If you’re new to the world of roofing sheets or wall cladding, or you just want to learn a bit more, here is a comprehensive list of frequently asked questions that we’ve put together to answer any burning questions you might have.

Bushbury Cladding

What are Insulated Roof Sheets?

Insulated roof sheets are roof sheets that are rated highly for their ability to retain heat. Their insulated layers work to minimise heat loss through a building’s roof, so it keeps it warm, reduces your carbon footprint and potentially lowers energy bills by preventing heat loss. They also have the added advantage that they can reduce the level of noise inside a building.

What are Corrugated Steel Roofing Sheets?

Corrugated steel roofing sheets are roofing sheets shaped into a series of parallel ridges and grooves that gives the sheet rigidity and strength. It makes them ideal for the likes of agricultural buildings such as barns and stables. At Bushbury, our corrugated steel roofing sheets are available with a thickness gauge of 0.5mm and 0.7mm and can be cut to any length up to 6m.

What are Box Profile Steel Roofing Sheets?

An alternative to corrugated roof sheets, box profile steel roof sheets are a more modern profile with their ribs and valleys; they are widely used for industrial units like warehouses. At Bushbury, our box profile roofing sheets have a thickness of 0.5mm and 0.7mm and can be cut to any length up to 7m.

What are Tile Effect Steel Roofing Sheets?

Tile effect roofing sheets are roofing sheets that are designed to look like titles, making them ideal for applications in domestic and commercial premises. Tiles do not have the robustness of metal that can withstand extreme weather conditions, so tile effect roofing sheets eliminate the problem while providing the aesthetics of tiles.

What are Anti-Condensation Roof Sheets?

Anti-condensation roof sheets are backing that can be applied to box profile roof sheets, tile effect roof sheets and corrugated roof sheets. They are made by applying a thick anti-condensation membrane to the roof sheets, that helps prevent water from soaking into the trusses. This prevents a host of problems such as mould, damp and rotting, which can occur as a result of condensation.

What are Wall Cladding Sheets?

Wall cladding sheets are metal sheeting that fit to either the interior or exterior the walls of a building to provide protection to the premises. They add an extra layer of insulation and can be an excellent choice for hygienic applications, such as commercial kitchens, due to their superior fire rating and sanitary properties. Wall cladding sheets are available as box profile or corrugated metal sheeting.

Is There a Minimum Order from Bushbury?

What are Self-Tapping Screws?

Self-tapping screws are self-tapping fasteners that have a drill bit to allow them to be used for screwing the sheets down without pre-drilling. They provide an efficient means to attach two materials. At Bushbury, we provide self-tapping timber screws for installing roofing sheets onto timber batons and wooden purlins; self-tapping Tek screws for installing steel roof sheets to z-purlins and steel frames; and self-tapping stitch screws are used to stitch the overlaps, ridge and barge flashings to steel roof sheets.

What are Galvanised Z-Purlins?

Galvanised Z-purlins are used alongside steel roof sheets to support the deck of the roof. They are designed to form the roof and wall joists of a building structure, sitting between the roofing sheets and the building to ensure the sheets are firmly attached in place.

What are Flashings?

Roof sheet flashings come in two varieties, barge flashings and ridge flashings. They are designed to be attached to the edges of a roof once it has been lain to deflect wind away from the roof sheets to prevent them from blowing away. Our flashings are typically three metres in length but can be altered to suit your requirements.
