Most roofers in Cardiff are used to providing a range of different kinds of roofing, due to the wide variety of buildings there are throughout South Wales. Wales is a country that has grown over hundreds of years and as such there are buildings of all ages and types, from period houses to modern commercial buildings. It is for this reason that most South Wales roofers have learned to be flexible and considerate to every customers’ roofing needs to ensure that a good quality job is done and guarantee a finish that every customer is happy with.
Metal cladding is a service that is offered by roofing companies in the area and is the metal exterior and interior coverings fastened to the structural framing, usually made of cold-formed steel sheeting but can also be made from aluminum or titanium. Soft metals such as copper, zinc, brass and bronze aren’t strong enough to be used in sheet form alone, and a layer of the metal is usually fastened over ply boards before they are fixed to the frame. Different finishes can be applied to different metals to avoid corrosion. Steel is often galvanised, which means it is coated with a thin layer of zinc. Aluminum can be anodised, which is a chemical process which bonds the protective coat to the top of the metal. Each metal has a different method of being protected from the elements, and a good roofing company will be able to advise you on the various pros and cons of each material used for metal cladding so that you can make an informed decision based on your needs and the budget you have available. Copper, brass, bronze and zinc are usually chosen for their looks and so are usually treated with powder to avoid covering up their colour and sheen.
