There are had been a big comparison as to why someone should use the short-span aluminum roof or the long-span, the reason is due to the clear advantages and disadvantages of the two .
The popular and Lagos markets had been filled with a different range of materials including , zincs and aluminum. But among all these customers are more concern about quality in terms of durability, affordability, and for the it will be used. Recent recharge has shown that the demand for short-span aluminum sheet is becoming more than the long-span aluminum as well as other materials like zinc.
It is obvious that the price of short-span aluminum which usually comes in 50 pieces per bundle had been rising since 2015 when it was sold for N40,000 for colored and N35,000 for colorless, now the same sheet costs more than N60,000 for colored and N55,000 for colorless. Why the continued increase in cost? Why the continued demand it despite the continued increase in cost?
A lot had gone wrong in the country economy within the last few years, though cannot be pointed out categorically, it is believed that the economic imbalance has put the majority in a position of accepting anything they could afford irrespective of what their choice could have been. One thing is to have a good choice, another thing is to have money capable of purchasing what you desired, but when such money is not available the only option is to go for affordability. That is the situation of today.
When the cost of long-span was increasing both in the market price and from the aluminum companies, I also knew that it wouldn’t be long when the prices of other will start to rise. As at February, 2016; a 50 feet by 50 feet square having a height of 9 feet was charged for N400,000 for including the labor cost with long-span aluminum sheet, but the same was roofed then with short-pan aluminum sheet at the cost of N180,000 including the labor cost and accessories. The latest market survey reveals to me that the same now cost N700,000 for long-span aluminum, while it costs N300,000 for the short-span aluminum sheet. Despite the continued increase in cost, statistics show that there is a higher demand for short-span than long-span .
WHY BUYERS MAY BE PREFERRING THE SHORT-SPAN ALUMINIUM SHEET
The short-span costs less and is affordable by the majority.
It does not need confused calculations to know how many of it is required in a particular .
It does not make ugly, in other words; it still gives the a modern look like the long-pan.
It is to . Due to its short length, it can be attached to the top of any and conveyed to the site.
Sometimes the long-pan experts can dupe their clients through wrong calculations and use of wrong aluminum sheet thickness.
Many people cannot differentiate the different ranges of thickness available in long-pan aluminum sheet, thereby making it easy for them to be duped into paying for high thickness and having low thickness fixed for them. Because the short-span usually come at a fixed thickness, fixed price, fixed length, and width, irrespective of the manufacturer or brand name; some people will always prefer it.
