How to calculate aluminium roofing sheets?

Aluminium roofing sheets are a very durable and lightweight roof covering. However, they can be costly to maintain because of the material they’re made out of. Aluminium is a metal that reacts with water and moisture, which results in rust forming on the surface. To prevent this from happening, it is important to have an anti-rust treatment applied before any rust has developed on the surface. This will ensure your roofing lasts for many years before needing replacing or repairing. It is also important to clean your aluminium roofing regularly so that no dirt or dust builds up on it over time. This can then cause the surface to rust, making your roofing unusable and causing you to have to replace it. If you are looking for a cost effective way of maintaining your aluminium roofing, there are a few ways that you can do this without having to pay extra money.

The price of aluminum depends on the place where you buy it, but usually 1 m3 of raw aluminum costs around $1.000. The price also depends on the grade – higher quality aluminum has higher prices than the ordinary aluminum sheet that we can buy in the hardware store.

To calculate how many sheets of aluminum you need for a roof, you should divide the total area by 10 m2 and multiply this number with 0,4 (specific weight of aluminum). For example if your building has an area of 60 m2 and it needs 5 sheets of aluminum to cover its surface then the cost would be $960 per sheet.

Aluminium is a very light metal (specific weight of aluminum is 1,890 kg/m3). The first advantage of aluminum is that it does not rust. For this reason aluminum has become one of the most used materials in construction and transportation.
The second advantage of aluminum is that it doesn’t need paint or other coating for protection against corrosion. This also makes aluminium an ideal material for building structures on-site – such as car parks, hospitals, schools etc.
