Over sheeting can be adapted for most pitched roofs and cladding.
This means the original roof or cladding remains in place providing weather protection, whilst a proprietary spacer bar system is installed to support the new covering.
A choice of roof and cladding coverings can be utilised such as colour coated steel and aluminium profiled sheeting. Standing seam and concealed fix systems are available for low-pitch roof applications.
Oversheeting also provides an ideal opportunity to incorporate additional insulation, thereby reducing heat loss through the roof.
Oversheeting is a great way to solve many roofing problems with the added bonus of providing extra insulation as well. It can save you time, worry and money. It is also environmentally friendly in that it allows you to increase insulation, reducing energy usage and heating costs.
What is it?
Rather than removing the old roof and completely re-roofing the building, corrugated cladding is fitted over the top of the old roof. There is a huge range of oversheeting systems available to suit any requirement or budget and fitting is usually straightforward.
What are the benefits of oversheeting?
There are many advantages to fitting oversheeting but here are some of the big ones:
- It minimises disruption – the old roof is not removed so you will not have to move into a new premises. Your business can carry on pretty much as normal.
- Allows you to add insulation – many oversheeting systems come with foam insulation integrated into the panels. If they don’t it is easy for us to lay insulation on top of the old roof when we fit the oversheeting. In both cases the air gap between the original roof and the oversheet strengthens the impact of the insulation.
- It saves you money. Today’s oversheeting solutions are light, compact and easy to fit. This means they take less time to fit than a new roof. They give you all the benefits of a new roof at a greatly reduced cost.
- It delivers results. Using oversheeting allows you to give your building a facelift at a relatively low price. It is just as good as a new roof and is a great, cost effective way of caring for your building.
