Corrugated Steel Roofing for Commercial and Industrial Properties

13 November 2016

Not all buildings are built the same, or have the same roof requirements. Unlike residential roofing, the roofing requirements for commercial and industrial properties focus on functionality and affordability, first, before aesthetic needs. Commercial and industrial properties can have many types of structures, both large and small, that require roofing, such as barns, sheds, warehouses, car ports, and many others.

Corrugated steel roofing and asphalt shingles are commonly used on all types of commercial and industrial properties, however, corrugated metal is more suitable, for many reasons.

Corrugated Steel Roofing is Suitable for Commercial and Industrial Properties

Corrugated steel roofing is suitable for commercial and industrial properties for a few reasons, mainly, it is light-weight and strong, and it is much easier to install than other roofing materials, such as asphalt shingles. Also, corrugated metal sheets last longer, up to five times longer. If properly maintained, a metal roof can last up to 60 years, depending on the thickness of the panel, the quality of coating, and the grade of the steel roofing sheets.

High-quality corrugated steel roof sheets come in various lengths, thicknesses, and can be cut and fabricated to fit onto any structure, unlike other roofing material. Also, corrugated steel roofing sheets aren’t bland, any more. That’s because these can be coated with specialised polymer paints that stave off corrosion, and that provides an effective barrier to keep buildings warm during cold nights and evenings, and cool during hot days.

Installation for Commercial and Industrial Properties

Most types of roofing materials take a long time to install – many days or weeks, but not steel roofing. It takes only a few short days to install for larger buildings, and only hours for smaller structures. Also, steel roofing requires minimal maintenance, which appeals to commercial and industrial businesses.

Many professional roofers recommend corrugated steel roofing for commercial and industrial properties because it is hardy, light-weight, fire-resistant, corrosion resistant, requires minimal maintenance, available in many colours, and it can be installed in a very short amount of time.
