Benefits of VMZINC

All VMZINC systems can be used for new build and refurbishment alike and in combination with many other building materials. As with all VMZINC products exceptional durability, very limited maintenance and a wide range of beautiful finishes are offered.  A full list of benefits are shown below.

Zinc is among the most sustainable metals used in construction today and has been used on the roofs of Paris for almost 200 years. The VMZINC standing seam system is also highly cost-effective, both from an initial procurement and design life perspective. Whether for new build or refurbishment, the VMZINC standing seam system has been designed to complement a wide range of building materials and styles. The finishes available offer exceptional colour stability.

This ensures that maintenance requirements will be minimal throughout the system’s design life and that the material’s installed appearance will be retained for many years.
