Rusty Corrugated Metal (RCM) has completely altered the mindset of the metal roofing industry. Rusted roofing has been a problem to many roof owners for a number of years. Ironically, "Rusty Roof" is the latest trend in roofing products. Based on the original look of turn-of-the-century mining towns of the west, "Rusty Roof" is new steel designed to look one hundred years old.
Rusty Corrugated Metal is a highly versatile material that has an aesthetically appealing matte finish. Original barn tin is actually galvanized sheet metal that has rusted through in places causing streaking and rust patches. "Rusty Roof" has a similar look but achieves the deep dark rust much quicker than original galvanized roofing. This trend in roofing has not come without strong debate on its functionality. Many argue that "Rusty Roof' won't have the lifespan of other roofing products. To counter this claim, RCM products are designed with a much heavier gauge than normal steel roofing. A few key tips on taking care of a rusty roof can also greatly extend the life of RCM products. Keeping roofs free of debris and falling objects will keep the gauge of rust from being disturbed, therefore extending the life of your roof.
RCM vs. CorTen
Cold rolled steel, was developed as an alternative to A-606 Type 4 (registered trade name CorTen). These two different types of rusty roof look similar in appearance and lifespan, but they differ completely beyond that. CorTen contains copper, chromium, manganese, and nickel which makes this material very expensive and consumptive of natural elements. RCM is cold rolled steel that is widely manufactured for a number of different purposes including roofing. At approximately half the cost, RCM products are by far a better choice for "Rusty Roof."
