ELC Roofing are trained in the application of Zinc Roofs. These are a popular option with flat roofing due to the durability of the material, and for the obvious aesthetic benefits.
Zinc can be laid to any roof, as long as the pitch of the roof is above 3 degrees, it can also be laid in valleys as long as the pitch of the valley exceeds 14 degrees. Zinc cannot just be laid to a roof without looking at the under construction, (build up) of the roof. What lies underneath a Zinc roof is more important than the zinc itself, because if this is done incorrectly the zinc is not worth fitting, as it will not last.
Zinc has been around for hundreds of years and still has no rivals to its longevity. Zinc requires very little or no maintenance and in the long term will add value to your home. As zinc is applied in sheets it is very versatile and can be adapted to many shapes and also allows for fine detailing to be applied to the roof.
There are a multitude of different finishes to choose from such as natural zinc (bright), this is marginally cheaper in price as it has not been treated. Other colours include shades of grey, blue/grey, quartz, graphite or Anthracite. There are also subtle colours such as a quartz grey with a hint of colour (blue, green or red) and finally Bio-lacquered zincs that offer a bold, bright colour. Zinc is a popular material in both traditional and modern designs and is both durable and elegant.
At ELC Roofing we use VM Zinc, which we believe is the best Zinc on the market. We have our own special machinery to aid the quality of the roofs we provide, by being able to carry out a lot of the works at our yard.
