Important instructions

THE ROOF IS THE MOST IMPORTANT SHELTER OF YOUR HOME

The condition of the roof is a critical factor in the long life of a home or any other building. The roof must be inspected regularly. When required, it should be replaced by durable steel roofing to ensure the best possible shelter for your home. The owner too often forgets about the roof. A leaking roof will rot construction away quickly, which will again increase repair costs. When roof renovation is done in time, damp and rot damages are avoided and the inhabitants stay healthy and happy. Please remember that, in the case of damage, the insurance company will demand proof of the roof having been maintained properly and on the damage not incurred by neglecting roof service or inspection.

 

NOTE!

When selecting the material, please verify the correspondence of long-life steel roofing with the planning regulations in the area.

A ROOF IN BAD CONDITION NEEDS TO BE REINFORCEDA

If it has not been done earlier, a roof renovation is necessary when the condition of the roof has become poor.
For example, moss growth on a tile roof, cracked tiles or significant darkening because of impurities increase the risk of leaks.
An old felt roof may also become cracked, and insufficient ventilation may weaken the supporting structures of the roof.
The old roof needs to be replaced with a durable steel roof before it starts leaking.

AVOID HEALTH RISKS

Mould damage can cause incurable health problems in the inhabitants of the house. Avoid problems with dampness and mould by having your roof renovated in time.
Poor ventilation can also cause moisture to be trapped under the roof, gradually damaging the structures of the house.

SAVE ENERGY AND MONEY

A top-quality roof renovation also means savings in energy costs.
In a good and thorough roof renovation, the insulation and its benefits in terms of energy savings is also taken into account.
Roof renovation work is directly deductible from your taxable income.
In 2017, the maximum savings was 2,400 euros per person.
For a two-person household, the reduction is thus 4,800 euros (more information at vero.fi).

WHY CHOOSE A WECKMAN STEEL ROOF?

STEEL IS THE MOST POPULAR AND DURABLE ROOF MATERIAL IN FINLAND

A steel roof is also known as a tin roof.
Steel is a very durable material. The oldest steel roofs in Finland are from the 18th century. At that time, the steel was not even galvanised, but the roofs are still in good condition.
Weckman’s product range includes more than 200 different steel roof options, guaranteeing that every customer can find a roof that suits them.

WECKMAN IS THE QUIETEST

The right details give you a quiet roof.
Ensure that your new roof is delivered as a complete Weckman product package, which guarantees a high level of living comfort, functionality and quietness in all weather conditions.
One example of careful product planning is the side fastener of the interlocking Progantti roof plates, which ensures free thermal expansion of the steel. This makes Progantti the quietest.

WECKMAN IS SELF-VENTILATING

Ensure that your new roof has a ventilating structure.
In Weckman Progantti roof packages, this is a standard.

A WECKMAN STEEL ROOF IS LIGHT BUT SAFE

A steel roof only weighs around 5 kg/m2, while, e.g., a regular tile roof weighs 10 times as much, around 45 kg/m2. In winter, when the structures must bear the additional load of snow, the roof’s own weight may be a crucial factor. It is important to take this into account in a renovation, as the structures were not necessarily originally dimensioned for a heavier load.

A WECKMAN STEEL ROOF IS WATERPROOF

Weckman steel roofs have few seams, and the ones that exist are equipped with capillary or water grooves. Weckman’s tile pattern roof sheets are more than a metre wide and the length is made to measure according to the size of the roof. A correctly installed steel roof will not be penetrated by water and is therefore not dependent on waterproof underlayment.
