Why Choose Zinc Roofing?

Many residential and commercial properties throughout Australia choose zinc roofing sheets as their material of choice. It provides a clean and sleek appearance. It can easily match the durability and versatility of other metal roofing like steel and aluminium.  It can also withstand harsh Australian weather. Unlike other metal roofing materials, however, zinc doesn’t need extra coatings as protection against harsh weather conditions.

Consider these reasons to invest in zinc roofing:

  • Superior Waterproofing

The distinctive corrugated look of zinc roofing isn’t simply an aesthetic feature. Those ribbed features add waterproofing protection — it stops the rain from flowing across the roof and, instead, redirects the rain flow in a specific direction.

  • Unmatched Toughness

Zinc roofing does not degrade easily due to harsh UV rays. It has self-healing features, meaning it can protect itself against minor scratches and damages. Additionally, zinc roofing materials features corrosion resistance.

How Do You Select the Right Zinc Roofing?

Tile Importer is committed to superior customer service. So in addition to sourcing the best roofing materials, we help you choose the right type of roofing based on your building type or construction project.

Here are some factors to consider when choosing the right zinc roofing product:

  • Colour and finish that match your architectural design
  • Building regulations at your location
  • Environmental factors at the location

We’re always eager to give professional advice to help you get your money’s worth. Come to us anytime for enquiries about the right zinc roofing products for your project.

How Do You Maintain Zinc Roofing?

Zinc roofing sheets are generally low maintenance. They can be exposed to the harshest weather conditions and the strongest winds; they’ll retain their form and functionality. But even though you can basically leave the roof alone, regular cleaning is still important to get rid of any dirt or particles that might settle on the surface.

The minimal maintenance required for zinc roofing includes the following:

  • Regular removal of leaves, grass, twigs and other small debris that end up on the roof
  • Regular inspection to check that the roof is clear and nothing is blocking the gutters
  • Usage of clean footwear before getting on the roof for inspections and repairs

Zinc roofing doesn’t need to be cleaned regularly. But if necessary, clean it using mild detergent and warm water. Pressure washers might not be necessary.
