We can cut roof sheets to any size you need – all you need to do is let us know the dimensions.

Plastic roofing provides a lightweight and often more cost-effective option to more traditional roofing materials, and it’s easy to work with – it can be cut and drilled with ease, using just basic tools. The durability of acrylic sheets makes them ideal for roofing applications, as well as this material being weather-resistant as well. Similarly, polycarbonate roofing sheets are impact-resistant and insulating, making them suitable for a wide range of roofing applications, from canopies and greenhouses to replacement roof glazing. They come in varied thicknesses known as twin-wall polycarbonate roofing sheets, triple-wall and multi-wall. They offer fantastic protection against harsh weather conditions and maximise light, as well as being a cost-effective material. PVC corrugated sheets are well suited to porches, carports, cold frames and garden sheds, as they offer great optical clarity and provide three times more natural light into a building than the same area of vertical glazing, so they help to create an ambient feel in the area below. Likewise, GRP fibreglass are excellent at bringing natural daylight into the building, which helps to open up the space and reduce electricity costs. They allow 92% light transmission and can be used the cover the whole roof or alongside steel roofing sheets.
Corrugated sheets provide an environmentally friendly method of roofing as well as being durable and light. Corrugated roofing is typically used for sheds and garages, porches and lean-to extensions, frequently bitumen sheets. Because of the nature of the design of corrugated sheets, they’re able to withstand considerable pressure. They can be installed on pitches as low as 5 degrees, so they’re beneficial for lean-tos and garden houses. Corrugated sheets are quick to install and require no specialist equipment or skills, so any DIY enthusiast can fit them with ease. They also offer great roof ventilation above the sheet into the tile batten cavity and into the roof space, while still helping to control moisture. The thermal insulation of corrugated sheets help to significantly improve the thermal performance of the roof, as well as improving the sound insulation by as much as 27%.
Metal roofing is an innovative system which can fit onto any roof size with ease. It’s often used for tool sheds, garages, workshops and play houses, and the attractive finish can enhance a range of small buildings. Metal roofing such as Corotile is made from steel sheets encased in acrylic and stone chippings to provide a sturdy and hardwearing material that’s resistant to fire, storms, hail and snow. The benefits of using metal roofing sheets is that they’re tough and last a long time, as well as being easy to install as they don’t need to be cut – they’re designed to be overlapped. Metal roofing can fit any sized roof and is environmentally-friendly, as well as being available in an attractive and traditional charcoal design.
