Mission Statement:

 The Frances Rose Foundation is a charity that exclusively commits all of its efforts into research dedicated to finding a cure for Diabetes.


One of the great people that we work closely with started this organization after his daughter was diagnosed with Diabetes. The Frances Rose Foundation’s goal is to raise funds to support aggressive research on diabetes, in the hopes of one day finding the cure. Hy-Grade supports this foundation by sponsoring a hole every year at the Frances Rose Foundation Charity Golf Tournament.

This is our hole from the recent 2nd Annual Frances Rose Foundation Charity Golf Tournament on July 6th 2017:


This is an example of the awesome research that this foundation supports and how soon we could see a permanent cure:

Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre

By | Sponsorships | No Comments

Hy-Grade’s mascot is a turtle named Nailz and we’re often known as “that turtle roofing company.” Each year we donate to the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre (home of Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre) in hopes of helping provide care to Nailz’s friends and family.

Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre is a registered charity whose goal is to protect and conserve Ontario’s native turtles and the habitat in which they live. This is accomplished by operating a turtle hospital that treats, rehabilitates, and releases injured turtles, by performing extensive research in the field to further conservation initiatives, and by running a comprehensive education and outreach program. The OTCC strives to increase awareness of the challenges facing Ontario’s turtles and to inspire individuals to act!

Did you know that 7 out of 8 species of Ontario turtles are at risk?

Happy Birthday Nailz!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Today is our mascot’s Birthday! Nailz was “born” 6 years ago today in 2011! We thought we’d share some info about Nailz with you on his special day.

Why did we pick a turtle (or tortoise, as Lance prefers) for our mascot?

Some species of turtles can live well over 100 years and during their lifetime; they are protected by one shell. This shell protects the turtle from all the elements it’ll endure within its climate. Their shell is durable and will never have to be replaced. Each shell is custom to the turtle it protects and on the inside is made up of a system of bones that support the outer shell. Some turtles also have the ability to expand and contract within their shells for safety while travelling. They are also known to be one of the most calculated and wise reptiles.

All of these attributes can also be used to describe a Hy-Grade Steel Roofing System. It’s a permanent solution that protects your most valuable possession, your home, from Ontario’s harsh climate and temperature changes. Each roofing system is made custom to the home it’s installed on and includes many engineered parts that create the long-lasting, durable finished product. Our system allows for expansion and contraction during temperature variations and without wearing on the fasteners. Our 50 year warranty remains with the roofing system through unlimited transfers and travelling home owners. Hy-Grade only carries one product, and that’s because it’s what is proven to work best in the environment we live in. 29 years of steel roofing experience makes us one of the oldest and wisest companies in the business and is one of the biggest reasons Hy-Grade is Ontario’s #1 Residential Steel Roofing Company! Plus a turtle’s shell closely resembles the sharp look of our steel shakes, doesn’t it?

It was just simply the best choice for us, just like a Hy-Grade is for you. Happy Birthday Nailz!

The Deline’s Story


Installation Date: April 14th, 2014

City: Niagara Falls, Ontario

March 23rd, 2017

We knew we were going to be needing a new roof so my husband began talking to different contractors while he was out working at different job sites.  Many roofers were telling him that in our climate traditional shingles don’t seem to hold up like they used to.  We could be expecting to redo our roof again as we were set to retire, something my husband wasn’t terribly excited about cost-wise.  Several of them were telling him that they thought steel was the smart way to go.  We started to look on line and that’s when we found Hy-Grade!  We liked what we saw, and were impressed with Hy-Grade’s materials & methods and knew this was the way to go!  Many of the steel roofs you see are on much larger homes than ours so we were hoping it wouldn’t look silly on our tiny house!

It was like it was meant to be because shortly after deciding we wanted to do this Hy-Grade’s Anniversary flyer came in our mailbox.  It was like we were being told, yes, do it now! We called and someone was here to talk with us in short order!  The consultant that came to our home was wonderful.  Not only was he really easy to talk to, he showed us photos of his own home which wasn’t a whole lot bigger than ours, which looked fabulous, so that took any of our concerns away.  He thoroughly laid everything out to us, brought a sample of the steel shake and explained exactly how things worked.  He was incredibly patient as we went back and forth between us deciding on a final colour!  To us it was important as this was it, a forever roof, no changing it later!  😉

Since it was right before spring we expected to have to wait to have our roof done, but since our roof was deemed to be in need of doing asap, we were pleasantly surprised at how quickly we received the call that we were next! Just as it was explained to us, supplies were delivered to our driveway when we were told they’d be here.  The two installers arrived the next day.  Very nice, quiet guys who worked amazingly well together.  They knew what they were doing and were extremely efficient at it!   They realized they were going to be short on supplies so they made the call right away to have more stuff delivered.  It was here within a day & they came back on a Sunday to finish our roof!  Not only did they do a fast efficient job, but their attention to detail on the finishing really impressed us!  It was clear that they took great pride in their work!  They did a very thorough clean up before leaving.  There was nothing left that we needed to do other than admire the finished product!   We have people who walk by and notice the roof.  Sometimes they’ll stop and ask us about it. We are more than happy to tell them who did it.  😃

All in all I would have to say our experience with Hy Grade was wonderful from start to finish!

We are quick to offer Hy-Grade up to anyone who mentions they need their roof done.  When anyone says they’re worried about the cost, we always say we believe it’s less than having your roof done the traditional way twice, at current prices, and you can be sure you’ll need to do it at least twice!

I just love how our roof looks now.  Living in an older home, things settle & dip here & there.  With the way Hy-Grade installs, we have a beautiful level roof with a gorgeous finish, which still looks as good today as it did when we had it done 3 years ago!

Since we’ve had our roof done we’ve experienced some nasty weather.  High winds, heavy rainfalls, extremely cold and snowy winters and our roof has held up beautifully.  It gives you such a feeling of security when the weather is terrible that you have a solid roof protecting your home.
