Common Questions

Bitumen roofing sheets are an incredibly versatile roofing material that’s easy to fit. This makes them ideal for virtually any roofing project, whether you’re reroofing a garage or constructing a new shed. There are, however, a few common questions our customers ask before buying these roofing sheets. Below are answers to each of these!

What Are These Roofing Sheets Made From?

Bitumen roofing sheets are crafted from bitumen fibres only. This makes them incredibly lightweight and therefore easy to install. This material also provides superb longevity, with it being able to withstand tough weather conditions and varied atmospheric conditions. Unlike alternative metal roofing sheets, these bitumen roofing sheets will not rust throughout their 15+ year lifespan either.

Can You Stand on Bitumen Roofing Sheets?

Whilst these roofing sheets are designed to withstand environmental debris and tough weather conditions, they should not be stood on for prolonged periods of time. This is as you may damage the corrugation and, therefore, impact the overall strength of the sheet. To avoid having to stand on these bitumen roofing sheets during installation, refer to the manufacturers installation guide.  

Do You Sell Screws for These Roofing Sheets?

The majority of manufacturers only supply and recommend nails. These are often purposely designed to prevent any water ingress around the head and anchor into a timber structure with ease. If you are worried about strong winds lifting your bitumen roofing sheets, use more than the recommend 20 fixings per sheet and also use the recommended foam eaves fillers.

How Many Fixings Should I Use With These Bitumen Roofing Sheets?

We recommend a minimum of 20 fixings per sheet. This should be increased if you live in an area with extreme weather conditions, such as strong winds. These fixings should be placed at equal intervals, as per the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Why is there a Minimum Order Quantity on These Roofing Sheets?

Some of our bitumen roofing sheets have a minimum order quantity. This is as transporting or delivering too few of the sheets can often result in damage. This is due to the 2mm – 3mm thickness allowing the sheets to flex when being moved in small quantities.

Which Brand is Best – Coroline, Onduline or Corrapol?

Coroline, Onduline and Corrapol roofing sheets are all crafted from bitumen fibres. The greatest difference between the three is thickness. Whilst Coroline and Corrapol are between 2mm – 2.5mm thick, Onduline roofing sheets are 3mm thick. This provides you with additional strength, although each brand provide a 15 year life expectancy for their bitumen roofing sheets.

How Much Do These Roofing Sheets Weigh?

Bitumen roofing sheets weigh around 5kg per sheet. This is considerably less than other roofing sheets, such as metal. This low weight makes them easy to handle during fitting and doesn’t put any unnecessary strain on the structure. This makes them ideal for sheds or garden buildings where a minimal timber frame is being used.
