Product Description

What are GI Roofing Panels?

GI roofing sheet is short for galvanized iron roofing sheet. It is made of galvanized steel sheet for roofing and coated with zinc. The zinc coating provides moisture and oxygen protection to the base steel. According to the galvanizing process, it can be divided into hot-dip galvanized steel sheet and electro-galvanized steel sheet.

The corrugated design will increase its strength, allowing it to withstand harsh weather conditions. Common designs include wavy, trapezoidal designs, ribbed galvanized roof panels, and more. It can be used as a single-ply panel, clad over an existing roof, or as a steel sandwich panel.

How long will a galvanized steel roof last?

Generally, the galvanized steel roof can be used for more than 30 years. Under ideal conditions, it can live up to 60 years. However, if you are near or on the beach, or in an industrial area, your roof may only last 10 years, depending on weathering conditions and corrosive environments. In fact, the service life of galvanized steel roof panels mainly depends on the thickness of the galvanized layer and the use environment. To prolong its life, you can periodically wash your roof to remove any salt or acid from the surface. Also, you need to choose the right corrugated roofing sheets for your roof.

Will Galvanized Steel Roof Sheets Rust?

The answer is yes, especially when exposed to weather conditions for an extended period of time. But it's very slow. Galvanized steel roofing panels are simply covered with a layer of zinc to prevent oxidation and rust. However, when the galvanized layer is cracked, the base material will rust.

1. Choose the appropriate thickness of the galvanized layer
Generally speaking, the thicker the galvanized layer, the longer the service life. Our GI roofs are mainly made of hot-dip galvanized steel sheets with a galvanizing weight of 40 g/m 2 to 275 g/m 2 . If your shingles are used in corrosive environments, such as marine or chemical industrial areas, you can choose a thicker zinc-coated roof.

2. Paint with colored paints

To prolong the life of your roof, you can also paint your shingles to prevent rust and keep them looking good.

3. Regular maintenance

Galvanized steel roof panels require almost no maintenance. However, regular maintenance, such as washing with water, can remove corrosion factors and prolong the service life.
