When constructing new roofs or replacing older roofs on their residential property, many individuals may opt for the thicker, more expensive galvanized roofing sheet because of cost considerations. But the thicker, thinner galvanized roofing sheet, particularly when the thickness is only 0.2mm, the more easily chipped, and therefore the weaker the galvanized roofing sheet metal, the more weak the galvanized roofing sheet installed on the roof. That’s why many home-owners and business owners are asking if the thin, inexpensive galvanized roofing sheet materials can be as strong as or stronger than the more expensive galvanized roofing sheet materials. The answer is yes. There are certain properties that make these thin galvanized roofing sheets strong.
Galvanized roofing sheets made of a thin layer of zinc will be just as sturdy as thicker, full hard corrugated sheet materials nha thep tien che. The reason is the surface area, or face of the galvanized roofing sheets will be much greater than the surface area of a traditional full hard corrugated sheet. The reason for this is because it takes a thinner, lighter material to support the weight of the thicker, heavier corrugated sheet. The end result is that the galvanized corrugating roofing sheets will not only be as durable, but they will also be light in weight.
Zinc has many advantageous characteristics when used as an electro-mechanical component. The primary advantage to zinc is its electro-mechanical weakness, or galvanic corrosion resistance. When exposed to salt air, zinc develops a greenish or whitish color which turns into black when exposed to sulfuric air. This property makes the zinc a good corrosion resistance. Corroded zinc can be recycled as well.
A higher price is paid for galvanized steel sheet protection against corrosion, however. The coating will last just as long, but the extra money is paid for the longer service life. The coating will last longer, but the sheet will rust sooner. The extra money paid for the longer service life is not recovered by the higher prices. For the homeowner, this means the additional cost of protecting the metal roof structure is not worth the cost.
One advantage to using corrugated sheet materials is that you can have your corrugated sheet coat applied at the factory. During the manufacturing process, bonding agents are applied on the metal to provide it with electrochemical corrosion resistance. Then the sheet is shipped to the installation facility. The manufacturer and installation personnel know that the coating has been cured for longer service life. The installation crew knows that applying the coating is faster than applying it after the factory has cured it, thus they can perform the painting quicker.
Roofers that choose to paint over a corrugated or galvanized roof may not always be able to achieve the same color coverage that they would from a galvanized corrugated read. Because of the nature of galvanized construction, the color will sometimes fade over time. For the homeowner, however, the extended service life provided by a corrugated read is well worth the additional cost.
