Construction of a building is incomplete without the roof. Roof protects the inmates of the house from harsh weather condition outside. Moreover, the roof has other purposes also like holding the generator, mobile towers, solar panels, etc. Therefore the roof needs to be very strong and must be able to handle the load of all such things. Apart from simple flat roofs, many constructions have different shapes of rules like dome-shaped and triangular. Designing these types of roofs with both design and strength requires high quality roofing materials and expertise. There are many options of materials used for roofing, however, for some specific purposes, steel roofing is used widely. Steel roofing is done by steel structures which are in the shape of sheets which is fixed in the construction through screws. Steel roofing is durable and strong which is the reason being they being used in various industrial and domestic establishments. Corrugated roofing is done by corrugated galvanized steel which is also called CGI. It is a building material that is produced with the help of hot-dip galvanized sheets made of mild-sheet. These sheets are cold-rolled, producing a corrugated pattern in the sheets. The process of corrugations makes the steel capable of bending without breaking. The corrugated steel sheets are used as a roofing material for various types of constructions and is also a very cost-effective solution.
- Corrugated steel is very strong as its bending ability perpendicular to the direction of the corrugation is very high.
- These roofing materials are versatile and can be used at various places.
- As it is made of galvanized steel, they are rust proof and provide a long term roofing solution.
Corrugated mild steel sheet for a durable roofing solution
This building material is composed of mild steel sheets which undergo the process of hot-dip galvanization and cold-rolling. The process produces corrugated pattern on the sheets. As the bending strength is increased, the sheets become easy to use and durable. As the sheets are lightweight, they can be transported and installed easily. These sheets find application in rural buildings, car shades, small military establishments. These are also useful in covering a garden shed, patio and other such small construction. As the process of installation is easy, you can do it yourself with a few basic tools. The process of installing corrugated sheets is very easy and can be viewed at various DIY websites. You can also hire professionals for the purpose for a better and less time consuming installation. Make sure they choose the dimension of the sheet wisely as its width gets shortened when it is cold rolled. The advantage of the corrugation is increasing in its bending abilities and strength. Roofing materials are made of mild steel and hence can easily be cut, bent, drilled and welded. The roofing material seldom needs to be welded, however, the option of welding is always there. After the process of corrugation, the sheet is coated with zinc, which can vary in degree. The surface is also treated with chromate, phosphate and oil, which makes it shine brighter and also makes it anti-finger print. The wide application of corrugated roofing material makes it a popular choice for roofing material. It is used irrespective of the country. There are several grades of steel that are used to make these roofing materials. These sheets can withstand harsh weather without being rusted. These sheets not only serve as a roofing material, but can also be used for making gates, partitions, panels, etc. As they are light-weight, transporting them to long distance is not difficult. Places that are prone to persistent rains often have these sheets installed as the effect of rain is minimum on them. Their shiny and glossy finish also makes them attractive when installed in the patio or the garden sheds. They are strong enough to stand the harsh weather conditions.
- Steel roofing is a good choice of roofing areas that are not meant for living, such as garage, garden sheds, etc.
- Corrugated roofing is widely used as a steel roofing material as it undergoes the process of cold-rolling and galvanization which makes it stronger and also enhances its capacity to bend in the perpendicular direction of corrugation.
- Other important advantages of using these materials are that they are light-weight, easy to transport and easy to install.
