Plastered roofs, commonly known as concrete or cement roofs, have been a popular roofing option in many parts of the world for centuries but are only just emerging here in Kenya. Here are some advantages of plastered roofs:


Plastered roofs are known for their durability and longevity. They are resistant to weather elements such as rain, wind, and sun and can last for decades without needing significant maintenance. (If constructed with utmost professionalism).


Plastered roofs provide excellent insulation and can regulate the temperature inside the house. They can keep the house cool during hot weather and retain warmth during cold weather, which can help reduce energy costs.

Noise Reduction

Plastered roofs are great for reducing noise pollution. They can block out noise from the outside, such as traffic or construction noise, which can help create a quieter and more peaceful environment inside the house.

On the other hand, iron sheet roofs, also known as corrugated metal roofs, have become a popular roofing option in recent years due to their affordability and ease of installation. Here are some advantages of iron sheet roofs:


Iron sheet roofs are more affordable than plastered roofs and can be a cost-effective option for people on a tight budget.


Iron sheet roofs are lightweight, which means they do not require a significant amount of support structure. This can reduce the overall cost of construction.


Iron sheet roofs come in various colors and designs, which can enhance the overall aesthetics of the building.

When choosing a roofing material, it is important to consider factors shown above but ultimately, the choice of roofing material will depend on your personal preferences, budget, and specific needs.
