Corrugated Steel: What is it and Why it Makes for Good Siding

A 3/4 view of a home with sheet metal siding on some parts of it. There are blue skies in the background Deciding on the best building materials can be difficult. There are many options to weigh when planning the future of your property. People with commercial and agricultural buildings on their property often turn to corrugated steel panels for long-term solutions to their roofing and siding needs. Corrugated steel has become a top choice for folks with these types of buildings. In recent years, people have begun to add corrugated steel to their residential homes as a roofing or siding material. This post will go over what this material is and the benefits it offers for your home. 

Wait, What is Corrugated Steel?

There are many patterns to choose from when you select your corrugated steel sheets. In the early 1800s, this material became popular due to its being prefabricated and its ability to be quickly and easily added to structures. 

Skipping ahead to the present, the process for creating corrugated steel sheets has been refined. The sheets are made in a cold-form process. This process includes pressing the sheets flat then running them through a roll former. The corrugations or shapes get added to the sheet during the roll forming procedure. Once these processes are done, the sheets are cut to the specified length. 

Benefits of Choosing Corrugated Metal Siding

Now, let’s take a look at some of the benefits metal siding offers you and your home. 

  • Strong durability to protect your building - Corrugated steel will withstand pelting of the elements including harsh hail, rain, and wind. This material also helps resist pests, fire damage, and water penetration that can lead to rotting. 
  • Resistant to dents and warping - Not only does this material resist the elements, but it can also stand up to the impact of objects thrown around during intense storms such as hurricanes or tornadoes. It also is up to four times less likely to warp or expand as vinyl siding. 
  • Low maintenance requirements for a long lifespan - Kick back and relax as your corrugated steel siding will require minimal upkeep. In the first few decades, you will only need to spray down the outside with water to keep the dust away. After these first few decades, adding a re-coating product will continue to extend the life of your siding. Owners who treat their corrugated steel right will typically see their one-time purchase last for 50+ years!

With its long life and sturdy durability, corrugated steel can end up saving you loads of money in the long run. Owners of commercial and agricultural buildings, as well as homeowners, continue to invest in this material to avoid maintenance and gain value for decades to come.

The Mansea Metal Difference

We Are The Manufacturer

Most of the companies who advertise metal roofing and siding or post-frame buildings are simply reselling products produced by someone else. We produce our own products from rolled steel and have large indoor yards that keep our lumber protected. That way, we control the quality and time of delivery to you. And that creates jobs right here in your home town.

Higher Quality Steel with Superior Finishes

The truth is not all steel is alike, especially when it comes to finishes. That’s why we use Sherwin-Williams WeatherXL™ Coil Coatings. Created to withstand most anything that comes its way, designed to maintain extreme resistance to abrasion, chipping and marring with tremendous color and gloss retention. And you get to select your favorites from more than 22 striking color options.

You Won’t Be Shorted On Lumber

When we price a building package, we give you everything you need to ensure structural integrity. Like longer gable posts that extend to the top of the truss, not just tying in at the bottom. And long-lasting pressure-treated wood measuring .60 CCA. You won’t get this quality at a ‘big box’ store. Plus, we use true 6x6’s along with 2x10’s and 2x12’s that are #1 grade.
