For protection overhead, metal is the way to go

Originally posted on November 23, 2007 in The Globe and Mail by Mike Holmes.

I love metal roofs – they really stand the test of time. Think of those old barns and farmhouses with metal roofs, still holding up centuries later. Some copper roofs on churches and government buildings are over 500 years old – even high-grade asphalt shingles will only give you a 30 year guarantee.

Yes, they are more expensive – a metal roof will definitely cost you more than an asphalt shingle roof – but they’re still less expensive than slate, tile or cedar shake. And they will last a lot longer.

Homeowners hit the roof

That 25-year warranty on your brand new roof may not be as iron-clad as you think, with legal experts and the country’s leading consumer group warning that Canada falls short when it comes to policing product warranties.

Caledon, Ont., homeowner Mark Florence has learned the hard way that a long-term roofing guarantee may still leave you seriously out of pocket if something goes wrong after the first five years.

His shingle roof, which was just two years old when he bought his property, is now in a bad state of disrepair after just 11 years, far short of the 25-year warranty period.

Yet, once the company involved, IKO, had pro-rated the warranty, it told him less than half of the products would be replaced and he would have to pay for the expensive disposal and labour costs.
