5 Reasons Why You Want ENSEAM or Nail Strip Metal Roofing? Your roof is a big investment, so you want to be sure you’re getting quality, as well as value for money. Therefore, you need to do your due diligence and learn what roofing is best for your property. At KC Roof Plumbing, when it comes to creating a stylish, high-end metal roof to go perfectly with an architecturally designed house, ENSEAM and Nail Strip is always top of our list. What’s the Difference Between a Standard Metal Roof & ENSEAM or Nail Strip Roofing? Let’s start with the basics: what makes a Colorbond ENSEAM roof different from your traditional metal roof? It’s all in how the metal panels connect. When it comes to ENSEAM installation, each metal panel is joined together using fasteners that are then hidden by the adjacent panel. As a result, your new metal roof seamlessly connects together for a chic, modern look, matching a range of architectural styles and materials. While the end result may look similar, ENSEAM and Nail Strip are an innovation on traditional standing seam metal roofs. Typically, because a standing seam metal roof is more technically complex, it is generally more expensive than a standard metal roof and takes a little longer to install. However, thanks to clever designs, ENSEAM and Nail Strip metal roofing is more cost effective and installation can be completed more quickly with the same finesse outcome as other profiles. Why You Want an ENSEAM or Nail Strip Roof? As the premier metal roofing experts in Melbourne, working with metal roofs and other profiles everyday, we’ve seen the great benefits of ENSEAM and Nail Strip time after time. These are just our top five. 1. They’re Made to Handle the Ups & Downs of the Australian Climate From spectacular summer storms to scorching days, Australia’s weather puts any roof through its paces. However, as ENSEAM and Nail Strip solutions are made from Australian heavy-hitter Colorbond, you know your new metal roof can take weather extremes with ease. As part of this, the hidden fastener system plays a crucial role. Because of the shielded fastener system, your new ENSEAM or Nail Strip roof is far less likely to leak than other roofs, even in summer storms or during week-long rainy spells. And anyone who’s had to deal with a leaking roof can tell you just how much damage a little water can do. Similarly, the hidden fasteners also help improve your roof’s fire resistance. This is because the closed fastener system will reduce the likelihood of embers getting into your roof cavity. 2. They’re Made to Protect Your Home for Years to Come Along with shrugging off the worst of Australia’s weather, your new ENSEAM or Nail Strip roofing is incredibly durable. Utilising the best in metal roofing technology, it’s made to last for decades without showing its age. 3. They’re Made for Less & Easier Maintenance Speaking of showing its age, you’ll also find that when you choose ENSEAM or Nail Strip that you need to spend far less time maintaining it than other roof types. This is because on traditional metal roofs the connection points may be readily exposed to the elements. As a result, they are likely to wear quicker and need regular checking, if not replacing. However, because the fasteners for your ENSEAM or Nail Strip roof are safely tucked away, this is far less of an issue. However, we still recommend keeping an eye on your roof to spot any problems sooner rather than later. 4. They’re Made to Make Your Property Look Its Best for Less ENSEAM and Nail Strip roofs are incredibly versatile and can be matched with a range of materials to create a modern and aesthetically pleasing property. You can even get Nail Strip and ENSEAM cladding to create an impressive and united look. While you can do all this with traditional standing seam roofing and cladding, you will have to shell out a fair bit for this sleek and stylish look. However, ENSEAM and Nail Strip have been designed to cost less than other standing seam roofing options without compromising on quality, so you can get the architecturally confident look you want for less. In fact, fans of The Block will have seen ENSEAM and Nail Strip roofing and cladding used to great effect to create a stunning home without blowing budgets. Of course, it’s important to note that ENSEAM and Nail Strip aren’t low-cost options when compared with standard roof profiles. However, given they’re great quality, it’s money well spent. On that note, the last thing you want is your immaculately designed home to be let down by a sub-par looking roof. Plus, you’re likely to get a great return on your investment if you ever intend to sell your home. This is because your home will have increased curb appeal. Similarly, as it is well known that ENSEAM and Nail Strip are designed to last, your property’s value is likely to go up again. 5. They’re Made for Fast Installation We touched on this before but it cannot be overstated how quick Nail Strip and ENSEAM roofing installation is. The specially designed panels and fastener system ensure that your new metal roof is up sooner so you can move in and enjoy your space! How Long Will My ENSEAM or Nail Strip Metal Roofing Last? While the answer to this question does vary, general estimates have your new Nail Strip or ENSEAM metal roofing lasting at least 30 years. However, many people find their roofs can last upwards of this, even to 50 years. Talk about value for money! You can estimate the lifespan of your roof with a couple of pieces of information. First, check the manufacturer’s guarantee or advised product lifetime of the roofing you’ve chosen. As Colorbond is the typical choice for ENSEAM and Nail Strip installation, you will likely have a manufacturer warranty of up to 36 years. Next, you need to find out what the installation warranty is from the company you chose to set up your new roofing. This may be a few years or more. Using these numbers, you can estimate how long your roof will reliably last.
