The choice of the roof model starts at the beginning of the project, as some aspects must be observed, such as: climate, budget and architectural style. Another important factor is the material used in the roof model.
There should not be any doubt or stress about the roof material and model because we will clarify your doubts, with tips and guide about Remarkable Roofing & Construction. Let’s start by looking at the most common materials in each roof model:
Ceramic Roof Model
Ceramics is an ancient material, but still in use. The problem with ceramic tiles is their laborious application and their fragility, but they are very beautiful. Ceramic tiles can be replaced by PVC tiles, these imitate ceramic, are much lighter and do not break as easily.
Note in the project above that there are two types of roofs, one traditional, apparently with PVC tiles, and the other polycarbonate. Two totally opposite styles, one modern and the other traditional that speak to each other.
In the modern roof models, these days, the polycarbonate boards are installed in the wooden structure.
Contrary to popular belief, the roof model with polycarbonate protects from the sun’s rays (100% blocking of UV rays). Polycarbonate does not absorb heat, so even on the hottest days, the environment will be at a pleasant temperature. In addition, the polycarbonate roof model is economical, as the lightness of the material provides savings in terms of application and structure.
Fiber cement tiles guarantee savings
Fiber cement is a material that is more resistant than ceramic, economical and easy to apply. A wooden or steel structure is enough for this roof model to be assembled. Fiber cement allows for perforations, so it is fastened to the structure with screws.
Sustainability and innovation for your roof
Sustainable projects are on the rise and are gaining more and more followers. Green roofs are very functional, as in addition to their aesthetic value, they also promote temperature control and acoustic comfort.
