Metal tile: coating types

Any roofing covering is laid with a view toProtect the dwelling from the effects of climatic and atmospheric factors. But then the question arises as to why the types of such a product as metal tile differ so much. The size of the sheet, the price - these values ​​for the products of different manufacturers will differ. Let's try to answer this question.

What is a metal tile? This is a sheet of galvanized steel with a coating applied to it, protecting the metal from moisture. The form is given to it in aesthetic purposes by manufacturers similar to ceramic tiles. The last fact, most likely, influenced the popularity of the roofing material. And modern composites have made it more durable. There are four types of coating: polyester and matte, plastisol, pural. Roofing material treated with such composites has a different thickness. This, of course, can not but affect the cost of such a product, as metal. The size of the sheet, however, does not depend on the type of coating used.

In addition to the natural demand (roof),this material is also used for erecting fences, fences, covering canopies. This is explained quite simply: high performance, democratic price. But not only that is good metal. The size of its sheet, as already mentioned, is not always standard, while the weight of one square meter is approximately 5 kg. If you compare with ceramic tiles, you can see obvious advantages. The weight of the "great-grandmother" of modern material is from 40 to 70 kg (square meter). It can be concluded that this characteristic also influenced the final cost of the roof, since transportation is cheaper. As a plus, you can consider the availability of parts. These are drains, and skirting boards, and much more.

The service life determines the corrosion resistance of the material itself, the quality of the composite coating, and the durability of the dyes to ultraviolet. Most manufacturers sell metal roofing with a guarantee. On average, it is about 12 years. But the service life of steel sheet is about fifty years.

What else is good metal? The size of its sheet depends on the manufacturer, in which quality both Russian firms and foreign ones act. Both those and others on the market represent more and more products of different colors and shades. Develop the newest composite materials, which not only extend the service life, but also in structure more resemble the natural analogue. But the standard size of a sheet of metal is not found in stores. Because of the absence of such. If there is a need to calculate the amount, you will have to decide with the manufacturer initially.
