5 Reasons Why Hy-Grade is the Best Choice for Your Last Roof
Since 1988, Hy-Grade has proudly remained a locally owned and operated family business. We pride ourselves in not just designing, but perfecting our permanent steel roofing system. Manufactured in Guelph, Ontario and covering the majority of the province, we’ve installed over 18,000 roofs! That’s over 40 million square feet of roofing. We wholeheartedly believe in our system, here’s why:
1. Expansion & Contraction
Roofing failure will occur unless the steel roofing system is designed with the natural metal expansion and contraction process in mind. Expansion and contraction happens between winter and summer, as well as daily between morning and night, mainly during large temperature swings. Being a Canadian company, this isn’t something we’re unfamiliar with and we’ve come to accept that some days start with a jacket and end in a t-shirt or vice-versa! Keeping our customers in mind while knowing steel will contract when it is cold and expand when it is warm, we knew this had to be accounted for. Expansion and contraction puts stress on the fasteners—especially –screws; that’s why we ONLY use nails to fasten our shakes to your roof.
2. Natural Movement
Our engineered design has been tested to ensure it allows for natural movement that accommodates for the natural expansion and contraction of metal. This not only helps fasteners stay where they need to, but also with shedding water and snow to prevent build-ups over time. This natural movement in our roofing system also allows for improved air flow, which helps prevent the accumulation of moisture and condensation. With proper attic insulation and ventilation the Hy-Grade Steel Roofing System will even help keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
3. 50-Year No-Leak Warranty
We are so confident in our system that every roof we install comes standard with a 50-Year NO Leak Warranty. Unlike warranties from other companies, ours is never prorated and has unlimited owner transfers. This means that even if you sell your home, the new owners are fully covered for the remaining life of the warranty. Our warranty is plainly stated with no uncertain terms, what you see is what you get and we truly believe that every sale we make should be based in that trust and transparency.
4. Lifetime Workmanship Warranty
Not only do we cover you from leaks, we then back that up with our LIFETIME workmanship warranty. That means exactly what it says: the workmanship is warrantied literally forever. All too often we see roofing companies hiring anyone willing to do the job and send them on their way, but we believe you deserve better. We hand-pick every one of our installers and then provide hands-on training so that they meet OUR rigorous standards. You can rest assured that we don’t just leave it there either, our quality control department is key for us having the ability to offer a comprehensive warranty that you can trust. They inspect every roof and make sure it’s done right the first time, not just if an issue arises.
5. More Savings Kept in Your Wallet
Even though our system is the premium roofing solution, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how affordable it is. We control the entire manufacturing process ourselves, which means we’re able to provide our product at wholesale pricing and pass these savings on to you. Not only that, but this roof will last you at least four times the life of a regular asphalt roof! Not only does a Hy-Grade roof return your investment in terms of selling features down the line with our transferrable warranty, but also due to the rapidly increasing prices Canadians have seen just in the last few years. Locking in with a permanent roof today, means savings for years to come – even the unforeseen ones.
