Corrugated Metal Roofing

For structures in cold regions where more light is desired, a combination of corrugated metal roofing and clear plastic corrugated roofing can be used, with the metal taking most of the weight of the snow so that the plastic does not break. For snowy climates, corrugated metal roofing tends to be a better choice, because plastic and fiberglass can collapse under the weight of snow. Periodic maintenance in the form of inspections to check for loose sheeting is critical, because high winds can carry off entire corrugated metal roofing in minutes if the wind manages to get a foothold.

Varieties of Corrugated Metal Roofing

Corrugated Metal RoofingMetals are very durable, making them suitable for structures in harsh climates, and they can also be painted in a variety of colors, for people who prefer not to look at plain metal roofing and siding. Metals and plastics are both used to make corrugated metal roofing. The following are some key information that are some of the most used goods to correctly manufacture corrugated metal roofing.

Galvalume Corrugated Metal Roofing

Galvalume finish corrugated metal roofing is one of the best corrosion resistant corrugated materials offered in the architectural roofing and siding panel market. It is made of carbon steel sheet coated with aluminum-zinc alloy by a hot-dip process. The composition is around half aluminum and zinc. Silicon is also in the coating alloy and it is added not to enhance the corrosion performance. But instead, it is to provide good coating adhesion to the steel substrate in this corrugated metal roofing when the product is roll-formed, drawn, or bent during fabrication.

Galvanized Corrugated Metal Roofing

Galvanized corrugated metal roofing is a plain carbon steel sheet coated in a galvanizing process. A barrier is created of zinc to insulate it from the elements. A normal steel sheet will rust, but galvanizing will protect the steel from that. Once galvanized by eltro-coated along with the hot-dipped process, the surface will create a silvery finish look. After a certain period of time, the surface of this corrugated metal roofing will appear to obtain a white oxide look. When this happens, the material is actually protecting itself from further damage.Assorted Corrugated Metal Roofing Colors

Kynar Painted Finish Corrugated Metal Roofing

Kynar painted finish for corrugated metal roofing weathers extremely well. This is a coating that ’s specialty in plastic material in the fluoropolymer family. This is used in applications requiring the highest purity, strength, and resistance to solvents, acids, bases and heat and low smoke generation during a fire. This type of corrugated metal roofing has an easier melt process because of its relatively low melting point compared to other fluoropolymers.

Alloys Corrugated Metal Roofing

Alloys corrugated metal roofing can be requested in any type or style of corrugated panel available as well, and gives the surface appearance of a brushed finish. This is ideal for any decorative application, as it is the most common in all finished products. Moreover, it can form the mirrored finish in whichever corrugated look you desire. Whichever stainless alloy you choose, nothing matches this material ’s corrosion resistance to the elements. Stainless material for corrugated metal roofing in the weather will still retain its look as the day it was installed.
