Slip, slop slap comes the cry of concerned mothers protecting their children from the harsh Australian sun. We all know that nowadays we have one of the highest skin cancer rates in the world due to the extreme temperatures and UV levels experienced by any one venturing into the great outdoors. The fierce Australian Sun is not just affecting living things though. Our monuments, our cars and our buildings are all sitting outside, with no shade, no 30+ and no hope of reprieve from an increasingly warm climate. At RO Steel Roofing we see first-hand the damage and destruction that the sun causes on buildings all across NSW.
We see temperatures in our state as high as 49.8°C and in Sydney 37°C is not uncommon, so protecting yourself and your investments from the sun is a serious consideration. For those of you with large commercial spaces the first line of defence is you roof.
Selecting the correct material for your roof will not only minimise the risk of damage and leaks but will also cut down on energy bills that can cost your business dearly. I’m not sure I have met anyone who is happy with the increase in electricity prices so here is a good tip for you to reduce your bill.
The most expensive; electricity hungry; machines in our lives are those that cool and those that heat. If you have a large air conditioning system in your commercial property you are likely very familiar with the value of your ever fattening bill.
