The erection of the building's box ends with a roof covering. At this stage, the developer has a question of choosing the material for the future roof. One of the most popular, beautiful and reliable roofing in Russia is metal roofing. The size of the sheet from different manufacturers differs from each other, as well as the color and thickness. But the practicality of this material does not cause such damage.
Metal tile: coating types
Any roof covering is laid to protect the dwelling from the effects of climatic and atmospheric factors. But then the question arises as to why the types of such a product as metal tile differ so much. Sheet size, price - these values for the products of different manufacturers will differ. Let's try to answer this question.
In addition to the natural demand (roof), this material is used for erecting fences, fences, covering canopies. This is explained quite simply: high performance, democratic price. But not only that is good metal. The size of its sheet, as already mentioned, is not always standard, while the weight of one square meter is approximately 5 kg. If you compare with ceramic tiles, you can see obvious advantages. The weight of the "great-grandmother" of modern material is from 40 to 70 kg (square meter). It can be concluded that this characteristic also influenced the final cost of the roof, since transportation is cheaper. As a plus, you can consider the availability of parts. These are drains, and skirting boards, and much more.
What else is good metal? The size of its sheet depends on the manufacturer, in which quality both Russian firms and foreign ones act. Both those and others on the market represent more and more products of different colors and shades. Develop the newest composite materials, which not only extend the service life, but also in structure more resemble the natural analogue. But the standard size sheet of metal tile found in stores will not succeed. Because of the absence of such. If there is a need to calculate the amount, then forcibly you will first have to decide with the manufacturer.
