Corrugated galvanized iron was invented all the way back in the 1820s. Now you can find corrugated sheets in numerous types of metals. The best ‘type’ for the environment is reclaimed corrugated metal.
Although manufacturing steel is polluting, corrugated metal’s assets make up slightly for that initial harm. Metal sheets or rolls are lightweight, portable, corrosion-resistant, durable, economical, low maintenance, fire and storm resistant, very long-lasting and easy to recycle.
