Why Metal Roofing?
why metal roofingMetal roofing has for many years offered attractive, durable, strong, and maintenance free services to a wide array of structures. In fact, major revolutionary changes have in the last decade been noticed in the metal roofing industry. High-tech finishes have in line extended the performance and the life of the roofing metal dramatically. More so, a lot of new roofing products including metal shingles, different colors, stone coated shingle tiles, classic tile, shake tiles and curved panels give buyers endless choices.
Did you know that metal roofing from orientile to versatile blends with any environment? Well, Royal Mabati ® is the “chameleon” roofing you have been looking for. It has finishes that look like ceramic tiles, shake, Victorian shingle, or composition shingle. But; this roofing is superior in that it is designed to last for at least 40 to 50 years and beyond. Compared to concrete tiles at 5 Kgs per square meter, metal roofing is way lighter weighing between 2 to 3 Kgs per square meter.  
What are the most superior elements that complete the make-up of metal roofing?
Wind Resistance
With the right installation, metal roofing has the capacity to hold up fast under intense wind conditions. This is completely incomparable to the traditional roofing materials. Studies show that this roofing can withstand wind gusts up to 140 mph making metal an ideal choice for those that live in wind prone stormy areas. Due to their construction, the roofing is highly wind resistant and hurricane proof. Also, they carry the highest strength to weight ratio compared to any other roofing material. The extreme wind resistance of metal roofing has been demonstrated in the hurricane areas of Florida.
Fire Resistance
Metal roofs are fire resistant and are often given a class ‘A’ fire rating meaning they are highly resistant to fire. A metal roof is a vital first line of defense against all kinds of fires. The truth is that if the house these sheets are employed on is not the origin of the fire, the house is likely to escape tragedy.
Hail Resistance
Hail has the tendency of moving in suddenly, ranging from light flakes to golf-ball projectiles. Should extreme hail in the highly prone areas accost a house, damage is likely to occur. However, once you have a heavier gauge panel installed, even sizeable hail is likely not to leave a mark. Should your structure suffer minor dents, the dents will with time be reduced by seasons of hot sun.
Finish
Can you refer to armor plating as sheet metal? Well, in the same context, you cannot refer to a metal roof as ‘painted’. Metal panels are not painted. They undergo an extensive multi-step finish process that is carried out in a coil coating plant. The procedure begins with metal coils entering an etching and cleaning process, and then zinc or galvanized treatment follows. What follows is that a primer/binder is flow-coated on the coil and finally baked to proper hardness. In the final stages, a color coat of a highly durable finish such as fluoropolymer resin is flowed on and factory baked dry.  Usually, a UV-resistant clear coat is applied to end the process. The finish of the roofing has significant energy saving capacity due to its high UV resistance, and is also highly durable.  
Ever wondered if a metal roof attracts lightning? Well, it’s quite the opposite because a metal roof is more of a dissipater and not a lightning rod.  By any chance should your home be struck by lightning, a metal roof will be an excellent alternative. The metal roof has earned respect to the fact that it quickly and safely disperses electricity to the ground unlike other materials; and since it is combustible, there are very low risks of a resulting house fire.  For the highlighted benefits that come with this roofing, why not draw your satisfaction from Royal Mabati Factory Limited?

mabati as popularly known in Kenya is a Swahili name meaning; Corrugated galvanized iron or steel (colloquially corrugated iron or pailing (in Caribbean English), occasionally abbreviated CGI) is a building material composed of sheets of hot-dip galvanized mild steel, cold-rolled to produce a linear corrugated pattern in them. The corrugations increase the bending strength of the sheet in the direction perpendicular to the corrugations, but not parallel to them. Normally each sheet is manufactured longer in its strong direction. CGI is lightweight and easily transported. It was and still is widely used especially in rural and military buildings such as sheds and water tanks. Its unique properties were used in the development of countries like Australia from the 1840s, and it is still helping developing countries like Kenya today
