Selecting the Appropriate Metal Roofing for Your Home

Selecting the Appropriate Metal Roofing for Your Home

Metal materials for roofs have come a long way since their introduction. Today they can come in very attractive colors and in forms that look like other materials.

Steel and aluminum can be used as roof material. New types of formed sheets can appear to look like other materials such as traditional tile roofing. Metal material can also be painted to mimic natural materials such as clay and aged clay tiles.

You can choose the kind of roof material and colour to go with the look of your home. This can increase its appeal and value. Most houses are built following a particular trend or style. We offer four types of roof profiles available in twelve unique colours *.

You can call us any time and ask for estimates for the material you want. Our professional and courteous staff will arrange an appointment to look at your roof, provide you with all the necessary information and of course to provide you with the estimate for your metal roof.

Metal roofing is known to last for an average of 50 years and many home owners are attracted to the knowledge that they won’t need to replace their roof again anytime in the near future.

Metal roofs may cost more than asphalt shingles up front. However, as petroleum-based product costs go up – and asphalt shingles are petroleum-based – the cost difference is less than it was a few years ago. Finally, if you run a pay-back analysis and figure in the annual energy savings in your heating and cooling bills (depending upon the region you live in), a metal roof can pay for itself in just a few years.

You can use our price comparison calculator to estimate your savings.


*Depending on the profile type, not all colours may be available.
