Top Ten Benefits of Choosing Aluminium for your Roof
ALuminium Roofing is Easier to Install
Aluminium roofing sheets are easier to install – we cut the sheets to size and fasten to the roof trusses. This can save you time, money and energy.
Aluminium is Lightweight
Aluminium is light in comparison to other roofing sheets. This makes transportation much easier and doesn’t add much weight to the overall building structure.
Aluminium has the highest strength to weight ratio of any metal, even better than steel. This makes it a very strong material, which combined with its lightweight makes it a great roofing material.
Aluminium roof sheets are corrosion resistant
Aluminium is corrosion resistant, and unlike other metals, does not rust or corrode, even in highly industrial or corrosive environments.
Energy Savings with Aluminium Roofs
Aluminium reflects the sun, meaning that in the summer the building will remain cool, despite increasing temperatures outside. It also helps maintain the heat inside the house in the winter, reducing heating costs and saving energy.
Aluminium sheets used for roofing can consist of up to 90% recycled material, meaning it’s the perfect choice for those environmentally conscious.
Robust aluminium roof sheets boast longevity
Aluminium roofs can last up to 50 years, perhaps even longer, so although the initial cost may seem high it is a long term investment. Other roofing sheets may only last 10-12 years, so replacing these up to 5 more times will inevitably add costs on to the initial price.
Aluminium sheeting is much more malleable than the alternatives, meaning that it can be easily moulded into different shapes.
Aluminium roofing sheets can often be very aesthetically pleasing, giving a modern, contemporary look to your project. However, they can also be coated to provide a range of different finishes.
Aluminium roofing sheets are non-combustible and non-flammable, and their superior strength combined with a great energy absorption level means that they have a higher resistance to denting than other metal sheets, which makes them safe against fires and falling objects.
