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.
Lastly, the quality of installation is just as important as the quality of the metal and the machinery used to stamp it. The lifespan of your roof depends on the skills and experience of the team responsible for installation. At Metal-Tech, we offer professional advice on selecting and installing metal tiles, including which screws and additional elements are necessary for your roof, how to properly install skylights, and how to bypass chimneys to prevent snow, rain, and moisture from damaging your roof.
In conclusion, by investing in high-quality metal tiles and choosing a reputable manufacturer and installation team, you can ensure that your roof will provide durable and long-lasting protection for your home or business.
