A Little Corrugated Roofing History

Corrugated roofing, or more precisely galvanized steel, has been around for centuries, and techniques aimed at improving its qualities have been developed since the 1840’s. For example, although iron and steel are relatively strong and cheap, they are prone to corrosion in air and water. The galvanizing of corrugated roofing provides an extra layer of zinc-alloy protection against this, and also strengthens it in the process. With new and improved galvanizing and pressing methods, sheet corrugated roofing has become a durable, lightweight, and economical roofing choice.
