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.
