Saving The Environment With Eco-Friendly Hy-Grade Steel Roofing
Did you know? Each year an estimated 15 million roofing square (1 square equals 100 square feet) of asphalt shingles are installed on residential and commercial steep roof buildings across Canada. And when you consider that an Ontario roof covered with a 25 year shingle actually has a life expectancy of only 7-12 years, it becomes quite apparent that a Hy-Grade steel roof is the best value on the market today.
You’ll Replace Your Asphalt Shingles 3 to 4 Times During the 50 Year Warranty Period of a Hy-Grade Steel Roof
Considering today’s changing economic times and environmental concerns, a Hy-Grade steel roofing system just makes sense. Sure—depending on the size & complexity of your roof, you could pay 2 to 3 times less for an asphalt roof—up front. But over the lifetime of a Hy-Grade metal roof, you can expect that same asphalt roof to cost more than twice as much. As a permanent solution to your roofing needs, a Hy-Grade steel roof offers:
- Energy Savings
- No-Nonsense 50-year No Leak and Lifetime Workmanship Warranties
The Ontario Building Code limits the number of layers of shingles on any roof to a maximum of two. But what happens to all of those shingles that are stripped from roofs each year? 95% of them end up in landfills; currently only 5% of asphalt shingles are directed away from landfills through recycling.
A permanent Hy-Grade steel roofing system is installed directly over your existing roof eliminating the need for stripping and disposing of the asphalt. With a permanent Hy-Grade metal roof, you will be helping save the environment and save money by eliminating the need to strip and dispose of the used roofing materials.
Save Up To 30% on Energy Bills
Hy-Grade’s double wood strapped steel roofing system affords the opportunity to keep asphalt roofing material out of landfills while providing self-ventilation which helps save up to 30% on your energy bills. Convection currents of warm air rise in the 5-6cm strapping gap between your old asphalt roof your new Hy-Grade steel roofing system taking hot attic air out with it through Hy-Grade’s roof vent at the ridges. Many Hy-Grade customers report comfortable conditions in rooms that were previously too warm in the summer due to this self-ventilating aspect. Along with proper attic insulation and ventilation, your Hy-Grade steel roof also saves money in the winter.
