Aluminium is a popular alternative choice for metal roofing and exterior cladding, valued for its flexibility and durable properties. This readily available metal is lightweight and can cover a vast surface area at a low cost.

Aluminium can be coated in a variety of colours and finshes to mimic the appearance of more expensive non-ferrous metals. Aluminium is also extremely malleable, so can be formed into complex and creative shapes. Value Engineering with aluminium enables an architect to achieve sought after results within a smaller budget.

Whether you are planning an aluminium roof, a pitched roof, or aluminium wall cladding, our experienced team at Varla can help you achieve stunning results from this highly dependable material.
