Investing in a high-quality metal tile is essential for anyone looking for a durable and long-lasting roof. With so many options available on the market, choosing the right type of metal roofing can be a daunting task. At Metal-Tech, we understand the importance of selecting the right material for your roof and want to share our expertise with you.
When choosing a metal tile, it is crucial to focus on the manufacturer of the metal. Opt for a reputable company whose thin-sheet rolled steel is of high quality, with a thickness of at least 0.45 mm and a zinc coating layer of 180-200 grams per square meter. We recommend ArcelorMitall, a European-based company with plants in Germany, Poland, Belgium, and Slovakia, which produces top-quality sheet steel that meets these criteria.
The equipment used to stamp the metal tile is also an essential factor to consider. Poor-quality machines can ruin even the best metal, leaving visible gaps and joints between the sheets. Such a roof is not seamless and is more susceptible to moisture, precipitation, dust, and air currents, which can damage the under-roofing space of your roof, reduce insulation, and even lead to ceiling leakage. To avoid these issues, invest in a metal tile that has been stamped using calibrated and high-quality machinery.
