Editor's Note

October is a month of festivities and on behalf of Colourcoil Industries, we would like to wish our Muslim readers

"Selamat Hari Raya"

We took the opportunity in our previous issue to introduce to our readers Colourcoil's latest product, PRISMA Series. If you have missed the article in our previous issue, make sure you find out by clicking on the New Product ad.

For the month of October, we would like to feature an article on tile-type metal roofing for homes. We hope the article and pictures will inspire potential home owners and architects to design and use more metal.

Last but not least, for those who will be driving long distance to visit family and friends, please drive responsibly and safely.

Thank you.

Team leader & Editor

Beautiful Metal Roofs - Bandar Sri Indah Market
Recently, not too long ago, two similar market buildings were completed in two private developments. The market buildings are located in Bandar Sri Indah, Tawau and in Bandar Sri Perdana, Lahad Datu. Both the locations are in the east coast of Sabah. Rather unique is the roof where the architect and the developer insisted on using COLOURCOIL METALLIC PVF2  SeriesTM in "copper" colour for the roofs. The profile type was standing seam. Below is the picture of the finished roof. The architect and the developer mentioned that they did not want any problems related to the premature colour fading of the roof. We are sure residents around the area do not want this to happen either.

Beautiful Metal Tile Roofs
Metal roofs do not have to look industrial. In peninsular Malaysia, there is a tendency to use concrete tiles as the roofing material for residential homes. However in East Malaysia, metal roofs with tile like profile are used extensively for homes and housing developments. This long length, tile-like metal roof panels are also known as "stepped-tile" profile.

While the initial cost of a metal tile roof may cost more than a concrete roof, we know for a fact, that metal will outlast concrete. Not only that, metal roof will provide measurable energy savings (many homeowners report 20% cooling costs savings). A freshly installed, high quality metal roof will increase the monetary value of any building, thereby reducing its initial cost. In retrospect, a metal roof that costs more initially, can pay for itself overtime by increasing the value of a building, providing notable energy savings, requiring no maintenance and thereby saving money, and finally by providing a reliable protection that will save money in water damage and repair costs.

To ensure that your home will increase in value and that metal roof will look great for years to come, make sure you specify COLOURCOIL high performance pre-painted steel for your metal tile roof. The following pictures show some of the metal tile roofs that have been used locally in Malaysia.

Have you changed your mind about metal roofing? Well, we hope so. Metal roofs can look great as there are many varieties of profiles and colours to choose from.

Oh, one other thing! If security is a concern to you and your family, metal roof sheets are fixed to the battens of roof trusses and are difficult to remove whereas individual concrete or clay tile are fastened with clips that maybe easily removed, piece by piece. With a metal roof, you won't have to grill up your ceiling to prevent intrusion to your home from the roof. Isn't that great?
