Why is it so important to have roof cladding on a commercial roof?

Roof cladding is an integral part of any commercial property as it serves 3 major purposes. These are:


Installing roof cladding can provide insulation on your roof that can help to regulate the internal temperature of the building. Insulation can also provide an extra layer of soundproofing which can be beneficial if your industry creates a lot of noise that could cause disturbance to the surrounding area. Additionally, insulation from roof cladding also has the added bonus of providing a level of fire resistance to your building. This is dependable on the type of cladding you have, but Roofclad is able to advise you accordingly.

Weather Protection

Another great bonus of adding roof cladding to your building is that it can help to protect your building from the weather elements. Not only is roof cladding a waterproof layer that prevents moisture build-up in your roof’s surface but it can also provide additional internal protection. Excess sun, rain, wind and sub-zero temperatures can play havoc with commercial roofing and problems can occur without the extra layer of roof cladding. Extreme weather can penetrate roofs, cause cut edge corrosion and generally deteriorate your roof. By installing roof cladding, you can save on roof maintenance and repair costs in the long-run and significantly increase the lifespan of the roof.

Aesthetical Quality

Not only is roof cladding practical – it’s also aesthetically pleasing! The ideal thing about roof cladding is that it can be coated to match the existing aesthetic of your building! Therefore, roof cladding can also help increase the overall appeal of your building.
