Importance Of New Roofing Materials
With so many roofing materials available, you may feel the condition of your property is never at risk. However, the installation of new roofs and using the right materials should always be important. Although roofing materials do not have to be changed regularly, finding the best quality material for your home must be a priority.
At Clark Roofing Ltd, there is a selection of roofing materials that can be installed on any property, including:
Every material has their own advantages and disadvantages, making them suitable for each property and all types of weather. Clients are always advised on which roofing materials would be the best option for your property.
Having a new roof fitted will maintain and restore the best possible condition for your property. New roof installations and roofing materials will give you the insulation and great condition you have always desired.
Slate roofing if one of the most popular roofing types within the UK. As slate roofing is a material that is durable in typical English weather, it makes it ideal for any property. Not only can slate roofing provide durability to any property, but it also provides a luxury style to every home that other materials will not always provide. There are also two different types of slate roofing available:
Artificial slate roofing can still provide the style your home desires but is not made from the fine-grained rock which makes this material so durable and resistant to any types of weather. Slate is also extremely low maintenance, making it a great investment for the long-term.
Using natural stone roof slates creates a fantastic appearance for any property, with a traditional but historic effect of the slate. As slate roofing has been used for hundreds of years, it makes it the perfect option for any property looking to add their own personal touch.
Tiles are very similar to slate roofing, which also makes them very popular for all types of properties. With tiled roofs typically being made from concrete or clay, there is a wide variety of choice that you do not receive with other roofing materials. Whereas slate roofing is most commonly dark colours, tiled roofing can be tailored to your desired colour.
Both concrete and clay tiles can provide you with a range of colour schemes and have a large life expectancy, maintaining a good roof condition for a long period of time. However, concrete tiles do offer several benefits to clay tiles, with each tile being bigger. This makes concrete tiles more efficient to install and causes minimal disruption to your property whilst being installed. Despite this, clay tiles are the obvious choice for smaller roofs or for chimneys, as they fit around the property easier.
Although lead roofing often plays as second fiddle to both slate and tiled roofing, it is still a good option when selecting your roofing materials. Much like tiled and slate, lead is durable against all weather types and poses little risk to your property being damaged, allowing leaks or simply falling apart. With lead requiring welding before being installed, it can often be slightly more expensive, but still offer the long-term benefits you desire.
In addition to being extremely durable, lead also provides:
- Flexible Material
- Resistant to Corrosion
- Watertight Installation
As lead expands and contracts based on the current temperature, this makes it sealed against any weathers. Although many follow the crowd and choose tiled and slate roofing, lead could provide up to 3 times the lifespan of other roofing materials. Lead will also reduce carbon emissions in the process.
