The Hy-Grade Experience

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.

Expansion & Contraction

By | Our Advantage | No Comments

E & C = Expansion & Contraction

 

This is what... banner

blank nailz pointing (two eyes, no sunglasses, lowered arm)

Hy-Grade Fastening Socket

Everything expands and contracts when the temperature changes, especially metal.

The Hy-Grade shake is made out of galvanized steel and was designed to be fastened with a smooth shank galvanized nail. Notice both the Hy-Grade shakes and fasteners are galvanized, not two different metals. This eliminates the possibility of the metals oxidizing or corroding over time as all dissimilar metals eventually do over a long enough time period.

The socket in the shake allows the metal to Expand and Contract in all directions around the fastener without pulling on the fastener, which over time would otherwise work it loose. All parts of the Hy-Grade system are designed to allow for Expansion and Contraction as well to prevent loosening of the fasteners.

Hy-Grade’s proven and perfected system comes in one design; and one design only! Since 1988 our system has proven its amazing expansion and contraction qualities in Ontario’s temperature extremes. Never once has Hy-Grade been called back for a popped fastener.

It’s simply the design that works best!

We Work Winters

By | Why a Hy-Grade | No Comments

Many people are under the impression that winter and snow mean ‘no-go’ for putting a new roof on their home, cottage and/or church. This just simply isn’t true—not with Hy-Grade’s permanent steel roofing system. Hy-Grade’s roof system goes right on top of your existing roof once we remove any snow. Nothing is exposed & nothing goes to the landfill.

Since we’re discussing metal roofing in the winter/snowy months and, after all, we do live in beautiful Canada – you may be interested to know that snow and ice will slide right off your new metal roof. First, this means no more worrying over the destructive effects of “ice damming” with proper attic insulation and ventilation.. Ice damming is caused when snow melts above the warm section of your roof, the water flows down until it hits the colder roof section and re-freezes. That occurring over time builds up “damn” ice. Secondly, due to our metal roofing system’s coating, snow & ice are shed quickly eliminating concerns about icicle buildup, which can tear off your gutters.

Warranty

By | Why a Hy-Grade | No Comments

The Un-Matched, Indisputable, Most Comprehensive Warranty in Canada!

Here’s Why Hy-Grade Has The Best Warranty In The Business:

Scaled Image IMGP0279To start, there’s a long-lasting, trustworthy company standing behind the warranty. Hy-Grade’s been in business since 1988 under the same name and same owner. That’s 28 years! Longer than almost all other roofing companies! That proves commitment to growth and lasting quality. Here’s the real kicker…Hy-Grade has a family succession plan. Hy-Grade’s not just a business, it’s a legacy. You can be sure that we will be here to honour your warranty for generations to come.

Hy-Grade’s Steel Roofing System provides your home and family with protection from the elements. Our 50 Year No-Leak and Lifetime Workmanship Warranty provides you with the assurance that this will be the last roof you ever need to buy! With Hy-Grade, there’s no warranty “fine print”, exclusions, exceptions, prorations, or limits on transfers. We stand behind the product we manufacture and sell!

There are over 14 000 roofs on homes, cottages, businesses and places of worship, all across Ontario, with warranties still in effect. Hy-Grade performs a quality control (QC) inspection on every single project. Any installation issues that may arise are dealt with promptly. That’s why the installed and completed system is the best steel roof available!

Hy-Grade Steel Shakes are guaranteed against rust perforation for a minimum of 50 years, so you have peace of mind that your roof will not leak. The lifetime workmanship warranty also ensures that you are getting our highest quality of work, guaranteed for the lifetime of your Hy-Grade Steel Roofing System. We make certain that the installed system is top quality and our best work.

Hy-Grade uses a PVC-based coating that has elastic qualities to accommodate metal expansion and contraction, and it is 4 mils thick to make it extremely fade-resistant. Everything exposed to the sun’s UV rays will fade over time, regardless of what some other companies may deem “fade-proof”. Fade resistance is the key and our PVC-based coating accomplishes that.

That’s it! There’s no catch! We’ve perfected the system, have remained open and honest with customers since the beginning, and continually prove our loyalty to you. We truly have the best product on the market and the best warranty to back up our belief.

About Us That Matters

 

Hy-Grade Steel Roofing Reviews

J. Sutherland

Owen Sound, Ontario

“These guys are FANTASTIC!!!. We had a roof installed by Hygrade in 2008. Recently we had a problem (no fault of hygrade) our chimney that we never use now and was built into the roof fell down. I contacted Lance in customer service on Tuesday morning and by Wednesday afternoon the installers were at the house and repaired the roof to the point you would not even know there was ever a chimney there. We are extremely happy with the product and their service 9 years after the install. Recommend Hygrade to anyone. WAY TO GO LANCE!!!!”

S. Rumis

Guelph, Ontario

“We chose a Hy-Grade metal roofing system because of the quality of their product, their great reputation, workmanship and the warranty.”

 

J. Recce

Milton, Ontario

“I am very impressed with the way the roof was prepared before the steel roofing was installed and the product being Canadian.”

S. Hutchinson

Oshawa, Ontario

“It is unfortunate that I have read one or two people that were not happy with their Hy-Grade roof. However, the response from Hy-Grade affirms the commitment this company has to it’s customers and we have experienced this first hand. It took us over a year to finally make the decision and during that time, I researched, compared and asked questions, visited other homes with Hy-Grade roofs and spoke with the homeowners.  Once the commitment was made, we couldn’t be happier.  This is our first winter with the new roof and with the high winds, snow and ice that 2016/2017 winter brought we were secure knowing that our shingles were not going to blow off, that the snow and ice were not going to ice dam like we had with our old roof. All the neighbours admire the high quality and it transformed the look of our home. We know for the next 50 years (or longer) the roof is something we will never have to address again. In addition, we have the assurance knowing that if we do have a problem it only takes a phone call to the office and someone will help us. I want to thank our sales representative for being so patient and answering all of our endless questions, Ted you were awesome.  The crew that showed up to our home were courteous, neat and efficient, any questions that we had they were able to answer. The office staff have always been customer service orientated and friendly, you really do get a sense that they are family. We are happy becoming part of the Hy-Grade family, and understand that as in any family if there are troubles, we trust that they will be there to support and care for us.”
