ABBOTSFORD, BRITISH COLUMBIA
Corrugated metal roofing is a roofing panel made from wavy cold-bent steel sheet profiles. Corrugated roofing sheets in Abbotsford, BC are typically made of galvanized steel with a polymer coating, but they can also be made of aluminium and stainless steel. The panels are secured together using exposed fasteners, which is a strength and a weakness to this system. On the plus side, the exposed screws makes for a quick, easy and less expensive installation.
Each sheet requires approximately 20 screws to be properly secured. The screw holes reduce the roof's water resistance and make the covering susceptible to leakage. Corrugated roofing is often found in agricultural and construction areas such as on industrial buildings, barns, and commercial and engineered structures.

⅞” corrugated metal roofing is the most common wavy corrugated roofing panel. It gets its name from the rib height of the panel, which is ⅞" inch. The deep round corrugations creates an aesthetically pleasing and durable panel. ⅞” panels are wider and less expensive than ½” Corrugated metal roofing.
