You can't find a more durable or safer metal than steel and it’s no surprise that steel is the metal that's the most widely used in construction products.
Here are some of the main benefits of using metal roofing on new residential homes.
Designed for Australian Weather
A huge benefit of steel roofing is that it's made for Australia's challenging weather conditions. Because a steel roof is remarkably secure, safe and weather tight, it doesn't peel, crack or rust. Steel roofing can withstand harsh weather and won't fracture during hailstorms. A metal roof doesn't soak up water, so it doesn't add additional water to a structure's frame.
A steel roof is one of the safest roofs a homeowner can find. In addition to being able to endure severe Australian weather conditions, a steel roof is non-combustible, meaning it doesn't spark.
Lightweight & Quality
Even though steel roofing is incredibly strong and durable, it's also exceptionally lightweight. An average metal roof only weighs about 1.5 tonnes, which is a little less than the weight of a regular vehicle meaning there’s less load on your frame.
More Than Thirty Colour Options
When it comes to colour options, there's a rainbow of colours from which to choose. Keep in mind that Stoddart supplies and installs roofing and rainwater products in more than 30 colours and finishes.
When deciding on a colour, choose one that can complement the colour and style of your house. Because colour reproductions on a computer screen can vary, it's best to check a specific shade against an actual sample of a product before making a purchase.
Energy Efficient and Environmentally Friendly
Many Australians choose steel roofing because of its energy efficiency. Steel roofs are environmentally friendly. In fact, at the end of its life, a steel roof is 100 percent recyclable. This is not the case for other roofing materials.
