Common uses for Corrapol-BT Bitumen Roof Sheets
Bitumen roof sheets are a very versatile material which is one of the reasons behind their popularity for outdoor DIY and agricultural projects. They are used in many roofing applications such as Timber sheds, outbuildings, barbeque shelters, lean-tos, log stores and more.
How many bitumen sheets will I need?
With a simple calculation, you can work out how many sheets you need for your Corrapol-BT Bitumen Corrugated Roof.
The coverage width of a Corrapol-BT Roof Sheet is 855mm allowing for one corrugation overlap or 760mm if you are allowing for two corrugation overlaps. For example, if you had a roof that was 5 metres wide by 2 metres deep/long you would simply divide the width of your roof by the coverage width of a sheet.
5000mm ÷ 855mm = 5.85
Next, round up the number to ensure full coverage, meaning in this example you would require six Corrapol-BT Sheets across the width of your roof. Next, simply divide the length/projection of your roof up to work out how many 1 or 2m sheets you will need in each run.

Are Bitumen Roof Sheets made longer than 2 metres?
No unfortunately due to the manufacturing process, all bitumen roofing sheets are only available up to 2 metres long. For most applications, you can simply overlap the sheets to achieve greater lengths. A unique benefit of the Corrapol BT and Awnapol Premium Bitumen Corrugated sheets is that they are available in 1 metre lengths which helps to reduce wastage when overlapping to longer lengths.
If you are looking for a longer sheet it is worth considering the Corramet corrugated roof sheets which are available up to 4 metres long. Although these 4 and 3 metre corrugated sheets have a small cost premium they are more robust and last over double the life of bitumen sheets. What's more, Corramet Sheets, come with fixings included.
- Width: 930mm
- Coverage Width: 855mm (one overlap)
- Sheet Length: 1000 or 2000mm (Can be easily overlapped in length and width)
- Life Expectancy: 10 Years
- Material: Bituminous fibre

Ordering from ClearAmber was simple and straightforward. The Corramet Corrugated Roofing Sheet is of high quality and standard but easy enough to fit. I purchased five of these to cover carport and they are very heavy duty and sturdy. It is good idea to have the correct drill bit and screw bit and where possible two cordless drills to make it easy and fast to install. I also purchased extra screws but found that the ones provided with the sheets were sufficient enough.
Fitted as hoped and easy to work with. Did what it was supposed to do.
Excellant service with all materials delivered as promised. All we have to do is construct the building for which the roofing was ordered,
The quanity calculator was very useful and helpful.
