Hi, We have an enquiry for facade cladding using Cor-ten Steel. Could someone recommend me on a reliable source for Cor-ten Steel and provide me some mounting concept for facade cladding? using this material? What are the pros and cons of using this material? is it suitable for roofing applications as well? can this material be roll formed? Thanks in advance, Cheers, TK

The manufacturer of CorTen is US Steel. They are very clear that it should not be used for roofing. One drawback of this material is the runoff from it which causes streaks and stains. If you contact them they may be able to provide additional guidance.
