Metal Sheeted Roof

Eco Rubber is proudly manufactured in South Africa, for the South African climate. Metal sheeted roofs are great investments that significantly enhance the external and internal value of a structure.

The maintenance of your metal sheeted roof can be improved through the following tips and tricks:

Inspect the roof on a regular basis for a variety of factors. These factors include fixings and flashings, chimney flashing, gutters and downpipes, dented sheets or sheet that have lifted or shifted. Additional inspections include any roof-mounted equipment such as TV aerials and satellite dishes. General maintenance tips for IBR roofing includes using a hosepipe to neutralise areas of rust.

Mix a few drops of dish soap into a bucket of water.

Pour a small amount of mineral spirits onto a clean cloth if the metal sheeted roof has scratches.

It should be noted that metal roofs will not spark and ignite into flames during a wildfire or lightning strike.

Maintain the roof with galvanised materials. By applying these galvanised techniques, the prevention of water leaks are ensured. In South Africa, zinc and galvanised IBR sheeting are the most affordable roofing solutions.
