Throughout the centuries, zinc has proven to be one of the most reliable, durable and attractive metal roof options used for roofing and cladding.
A now sweeping trend across the UK, the benefits of using zinc in architectural applications are endless, and as skilled zinc installers, we want to share with you what results you can achieve and how we can make it happen.

But today’s modern age has seen the trend gradually shift back to zinc, which is now regarded as one of the most valuable roofing and cladding materials that any residential or commercial architectural project can use.
Admired for its long-term longevity and sustainability, zinc is possibly one of the best materials that you can use for your new roof installation.

Zinc is often appealing for architects because of its relatively low startup costs, especially in regards to environmental and maintenance savings.
The self-protective patina that forms over the material will heal any scratches on the surface and keep your roof in brand new condition.
More durable and cost-effective compared to other metals, zinc roofs will be suitable for roof pitches above 5 per cent – and it’s these characteristics that give architects greater freedom of expression when using zinc in their roof designs.
