What is Galvanized Steel?
You may have heard of galvanized steel before without knowing exactly what it is – so, what separates it from regular steel? Galvanized steel is where a base layer of steel has a protective zinc coating applied to it, in an effort to prevent rusting. This is done through a hot-dip process, and this method allows us to conjure up different coating thicknesses depending on the reasons for the application. You can get a range of different thicknesses for your roofing sheets when you decide to invest in our services – and we’ll be able to advise you on which might be most suitable for you.
More than ever before, people need to behave in an environmentally sustainable way, and one of the ways in which we’re able to do this is through the use of galvanized steel roofing. This is a very eco-friendly material choice as it’s totally recyclable, which isn’t the case for lots of other metals. It also doesn’t require a lot of energy to produce, and because it lasts for such a long time, the life cycle energy costs can be considered incredibly low. When you think about the growing impacts of climate change, this is no small benefit in its favor.
As you’d expect from a variant of steel, galvanized steel has an array of practical qualities that make it an excellent choice for your roofing material. You should expect your galvanized steel roof to last for decades without seeing any major decay or deterioration, which is significantly longer than you’d get from unprotected steel, asphalt, and certainly wood. It’ll also stand up to precipitation and impacts pretty well, and because it’s still quite lightweight, it won’t put much stress on your property’s general structure.
Galvanized steel is one of the most affordable roofing materials you can invest in when you consider the life cycle costs involved. Although it has a higher initial upfront cost than some other choices, you are expecting to have this roof for decades, so you need to consider the costs over that whole period – and that’s where it really comes into its own. None of the other non-metal roofing material choices can stand up to the low maintenance costs possible through galvanized steel, and most of the other metal roofing materials will have a higher upfront cost.
