Tile Effect Roofing Sheets FAQs
What are tile effect sheets?
Tile effect sheets are an innovative roofing solution expertly designed to replicate the charm and aesthetics of traditional roof tiles, such as clay, concrete, and slate, while eliminating their drawbacks. Crafted from robust galvanized steel, these sheets offer exceptional resistance to weathering, corrosion, and impacts, ensuring a long-lasting and durable roofing option. Moreover, their simple installation process makes them a convenient choice for your roofing needs.
How strong are tile effect roofing sheets?
Tile effect roofing sheets are constructed using robust galvanized steel, making them incredibly strong and providing excellent durability over time. These sheets offer your roof high impact resistance, maintaining stability even under foot traffic and harsh conditions. For added protection, the steel is coated with an acrylic polymer, effectively shielding it against rust, corrosion, and weathering, guaranteeing a worry-free roofing solution that can withstand adverse elements.
How to Fit Tile Effect Roof Sheets?
To properly fit tile effect roofing sheets, follow these steps:
1. Lay the sheets from left to right as they are designed to be tiled in one direction. Make sure to start with the overlapping edge so that the next sheet can overlap the underlapped side.
2. It is recommended to lay the sheets away from the prevailing wind to prevent wind whistling and water capillary. However, in some cases, this may not be possible with this profile.
3. Always remember that the unfinished castle should overlap the finished castle.
4. Use fixing screws to secure the sheets between the strengthening ribs in the valley of the sheet. It is advisable to fix them in the 1st, 3rd, and 5th trough (left, middle, right) for a symmetrical appearance and strong hold into the purlins. If possible, fix the screws in every purlin, but every two is sufficient for short purlin spacings.
5. For 0.5mm tile effect sheets, maintain a maximum purlin spacing of either 300mm or 600mm. Irregular purlin spacing may result in uneven laying of the tiles in the finished roof.
6. Stitch the sheeting overlaps to prevent water capillary. Stitching the overlapping castle every 300mm (each tile) is adequate, but you can also stitch it at 600mm (every 2 tiles) if necessary. Avoid using lap tape for this profile, but silicone can be used if desired.
7. Install ridge and barge flashings after fitting the sheets. Use stitching screws to secure the flashings into the castle of the sheeting.
8. Finally, consider fitting foam infills between the ridge end and eaves to prevent birds or vermin from entering the structure and to prevent wind from pushing anything through during poor weather conditions.
By following these steps, you can successfully fit tile effect roof sheets and achieve a secure and visually pleasing result.
