Essentially, roof cladding comes in two main types. There’s tile roofing, and then there’s metal roof cladding. Metal roof cladding is far more popular for new homes and renovations, however some people do still like the look of tiles. Importantly, owners of older homes may consider tiles because modern metal roofing simply wouldn’t match the rest of the house.
Within the metal roof cladding section, there are several different styles you can choose from. At first glance, the main differences are the raised ridges, whether they’re tall and spaced apart or quite low-profile and close together. There are plenty of variations out there, such as Corodek® which mimics the traditional corrugated iron look, through to Kliplok®, which features taller ridges and allows for thermal contraction and expansion.
Whichever type of roof cladding you choose, ensure that its durable and build to last, as well as looking great!
