Why FAKRO Eurotop Roof Underlay!?
A roofing membrane acts as an initial roofing layer. It improves tightness of the roof, protects insulation against moisture and constitutes an important element of insulation systems used in pitched roofs. Application of the EUROTOP roofing membrane in the roof structure brings many advantages.
5 Reasons You Should Choose FAKRO Eurotop Over Galvanized Sheet
1. Energy Saving
Roofing membranes do not require any air gaps between themselves and insulation. Insulation shifted towards membrane allows for thicker insulating layer of the roof along the whole rafter height which improves roof lagging and ensures energy savings.
2. Ease of Installation
No need for any ventilation gap above insulation considerably facilitates installation work. Easier membrane installation translates into time savings, lower costs and reduced risk of workmanship error. Galvanized sheet or mabati is difficult to install, leads to a lot of wastage of materials (over 30%) and is very unsafe to work.
3. Increased Roof Longevity
Thanks to high vapour permeability of membranes, excessive moisture is evaporated from insulation. Since galvanized sheets do not exhibit such properties, their life span is fairly short. Put simply galvanized sheet underlays start aging and rusting the instant they are installed.
4. Healthy Microclimate in the Loft
Thanks to high vapour permeability of membranes, excessive moisture is evaporated from insulation. Since galvanized sheets do not exhibit such properties, galvanized sheet underlays start aging and rusting the instant they are installed.
5. Wide Application Range
Roofing membranes offered by FAKRO are highly resistant to temperature, thus they can be installed in a number of roof structures, even those covered with metal sheeting.
Galvanized sheets on the other hand are not temperature resistant they cannot be used in certain areas with humid conditions i.e. Mombasa, Kisumu, Kampala e.t.c.
