How many downpipes must be connected to the gutters?
If the surface of the roof slope is less than 10 sq. meters, then you can install one downpipe and bring several gutters to it with a corresponding slope. If the surface of the roof slope is more than 10 sq. meters, then two or more downpipes should be installed, and the slope of the gutters in the direction of these pipes should be ensured.
What is the optimal length for roofing sheets?
Please note that the roofing sheets are installed so that their lower edge protrudes approximately 40–45 mm beyond the edge of the eaves. This provides sufficient ventilation space in the area of the ridge.
Does the roof warranty also cover other products, such as roof safety features, accessories and gutters?
A separate warranty covers gutter systems and roof safety elements; roof gutters on both sides come with a 10-year warranty.
Why is it necessary to ventilate the under-roof space?
Ventilation of the roof space is necessary when using any type of roofing material. The fact is that the air in the room warms up and begins to rise. In the under-roof space, the temperature is usually much lower than in the room, and condensation forms due to air cooling. If the under-roof space is not ventilated and the condensation is not eliminated, it can wet the thermal insulation layer. As a result, thermal insulation can lose its useful qualities. Subsequently, moisture can penetrate walls and ceilings and cause mould and mildew to form on wooden surfaces. In addition, if you do not ventilate the under-roof space, then ice and icicles can form on the roof. And, of course, the role of ventilation in summer, when the ambient temperature is elevated, is of no small importance.
How often do you need to take care of your metal tile?
Good day! A huge plus of metal tiles is the lack of post-assembly processing. This type of roofing practically does not need additional maintenance. Once every 5-7 years, it is necessary to wash the coating with water; you can use special detergents in case of severe contamination. However, you should only choose those cleaning agents that do not contain elements that could damage the roofing.
What color of the roof to choose?
