A house without a roof is not a house at all. And various types of ceilings are used to cover it: soft and hard, rolled and piece, flat and profile. Some of them are better than country mansions and dachas, others are better than city houses and other outbuildings. To make a specific choice, you need to have an idea about the characteristics of each roofing material. Metal tiles-strong, beautiful, but noisy Profiled flooring (profiled flooring, profiled flooring), like the previous material, is made of cold-rolled hot-dip galvanized steel. Sometimes the metal is taken thicker than the metal tile. The plates can have both a rectangular and a wavy profile. On all sides they are covered with a layer of aluminum or zinc. There is an additional polymer screen on top. The profile can have the shape of a trapezoid, a wave or a rectangle. Ondulin is environmentally friendly, waterproof, but flammable This coating attracts with its naturalness and price.
What you need to know when buying roofing material The choice of material for the roof depends on many factors. First of all, these are the total loads on the roof. It must withstand a lot of precipitation (snow) and wind exposure. The weight of the coating itself should be selected in such a way that there is no excessive load on the truss system. No less important are the operational characteristics of the material: durability, mechanical strength, corrosion resistance, fire safety. The choice of material for the roof of a house is influenced by the configuration of the roof. Not every coating is suitable for facing surfaces of complex geometric shapes. The purpose of the structure also determines the type of coating. For a residential building, durability plays a primary role, and in the case of an economic construction, economy will be a priority. Price is the next factor that affects the choice of roof material. It, in turn, consists of the cost of the coating itself and the costs of its installation. The aesthetic aspect of the choice of roofing material for the roof also needs to be taken into account. Let's consider the most commonly used types of modern roofing materials. Sheet roofing coverings The main advantages of sheet roofing materials are ease of installation and, as a result, relatively inexpensive laying. The reverse side of the coin is that the sheets cannot be used for facing roofs of complex configuration, for example, with turrets, a large amount of waste remains during installation. Metal tile These are sheets of galvanized steel with a double-sided polymer coating, the pattern and surface relief of which imitate natural tiles. Metal tiles are universal: they are used in the construction of any low-rise buildings. This material can be laid even on top of an old roof. But at the same time, the angle of inclination of the roof when facing should be at least 12°. The service life of the metal roof covering is about 15 years. The undoubted advantages of this material are ease of installation, mechanical strength, fire safety, relatively low cost, a wide range of colors and textures of the polymer coating. The main disadvantage of metal tiles is the almost complete absence of noise insulation. Asbestos-cement slate Traditional slate is made of cement with the addition of asbestos fibers. The sheets can be flat and wavy, unpainted and colored. Despite the variety of roofing materials for the roof, the position of slate in the construction market is still strong. It is used for facing the roofs of buildings of all types and purposes. The minimum angle of inclination of the roof when installing slate sheets is 12°. The service life of such a coating is 20-30 years. Slate roof has a number of advantages: in addition to the ease of installation, it is a low price, fire safety, good electrical and sound insulation. But the disadvantages of the coating are very significant. First of all, it is unsafe for health — asbestos is considered a carcinogen, as well as fragility and high weight. Pay attention In a number of countries, the use of asbestos cement sheets is prohibited due to their potential health hazard. But, despite the ongoing disputes about the dangers of slate, this material is still widely used in Russia. Ondulin These are wavy sheets of cellulose fibers impregnated with bitumen. The outer side has a colored polymer coating. Due to a number of features, ondulin is mainly used in the construction of small buildings for economic and technical purposes. The installation of the sheets is carried out on the crate, the angle of the roof slope should be at least 6°. It is allowed to lay them on the old coating. The roof made of ondulin will last up to 20 years. One of the advantages of this material is its low weight, affordable price, resistance to atmospheric influences. But the ondulin roof does not look too aesthetically pleasing, besides, the color of the coating may change over time. One square meter of ondulin will cost an average of 250 rubles. Profiled flooring It is a corrugated steel sheet with a color coating or galvanized. Their profile can be different. The sheets of profiled flooring are easily mounted on a crate and connected to each other. The advantages of the material are the same as those of metal tiles: strength, low weight, affordable cost. Of the disadvantages, in addition to the lack of sound insulation, we will mention rather low decorative qualities. Seam roof A fold is a special type of snap-on connections of metal elements from which this type of roof is made. Fastening is carried out not with nails, but due to special bends along the edges of the sheet. The technology of installation of a seam roof is quite complex. The roof of this type is very reliable and durable, completely eliminates leaks, is suitable for all types of roofs and looks aesthetically pleasing. Disadvantages of a seam roof are low noise insulation, high heat and electrical conductivity. Roofing piece materials They are separate small elements that, when joined, form the roof web. These are the best materials for the roof of roofs of non-standard configurations. When facing with a piece material, practically no waste is generated.
