Roof Sheeting

If you are thinking of installing a new roof or remodelling your factory, you should consider IBR roofing. Property Owners think little about IBR roof sheeting when planning for their structures, but this option can be cost effective and energy efficient. The reason many people do not buy certain roofing materials is that such materials do not come in custom different dimensions. IBR sheeting is available in both standard and custom dimensions, so you can get any size depending on your needs.

Standard sizes range from 1.5 m to 14 m. However, you can also get the sheeting with up to 20 meters in length. You will need to order such dimensions to suit your unique roofing needs. When buying standard lengths, you need to know that the permissible variance in length should be between -0 +5 mm. manufacturers have sheets that are outside these measurements, but they can only deliver this type of IBR roof sheeting on special request and may be available at different prices. The maximum height of IBR sheeting that can be transported is 4.3 metres. Therefore, you should consider this aspect when designing bullnoses and curves the roof pitch

The roof pitch is critical when planning to install a roof for any type of building. Whether you are building a residential or commercial roof, the right roof pitch is recommended. Experts recommend that the minimum pitch for any roof of more than 30 metres should be a slope of 7.5 degrees while roof slopes of less than 30 m should have a minimum pitch of 5 degrees. If you are purchasing IBR roof sheets, which are end lapped, you should mind the right pitch to avoid problems such as early leaks. For roof pitches that exceed 15 degrees, you need to have curves of up to 150 mm. For other roofs, you will need to create 250mm roof pitches. You should create 100 mm end laps to ensure that all side laps that are present on low-pitched roofs are watertight.
