U-Roof Steel Frame Construction

For many years, the U-Roof light gauge steel frame system has been the preferred choice with architects, specifiers, self-builders, and larger developers.

When using the patented U-Roof light gauge steel frame roof solution, you will benefit from the consistency, efficiency, and accuracy of factory-controlled manufacturing. Our system emphasises the superior characteristics of an inorganic, hot-dip galvanised structure, allowing increased spans with additional room space (compared with traditional timber frame “alternatives”), a 200-year minimum expected lifespan used in warm metal frame bars construction and affordability.

Simple duo pitched roofs can be put up in next to no time – with minimal experience required. The lightweight feature of the U-Roof, steel frame system removes the logistics of heavy truss installation or hot-rolled steel. In some instances, roof sections can be constructed at ground level & craned into position pre weatherproofing.

Our ‘room in the roof’ involves insulation boarding being fitted in between the rafter underneath the existing plasterboard to create better use of space.

Our unique system also ticks many of the boxes towards the code for sustainable homes.

Modular Steel Frame system

All of our prefabricated frames are versatile; whether it be a full frame, roof only system, single storey extension, roof replacement or garden room, they can all be designed, manufactured and supplied in modular kit form. We can extend our service by working with you to include building fabric elements in our frames or working alongside third-party subcontractors/system providers to provide a complete modular package.

U-Roof can also coordinate and manage deliveries to suit your project needs to ensure operations run smoothly on site. All our frames can be delivered on either a supply and install or supply-only basis. Whichever format is required, the U-Roof team can work flexibly to meet your requirements

Frequently Asked Questions

No! Steel frame construction is more cost-effective. Projects typically incur 8% to 10% less expense compared to traditional brick construction. Additionally, there is significantly less waste during the construction process.

Yes, absolutely! In contrast to brick construction, the risk is nearly negligible. Due to its flexible nature and lack of solid resistance, steel frame constructions can seamlessly adapt to earthquake movements without compromising their structural integrity. 

Yes!, temperature changes can impact steel structures. But our innovative sheds are designed with durability in mind. Browse from our range of U-shaped, cold-rolled, and galvanized steel profile that provides stability and resilience. The patented design accommodates thermal expansion and contraction, ensuring your shed maintains its structural integrity even in varying weather conditions.
