With a corrugated metal roofing system, you never have to worry about re-roofing again. Corrugated metal provides many benefits:
VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA
Corrugated metal roofing is a roofing panel made from wavy cold-bent steel sheet profiles. Corrugated roofing sheets in Victoria, BC are typically made of galvanized steel with a polymer coating, but they can also be made of aluminium and stainless steel. This system's exposed fasteners are used to secure the panels together, which is both a strength and a weakness. On the plus side, the exposed screws allow for a quick, simple, and low-cost installation.
Each sheet requires approximately 20 screws to be properly secured. The screw holes reduce the roof's water resistance and make the covering susceptible to leakage. Corrugated roofing is often found in agricultural and construction areas such as on industrial buildings, barns, and commercial and engineered structures.

Corrugated metal roof panels typically have a wavy appearance with "S'' shaped curves. They start off as large round coils of steel and are roll-formed in a machine to get their wavy texture. The two most common types of corrugated metal roofing are ⅞” Corrugated and ½” Corrugated.
⅞” corrugated metal roofing is the most common wavy corrugated roofing panel. It gets its name from the rib height of the panel, which is ⅞" inch. The deep round corrugations creates an aesthetically pleasing and durable panel. ⅞” panels are wider and less expensive than ½” Corrugated metal roofing.
Why consider ⅞” corrugated roofing?
½” corrugated is a traditional and classic metal roofing panel. The smaller wave lengths makes for a visually appealing surface. However, when compared to ⅞" panels, this corrugated panel has some disadvantages which lead to a decrease in demand. It is more expensive, has less strength and durability, fewer colour and gauge options, and takes longer to install.
Why consider ½” corrugated roofing?
Working on a small budget. Corrugated roofing is the most affordable metal roofing option on today's market. It's an excellent choice for homeowners or business owners who want the benefits of a metal roof but are on a tight budget.
When doing DIY installation. When compared to metal shingle roofs or standing seam, corrugated roofing has an easy and straightforward installation. Homeowners can cut down on the cost and install corrugated metal roofing themselves.
Great for agricultural and commercial buildings. Since corrugated roofing has exposed fasteners, it's not the best roofing panel for residential homes. However, this makes it a perfect roofing option for agricultural and commercial buildings. It is cost-effective and easy to install.
On a tight schedule. If on a tight schedule, corrugated roofing panels are readily available at most home improvement stores. This means you can get the materials quickly have have your roof up in no time.
You want a concealed fastener roof. Exposed fasteners on corrugated roofing require more maintenance than concealed fasteners. The screws are also visible from the outside and have the potential to rust and shift over time.
You live in a climate with extreme weather conditions. Corrugated metal is often thinner and has a difficult time withstanding the harsh Canadian climate in Victoria, British Columbia. What's more, exposed fasteners can lead to leaks, which can result in costly water damage.
You want a modern metal roof design. While corrugated metal roof panels are wavy, they don’t fit into the clean line aesthetic of a modern home. Other metal roofing options like standing seam, provides a sleek, modern design for residential homes.
