Question: Are steel roofs noisy in the rain?

Answer: Many people enjoy the sound of rain falling on their steel roof. For those who don’t, rain noise can be reduced if a foil and glass fibre blanket is used as the insulation material. This foil and glass fibre insulation blanket is installed between the roof frame and the roof sheeting and it performs two jobs. It keeps your home cool in summer and warm in winter, and it also acts as a sound deadening device, by reducing the amount of noise transmitted through to the inside of your home.

To find out more about our range of steel roof sheeting, speak to one of our roofing experts by calling 044 873 0627. #SupplyingYou


Question: Which roofing profile should I use?

Answer: The pitch of the roof is the biggest deciding factor. There are numerous trains of thought on this issue and the decision is based on numerous technical factors. However a very good rule of thumb is the following:

1-5 Degree fall: Concealed fix sheeting i.e. Snaplok or Diamondek
5-8 Degree fall: IBR
8+ Degree fall: Corrugated

Widek is a square fluted profile similar to IBR. However, Widek has a lower rib, which means it provides a greater cover width than IBR.

This results in an effective 10% saving in material costs over IBR. It also offers the same cover width as corrugated sheeting (762mm), but can be used at a lower pitch.

When choosing the fasteners to secure your roofing system, it’s important that you select those that are most suitable for the particular application. Using the incorrect class of fastener can affect the manufacturer’s warranty on your sheeting and substantially shorten the lifespan of your new roof.

We are proud stockists of Corroshield® roofing fasteners, which have a high resistance to corrosion and reduce installation times thanks to their self-drilling ability. This feature enables the fasteners to drill their own hole and tap their own thread into a timber or metal substrate.
