About Permanent Steel Roofing
Will you need to strip the current material off my roof?
Most likely not. The Hy-Grade steel roofing system is designed to be installed over the existing roof. In most cases, the existing roof does not need to be stripped. This also means no materials, like asphalt shingles, are dumped in the landfill.
Will a steel roof be noisy in rain and hail?
No. We strap and install our materials over the existing shingles creating an extra noise barrier. A Hy-Grade metal roof is actually a quieter roof.
Will hail damage my steel roof?
No. Our roofing system is very strong and durable. It will not crack, chip or peel when struck by hail, unlike other roofing materials.
Will a steel roof attract lightning?
No. Steel roofs do not attract lightning. In fact, should your Hy-Grade Roof be hit by lightning, it may be safer than traditional roofing materials since a metal roof will help conduct and dissipate the electrical charge. In addition, a steel roof is non-combustible, so it will not burn if struck by lightning.
Can a Hy-Grade Steel Roof be put on an older home?
Absolutely. Due to the light weight of a steel roof, a “tear-off” of the existing roof is not necessary. Regardless of your home’s age, our steel roof can compliment your home’s overall look and increase its curb appeal.
Will a Hy-Grade Steel Roof add value to my home?
Absolutely. Both the aesthetic and market value of your home is sure to increase in value, up to 75% of the cost of a Hy-Grade steel roofing system goes right into the equity in your home, so says the Appraisal Institute of Canada.
How long does it take to install a Hy-Grade Roof?
Most installations are completed within 3-5 days.
Is there a choice of colours?
Yes. There are seven popular colours to choice from. You’re sure to find one that is perfect for your home.
How much does a Steel Roof cost?
Some steel roofs are cost comparable to asphalt shingles, whereas others are more aligned with slate or tile roofing. It’s important to note that in the long run you will save BIG as you may have to replace an asphalt roof up to 3-4 times during the 50-Year No Leak warranty period of a Hy-Grade permanent steel roof. Not to mention the fact that steel roofs are more ecologically friendly than traditional asphalt roofs, which take centuries to breakdown in our landfills.
How long is your Warranty?
A Lifetime. Our 50-year NO LEAK and Lifetime WORKMANSHIP Warranties are the best in Canada!
