Steel tiles offer not only the aesthetics of the traditional concrete and clay tiles but also offer a long lasting lightweight roofing system that will provide your home with outstanding protection.
Metal is a non-combustible material, and so a metal roof will never catch fire like cedar and asphalt roofs. Insurance companies look favourably upon steel roofs.
Savings on structure
Steel tiles are a seventh the weight of concrete or clay tiles thereby offering structure and foundations cost savings.
Flat to pitched roofs
The lightweight nature of steel roof tiles offers a popular and cost-saving choice for use in converting flat roofs to pitched roofs using a lightweight supporting structure.
Strong and durable
Long-lasting, durable and maintenance free metal roofs can last for more than 50 years which makes a metal roof life cycle cost very low. One very important advantage is that a steel roof will continue looking fresh and new for many years to come requiring no additional maintenance. Coversys uses Aluzinc steel which offers a greater degree of corrosion-resistance.
Steel tiles are environmentally friendly and energy efficientMetal roofing is the only TRULY green material in the roofing industry, because it uses the least amount of resources during the manufacturing process, contains no petroleum by-products, and can always be recycled.
A metal roof has a cool reflective surface, which reflects solar heat back into the atmosphere, rather than absorbing it inside a home or a building. A metal roof can save on home energy bills.
Speed and all weather installation
A steel roof can be installed at a much faster rate than traditional clay or concrete roofs offering savings on programme and cost. An additional advantage is that steel roofs can be installed in all weather conditions.
Steel roof tiles have excellent security credentials and have attained Secure By Design (SBD) accreditation in the United Kingdom. The roof is an integral part of the security of your home. SBD is the official UK Police flagship initiative combining the principles of ‘designing out crime’ with physical security. The interlocking design of the roof steel tiles makes it resistant to heavy rain, freeze/thaw cycles, snow and wind uplift.
Lightweight and easy to install
A steel roof is incredibly lightweight, weighing one seventh the weight of concrete or clay tiles. Lightweight means that you can install a steel roof over most existing roofs, eliminating the cost, time and effort associated with a messy (and costly) removal of an old roof. Moreover, a relatively light weight of steel roofs will help ease the structural burden on homes and offer savings to the construction cost.
