What You Need To Know About Corrugated Roofing

A roof is like the dog species. There are many different breeds of roof, and many variations within the breed. Picking the best roof for you can feel a bit like trying to pick the Best In Show at the Westminster Dog Show. They all look like dogs. So how can you tell which one is the best?

If you live in rainy climates, consider corrugate roofing. Instead of flat tiles or shingles, corrugated roofing consists of a series of little waves. This is great for drainage. You donít want a ton of water or snow piling up on your roof. So if you need a slanted roof, corrugated roofing is a long-lasting, light weight option. Many roofing companies prefer corrugated roofing as itís relatively easy to install, no matter what material itís made out of. Many corrugating roofing tiles or sheets can be altered to make your home look prettier.

Types Of Corrugated Roofing

Corrugated roofing can some in stainless steel, coated or painted steel, fiberglass, slate, ceramic, asphalt or aluminum. How can you choose? Like choosing a breed of dog, there are advantages and disadvantages of each breed. The dog may be pretty, but will he fit in with your lifestyle? This is the same as with choosing corrugated roofing materials. What kind of climate do you live in? Whatís the rainfall? Are you in a city, country or a desert?

For example, if you live in a very hot place, forget about fiberglass, which might melt, or metal, which might heat up your house uncomfortably in the summer. A kind of false ceiling insulation can help counteract a metal corrugated roof into turning your home into an oven, but that would be an extra expense. If you live in an extremely rainy area, like India, you really donít want corrugated sheet metal roofs if you can help it. The noise of the rain hitting the roof can often be deafening. Aluminum also dents easily, so you might not want to choose it if you live under a lot of trees.

There are still some health concerns with anything having to do with asbestos, even though asbestos is much safer to use outside of your house than inside of it. The advantage of asbestos corrugated roofing is that itís long lasting and less expensive than other materials.

You donít have to make this decision alone. There are many online sources, books, roofing specialists and even hardware store employees who can help you find your homeís best friend.
