Industrial Corrugated Posts

Metal roofs are long-lasting and durable. The upfront cost is offset by their minimal maintenance and ability to outlast traditional asphalt shingles. As prices drop in the second half of 2021, you may want to consider getting a metal roof installed.

What Is Corrugated Metal Roofing?

Metal roofing refers to pre-cut panels of sheet metal that are fasted together using rivets and screws. This type of roofing material comes in a variety of colors, shapes, and finishes. The most popular look is ribbed or waved, but you can select an option that appeals to you and works best for your needs. The finish that you choose is important since this is responsible for keeping the metal in good condition and offering protection from the weather.

  • Galvalume is composed of aluminum and zinc and resists corrosion. This finish is very long-lasting
  • Galvanized is a zinc barrier that prevents corrosion. It’s one of the most popular choices
  • Painted finishes protect the metal from the elements and retain its color well
  • Stainless Steel is an excellent choice to resist corrosion. A number of finishes are available to achieve a look from mirror gloss to brushed.

Each type of finish has its benefits. Which one you should choose depends on your needs and purposes.

Are There Benefits To Metal Roofs?

The many benefits of metal roofing make them a worthy alternative to asphalt shingles. They are fire-resistant and also insect and pest-resistant, as well as environmentally friendly. Many metal roofing materials are manufactured using recycled materials.

One of the most appealing benefits of a metal roof is its longevity. Roofs can be expensive to have installed. When you select a material that lasts, you won’t need to expend that cost very often. Regular shingles may last around 30 years when properly installed and cared for, while some types of metal roofs can last up to 100 years!

The aesthetic of metal roofing materials is appealing as well. You can have the metal panels painted in a wide array of colors. Once you have decided on a finish and look that you like, you can be assured that your new metal roof will retain its appearance well, with little to no corrosion or denting. The extent of its durability depends upon which material and finish you choose for your roof.

Yet another upside to having a metal roof installed is the savings you will experience in energy costs. Metal roofing is highly energy-efficient. Instead of absorbing heat from the sun’s rays, it will reflect it back in the direction it came. The surface of metal roofs is much cooler than most shingles and keeps your home itself cooler. You can save up to 40% on your energy costs with a metal roof.

How Do You Maintain a Metal Roof?

Metal roofs require little in the way of maintenance. Once installed, they don’t require any extensive upkeep. It’s a good idea to have a professional do a thorough inspection every few years, but normally you just need to check them for damage and keep them clean of dirt and debris.

Look for any loose panels, missing rivets, rust spots, and dents. These may need some repairs before greater damage is caused. If you notice any branches or other materials touching the roof, they should be cut back or removed. As long as you clean and examine your roof regularly, you should have no major problems.

What Is the Cost?

Metal roofing costs have been steadily rising during 2020 and the first half of 2021. Thankfully, there is some good news in the steel price updates lately. Costs have come back down significantly in the second half of 2021, making metal roofs more affordable. 

The total cost of your new roof is found by factoring in several different variables. The price of your chosen material is, of course, a big part of the final cost. You also need to consider the size of the project, accessibility and complexity, as well as labor costs.

Another consideration that will affect the price is if the building already has an existing roof. A metal roof can usually be installed over top of an old roof, but two layers of roofing materials are the maximum recommended. Your roof also needs the proper insulation, framing, and decking.

Steel and other types of metal require a greater initial investment but it is well worth it. The durability of metal roofs means they can significantly outlast traditional shingle roofs by decades. You will actually be saving money when you consider how infrequently you will need to replace your roof.

Steel especially is much harder and heavier than most materials, making it a great choice if your home or other building structure takes a beating from regular storms or falling debris. Where a lighter metal like aluminum may dent from a fallen tree branch, steel can withstand a lot of impact without showing any signs of damage.

There are a whole host of benefits that come with a metal roof. It is a solid option that deserves greater exploration. You can customize your new roof in a variety of ways to make a statement or focus on functionality. Talk with a knowledgeable expert to get recommendations and specifications for your own needs.

Corrugated Barn Roof

Whether you were raising horses, harvesting crops, tending to livestock, or pitching in anywhere you were needed, you probably had to deal with early mornings, long days, and tough labor – all needing to be done in rain or shine, on holidays, weekends, and anything else the calendar could throw your way.

That need for rugged work applies to more than just the individuals chipping in. Equipment and materials also need to stand up to the roughest weather, massive strains, and all-day every day support. That’s why corrugated metal is such a popular choice for agricultural structures all across the world.

Not only can corrugated metal panels hold up against wind and sun and rain and ice, but they can hold up against the tests of time, meaning minimal maintenance year in and year out – that’s one less chore on an already rugged workload.

Compared to wood, fiberglass, and other common building materials, corrugated metal also delivers tremendous value considering how long it remains fully functional. The cost savings of building a corrugated steel or aluminum barn are tremendous.

corrugated metal floor decking

The Benefits of Corrugated Floor Decking

Corrugated metal is a lightweight building material that provides remarkable rigidity given its slim profile. That strength makes it an ideal addition to concrete floors in need of extra reinforcement. The addition of steel floor decking means you need less concrete, and less volume associated with that concrete to achieve an ultra-strong flooring foundation. At CBS, we stock and fabricate a wide range of corrugated metal panels designed specifically for reinforcing concrete floors.

Metal Floor Decking Options?


Corrugated floor decking differs from other types corrugated metal in that its ridges are flattened at the top and bottom of their crests and valleys. The squared off style provides a more efficient surface for concrete to adhere to.

We offer a wide variety of floor decking options, ranging from 1.5 inch to 3 inch corrugations. Deeper corrugations will allow for deeper poors and thicker slabs for increased strength. Depending on the demands of your project, you’ll require deeper or shallower slabs. Our floor decking also comes in a variety of substrates including steel and aluminum.

We stock popular sizes of floor decking and we can also custom roll-form panels for your specific needs to cover the precise area you need. You can see our various types of corrugated floor decking here.
