Roofing Materials in UAE
About Roofing Materials
Roofing materials are chosen based on the type of roof that is being installed and the type of facility that is being constructed. Some of the different types of roofing materials are metal, wood, asphalt, slate, green and clay. Metal roofing is mostly used for warehouses but they are also available in different styles for houses. This type of roofing material is chosen for the construction of warehouses because of their durability and resistance to termites and other wood-boring insects.
Asphalt is one of the most popular roofing materials and one of the most inexpensive roofing materials and is available in a wide range of colors and styles. They are resistant to fire and easy to repair if damaged. Wood offers a natural look and provides better insulation and is long lasting. Cement roofs are expensive when compared to other materials but extremely durable when maintained and are fireproof.
Clay is one of the most durable materials for roofing and is resistant to fire, rain, decay and mold. Green roofs are the latest technology and are manufactured with a special waterproof material. Green roofs are used as a support for plant growth and they act as a natural thermal insulator. Slate is a variety of stone which is split into thin sheets; these sheets make an ideal roofing material. Al Qusais in Dubai and Mussafah industrial area in Abu Dhabi are some of the most popular locations in UAE to get in touch with manufacturers and suppliers of roofing materials.
