Most builders prefer aluminum roofing sheets because of its durability and beauty it offers. But when it comes to such , there are lots of issues to consider and one of such is the thickness, wideness, span design and total length, etc. these issues will decide the amount to be spent in the project. The less the thickness and quality the less the price. That is a case of the normal long span . However, the short span sheet is a different issue altogether.
Short span Aluminum sheet was developed to the gap between normal corrugated iron (zinc) and the long span . The later was found to be used only by the rich while economical buildings have zinc on them. The clear difference between the two is and rust, are not prone to and rust while the corrugated iron are prone to them after few years of their service on the .
Short span which is also called Cameroon aluminum sheet, is a shorter length version of the long span , it has a length of about 6 feet and a width of about 4 feet having similar span design to that of the aluminum sheet and zinc.

- The new models have two types of span ; the zinc span design and the long span .
Despite the above features of the new sheets, the differences in prices and bundle are not the same. The 3 feet by 6 feet comes in 50pcs per bundle while the 4 ½ feet by 6 feet comes in 40 pcs per bundle.
The variations in span has nothing to do with their quality and thickness, because any of the design can come with varieties of thicknesses and colors.
