In recent years, a large number of new roof tiles have entered the market, among which metal tile roofing systems, represented by metal composite tiles, have attracted much attention. What are the advantages to installing a metal roof? It is currently the most important issue for everyone.
What are the advantages of metal tile roofing systems?
In the past, our roofing tiles are generally used are clay tiles and cement tiles, this kind of tile just laid on when quite strong, but when a wind and rain will be easy to fall, less than two years will have to turn tile, he expectancy is too low, so many people began to choose to install metal roof.
Roofing is the umbrella over our heads that protects us from the wind and rain and requires direct contact with the outside world of rain, wind, lightning and sunlight. Therefore, the metal materials chosen for metal roofing systems are generally durable aluminium-manganese alloys, coated steel sheets, zinc sheets, etc. The weather resistance and waterproofing properties of these materials are significantly better than traditional waterproofing systems. Therefore, the service life of metal tile roofing systems is generally very long. The base material of metal tile is not exposed in the form of the same inverted waterproofing, because the asphalt material is not exposed, accepting no light, rain, snow and other erosion, its life is basically the same life as the building.
Metal generally has good plasticity, so metal tiles can be applied to a variety of complex shapes of roofing, such as hyperbolic, reverse curve, ball, cone, arc, etc.. The colour and texture of the metal tiles can be selected according to the different architectural styles and creative needs of different metal materials and construction practices to meet the needs of the maximum architectural creation.
The metal sheets are all good conductors and the metal tile roofing system they form is connected to an effective earth connection, which prevents damage from lightning.
The overall structure of the metal material is good, with a strong ability to adapt to deformation. Compared to traditional materials such as concrete, metal tiles are more easily adapted to changes in roof surface temperature and, provided the construction is properly designed, have good waterproofing and drainage properties.
Compared to traditional roofs such as reinforced concrete, metal tiles are lighter in weight and can reduce the structural load of the building, lowering the cost of the main structure and facilitating the transport and construction of materials. Through systematic design and construction organisation, installation is easy and quick, and construction quality is easily guaranteed. The recycling rate of metal tiles is high, which can effectively protect the environment and sustainable development.
