The Hamilton Spectator Business Profile of London Eco-Roof Manufacturing Inc.
Lower prices for metal roofing are here to stay, thanks to London Eco-Roof Manufacturing Inc.
Joe Malec, president of the young firm, says it is a myth that metal roofing systems are only for the super-rich. He says lower prices are key at London Eco-Roof because everyone should be able to afford their own metal roof.
In the past, metal roofing has been viewed as a high-end product only for the few, but he says London Eco-Roof has changed that.
“Our mission is to provide the product to average-earning families,” he insists. “We want to provide the product to normal folks like you and I, and since the last article we have added significantly to our collection of very satisfied clients!”
The first thing prospective customers say to the firm’s sales managers is they are surprised by the economical price being offered.
Metal tile panels are a graceful and durable roofing material, suitable for most pitched roof applications. They combine the traditional look with the latest technology and can be used on residential and commercial buildings, and for replacing old roofs. The tile panels have several protective layers to ensure durability.
It is one of the most lightweight roofing materials available, which is an advantage because it does not require a heavy roof support structure.
One common misconception about metal roofs is that they are noisy inside the home. Tue to the underlying membrane, the double cross-strapping, and the many folds and curves in the metal; not to mention the existing decking, attic insulation and ceiling, they are in fact quieter, and our customers testify to this.
“Our roofs are more complicated to install and time-consuming, but far more durable, secure, and long-lasting,” Malec says. “Forty percent of our work is carpentry to ensure a solid structural base. I would not be surprised if our roof lasted one hundred years, and maybe after 50 years or so, you might paint or treat it to bring back to its original lustre.”
The product is designed to be a permanent roof, not a temporary cover. “Yes put it on once, and on average, it will last longer than we live,” says Malec.
When you invest in a metal roof, he says neighbours will be more aware of the care you take of your home and the importance of making it a more energy-efficient residence.
In most cases, the metal roof increases the resale value of your home by as much as 5 to 7%. The product also comes with a warranty that can be transferred to the new homeowner, which gives you and future owners peace of mind.
In addition, you are going to achieve more savings by applying metal roofing. You will reduce the heat generated through the roof from the sun’s UV rays being absorbed, thereby providing more livable space on your second floor. It means, in summer, your home is cooler by 3-4 degrees, requiring your air conditioner to run up to 25% less often.
