Step joints serve no function in a concealed fix roof and are a legacy of manufacturers’ inability to transport sheets longer than 30 metres. Step joints can be the weakest link in an otherwise sound roof. They allow for the build up of debris and constitute an unwashed area that is not covered by the BlueScope Steel Warranty.
