Hy-Grade’s double strapped steel roofing system helps remove hotter air from your attic space(s) due to its self-ventilation capabilities which lowers your energy bills in the summer. Along with proper attic insulation and ventilation it can lower your heating bills in the winter too. We’ve evaluated no wood strapping, single wood strapping and double wood strapping. We choose to DOUBLE STRAP.
Thanks to the lightweight of a steel roof, a “tear-off” of the existing roof is not necessary. Regardless of your home’s age, our steel roof can complement your home’s overall look and increase its curb appeal. Ask your local Roofing Consultant to see pictures of the different types of homes we’ve installed our roof on. We have over 17,000 examples of many different kinds of buildings!
It will! Both the aesthetic and market value of your home is sure to increase in value. More and more homeowners are telling us that their home sold faster and at a higher price because of their decision to install a Hy-Grade Steel Roofing System. While it’s difficult to provide an overall added value to your home, as this fluctuates with the real estate market, future homeowners understand the value of a steel roof and are willing to pay more for the peace of mind it brings.
Installation time can vary by roof size, pitch, components, crew size, crew speed, etc. On an average sized home with average pitch and components, most installations are completed within 3-5 days. You are receiving a complete roofing system with many non-visible engineered components below the steel shakes. It is more labour intensive than other roofing options, but also lasts much, much longer!

The short answer is YES! 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!
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 saving time and associated costs. This also means no materials, like asphalt shingles, are dumped in the landfill. Read how this helps make a Hy-Grade Steel roof environmentally friendly.
The Hy-Grade Steel Roofing System is made out of Canadian steel, coming from Hamilton, Ontario. It’s 26 gauge (with “gauge” the lower the number the thicker the metal), galvanized (G-90) on both sides (so in effect G-180 or double galvanized), and coated in seven colours.
We have found galvanized Canadian steel to be the overall best material for our premier, engineered steel roofing system. Steel from out of country can lead to many issues, the quality being the biggest. There is little guarantee on the exact gauge and treatment it received, which can then lead to coating issues. If the steel surface is not prepped properly, coatings can fail prematurely and there is no guarantee that the galvanizing will prevent rust. We are firm believers that supporting local business is not just the best way to operate but it keeps quality higher and puts money back into our Canadian economy.
