Metal roofing is particularly popular in Conshohocken (as in the rest of the world). It is cost-efficient, reliable and beautiful. This material has excellent strength characteristics, and a large selection of metal roofing allows the owner to create the most unique coatings.
There are various types of metal roofing:
- flat or sheet, gathered by folding technology;
- a various profile metal for a roof - this includes the profiled sheeting and a metal tile.
By type of material metal roofs are divided into steel coatings and non-ferrous metal coatings.
Another common coating is asphalt roofing. It is a soft multi-layered plate with a thickness of 3-5 mm. The basis is fiberglass (in variants where the price is low, cellulose base is used) impregnated with a polymer-bitumen composition containing mineral filler. The upper (outer) part of the tile is covered with colored stone chips (basalt or slate), it serves as a protection and determines the look of the tile. The bottom surface is partially covered with an adhesive layer and protected by a film. In some versions, the lower part is covered with fine silicon sand, the glue is partially applied on top.
Tile sheets of different manufacturers differ in size, but their length is often one meter. Width can vary between 30-35 cm. The service life of the metal and asphalt roofing is quite long.
