At last year’s event we ran a contest to Win ½ Your Roof! We are excited to announce the winner of this contest, Jim in Clifford, ON! We met Jim last year at the 2016 IPM where he requested a quote and entered our contest. Just a short while later, Jim chose permanent peace-of-mind with a Hy-Grade Steel Roofing System and we drew his name to win our contest!

A Hy-Grade Customer’s Letter of Recommendation

By | Our Advantage, Why a Hy-Grade | No Comments

Hi,

My name is Alex MacEachern. My wife and I live at 11 Blue Heron Dr. in Mono,ON (Orangeville area). After years of repairing shingles we decided to put a steel roof on and be done with roof problems.We chose Hy-Grade and here’s why:

After looking into the steel roof industry Hy-Grade seemed to have those important qualities we were looking for. Product quality. A strong track record with customer satisfaction. Installation expertise. A meaningful guarantee.

We made the right choice. Everything went as smooth as possible. You should see our house now. (Drive by someday)

In addition to the obvious benefits I had not even thought of the incredible feeling of satisfaction we now have.

Some other points:

  1. Our insurance was actually REDUCED.
  2. When it rains (we have had some massive downpours) the sound is no more noticeable than with shingles.
  3. Neighbors keep commenting on the beauty of the house.
  4. Rhonda (our Roofing Consultant) was terrific. No high pressure, assisted with financing, answered all or questions and stayed connected until the job was completed.

In closing let me say that I highly recommend Hy-Grade.

I am NOT being paid for this letter. It’s a pleasure to write it.

Alex MacEachern

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!
