Why Steel Roofing.
Why LYSAGHT Steel Roofing is the Smart Choice
Whether you're building a new home, renovating your family home or replacing your current roof, steel roofing offers a range of smart and practical benefits that other roofing materials can’t match.
Superior Performance –
Rain, Hail or Shine
Because steel sheets form a single roof surface from ridge to gutter, unlike layers of tiles, they are extremely weather resistant.
Where other roofing materials may break in severe hailstorms and allow water to enter the roof, steel roofing will remain intact.
LYSAGHT steel roof sheeting won’t hold the heat like cement or concrete tiles, meaning your roof and home cool more quickly in summer.
The strength of LYSAGHT® steel roofing allows for long spans that let you to create more open living spaces in your home.
Because steel is fire-resistant, termite-proof and won’t warp, you’re ensured long-life, durable performance.
Steel roofing sheets are securely fixed to every roof batten, unlike tiles that can be lifted to gain entry to your home.
With LYSAGHT® steel roofing you have the choice of a wide range of attractive profiles and colours to suit any home, unlike tiles that offer limited variations in look and colour.
It can be curved and shaped, and used on roof pitches as low as one degree, giving you greater freedom in roof design.
The relatively light weight of steel roofing gives you greater flexibility in locating internal walls and creating open living spaces.
Quick & Efficient
Because steel is a relatively lightweight material your roof may require less structural support, meaning reduced construction time and material savings.
Less weight also means less stress on the building’s structure, minimising the risks of your walls cracking and roof sagging.
Unlike tiles that require additional equipment and handling, construction is quicker and easier with steel roofing as it can be lifted on site in long lengths - simplifying installation and reducing labour costs.
