EPDM Roofing Derby

By the specialist roofing experts

Corrugated roofing refers to roofing made from corrugated iron sheets.

This type of roof is usually used only for low-cost housing because it can be found in almost any country and is easy to assemble without the use of tools, thus making them cheaper than other types. What’s more, they are often easier to maintain because metal roofs need little maintenance aside from an occasional hosing down or power washing with a water/soap mixture (though this may do harm). The downside is that these roofs typically last less time; while many will live up to around 20 years, others might not even survive ten years before needing replacement.

Corrugations also offer less protection against rain damage as compared to slanted roofs where rainfall can run off easily.


Advantages of corrugated roofs include the following:

-metal roofing is often more affordable because it can be found in almost any country and is easy to assemble without the use of tools, thus making them cheaper than other types.

Corrugations also offer less protection against rain damage as compared to slanted roofs where rainfall can run off easily.

– The installation time for this type of roofing material is usually long in comparison with other options like Tar & Gravel roofs where assembly can take only ten minutes; however, metal roofs are often cheaper than most materials since they are found almost anywhere in the world and do not require tools during installation – so they’re easy to install.


A disadvantage of corrugated roofs includes the following:

– A disadvantage is that they require a longer assembly time than other roof types such as Tar & Gravel or Flat Roofs

– Provide little protection against rain damage when compared to slanted roofs (rainfall can run off easily).


Corrugated roofs find useful application in certain areas such as in coastal villages and other waterlogged regions where roofing materials are susceptible to corrosion. With regard to corrosion, corrugated roofs have a longer lifespan than roofs made from other materials. There are several reasons for this. For instance, moisture does not accumulate on a corrugated roof as easily as it accumulates on other types of roofs. As such, corrosion is less likely to occur and the building will last longer without need for repairs or replacement.
