Corrugated Metal

Corrugated Metal Roof Installations:

Corrugated Metal Roofing materials may be installed several different ways such as on a new construction directly onto plywood sheathing or onto strapping. Corrugated Metal is also quite often installed over an Asphalt Shingle Roof  by installing strapping to the roof over the top of the shingles and then securing the Corrugated Metal to the strapping.

The typical metal roof installation we see today, which is quite often referred to as a Corrugated Metal Roof, may actually be a ribbed metal roofing material which is similar to corrugated metal although it has a slightly different shaped pattern.

Corrugated Metal Roofing

The Corrugated or Ribbed Metal roofing materials are installed by screwing the panels to the underlying surface with a special type of grommet screw. The grommet on the screw is pinched between the metal roofing materials and the head of the screw sealing the hole as the screw is fastened to prevent leaking. These type of metal roofing installations must be assessed prior to the start of the project so all the proper materials are ordered to provide a proper installation as needed in different areas of the roof such as valleys, adjoining walls, chimneys, skylights, valleys, vent pipes, etc.. Each unique aspect of a roof may require special custom bent sections of metal which are bent to specification allowing an installation which will prevent water from entering through the Corrugated Metal Roof surface.

Q) What is the main difference between a Corrugated Metal Roof and a Standing Seam Metal Roof?

A) The Corrugated Metal Roof is installed by penetrating the metal sheathing with special grommet screws to secure the panels to the roof while the Standing Seam Metal Roofing materials are secured by special clips which wrap around the seams and are then secured to the roof surface under the metal so that the Standing seam Metal Roofing materials are not penetrated by the fasteners. The Corrugated or Ribbed Metal Roofing Materials also have a rolling appearance with more smaller 1″ ridges and 8″ valleys while the typical standing Seam Roofing materials will provide about a 20″ wide flat surface with a thin 1/8″ thick by 1 1/2 ” tall straight Standing Seam. So in summary it is the appearance and probably more importantly the way the materials are attached to the roof surface as well as the Standing Seam Metal typically being about 25% more expensive of an installation.

Q) Will the corrugated Metal roof leak if the screws are penetrating the metal surface during installation?

A) These screws are designed to seal the penetration so that leaks will not occur?

Q) What is the difference between an Asphalt Shingle Roof Installation vs. A Corrugated Metal Roof or a Ribbed Metal Roof Installation?

A) The major difference for most people is price and life expectancy, although for some it goes back to the energy efficiency, or the ability to shed snow and water. The Corrugated Metal Roof will cost as an average example 25% more than the Asphalt Shingle Roof, but you may replace your Asphalt Shingle Roof once or maybe twice before the corrugated metal roof which may end up costing you more than 3 or 4 times the price of the Corrugated Metal Roof in the long run. For many people the average 40 year life expectancy of the Corrugated Metal Roofing Materials will outlast the time they plan to own their home making it the last roof they will ever have to install or replace.

Q) What is the life expectancy of A Corrugated or Ribbed Metal Roof?

A) The Corrugated or Ribbed Roof has a life expectancy of 20 to 50 years and has been known to last up into the 100 year range.

Q) Does the Corrugated or Ribbed Metal Roof provide any other benefits or value?

A) The Corrugated or Ribbed Metal Roofing materials have been known to reduce energy bills as they reflect the suns rays, they also tend to drain off quicker in rain or snow storms making them more appealing for some people in different climates.
