Why a Hy-Grade

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!”

-Cathie & Ron M. in Kawartha Lakes, ON

Energy Savings

With proper insulation and ventilation, a Hy-Grade Steel Roofing System can make heating your home in winter and cooling it in the summer much more efficient. This can help save you money on your energy bills!

Here is an example of a customer who noticed a reduction in his air conditioner’s energy use while we were installing his new Hy-Grade Roof!

“Check out my AC run times. Install started on Monday. On Tuesday the back south side was done and Wednesday the rest was completed. See the reduction of operation %. Monday,Tuesday and Wednesday were all the same temperature. You can see the reduction ‎with the new roof.” – Hy-Grade Customer in Brantford, ON

This roof was installed on July 25-27, 2016 and the temperature outside was around 30 degrees Celsius each day of the installation. Below is a chart showing the temperature in Brantford for each of the dates shown on the Air Conditioning Usage screen:

This photo shows the air conditioning operation %. The final 3 days, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are during installation:

Just one of the many benefits of a Hy-Grade Steel Roofing System.

A Hy-Grade Customer’s Letter of Recommendation

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


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

Happy Birthday Nailz!

By | Uncategorized, Why a Hy-Grade | No Comments

It’s our mascot’s Birthday! Nailz was “born” 7 years ago 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. 30 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 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.

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.
