Roofing bolts are an essential part of fixing thin roof materials to an external structure. Most commonly they have a flat head or come in a hook variety depending on the necessary project requirements. This makes them more durable when dealing with more weight and creates a stronger holding force - very important for a roof!
Although roof bolts seem like a throwaway part of your project they are without doubt one of the most important aspects of installing a roof that will stand the test of time. You need to make sure you’re choosing the right type of bolt for the job. This comes down to the different types of material you’re using as there are specific bolts for concrete, slate, brick and more.

Different Types of Roofing Bolts
The Forgefix Thunder Bolts are self-threaded bolts which create a very secure fixing, suitable for use on dense and hard materials like stone, concrete and brick. These bolts are also available with a galvanised finish which helps protect the bolt from weather damage and general corrosion.
Samac Fixing’s Hook Bolts are used to fix sheets and cladding to metal frames. The hook shape, or J shape, fits over the edge of the material creating a durable and strong fixing that will help your roof stand up against the wind and weather. Generally, they’re used for corrugated roof jobs, although you might also use them for fencing and other landscaping projects.
