Need New Siding? Learn Why Corrugated Steel Is the Best Material for the Job

February 13, 2020

You're enjoying a nice, quiet night at home, snuggled into your couch with a nice cup of tea. All of a sudden a massive blizzard appears and rips the exterior wall of your house to shreds! Everything in your house is now frozen like a popsicle!

Ok, so that's a little extreme. But you know it's important to have the best possible stuff as siding for your house to protect your family and home from anything the world throws at you.

Yet, that leaves you with a burning question: what material does the job of siding your walls best?

Well, we're glad you asked. We're here to tell you why corrugated steel is the best material for siding your house! So enough talk: let's get into it!

 

Know Your Corrugated Steel

Corrugated steel forms through a process called roll forming, where metal is put through lines of rollers as sheets to give it the desired shape. To add more specific details to the shape, you simply need to add extra sets of rollers.

This type of metal has been around since World War I, where a man named Peter Nissen designed a hut made of corrugated iron to house troops. It was also later used in designing military vehicles as well.

Although the metal was originally seen as too garish for conventional architecture, many architects have given their own spin on it to great results. One such example is the Guggenheim Museum, designed with corrugated steel by Frank Gehry.

 

So Why Use Corrugated Siding?

For starters, corrugated metal tends to be cheaper than other forms of metal siding you might find. This is thanks to the process it takes to corrugate steel, as it allows modifications to be made to the steel (like adding slits or openings) far easier than other methods.

Corrugated siding will also give you significant protection from the elements thanks to its high level of durability. But wait, there's more: this durability grants the corrugated steel an increased resistance to impact damage, so it can take large objects slamming into it and still be fine.

Being steel, it also gives you resistance against any nosy insects trying to barge their way into your home: while some can eat through wood, they aren't getting through steel.

Finally, corrugated steel sheets tend to be both easier to transport and a lighter weight compared to some other siding materials. So if you feel like installing the steel sheets yourself as a DIY project, you'll have an easier time with it.

 

Time to Put Your Shields Up

Now you know why corrugated steel is the best material for siding your house! But what if you want to get more information on whether it's right for you?
