Roofing contractors in Perth

Posted: 2nd October 2014

The quality of the roof of a structure, whether it is a house or any other type of building, directly contributes to how well that structure can maintain temperature. A building with a bad roof will not maintain temperature, which means the heating and cooling bills can shoot up unexpectedly. Roofing contractors in Perth can either fix the roof and insulation or replace them both, especially if they contain deadly asbestos, which has been used for roofing in many older homes.

Asbestos has been used to make ceiling tiles, insulation, siding, and roofing, as well as a myriad assortment of other products. Simply living near these things is toxic to humans and can cause cancer, which is why it has been banned from being used in any products or building materials. Even though it has been banned, it still surrounds us on all sides, especially in older buildings that were constructed before the ban.

Considering how commonly it was used for construction, there are still many homes that contain asbestos. This is why it can be very important to replace the roof and siding of a building, or the very least get them checked. Qualified and licenced (in Asbestos Removal) Roofing contractors can do this type of thing as well as just replacing regular worn out roofing. There are a few materials that are preferred due to their water and heat resistance. Steel and clear sheeting are two of the most commonly used when constructing a new roof; they tend to be more resistant to weathering and rusting, as well as being the right kind of material to absorb the sun’s rays and maintain internal temperature. The clear sheeting is usually made with a tough carbon polymer, while the steel might contain zinc to help prevent rusting. Either can drastically reduce heating and cooling costs.
