When does the corrosion start on steel roofs?

Steel roofs are found on many industrial buildings due to their protective nature, but unfortunately, they are not as long-lasting as we would hope. Steel roofs rust and corrode over time, but when does the corrosion start?

Many steel roofs can have warranties up to 60 years, but they never guarantee a roof won’t rust! That is because all steel roofs can and eventually will. You can see steel roofs with rust in as little as 18 months after installation.

Corrosion and rust can be a nightmare for any building owner, replacing a steel roof can be very expensive too. That is why corrosion treatments and coatings are so important.
