Commercial Roofing Contractors in Perth

Posted: 9th April 2015

There are many reasons a building might need to replace its roof. Many roofing materials prior to the start of this millennium contained the mineral asbestos, which is dangerous and can cause mesothelioma. Roofing is exposed to the elements and can wear out fairly quick due to rain and hail. Tiles are easily torn up by the wind and leaks can occur. Whatever the reason, Perth commercial roofing contractors can easily replace bad roofing.

There are many benefits to replacing the roofing of a building, besides removing hazardous materials or stopping leaks. Many of the roofing materials used nowadays are usually made of steel or polymers. These substances are more durable and weather resistant than traditional materials. Replacing the roofing with these materials can also drastically reduce heating and cooling costs. They are a great investment that can help tons of money in the future.

There are two types of steel roofing commonly used by commercial roofing contractors; one contains tin and the other has aluminium and zinc coatings. These materials are very resistant to weathering and the coating will prevent warping and rust wherever there are cut edges. Steel does not contain any hazardous minerals and is one of the strongest materials produced by industrial nations. It is also one of the best for maintaining temperature within a structure.

Ampelite is the industry name for clear roofing materials made of a carbon polymer. Carbon is what diamonds are made of, after being subjected to extreme heat and pressure. Diamonds are the hardest substance currently known to mankind. While the roofing is not actually made of diamonds, it is one of the greenest materials available on the market. Carbon does not rust, so it has a slight advantage over steel materials.
