The Benefits of a Galvanised Corrugated Iron Roof
Metal roofing is simple, sturdy, and reliable. When it comes to quality roofing materials, you can't go wrong with modern metal sheeting. With almost 200 years of proven experience, there's a reason it's still a popular choice today.
New metal roofs can last for up to 50 years, and offer better durability for homes in areas with strong, frequent storms and intense bouts of rain. The hot-dip galvanised coating means your metal roof is protected against corrosion, while the corrugated design means your metal sheeting is tough enough to take a beating and remain strong.
In addition to being one of the best roofing materials for protection against the elements, metal roofing is recommended for homes in regions that are prone to bushfires or intense rain. Unlike tiles, metal roofing offers better protection against ember attacks, lightning, and other natural disasters.
For quality workmanship and exceptional service, get in touch today. The roofing experts at Upside Down can have a metal roof over your head in no time.
Choosing Your Metal Roof Profile
Unlike tiles which can often only be installed on roofs that fall within a certain pitch range, metal sheeting can be installed on roofs of any pitch. This can give you more flexibility when planning a new roof, and with a large variety of profiles you can even plan.
Types of metal roof sheeting profiles include:
- Striated (or standing steam)
- Bead ribs
- Pencil ribs
Each type of roofing profile offers different pros and cons, and some profiles may be more suitable to your needs.
