Outdoor Buildings in the UK

Corrugated roofs are a very popular option in the UK for almost any outdoor building, be it on a sports ground or on your own garden. This is partly because it is cheaper to purchase large single sheets of roofing material rather than small individual tiles, but is also because the corrugating design makes channels which encourage water to run off the roof, another big advantage when outdoor buildings in the UK need to cope with extreme weather conditions. The problem is finding roofing materials which will work well in your chosen climate and type of building. If you know the climate of your area, and the types of temperature you expect, then you can get this information from the local weather website. But if not, or if you just want some advice anyway, then here are some suggestions. This link

Which Ones Are Best suited to Your Needs?

Corrugated metal sheets, sometimes known as sheet metal roofing are the most common in the UK. They come in a range of different thicknesses, and depending on where you live they may be suitable for your climate. You can find corrugated sheet metal sheets in a wide range of different colours – blue being the most common. These sheets are made from steel, aluminium or other metal, and as a result they are lightweight, easily portable and extremely durable. They are also flexible to boot, and so can easily be used and stacked, making them great for construction sites and mobile home parks.

Next on the list are tin tile roof panels. Tin roofing panels are made from a metal alloy which reacts to the sun’s heat and heats up, which in turn makes the panel rigid, and stops it expanding in all but the most extreme circumstances, and is therefore perfect for hot climates. It is available in a range of different colours and sizes, and because of its durability, is suitable for many applications. It is light weight, cost effective and very strong, and as such is often found in garden buildings, particularly on patios. If you have a design that requires added stability, and can withstand sudden weather changes, then this may be the ideal choice.
