Benefits of Roofing Sheets
Roof sheets offer a number of advantages when compared to other roofing materials. These include:
Roofing sheets are one of the most versatile solutions available. They can be used for a broad range of different applications, from small outbuildings to large commercial or agricultural premises. Roof sheets are also available in a wide variety of sizes, styles, colours, profiles, finishes and materials – so no matter your style of property, there’s the perfect roofing sheet for you.
Thanks to the corrugated or box profiles that many roofing sheets share, they tend to be very thin. This allows the sheets to be incredibly lightweight, especially when compared to traditional roof tiles or slates. This means that both transporting and working with roofing sheets is much easier and less time-consuming.
As roof sheets are manufactured in larger sizes than individual roof tiles, far fewer are required to cover the same amount of space. This makes fitting these sheets to your roof a much faster and far more straightforward process. Working with and cutting them on-site also requires no specialist tools—excellent news for DIYers looking to do the work themselves.
Roofing sheets are incredibly strong and impact-resistant thanks to their corrugated profile, which effectively dissipates force. Roof sheets are also highly resistant to corrosion due to their materials and special coatings. Another strength advantage is their larger size, which means a sheeted roof has far fewer seams, which means fewer structural weak points.
Thanks to simple installation, roofing sheets don’t need to be fitted by a professional. Even if you do hire a contractor, they won’t need much time to do the job, minimising labour costs. The strength and reliability of roof sheets also result in a long, fuss-free lifespan, meaning you won’t be paying out for excessive repairs or maintenance. We stock sheets to suit any budget, from just £5 per square metre.
Uses for Roofing Sheets
Due to the choice of materials and styles, you can use roof sheets on virtually any type of building. These include:
Sheds and Garden Outbuildings
Roofing sheets are incredibly popular among homeowners for use on sheds or other garden buildings. Thanks to their large size, often only a few sheets are needed to completely cover the roof. This makes fitting them a breeze, even if you’re inexperienced at DIY. The corrugated profile of roof sheets also allows water to run off quickly, as well as providing excellent protection against impacts.
Garages and Carports
Roofing sheets are great for garages or carports due to the minimal fuss needed during installation or throughout their lifespan. If you’re looking for a roofing solution that’s easy to handle and won’t require much maintenance once installed, roofing sheets are the perfect choice. Plus, as roofing sheets can be installed on roofs with pitches as low as 5°, they’re suitable for both single-sloped and apex roofs.
Residential Homes and Extensions
Roofing sheets are often favoured by homeowners looking to re-roof their properties thanks to their quick installation. Due to how swift and straightforward fitting roof sheets is when compared to tiled roofs, disruption to family life is minimised while also keeping labour costs low.
Commercial or Industrial Premises
Roof sheets are often used on commercial or industrial premises such as warehouses or office buildings. They boast an excellent combination of strength, reliability and swift installation compared to other pitched roof materials. Choosing roofing sheets keeps project time and cost to a minimum, which are key factors for businesses undertaking roofing projects.
Conservatories and Orangeries
Roofing sheets are a superb option for homeowners looking to replace the roof on their conservatory or orangery. Combining both transparent and opaque roofing sheets is an excellent way to allow plenty of natural light into the space, reducing the need for artificial light and your energy bills.
Roofing sheets are a common sight in the countryside, and for good reason. Agricultural buildings such as barns or stables can have enormous roof spaces, meaning the large size of roofing sheets is perfect for minimising installation time. What’s more, thanks to the lightweight roof sheets, they’re perfect for timber structures that may not be able to support heavier materials such as tiles or slates.
Roofing Sheet Materials
We stock sheets in a wide range of materials, these are some of the most popular:
Bitumen roofing sheets are a low-cost, easy-to-fit roofing material that can still withstand a wide range of adverse weather conditions. They’re perfect for small structures such as sheds, garages or stables, particularly for timber structures that cannot support heavier materials.
Polycarbonate roof sheets are highly versatile, and available in a variety of thicknesses and styles. They’re highly popular due to their lightweight and translucent or transparent options, which allow natural light to flood into the space below. Perfect for conservatories or greenhouses.
Metal roofing sheets are manufactured from incredibly tough steel, making them ideal for commercial or industrial premises looking for maximum strength. Tile effect metal roofing sheets are also available, which are very popular with homeowners looking to mimic the appearance of traditional tiles or slates at a lower cost with faster installation.
