Why Steel Roofing is Opt for Auckland Climate
Auckland definitely has its fair share of cold weather, and with it comes the increased chance of snow. With that said, Auckland’s climate requires a type of roofing material that people can depend on, all year long – steel roofing. It’s true, steel roofing is the best type of roofing material for New Zealand, for more than a few good reasons, here are some of them below:
Evenly distributes weight – steel metal roofing is constructed in a way that water and snow is evenly distributed, so that the effects of gravity more evenly spreads out weight across the roof, making it less likely to result in the failure of any steel roof panels.
Watertight – actually, compared to other traditional roofing material, when sealant is applied to the surface and underlying areas of steel roofing it effectively prevents leaks, even when roof panels have been lightly damaged.
Effectively regulates temperature – using COLORBOND® roofing not only increases the weather-proofing capabilities of steel roof sheets, but it makes them last longer too. Adding an additional layer of colour protection to steel roofing is an effective means to regulate the temperature of a building. Darker paint colours like grays, browns and reds absorb more heat from the sun, to warm homes in areas where it is mostly cold weather, or, lighter colours can be used to repel heat.
Looks better and lasts longer – not only does high-grade COLORBOND® paint adds to a building’s aesthetic appeal, but the extra layer of protection also adds to the longevity of steel roofs too, making them hardier and more resistant to weathering.
Low maintenance – when compared to other roofing materials, steel roofing is definitely low maintenance and cheaper to repair. This makes installing steel roofing an ideal alternative to pricier concrete and porcelain tiles.
