Zinc roof sheets are also referred to as “corrugated roofing” in reference to the distinctive wavy shape of this material. These galvanized metal sheets are typically available in sheets with a length of 8, 10, or 12 feet, and the width may vary widely depending on the style of roofing. The width is measured across the top of the sheet, from edge to edge (not following the contours of the material) which indicates the width of coverage offered by that particular sheet.

In addition to these sizing options, there are many other options to choose from when selecting your home or other structure’s new roofing material. Zinc roof sheets are available in a dazzling array of colors, thicknesses, textures, patterns, and widths. 

Zinc sheets have a wide variety of applications and uses, prized for their lightweightness and durability. Zinc is especially useful due to its high resistance to corrosion, corroding at a rate that is about 1/30th slower than steel. For this reason in particular, zinc sheets are superior to other materials for many different industrial applications where moisture resistance is a key factor. Zinc sheets are used for roof flashing, cathode protection and in many other instances where moisture or chemical resistance is necessary.

While zinc sheets have many different uses across many different industries, they are most commonly used in roofing. When buying materials for any roofing job, it is best to measure ahead of time so that you can get a general idea of how much material you need in advance. When doing a roofing job that requires zinc sheets, it is important to pay close attention to the sizing of the sheets you intend to purchase.

When considering the sizing of zinc sheets (or any metal sheets for that matter) there are 3 parameters you should pay attention to: Length, width and thickness. Each of these parameters are variable, and depending on your project, careful planning will ensure that your project can be completed successfully with the right materials for the job.
