Supporting the whole roof are metal frames/trusses that has been designed by City Top Enterprise Sdn. Bhd. As for the eaves ceiling, the owner decided to use strip ceiling manufactured by DML Sdn. Bhd.

Here are the excerpts from our interview with the owner and his wife:

Why did you decide on this roofing system?
"We wanted a roof that was going to be leak-free and also one that would last for a long time. Well, metal or rather steel being the strongest, fits our criteria. The previous old roof was also metal and it lasted me some forty years with very little problems. We also did some research on the internet and found out that full strength 70% PVDF paint coatings were the best for colour retention.  As for the copper look, my wife felt that a roof with that colour would certainly give the house a unique and different look.  I think most people who pass by the house a couple of times will notice the change in colour shade depending on the time of the day.  You know, when our neighbors and friends see us, they can't help but mention the roof".

"I suppose a roof is like the hair on your head. If it looks good, your house will look good. Oh, one other thing. Should I decide to sell my house in the future, I know the value of my house will not drop as the colour of the roof will still be there, looking great. The roofing manufacturer, City Top calls it an "investment grade" metal roof.

So, now that you have installed a metal roof, is it very warm in the house?
"Not so. The most important thing is ensure proper ventilation to get rid of the air trapped between the roof and the ceiling. If you notice, the pitch of our roof is quite steep with a large volume of air. By adding louvers to the Dutch gable-end, the hot air is no longer trapped and can escape easily. To stop birds from entering, we also added a wire mesh at the back of the louvers. Two layers of fiberglass wool insulation were placed underneath the metal tile roof to help reduce the heat and of course to reduce the noise when it rains. Come to think of it, my old roof did not have any insulation and It never stopped me from sleeping when it rained".

Your roof manufacturer mentioned that you have used a 0.55mm BMT (i.e. base metal thickness) material for your metal tile roof. This is thicker than those that are normally produced. Can you tell us why?
"Roof dents. We have seen many roofs where at the time of installation, they look great. But soon after, when you get people servicing the aircon compressors or the Astro dish, dents can start appearing on the thinner gauge roof because these workers do not really know where to put their foot. With the 0.55mm BMT material, dents from walking on the roof is no longer an issue. Have you seen how tough and stiff a 0.55mm BMT tile profile roof is when compare to the thinner gauges? In western countries, very often the BMT of the material can go up to 0.6 or 0.7mm. Of course it costs a bit more, but we were willing to pay a little extra. And also with a thicker and stiffer roof, the noise maybe reduced.

Why did you decide to use light gauge steel trusses to support the roof?
Well, we don't really need to cut down any more trees. Back then, my old roof was supported by timber trusses. Those trusses were made from Selangan Batu hardwood. Today, I don't think it is easy to find such wood and even if you did, it would probably cost a bomb. Light gauge steel trusses are great because they are dimensionally stable and they will not warp or rot. Just make sure the trusses are properly designed in accordance with the engineering codes and local by-laws. I also like the fact that the facia board is made from the same pre-painted steel material as the roof and can be connected directly to each truss. The strip ceiling also slots in nicely to the facia board.

We notice that you have used metal strip ceiling for your eaves. Is this for aesthetic reasons?
Partly I guess. Most people have tried fiberboards, plaster boards and what have you. They are great when you have just installed them, but after a while,  visible cracks will start to appear, particularly along the joints. Put it this way, with a metal strip ceiling, I know  our maintenance will be minimal. It may cost a bit more to start of with, but in the long run we will save.

Beautiful Metal Roofs - Shah Alam Royale Theater
The Shah Alam Royale Theatre, one of the latest landmark in the capital city, is located at Jalan Persidangan in Section 14, just behind the Grand Bluewave Hotel. It is set to play a big role in promoting the performing arts in the state capital of Shah Alam. Construction of the RM43mil complex started in December 2004 and was completed in July 2008.

The six-storey theatre block was designed along the Malay-Bugis concept. It is equipped with a main stage with a seating capacity of 800, easy-to-move stage, conference rooms, multipurpose hall, cafeteria, exhibition hall, management office and surau. There are also ample parking for visitors, including designated parking lots for the disabled.

The theatre provides another venue for the local theatre productions in the state, besides the MBSA auditorium and the Petaling Jaya Civic Centre.

The roof is made from metal shingles each hand crafted and carefully installed into position. The material chosen is COLOURCOIL METALLIC PVF2TM Series in 2 colours, silver and pearl gold. Obviously the owners knew what they wanted and rest assured, those colours on the roof are going to last for a very long time.
