8 Reasons To Use Corrugated Metal For Your Roof

Back to blog

Lightweight and hardwearing, corrugated roofing sheets are a fantastic option for both commercial and domestic buildings. Read on to discover why they’re a popular go-to for a range of construction projects. Here are eight great reasons to consider investing in metal roofing sheets from Rhino Steel Cladding Ltd.

1. Easy to install

Corrugated sheets fit the bill if you’re looking for a lightweight and easy-to-install roofing solution. The reduced structural load means you’ll save on building costs, ensuring you get a professional and aesthetic result on time and within budget.

2. Stands up to adverse weather

Unlike traditional roofing tiles, corrugated roofing sheets are built to withstand any weather.

They do a fantastic job of standing up to hail, storms, icy conditions and torrential rain without leaking. A properly installed corrugated roof acts as a weatherproof barrier, protecting your building and its contents all year round.

3. Low maintenance

Traditional roofing systems can take a great deal of looking after, costing you time and money.

If you don’t promptly deal with any leaks or other damage, those costs can rapidly mount up. Well-installed corrugated roof sheets, on the other hand, only need an occasional recoat and can last for decades.

It’s also worth re-tightening any fixings to maintain water-tightness. Apart from that, you can leave your roof alone for months or even years without seeing any signs of wear and tear.

4. Durable and long-lasting

Corrugated roof sheets have a well-deserved reputation for durability and longevity. The grooved design gives each sheet an excellent strength-to-weight ratio, while materials like steel and aluminium make each sheet highly resistant to wear and tear. It all adds up to a corrosion-resistant roof that’s incredibly long-lasting.

5. Fire-resistant option

Corrugated metal sheets can give your building excellent fire resistance when treated with a flame-retardant coating. So while your roof won’t be 100% fireproof, the risk of it catching fire and collapsing is significantly reduced for enhanced protection.

6. Highly customisable

Modern corrugated roofing sheets are highly customisable and can be used to create the aesthetic of your choice.

Available in different materials and thicknesses, you can customise each sheet to suit your project perfectly. For example, stainless steel has a unique finish and look, while aluminium is incredibly strong and rust-resistant. Metal corrugated roofing sheets are also available in a wide range of colours and can be specially finished for extra weather or fire resistance.

7. Energy-efficient

Modern buildings rely on superior energy efficiency to keep operating costs low. Metal roofing is a fantastic way to lower your bills and could save you up to 40% on your energy bill.

Insulated corrugated roof sheets keep your building warm in winter and reflect heat away in summer, saving you money on heating and cooling. In addition, there are plenty of options for reflective coatings that help to maximise energy savings.

8. Sustainable

Metal is a highly sustainable material, and most metal products are easy to recycle. That’s the case with corrugated metal roof sheets. If your aim is to create a building with exceptional green credibility, this type of roofing ticks all the boxes. Highly affordable and environmentally friendly, metal roof sheets are an effortless way to meet your sustainability targets.
