CORRUGATED ROOFING

Corrugated metal roofing is a type of covering made of wavy cold-bent steel sheet profiles. Corrugated roofing sheets in Peterborough, ON are typically made of galvanized steel with a polymer coating, but they can also be made of aluminium and stainless steel. The panels are held together by exposed fasteners, which is both a strength and a weakness of the system. On the plus side, the drilling allows for a quick, easy and less expensive installation. 

Each sheet requires approximately 20 screws to be properly secured. The screw holes reduce the roof's water resistance and make the covering susceptible to leakage. Corrugated roofing is often found in agricultural and construction areas such as on industrial buildings, barns, and commercial and engineered structures.

CORRUGATED ROOF PANELS

Corrugated metal roof panels have a wavy appearance with "S'' shaped curves. They start off as large round coils of steel and are roll-formed in a machine to get their wavy appearance. The two most common types of corrugated metal roofing are ⅞” Corrugated and ½” Corrugated. 

⅞” Corrugated Metal Roofing

⅞” corrugated metal roofing is the most common wavy corrugated roofing panel. It gets its name from the rib height of the panel, which is 7/8" inch. The deep round corrugations create a visually appealing and durable panel. ⅞” panels are wider and less expensive than ½” Corrugated metal roofing.

Why consider ⅞” corrugated roofing?

  • Far less expensive that ½” corrugated
  • Strong and durable roofing panel
  • Wide and distinct appearance
  • Quicker installation

½” Corrugated Metal Roofing

½” Corrugated is a traditional and classic metal roofing panel. It is now used less frequently on construction projects because it's expensive, has less strength and durability than ⅞” panels, fewer colour and gauge options, and takes longer to install.

Why consider ½” corrugated roofing?

  • Can use to patch your existing ½” corrugated roof
  • You prefer the look of smaller waves
  • You need a lower profile panel due to clearance requirements

WHEN YOU SHOULD USE CORRUGATED METAL ROOFING

Working on a small budget. Corrugated roofing is the most affordable metal roofing type on the market. It is a great option for home or business owners who want to benefit from a metal roof but can’t afford standing seam.

When doing DIY installation. When compared to metal shingle roofs or standing seam, corrugated roofing has an easy and straightforward installation. Homeowners can cut down on the cost and install corrugated metal roofing themselves.

Great for agricultural and commercial buildings. Since corrugated roofing has exposed fasteners, it's not particularly ideal for residential homes. However, this makes it a perfect roofing option for agricultural and commercial buildings. It is cost-effective and quick and easy to install.

On a tight schedule. Corrugated roofing panels are readily available at most home improvement stores if you need materials quickly. They are also simple and quick to install.

WHEN YOU SHOULDN'T USE CORRUGATED METAL ROOFING

You want a concealed fastener roof. Corrugated roofing has exposed fasteners which requires more maintenance than concealed fasteners. The screws are also visible from the outside and can rust and shift overtime.

You live in a climate with extreme weather conditions. Corrugated metal is often thinner and has a hard time standing up against the harsh Canadian climate in Peterborough Ontario. Plus, the exposed fasteners can create opportunities for leaks which can result in costly water damage.

You want a modern metal roof design. While corrugated metal roof panels are wavy, they don’t fit into the clean line aesthetic of a modern home. Other metal roofing options like standing seam, provides a sleek, modern design for residential homes.
