Corrugated Metal Ideas For The Home

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.

  1. We would like to use corrugated siding in areas where winter snow causes damage. Two places would be around the upper edges of sides at roof line and 4 ft up at bottom of house.

    Can you tell me if this is a good fix forthose areas and can it be done in an architecturally attractive way?

    do you have any photos of examples ?



  2. I am considering using corrugated metal instead of wood or vinyl shutters to replace rotten wood shutters on the home we are purchasing. Thoughts?
