Shapes of roofing sheets to choose from

The roof is the most important part of a building for several reasons. Firstly, it needs to offer protection against the elements. As part of this, it must be able to effectively direct water away from the property. On top of this, it needs to be efficient so it does not allow all the heat to quickly escape. Then, it must also be strong, sturdy, and great to look at. Insulated roofing sheets are a really good option here.

Why use sheeting?

There are many reasons to use roof sheets. For starters they are light, easy to work with, and generally cost effective. In addition, they come in various shapes, sizes, and colours. This gives people more choice in terms of the aesthetics. The sheeting can also have insulation built in so there is no need to add any extra. This can speed up installation time even more.

What shapes are there?

The most common shape is corrugated. Most people will recognise it with its wave effect. It is a good option because it encourages water to flow freely. The sheets can be aluminium, steel, plastic, or bitumen. The aluminium ones offer the longest lifespan.

A second option is trapezoidal or box profile. This style is slightly newer than corrugated but quickly became a very popular option for industrial use. The straight finish means they are excellent when it comes to waterproofing. The shape also means they are quick and easy to produce. This results in lower purchase prices.

The third type of sheet you can opt for is roof tile panels. The idea with them is that they look like traditional tiles. This makes them a good alternative for homes or outbuildings that people want to look like the main property. The tile sheets come in an array of sizes and colours to suit different tastes.
