Having a new roof installed definitely makes its way to the top of the list when it comes to the most stressful times in our lives. From strict time frames to relying on new workers, there are so many things that can go wrong. Here at Valent Roofing, we want our readers and clients to understand what goes into designing an industrial roof which is why we have put together some of the most important things that should be considered when you are trying to choose a material…

Durability and Maintenance

When something is durable, it is able to withstand a lot of pressure or damage so in order to ensure that you receive the best roof possible, you will want to make sure that the material you choose to construct it from is highly durable. After all, a roof is your buildings first line of defence against the weather and many other extreme conditions. In addition to this, you will also want to look for a material that requires little maintenance so that you aren’t shelling out for repairs every year.

Installation Cost

Since each material differs from one another, it is only right to assume that some materials cost more money to install than others. After all, the companies that install roofing have to take into consideration the amount of time it takes for a particular material to be put into place, the manual labour that will be required, the difficulty of the task and the size of the roof before they give you an installation price.

Colour

You may find the perfect material however it is the colour of it that matters. After all, it is important to consider the environment that your roof will be living out its life in. For example, industrial buildings in warmer climates are more suited to light colours and reflective roofing in order to push the heat away so that money is saved on cooling in the longer term whereas buildings in colder places will need to adopt darker colours in order to absorb as much heat as possible and insulate a building
