3 Types of Roofing Materials in Nigeria  

Civilization has come a long way since the times of the early man. Houses and roofing have evolved from the use of animal parts, woods, rocks, mud, straw to beautiful and elegant materials made of ceramic and metal.

When it comes to building a house or remodelling an old house, choosing the right roofing and roofing materials can make all the difference. In addition to providing shelter and covering, roofs can elevate the design of a house, change its outlook and add great style to its aesthetics. Here, we will explore 3 roofing materials for your home.

1)    Aluminum roofing

The average building in Nigeria probably has an aluminum roof. Aluminum roofs are durable, can withstand harsh weather conditions, and are expected to last at least 50 years.  The only downside to this choice of roofing material is that it tends to lose its vibrant colors. Aluminum sheets are readily available in the market and a preferred choice when it comes to roofing. Another upside to aluminum roofs is their affordability. In today’s economy, opting for a budget-friendly roofing option may be the right way to go.

2)    Stone coated roofing 

This roofing option is rust-proof, more expensive than aluminum roofing sheets, and popularly seen in megacities. This is a roofing choice for people who are more comfortable financially and have style or elegance as their top priority. Stone-coated roofing is made of steel, perfected with stone fragments mixed with acrylic. it is lightweight, fire/heat resistant, and noiseless when it rains.

3)    Fibre cement sheet

This roofing option is known for its strength and durability. It bears a bit of weight but requires little to no maintenance after installation. Fibre cement roofing has a life expectancy of 30years and is not the most popular option in Nigeria.
