Why Go for Insulated Panel Roofing?

Australia’s harsh weather can challenge the durability and longevity of traditional roofing materials. Using standard materials could be expensive in the long run, especially when you have to do frequent repairs and replacements. Choosing insulated panel roofing can be more cost-effective while ensuring quick installation without the need to build additional structural support, insulation, sarking, plasterboard, mesh, purlins, and trusses. Here are more reasons to consider them:

Durable and resistant to harsh conditions

Also known as sandwich panel roofing, insulated roof panels are revolutionary structural solutions combining insulation, the ceiling, and the roof in one, making them thermally efficient and extremely weather-tight. High-quality insulated polycarbonate roof panels are durable and can resist harsh weather conditions while possessing high insulation R values, meaning they can effectively resist heat flow. The panels are made of non-combustible steel, making them helpful in preventing fires from spreading. It’s a great feature when your area is prone to wildfires.

Design flexibility

Insulated panel roofing is available in different designs, colours, and finishes. Manufacturers and installers can customise modular widths, too. That means you can customise your roof to suit your aesthetic needs. Installers will work with you and consider the properties of your building to calculate the appropriate size, especially for the insulation thickness.

Something for every need

Insulated polycarbonate roof panels can be installed on a roof or wall. They are available in different weights, thermal insulating materials, sound insulation and fire-resistant properties. Manufacturers use cores like EPS (expanded polystyrene), rigid cellular plastic, PIR (polyurethane), polyisocyanurate, or mineral wood.

Better lifespan

The load-carrying capacity of the insulated panel roofing must be based on the load it will carry, environmental conditions, technical specifications of the components, and design. These factors will affect the longevity of every panel. High-quality insulated polycarbonate roof panels should last at least 20 years, but you should conduct routine maintenance, cleaning, and checks at least once a year to prolong their lifespan.
