Kawartha Lakes Steel Roof

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

One of the most valuable sources of information when deciding to replace your roof is other homeowners like yourself. A recent customer in Kawartha Lakes, ON had this to share about their decision to choose a Hy-Grade Steel Roof for their home:

“House is ten years old. Original roof never sealed. Lost shingles or re-nailed every year for the past 10 years. Hy-Grade strapping system was most attractive to me. Shingle design and nailing sequence second to none. Finished product looked even better than expected. Let the winds blow!”

Check out the pictures below, sent in by our customer and more comments:

“I think they [the pictures] show why we had to put a new roof on, and why we selected Hy-Grade.  Yes we are very pleased with the final look but it was the strapping process and the way the shingles are nailed that really impressed us, the fact that the nail goes into the two by two on a diagonal rather than straight down in the flat surface of the steel makes it almost impossible for the nails to pull out.  Our Hy-Grade roof looks FABULOUS!”

Steel Roof FAQs : Frequently Asked Questions

About Permanent Steel Roofing

Question List


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!

Attractive financing can make a permanent Hy-Grade Steel Roof even more affordable. 

When comparing the Hy-Grade roofing solution to “renting” another asphalt roof, the Hy-Grade system is much more affordable. The average lifespan of asphalt shingles is decreasing, while a permanent Hy-Grade roof will be around long after the 50 year warranty. In the 50 year warranty period, most home owners will replace their asphalt shingles 3 to 4 times.

Financing Options! Maybe you’re waiting for an income tax refund? Or maybe it’s a commission or bonus cheque? Or maybe you just want an affordable monthly payment? Regardless of your reasons, Hy-Grade has excellent financing options through several leading lending institutions, like FinanceIt and Home Trust, at very competitive rates. They include fixed and variable rate loans, both secured and unsecured. Your roofing consultant has details about current programs like “no interest – no payments”, deferred payments, equal payments, interest buy-down programs and they can help you determine which options are right for you…OAC.
