Quality Steel Roofing Materials
Steel roofing products have become a staple in the market, being well-suited to the Australian climate and landscape. Steel is heavier than aluminium and manufacturers are constantly improving their finishes to protect steel products from rust and corrosion.
Steel is usually zinc-coated for corrosion protection and then sealed. A coating of epoxy primer assists with adhesion and a baked-on acrylic top coating adds colour and protection. The Steel roofing supplies are generally given highly durable paint finishes ensuring they are long-lasting and easy to maintain.
The Steel roofs are capable of resisting hail and extreme heat, cooling down quickly during the hot summer months while being capable of retaining heat in winter.
Colorbond is an extremely flexible roofing material. The lightweight design means it requires a less structural foundation and can cover open-plan areas without needing unsightly column supports. With 22 colours available in the range, you are in complete control of the design and style of your home while complementing other building materials.
Steel roofing supplies are durable and inexpensive, and it comes with the option of extended warranties of up to 36 years for complete peace of mind.
Price is important when choosing a contractor but beware of cutting corners when it comes to roofing. There are key factors in the installation process that should not be left out that make all the difference to the longevity of your roof.
Once you have chosen your roofing material, spend some time getting to know the basics of installation and where problems can occur. Don’t be afraid to ask your contractor if they plan to use starter strips, for example, or any other queries you might have. Be wary of timelines that seem hasty as you don’t want your job rushed.
