Long Run Steel

New Zealand Made Long Run Steel

Also commonly known as pre-painted steel, long run metal or even corrugate,  is a lightweight yet incredibly durable material which is sustainable and environmentally friendly. Long-run roofing is easy to maintain, quick to install and readily available throughout New Zealand. It also has no joins which means less wastage and it is less likely to leak so offers your home the best possible protection from the elements.

There are numerous advantages to using Long-run steel for your next residential, commercial, or even industrial building project including:

Choose Long Run metal roofing to save time

As the name suggests, Long-run steel comes in long sheets or panels. These are much quicker and easier to install than smaller sheets or tiles.

Metal Roofing is Environmentally Friendly

Long-run metal roofing is fully recyclable which means after it has served you for many years, it can be recycled and the steel will be reused for something else. You can even get some money back by selling it to a local metal recycler! Check out our post about the sustainability of metal roofing.

Long Run Metal Roofs are Lightweight

The material is incredibly lightweight. This means that if you choose to use it for a building project there will be no additional bracing or more substantial foundations required which could be required for other materials like concrete tiling.

Long Run Steel is Low Maintenance

Long-run steel requires very little upkeep once it has been installed. It is good practice to regularly inspect your roof for damage (especially after big weather events) however your roofing should require minimal cleaning and won’t need repainting for years and years

Durable and Long Lasting

Long-run steel will not rot, it is resistant to mould and mildew and is highly weather resistant (including NZ’s high UV levels). With regular maintenance (minimal cleaning and inspections) it should last for many decades.


Due to the range of colours and profiles, this roof cladding will look equally stunning on commercial buildings such as large warehouses as well as residential buildings. It’s also a common choice for wall cladding thanks to its sleek look, durability and ease of install.


Long-run steel can reflect the sun’s heat which will make your home feel more comfortable during NZ’s often very hot summer days.

The benefits and versatility of pre-painted Long-run Steel make it one of the most popular choices for roofing and cladding in Canterbury. Our Long-run Steel not only boasts a streamlined and modern look, it also guards against the extreme temperatures, harsh UV rays, and salt-laden sea air that takes their toll on any building.

If you are considering your options for roofing or cladding your next residential or commercial project, Long-run Steel might just be your best option. In terms of the points above, it certainly outperforms a lot of other roofing materials and can provide you with a stylish and quality finish.
