The top 3 reasons to choose steel over cladding for your roof:

Steel roof over cladding is a popular option for a number of reasons, including:

  • Increased longevity- using steel over cladding for your roof can keep your property protected, insulated and secure for 40 or even 50 years! In fact, this is guaranteed on installation. This is twice as long as a standard felt roof, or even a single ply roof. You should consider maintaining your roof with paint to protect from rust and corrosion, to get the most out of your steel clad roof.
  • Effective insulation- steel roof over cladding can help to create a well insulated property. This can help you save money on energy bills, and means that you will use less fuel to heat your property, especially during the winter. For a steel over clad roof, there are a range of insulation types and materials you can consider, which should be determined by the requirements of your business. You could even opt for sound proofing too!
  • Stunning visual effect- using steel roof over cladding can help create a roof that is visually appealing and attractive, for both new build commercial properties, and older, period properties too. This can help increase the curb appeal of your building, with a striking roof feature. Steel over clad roofs also proivide safe access too.
