Rivets are small but sturdy fasteners used to join together different sheets of metal that make up a roof, specifically at flashing points. Creating a secure and weather-resistant seal. Rivets are particularly important in areas of Australia that experience high winds and heavy rainfall, as they help to prevent water from leaking through the roof and causing damage to the interior of a building.
One of the key benefits of using rivets in roofing is their durability. Made from high-quality materials such as steel or aluminium, they are designed to withstand the harsh Australian climate and remain securely in place for many years. They are also resistant to corrosion, ensuring that they continue to perform their job effectively over time.
There are many different types of rivets including solid, blind, tubular, metal and split rivets. They also come in a vast array of colours to suit your roof to make them blend in or a mill finish.
Another advantage of rivets is their ease of installation. They can be quickly and easily installed using a simple hand-held tool, making them a popular choice among roofing professionals and DIY enthusiasts alike. In addition, rivets are relatively low-cost, making them an affordable option for those looking to repair or replace their roof.
