The building terminologies in Nigeria have been a problem to the novice due to improper understanding of what some terms mean. When a builder says Cameroon zinc, some clients do misunderstand it to be the normal short span aluminum roofing sheets, which is rather called Cameroon Aluminum roofing sheets or Cameroon sheets in a short form. However, that is not actually true when it comes to dealing with the sellers or manufacturers those .
The difference in meaning for the both had been a source of confusion and a loophole for some builders to dupe their clients.
