Bitumen roof sheets have long been a popular choice for installation on residential and commercial roofing projects. Their unique mix of durability, affordability and ease of installation makes them a go-to choice for sheds, garages, stables and more.
When paired with the correct Rock N Lock Flashing and fixings, corrugated bitumen roofing sheets provide you with a good lifespan roof at an affordable cost.
Bitumen Roof Sheet Types
There are two types of bitumen roof sheet available with varying strength and price points:
Premium Bitumen Roof Sheets, like Awnapol®, are thicker and designed to be slightly more robust. These are great for larger roofing sheet projects, like stables or barns where quality is important.

Available in a wide selection of colours, bitumen roof sheets are made in black, green, red and brown options. We also manufacture all the corrugated fixings and accessories in matching colours to suit. All are available for rapid delivery in just 1-2 days.
