What to keep in mind?

  • PRICE – find out if the offered price is per square meter, meter of coverage or meter of sheet used, and whether it includes tax.
  • PRICE OF THE ENTIRE ROOF – if you calculate the required amount of sheets and accessories incorrectly, it might lead to substantial differences in price. In order to limit costs pay attention to how much excess material is generated by the covering system you are interested in purchasing.
  • THE COMPETENCES OF THE CONTRACTOR – inadequate assembly results in a void warranty. Your contractor has to be properly qualified in order for the job to be correctly completed and in case of any potential product complaints.
  • SHEET THICKNESS– product thickness cannot be less than 0.5 mm.
  • COATING THICKNESS – in case of galvanized sheet metal, the zinc coating should not be thinner than 275 g/m2. The varnish should not be thinner than 25 µm. If the above specifications are not adhered to, it will directly affect durability and visual appeal of used products.
  • VISUAL APPEAL – sheet conservation will prevent darkening and discoloration.
  • SAFETY DURING STORMS – a properly assembled steel roof covering protects the roof from damages or breaks during strong storms due to lack of visible connections between sheets.
  • ASSEMBLY TIME – the assembly of trapezoidal sheets is easy and quick; you therefore save time and money.
  • WEIGHT – sheets do not weigh much so the construction does not require special reinforcements, as in the case with ceramic tiles. The foundations and walls do not have to endure large loads. The construction site does not have to fulfill special requirements, which translated into savings. The standard weight of a steel roof is approx. 700 kg.
  • TRANSPORTATION– use specialized transportation which fulfills manufacturer’s requirements to avoid damages during delivery.
