Corrugated bitumen roofing sheets are particularly popular for sheds, stables, garages and more. When combined with the tough corrugated form factor, the bitumen fibres used on corrugated bitumen sheets provide you with a waterproof and durable roofing solution.
Bitumen corrugated roofing is available in a variety of thicknesses ranging from 2.6mm to 3mm. Our range includes those manufactured by leading brands such as Coroline and Onduline.
We also stock these roofing sheets in a vast selection of colours. These include black, green, red and brown. This variety of thicknesses and colours ensures you'll find the perfect bitumen roofing sheets for your project at Roofing Megastore.
With our bitumen corrugated sheets being suitable on pitches between 5° and 90°, there are a few roofing projects where they can not be used. To provide added assurance many of our bitumen sheets offer a guarantee of up to 15 years. We also stock a full range of compatible fixings and flashings. This helps towards ensuring your new roof is securely fitted.
Advantages of Corrugated Bitumen
Corrugated bitumen roofing sheets carry a number of unique advantages. Their corrugated profile adds strength by evenly distributing the force of any impact across the entire sheet. Bitumen corrugated sheets are also low maintenance, as the corrugations allow water and debris to be shed very easily.
But there are a number of other advantages to consider:
Starting from as little as £5 per square metre, bitumen roofing sheets are some of the cheapest roofing supplies available to purchase. Plus, as well as saving on materials, you'll also save on labour costs, as you needn't hire a tradesperson to fit bitumen sheets, as the installation is simple, requiring no specialist tools.
Bitumen roof sheets have superb tensile strength, preventing falling debris or bad weather from causing cracks or splits. This is achieved by combining tough bitumen fibres and a strong corrugated profile throughout the full length of the sheets.
Weighing as little as 5kg each, bitumen roof sheets are easy to handle and can be used on virtually any type of structure. This includes sheds, pergolas, stables, and garages constructed from timber or masonry.
With few fixes or ancillaries being necessary, bitumen roofing sheets are quick and easy to fit. Allowing you to undertake a project with minimal disruption and cost without the strain of lifting heavier roofing materials.
Uses of Bitumen Roof Sheets
You can use bitumen roofing sheets on a variety of building types. These include garden buildings, such as small sheds or larger workshops. You can also use them to protect items stored in carports or garages. Or why not consider them for your horse stables or other structures in your Equestrian yard.
The timber structure of a garden shed isn’t able to withstand the considerable weight. It is, therefore, essential that you use a lightweight yet durable roofing material that prevents water and other debris from building up.
Weighing as little as 5kg each, most sheds can easily handle the weight of a bitumen roof sheet. Their corrugated design also allows water and snow to run off with ease, preventing a build-up and causing your sheets to bow.
Installing corrugated bitumen sheets onto a shed couldn’t be easier. At 2m in length, they should span between the eaves and ridge in most cases. You then secure the sheets into place with a minimum of 20 fixings placed along the peaks of the corrugations.
Whilst garages are usually constructed from masonry, most feature a timber roof that requires lightweight materials. However, durability and minimising condensation are essential in order to protect the belongings stored within.
As you’ll already know, bitumen roof sheets are one of the lightest roofing supplies available. Whilst condensation can occur on their underside, materials such as metal are more susceptible to this issue.
Fitting corrugated bitumen sheets onto a garage is easy. The sheets can be overlapped in order to span between the eaves and ridge. You then use a minimum of 20 fixings to secure each sheet along the peaks of the corrugations.
Much like sheds, horse stables are typically built from timber and can’t withstand the weight of many roofing materials. In order to provide a comfortable home to horses, the material used should also absorb the sound caused by rain or hail.
Due to the fibres throughout a bitumen roofing sheet, they are brilliant at absorbing the sound of rain or heavier hail. For additional sound absorption, try boarding your roof with plywood before fitting your sheets.
Installing corrugated bitumen sheets on a horse stable is simple. The process is similar on both apex and single-sloped roofs, with the 2m length minimising the need to cut or overlap sheets. By using at least 20 fixings along the peaks of the corrugation, they won’t rattle in the wind either.
