TRUTEN™ A606 is a weathering steel, most commonly known as Corten, that offers a rustic vintage appearance. Our trademarked blend of Copper, Phosphorus and Silicon form a fine textured oxide surface film that is incredibly resistant to corrosion caused by weather and atmospheric conditions. This superior resistance to corrosion outperforms carbon steels which often display a coarse flaky oxide.
This means your Bridger Steel weathered roof will maintain it's strength and beauty for years to come.
TRUTEN™ A606 has a dark gray appearance. It comes with a light oil coating. Once the oil coating rinses off, your roof will begin to rust naturally.
Sure. If you want a rusted appearance before installation, we can help with a recipe to pre-rust the panels within hours or days that you or your builder can perform. We'll provide our preferred recipe and instructions that should be completed in a well ventilated area.
Climate, pitch and maintenance all play a part in how long your roof will last. Dry climates experience the longest lifespans. Wet climates require additional preparations like installing a high quality underlayment to offer superior protection for your roof.
Although there is no warranty on TRUTEN™ A606 roofing, our trademarked blend of metals in our TRUTEN™ products are designed to stand up to mother nature for superior protection and resistance to corrosion for years beyond what a typical asphalt roof would provide.
Keeping debris off your roof and away from siding is important but there are a few more things we'd like to share so you can get the longest life out of your TRUTEN™ roof. Learn more about caring for your TRUTEN™ roof.
