They Repel Natural Pests

When future-proofing your building, one of the main considerations has to be how any major additions will weather the forces of nature – especially the little critters who sometimes seem determined to destroy your hard work!

Steel roofing sheets keep insects like termites away, preventing infestations and increasing the lifespan of the roof. Furthermore, there is much less chance of the roof becoming susceptible to rot – a major benefit of this modern, innovative material over older materials like clay and asphalt.

They’re Immune to Rust

Prior to the development of galvanisation technology, steel roofs were vulnerable to rust. But now, the major advantage of a galvanised roof is that it is almost immune to the curses of oxidisation and corrosion.

This means galvanised roof sheets are likely to outlive us all and last for up to 100 years, giving you peace of mind and making steel an ideal upfront outlay. Don’t risk the perils of false economy: investing now means shelling out less in maintenance costs over time.

They’re Friendly to the Building

A common misconception about metal is that it is a weighty substance with a heavy load and a consequent negative effect on all that sits under it.

But the reality is that galvanised sheets are actually remarkably feather-light. This is an important structural consideration, as it is one less bulky material for the building to have to support and so the chances of the building or its foundations being damaged are lowered.
