The glass cladding choice has nothing to do with the kind of roof chosen for a steel framed building. I am assuming that when you use the term "cladding" it has a specific meaning to architects and engineers. It does not mean that the roof has glass skylights. Cladding is the siding along the vertical face of the building. The roof materials and framing system chosen has absolutely no bearing on the the cladding system chosen.
