Advantages of curved roofing sheet

 

Visually appealing

Flat and gable roofs have been some ordinary choices, so far. That is why curved roofing panels makes distinct look in many structures that people like. As rounded edge changes the beauty and quality of the designs, it is considered one of the main reason for choosing curved sheets in exterior cladding and roofing.

 

Structural Efficiency

Curved roofing distribute the weight and forces of both the sheet and external impacts more evenly. This means more stability and resistance to external forces such as wind, snow, and foot traffic.

Faster installation

Faster installation

As in most cases, curved roofing is built with a prefabricated sheet, it takes shorter amount of time to be installed- even though the installation steps seem to be more complicated.

 

Better control for water movement

The curved shape of the roof makes drainage of rainwater more efficient-which can prevent water accumulation and leakage damage. This require less maintenance and repairs.

 

Natural light and better ventilation

Curved roofing sheet can maximize natural light and penetrate deeper inside. Besides, shape of curved roofs can do natural ventilation by better air flow and circulation patterns.

Not with all kinds of materials, but with most of construction sheets you can have arched roof. Tiles and shingles, composite, UPVC, PVC are just some of the examples. Curvy roof are mostly like gambrel or domed shapes. The amount of sheet bending depends on the type of curved roofing material and the design of your building. UPVC and metal are two materials that can bend very well. There are some drawbacks on metal roofs including rust and corrosion over time – even the galvanized roof covers. Skill is required for the manufactures to bend and install the sheets/tiles properly according to the regulations and complexity of the designs.
