Another benefit of corrugated roofing is that it has a Class A fire resistance rating. This makes it particularly useful in areas prone to wildfires, as it can provide a safe haven because of its noncombustible properties. Corrugated roofing is also extremely lightweight and helps lighten the load on underlying building structures and doesn't require a lot of frame work to hold up. The lightweight nature of the roofing also makes it simple and inexpensive to install. Additionally, it is naturally resistant to rot and insects, and most types of corrugated roofing are coated with chemicals that inhibit the growth of algae and prevent wear from rusting.

Corrugated roofing can also help alleviate cooling costs in the summer, as its surface helps reflect the sun's rays, which keeps temperatures down. Corrugated roofing is also 100 percent recyclable and environmentally friendly. Finally, corrugated roofing is extremely flexible in an aesthetic sense, allowing the owner to easily customize the appearance of the roof.
