cool metal roofing: The electricity or power you use daily comes from natural resources such as coal and natural gas which are non-renewable.
By using cool metal roofing, you not only reduce your electricity bill but also minimise the consumption of natural resources. In addition, between 25% and 95% of the metals are made from recycled materials.
Solar-friendly: metal roofs and solar panels are a great combination. This means installing a solar panel on a metal roof is easy. Solar panels shade the roof and maximise cooling.
Metal roofs are 100% recyclable. So the metal can be recycled and turned into new sheets or other products.
Metal Roofing Looks Amazing!
We are totally biased – But a metal looks modern with a large colour range and different profiles you can select for your home.
The roof line can become a main feature of the home as metal roofing can be moulded into almost any roofing profile you can imagine – From straight lines, to curves. Roofing panels can also be extended down to clad the exterior walls.
