Different Types of Roof Cladding
There are many different types of commercial roof cladding materials available on the market, however this often makes it difficult for people to choose which one is right for them. After all, they must consider many factors: such as how it benefits them personally, the climate in which they live, their available budget and whether they’re searching for aesthetic qualities or not. Here are the different types of cladding…
Steel Roof Cladding
Stainless steel is very resistant to damage, including scuff marks and corrosive effects such as rust. This makes it a good roofing material as it’s oxidised top layer provides a hygienic and no porous surface. Plus, it is also durable, lightweight and very low maintenance.
Zinc Roof Cladding
Zinc is known for being a very versatile material which means that it can be easily moulded and shaped into many forms without sacrificing its durability. In addition to this, it is also weatherproof and just like steel, it is resistant to corrosion- however it is also much cheaper.
Copper Roofing Cladding
This cladding option can be rather costly, however it may save you money in the long run due to its reflective properties. This characteristic enables it to reflect summer heat whilst retaining winter heat. It also has a very aesthetic appearance and is perfect for irregular shaped roofs.
Wooden Roof Cladding
Although wooden, this cladding material is surprisingly strong and insulates a building very well despite its lightweight characteristic. It can be very easily adapted and is often installed in long overlapping boards. It must be maintained, however, to ensure that it does not fall victim to damages
