Lead, Steel And Aluminium
Lead has been commonly used for thousands of years because it is easy to extract and easy to work with. In Alchemy lead was thought to be the oldest metal and was associated with planet Saturn.
Lead has long played an important role in traditional building. Lead roofing is amongst the most durable materials on the market and lead roofs constructed as far back as the 18th century are still in use today.

Aluminium roofs are attractive, durable, energy-efficient and increasingly affordable. It is malleable, lightweight and easy to work with onsite, thereby reducing labour costs. It comes in zinc and copper effect and looks almost identical to these materials. For this reason it is a very good alternative to zinc or copper when budgets are tight. Once installed it has a very long service life and is corrosion-resistant.

Steel panels offer a high level of flexibility, and have no spring-back, having the feel of zinc or copper when bent by hand. This malleability means the material is easy to combine with other building materials offering unlimited possibilities to create bold roofing and cladding designs. This is a highly durable roofing and cladding material with a long lifespan and is maintenance free.
Our panels are available with a zinc coating and is a very good alternative to zinc at a lower price. The high strength and guaranteed long life of our steel panels ensures it is an excellent zinc or copper alternative.
