A1MAZING Roofing Services Ltd can inspect and offer suitable Cladding systems for all your roofing needs.

Roof CLADDING generally consists of large, corrugated sheets of metal overlapped at their edges to create a weather-tight covering. It tends to be fairly utilitarian in appearance and is therefore more popular in industrial construction than residential building. The composite panels consist of three layers, the top sheet is the surface of the roof followed by the insulation and the liner sheet which is seen from inside the building once the sheeting is fixed in place. Building regulations allow for an 80mm standard panel to offer sufficient thermal efficiency for a building which is measured as a U-value. A 60-70mm panel offers adequate U-values for the sides or cladding of a new building depending upon the specific design requirements for the cladding. Roof Sheeting & Cladding can consist of various panel types that offer different profiles, colours, finishes and styles. Lightweight metal roofing/cladding requires little ongoing maintenance, and, depending on the quality of the metal used and if expertly fitted by A1MAZING Roofing Services Ltd it can last more than 50 years.

Another type of building cladding is plain timber cladding (known as clapboarding or weatherboarding) and is used for houses, barn conversions, windmills and farm buildings. There are several different styles e.g. rough sawn timber (featheredge) which looks very rustic. There is also planed timber shiplap with it’s sophisticated and urban appearance. In it’s raw state. sawn timber needs maintenance treatment with wood stains in order to keep it looking good over the years. Red Cedar is the best-known timber cladding this cedar starts as a red/brown colour but goes a mellow silver/grey colour after a few years.

Cedar Shingles are another profile used for domestic/commercial roofing and cladding and look really good on summerhouses, gazebos, farm buildings and stables as well as church spires. The durable weather resistance to adverse conditions in exposed areas is also a contributing factor for considering cedar shingles as a reliable type of roofing and cladding.
