So what are the advantages of JHL stone-coated steel roof shingles?
One of the most well-known advantages of JHL metal roof tiles is that they are more durable than other roofing materials. The metal roof with paint coating has gradually been surpassed by the JHL metal roof. Asphalt and shingles can only be used for 13-20 years and require frequent maintenance and replacement. The JHL tile can be used for up to 50 years and requires very little maintenance.
One of the main advantages of JHL metal roofing is its ability to withstand all kinds of bad weather. It can maintain a healthy state even in harsh environments for a long time, including strong winds, hail, rain, and snow. Other roofing materials, such as asphalt and shingles, decompose in hot and cold weather, causing their ability to protect the house begins to weaken. JHL metal roofs are not affected by weather changes, and their ability to protect houses will not weaken over time. The most important thing is that JHL roof tiles use a unique interlocking structure to eliminate the risk of being swept away by hurricanes.
JHL metal roof requires almost no maintenance during its service life. This is because it uses galvalume steel as the base material, which is a more durable construction material than asphalt or shingles. The stone coating on the surface is even better than the best PVDF coating. Even if exposed to harsh environments for a long time, it will not fade or fall off.
JHL stone coating roof tiles are very environmentally friendly, it does not use a paint coating, but uses natural resin glue. It is made of 95% recyclable materials and can be recycled at the end of its useful life. However, when they are used for 50 years, they can continue to be used. In the case of asphalt roofs, frequent replacements will produce a large amount of non-recyclable garbage every time they are replaced.
JHL metal roof tiles are more energy-efficient than other roofing materials. The stone coating on the surface can reflect ultraviolet rays better than ordinary PVDF coating, and minimize the increase of heat in the home. When the sun goes down, the steel at the bottom will quickly dissipate heat, and the surface stone will have a residual temperature, which can minimize the impact of sudden temperature differences. Asphalt transfers heat into the room. In summer, asphalt roads are the best proof. When using an asphalt roof, the heat transfer will cause the air conditioning load to increase.
Unlike other materials, JHL stone-coated steel roof is non-combustible, and the stone coating on the surface will greatly prevent heat transfer. Other roofing materials can ignite or transfer heat to the insulation layer, which can cause internal deformation or leaks. If the fire rating of an ordinary metal roof is A, then the fire rating of JHL roof tiles is even better. Don’t worry even if you encounter a flying spark, it will go out quickly, just like a stone that will never be ignited.
This may be surprising. The weight of JHL stone-coated roof tiles is 5-6KG per square meter. This means that when JHL roof tiles are used for construction, the requirements for the load-bearing structure of the house will be reduced, which means that the cost will be reduced. Although light, it has super strength and can withstand strong winds or hail.
The most popular reason: appearance
In addition to being practical, the metal roof can also be up to the time. Different from corrugated metal, JHL stone-coated steel roofs have 12 shapes and 16 colors, and hundreds of roof tiles are matched with each other. The most popular are Milano tiles, wood grain tiles, and imitation asphalt tiles. Various colors and finishes allow homeowners to customize the roof according to their preferences.
