Roofing Sheets

Roofing Sheets

Roof sheets play an essential role in protecting the inside of your property from the harsh weather conditions outside.

They are also typically used when roofing tiles don't make much sense. Though their primary purpose is to keep moisture from entering your indoor space, roof sheets have various applications, such as soundproofing and insulation.

At JJ Roofing Solutions, we have over 3,000 (and counting) different roofing sheets from the most renowned brands in the industry, including Ariel Plastics, Clear Amber, Metrotile, and Marley, to name a few.

Why Do You Need Roofing Sheets?

Roofing sheets have several different applications. Some of the most common uses of roofing sheets include:

  • Add an extra layer of protection against rain, snow, hail, or sunlight
  • Make a building more energy-efficient and reduce energy bills
  • Make a building more fire-resistant
  • Make a building more soundproof
  • Provide more structural support

That said, please note that not every roofing sheet is a suitable option for all of the purposes mentioned above. Depending on the material it is made of, the roofing sheet in name will have a designated purpose. For instance, corrugated roofing sheets are commonly used for waterproofing sheds, carports, and similar structures.
To learn more about what type of roofing sheet you'll need for your project, let's look at the different roof sheet materials and their use.

Roof Sheet Materials

At JJ Roofing Supplies, the roofing sheets we stock are made out of a variety of materials, including:

Bitumen

Bitumen roof sheets are made out of a substance produced through the distillation of crude oil. As a result, bitumen roofing sheets are extremely waterproof, great at insulating, and fantastic at soundproofing. Not only that, but they're an affordable and cost-effective solution.
That's why bitumen roofing sheets are commonly used for garden sheds, garages, stables, and other non-residential buildings and structures. What's more is that if you install your bitumen sheet roofing properly, there's a high chance it'll last for several decades, far outliving traditional roof tiles, even in the harshest weather conditions.

Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate roofing sheets are made out of strong plastic material. As a result, these plastic roof sheets can withstand various weather conditions, are lightweight, and are easy to install. Moreover, due to how affordable this strong plastic material is, polycarbonate roof sheets are also one of the most cost-effective options.
With an average life expectancy of 20 years, polycarbonate roofing sheets are the perfect choice for any type of greenhouse and outbuilding, such as a summerhouse, shed conversion, and conservatory, to name a few.

Metal

There aren't many materials that can provide the same durability and longevity as metal. While metal roof sheets are not the most cost-effective nor easiest to install option, the 40+ year life span of metal roofing sheets makes them worthwhile.
Although this type of roofing solution is most commonly used for industrial buildings that want maximum strength, it's also a popular option for residential property owners who want a long-lasting solution.

Acrylic (Plexiglass)

Plexiglass, also known as acrylic glass, is a material that roofing sheets are sometimes made of. It's half the weight of traditional glass, weatherable, scratch-resistant, and optically clear. As a result, acrylic roof sheets are most commonly used where more natural light is desired. Depending on the harshness of the weather conditions and how well they're maintained, standard acrylic roof sheets can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years.

PVC

PVC roofing sheets are made of polyvinyl chloride, a white, brittle solid. They're a reliable and robust solution with various applications, making it a popular choice amongst residential and commercial property owners looking for a sturdy, lightweight, and cost-effective solution.
If you’re wondering how long PVC roof sheets last, their average lifespan is around 30 years. As a result, it's easy to see why they’re are a popular choice among thousands of our customers.

Fibre Cement

Fibre cement roofing sheets are made of Portland cement, a combination of limestone, iron, clay, sand, and cellulose fibres. This type of roofing sheet is incredibly durable and has an estimated lifespan of over 50 years.
It's available in various colours and finishes, complementing almost any building. Moreover, fibre cement roof sheets boast several benefits not shared by other materials, including eco-friendliness, moisture resistance, and breathability.

Advantages of Using Roofing Sheets

There are many reasons why roofing sheets are popular among our trade and commercial customers. Some of the advantages of using roofing sheets include:

They're Cost-Effective

Compared to roof tiles, roofing sheets are a significantly more cost-effective solution. This is because they can be made from various materials, including plastic, which is significantly more affordable than clay or cement. So, if you're looking for a roofing solution while on a budget, you should consider roof sheets

They're Easy to Install

Roof sheets are much larger compared to traditional roof tiles. As a result, you'll need far fewer of them to cover the entire roof area, making the installation process much faster and straightforward. Moreover, working with or cutting roof sheets doesn't typically require specialist tools, which is great news for DIY-ers.

They're Extremely Versatile

Since roof sheets come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, colours, finishes, materials, and profiles, they have various applications. Whether you're looking for a cost-effective roofing solution for your stable or a solid and long-lasting roof for a commercial facility, roof sheets are a great option to consider.

They're Durable & Long-Lasting

Depending on the material the roof sheets are made of, they can last anywhere from 10 to 50+ years when they're well maintained and looked after. And this isn't provided the weather outdoors is pleasant. We're discussing harsh weather conditions, including heavy rain, snow, hail, and wind.

Uses for Roofing Sheets

Due to the large number of different roofing sheets we have available, our customers buy our roofing sheets for a variety of different uses, including:

Garden Sheds & Outbuildings

Using traditional roof tiles to provide sufficient cover for a garden shed or another type of outbuilding often doesn't make sense. That's why one of the most common uses of roofing sheets is for garden sheds and outbuildings such as summerhouses, chicken coops, and workshops, to name a few.

Carports & Garages

Due to the affordable, easy-to-install, and long-lasting nature of roof sheets, they are often the preferred choice for homeowners looking to provide quality cover for their garages and carports. Besides the above, roof sheets are a popular choice for these structures because they can be installed on roofs with pitches as low as 5°.

Residential Buildings

Roof repairs can be slow, tedious, and expensive. And since roof sheets are more affordable and easier to install, they're often the preferred choice for homeowners over traditional roof tiles.

Commercial & Industrial Buildings

It's also not uncommon for commercial and industrial buildings such as offices and warehouses to rely on roofing sheets, and it's easy to see why. They're strong, reliable, easy to install, and typically more affordable when compared to other pitched roof materials. The combination of the above keeps project time and cost to a minimum, which is key for running a profitable business.

Agricultural Buildings

Barns, stables, and other agricultural buildings tend to have enormous roofs, making using roof sheets over roof tiles a no-brainer. They are easier, faster to install, and significantly more affordable, especially if made from less costly materials such as bitumen or polycarbonate.
