Metal roofs help insulate your home more effectively than their alternatives, saving you up to 40% on your energy costs. We carry a number of Energy Star® approved roofing options from Gerard to keeping your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Also, being made up of at least 30% recycled material, metal roofs have a lower environmental impact than traditional roofing materials.
Unlike traditional roofing materials, metal roofs can help slow the spread of fires. By acting as a heat and flame insulator, your metal roof provides increased safety in the event of a fire. It will also retain a structural integrity longer in fire, meaning a collapse of the roof is less likely.
Hail and rain in the summer, snow accumulation and freezing temperatures in the winter, and strong winds year-round; the unique weather in Southern Alberta can wreak havoc on most roof systems. Your metal roof will protect you from the weight of heavy snow buildup, resist moulding, and stay put in the strongest winds.
With minimal upkeep, your metal roof will last years longer than many other roofing systems. Unlike asphalt shingles, metal roofs don’t shrink or crack, which can lead to premature replacement. Their polymer finishes also retain your roof’s beauty and increase your curb appeal.
