Every individual has a role to play in making conscious choices that benefit the planet. Steel roofs are a remarkable solution that not only enhance the durability of your home but also contribute to reducing landfill waste, using sustainable resources, limiting pollution, and conserving energy.
Many factors influence the cost of a permanent Hy-Grade Steel Roof. Variables such as roof size, pitch, design/components, etc. all impact the final metal roof cost. To calculate an accurate quote, a Roofing Consultant will visit you at your home and take measurements on-site. Because we strive to ensure the final price is the same as the quoted price, we never ballpark our quotes!
Double strapping refers to the “frame” built to support and secure your new roof. Hy-Grade’s double-strapped steel roofing system provides ventilation, helping to remove hot air from your attic space and lowering your energy bills in summer. With proper attic insulation and ventilation, double-strapping can also lower your heating bills in the winter.
Thanks to the light weight of a steel roof, removing the existing roof isn’t 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!
Our system is available in 7 colours including Dark Brown, Black, Slate Grey, Hunter’s Green, Canner’s Brown, Charcoal Grey and Tile Red. Check out examples of each colour HERE or upload a photo of your home HERE to see a digitized version of what our roof would look like on your home. You’re sure to find a colour that is perfect for your home and preferences!
One of the keys to the Hy-Grade Steel Roofing System is our double roof strapping system. Double roof strapping gives us the ‘frame’ we need to fasten the steel to your roof deck. Such a frame creates ventilation, helps us level your roof, and holds the nails we use permanently in place. As well, double roof strapping can go right over your existing roof; no need to strip the asphalt! This saves time, money and keeps an average of two tonnes of waste out of our landfills.
