When you are the proud owner of a holiday home, you need to make sure that you can protect it and maintain it as much as possible. One of the best ways to keep the roof of your holiday home well-maintained is to use metal roofing. With the right materials, you can get exactly what you need from your roofing, and Ricky Jenner Plumbing, Roofing and Guttering are here to offer you advice on finding the perfect metal.
By far, the most common type of metal roof in Australia is made from steel. Not only are these tough, durable and less liable to holes and failures than tile roofs, but it can also last for up to 40 years, and even the paintwork can endure for 20 years, making it the ideal solution for holiday homeowners who don't want to have to regularly maintain their roof.
When you require something more attractive than painted steel, you might consider those clad with copper or zinc. Just like steel, they are strong and durable, but they can also acquire an extremely attractive patina that will keep you going for longer. If you want to use this type of cladding, then you need to make sure that you find a high quality roof from Ricky Jenner Plumbing, Roofing and Guttering.
Another option when it comes to securing a roof on your holiday home is to use corrugated iron. These metal roofs can be painted to protect them, and they may be useful if your holiday home is in an area prone to bushfires. This is because unlike terracotta tiles, which are less secure from embers, tin roofs are resistant to fires.
Choosing pre-painted roofs
If you want to give your roof the best look, then you should consider Colorbond roofs from Ricky Jenner Plumbing, Roofing and Guttering. These products are pre-painted, which not only protects them from corrosion by saltwater, but also reduces the amount of maintenance required.
