Here are some pointers that will show you why corrugated iron sheets are important as a roofing solution for your home. 

1. Corrugations Make Roofing Sheets Stronger

One of the biggest advantages corrugated sheets have over flat sheets is the extra strength the corrugations give them. Adding rigidity along the entire length of the corrugations and strength in bending, the sheets are prevented from sagging. Ensuring that there are regular supports on your roof to support the sheets will ensure that your roof remains strong and rigid.

2. Drain Water More Effectively Than Flat Sheets

The corrugations allow for quick and easy drainage of rainfall straight off the roof. This method is quite effective. Bitumen roofing sheets specifically must always be fitted at a roof pitch of at least 5 degrees (and anything up to 90 degrees) to allow for easy drainage.

3. Allow for Expansion and Contraction

Most roofing sheets will expand or retract with changes in temperature, this is completely normal and will happen on a day-to-day and seasonal basis. The corrugations have space for the movement to happen and so the material is not damaged in any way during the process and will remain leak free.

4. They Stop Rainwater from Seeping Through

Because Corrugated Sheets are fitted with holes drilled through the crown of the corrugations there is less chance of rainwater seeping through the roof.

5. They Look Better Than Plain Sheets

Many people prefer the aesthetics of a corrugated sheet which can look much more elegant and more expensive than a flat roof (even if it isn’t). They also come in a choice of colours including red, green, brown or black and so are perfect if you want to match your roofing colour to that of another building or make the roof blend into the landscape.
