Go Design Solutions drafting design services in Sydney with three popular residential roofing choices
Here at Go Design, our experts in residential design in the Sutherland Shire explain that there are a myriad of choices when it comes to selecting the material for a roof.
Durability and protective properties are two of the most crucial elements to ensure the longevity of a roof and a house, but colour, style and climatic suitability certainly have important parts to play too.
Here are three of the materials that are raising the roof in popularity and style.
1. Terracotta roof tiles
Due to their individual profiles and extensive range, terracotta roof tiles are a flexible choice for roof design because they can complement a wide range of architectural specifications and styles. The clay-based ceramic tiles are hardwearing and provide a well-insulated roof surface that suits any climate.
2. Roof shingles
Our are similar to roof tiles but are flatter and much thinner. Manufactured as individual units, shingles are attached in an overlapping pattern to the topmost layer of the roof to help keep rain and moisture out of the building. Roof shingles can be made from all kinds of materials, including asphalt, wood, slate and terracotta. Our experts in drafting for residential extensions in the Sutherland Shire and StGeorge explain that ashpalt shingles are fire-proof, as well as being resistant to rain, hail and wind.
3. Corrugated Metal
Steel is the most popular roofing materials in Australia with corrugated iron also being a recognisable element in Australian architecture for more than 150 years. It requires little maintenance and can be used for many different architectural styles.
