Corrugated metal roofing systems can add value to commercial buildings on many levels, from reliable weather protection and proven longevity to energy code compliance, carbon emission reduction, operational savings, higher property values, and enhanced occupant comfort.
Here are more benefits of corrugated metal roofing:
Unlike roofing shingles which often expose buildings to leaks, corrugated roofing keeps the rest of the building dry. Proper installation is required to guarantee this. The appropriate coatings including epoxy and ceramic coatings also enhance their waterproof properties.
Corrugated metal roofs last longer thanks to the ridges and grooves that make up for their lightweight nature. The fact that they are not susceptible to corrosion and wearing guarantees their durability. Their noncombustible properties, on the other hand, ensures that they can withstand fire. They do not cave under extreme weather conditions.
You won’t need to use up a lot of material for structural support thanks to the lightweight nature of corrugated metals. The load on installation is also greatly reduced. You can always provide the aesthetic appeal that your clients desire with the right finish. Ideally, any customization plan can be effectively achieved.
Enhanced indoor comfort
Corrugated metal roofs can function as cool roofs helping business owners save on annual cooling costs by repelling, rather than absorbing, heat during summer. A comfortable working environment subsequently enhances employees’ productivity.
Increased property value
Corrugated metal roofs not only help you save on annual utility bills but they can also help commercial buildings command higher rents and selling prices. Markets are also taking notice that energy efficient buildings carry significant economic advantages.
Reduced environmental impact
With climate change rearing its ugly face, the need for environmentally friendly products cannot be overemphasized. Corrugated roofing materials are recyclable and suitable for any project that is focused on achieving sustainability.
Traditional roofing systems require regular maintenance practices to guarantee their durability. For corrugated roofs, you’ll only need to re-coat the panels once in a long while to take care of the corroded portions. To maintain water-tightness, you may also need to re-tighten the exposed fasteners.
Superior energy conservation
Although low maintenance and durability help keep long-term costs low, a corrugated metal roof design also helps conserve energy resulting in substantial savings over a commercial building’s life.
Choosing the ideal roofing design
Corrugated metal roofs can either be aluminum, stainless steel or copper and are told apart by their appearance and costs. When ranked in terms of quality and value, corrugated aluminum roofing stands out from the rest. Its rust resistance ability and flexibility makes it a popular option for a host of building firms.
Stainless steel roofing panels are easily identifiable thanks to their natural gray finish. Corrugated copper roofing is an expensive alternative even though its installation process is quite simple. The ultimate choice largely depends on your budget and the goals you intend to meet. If you are not keen on looking at the specific differences, then the standard corrugated metal or standard seam panels should have you covered.
