Cost of Zinc Roofing Per Square Metre (m2), UK PricesThe cost of Zinc roofing per m2 can vary depending on the supplier of the material. The cheaper option will set you back around £20-£30 per metre square. This is not always a guarantee as some suppliers may insist on your buying a large quantity to get that price.
Currently the prices for a Zinc roof are quite competitive. The more expensive suppliers will charge up to £40-£70 per square metre. It's worth considering that the more expensive materials will be much higher quality. Zinc is still a much cheaper option than Copper or Aluminium. When it comes to a metal roof installation Tin tends to be one of the cheapest materials available in metal.
The Zinc roof cost per m2 is only for materials, you will need to add a labour cost on top. This will likely extend to any fixings that the installation requires also. It’s important to make sure you hire an expert to install your Zinc or other metal roof. A poor installation will lead to roof leaks and other problems.
We work with all the top suppliers and are approved to install their products. Some of the leaders in the Zinc field are VM Zinc and Rheinzink whose products we install on a regular basis.
Advantages And DisadvantagesZinc is one of the most durable metal roofing materials which can last for up to 100 years. It’s also one of the most flexible which can form amazing shapes with ease.
Zinc is by far the greenest of the metal roofing materials and 100% recyclable. This makes this versatile material a firm favourite for all types of cladding projects and standing roofing. You can also make big savings on your energy bill with a Zinc roof.
The melting point for Zinc is also far lower than any other metal roof material. Steel and Copper need far more energy to begin processing the metal for use. The melting point of Zinc is four times lower than both Steel and Copper.
Although Zinc can last up to 100 years it’s also one of the softer metals. This can lead to potential damage in extreme weather conditions such as hail and high winds. This usually depends on the type of metal design. Selecting one of the top suppliers reduces the chances of damage.
Rheinzink specialise in the popular Titanium Zinc products. These materials are among the strongest available and suitable for most projects. Rheinzink also has one of the top recycling rates on the market currently.
These products are also popular for rainwater systems and roof dormers. The quality and beauty make this type of metal ideal for industrial use. An extra benefit is the excellent protection on offer from extreme weather conditions.
There are many famous buildings that chose this modern roofing material. Rheinzink provides more scope for design than most products on the market.
Zinc Roofing Sheets
Zinc roofing sheets are becoming more and more popular as a roof surface. This metal material was hard to come by a while back but is now in good supply in the UK. Commercial and domestic properties now use Zinc sheets for their roofs, guttering and flashing. This was once a material for commercial use only but that is no longer the case.
The longevity of Zinc sheets is one of the major benefits but the fact they are maintenance free is another. Not only will this material protect your property but will also add to the aesthetic appeal. A beautiful Zinc roof will no doubt add value to your property. Most suppliers will stock both natural and pre-weathered Zinc sheets which are suitable for most surfaces.
Standing Seam & Flat Roofs
Standing seam Zinc roofing is now a viable alternative to traditional materials. More are turning to metal roofing for domestic purposes due to the longevity on offer. This makes standing seam roofs a cost effective solution. Most types of domestic roofs, depending on what materials you use will only last for 20-30 years before they need replacing.
Standing seam Zinc roofing is a method that connects panels together to form the roof. These panels tend to run vertical up the length of the roof.
It’s common to see this type of roofing design for both roofs with pitches and flat roofs such as extensions. You can see several examples of our standing seam projects on this page.
