Constructing a building either for a domestic purpose or for a commercial purpose requires a stable and strong roof. Each part of the building needs to have the ability to withstand adverse climatic conditions and external deterioration caused due to climatic changes.
Recently, in industrial and urban areas, colour coated roofing sheets are gaining popularity because of their aesthetic look and thermal insulation property. They serve the purpose of adding beauty and at the same time protecting the roof from external wear and tear.
The colour coated roofing sheets are used in place of galvanized iron sheets in residential buildings to provide better aesthetic look. Today, colour coated sheets can be seen at various places like offices, garages, restaurants, car-parking area, warehouses, manufacturing industries, etc.
These sheets are available in different shapes and sizes according to the requirements. Moreover, unlike traditional coating sheets, these sheets have a strong base of steel metals. These colour coated steel metals can be copper, aluminum, zinc-aluminum, and tin. Offering high-functional buildings that are compatible with high environmental requirements and delivers top-notch quality cladding to the roofs.
If we look at the different types of colour coated roofing sheets then there are distinctly 3 major types:
Moreover, if we look at the base type it can be metallic or non-metallic. Metallic materials are usually galvanized steel sheets which are colour coated on both the sides. The colour coating is done twice, one is base coat and other is the top coating. The thickness of the coating is decided based on the requirements.
Colour coated sheets offer many benefits due to its flexibility, scalability, and durability. Few of the advantages are given below.
Advantages of colour coated roofing sheets
This is the prominent feature of colour coated roofing sheets. They can last up to 100 years with little to no maintenance except periodic cleaning.
If using colour coated aluminum corrugated sheets then they are highly resistant to galvanic corrosion which is caused when aluminum comes in the contact with some metal under corrosive environment.
Another type of corrosion is crevice corrosion which is caused because of corrosive salts, dirt or sand that escapes into the parts or in between the two layers. Colour coated sheets are highly resistant to corrosion which makes them best material to be used in all type of demographic regions.
The sheets are easy to work with because they are light-weighted and have high strength. They can be customized according to the construction requirements. It is the perfect choice for extensions and renovation. Apart from this, it can be designed into different shapes and varying thickness.
When sheets are coupled with insulating abilities, they can reduce 50% consumption of energy in summer and 40% reduction in winters. Thus, provides potential thermal insulation from the external environment. Colour coated sheets are used in many places to provide thermal insulation as they are easy to install and cost-effective.
The sheets are recyclable, thus they are environmentally friendly and can be re-melted and processed to make different all new steel product. They are definitely better than plastics, fiber, and metal (because gets easily corroded).
Recently, many measures have been taken especially in commercial sectors to promote eco-friendly products. And colour coated metal roofing sheets is a step forward to minimize the use of harmful products. If you are planning to implement colour coated roofing sheets to provide roof insulation or thermal insulation to your workplace or houses, then it is recommended to get a consultation from the insulation contractors. As implementing sheets requires precision and many deciding parameters to taken care before installing the sheets.
