Steel Roofs

When it comes to choosing new roofing for your home, you might think that there is only one option on the market — asphalt shingles. However, steel has been used as a material for residential and commercial roofing for quite some time, and it has proven to be more durable than the more common option.

Why Choose Steel Roofing

Investing in a steel roof for your home today could save you thousands of dollars in the long run. Steel roofs have proven to last two to three times longer than asphalt, surviving the elements for 50 to 60 years. Not only can you cut future costs, but steel roofs are more environmentally friendly than asphalt shingle roofs. Plus, they can be painted, adding a unique feature to your home’s exterior.

How Steel Roofs Are Made

High quality steel panels are custom cut to fit all of the contours of the building. They are then placed over current shingles or over plywood to prevent noisy roofs during rain as well as leaks and mold. Then, the panels are finished to prevent corrosion. Steel roofing comes in a variety of styles and may also be customized to fit your colour preferences simply by using paint. Steel roofs styles that come in the form of panels make the installation process much quicker, cutting down on labor costs as well.

Durable and Weather Resistant

Maintaining a clean, sleek-looking roof is painless with a steel roof. Steel roofs are weatherproof and look better than asphalt roofs year-round. Dirt and grime doesn’t stick to metal roofs as easily because the surface is so slick. If you’re worried about your steel roof fighting a hail storm, you’ll be glad to hear that steel roofs can withstand that too. The steel that’s used for roofing has been chosen for its durability against natural elements, including hail, strong winds, and snow.

An Eco-Friendly Choice

Installing a steel roof is an environmentally friendly addition to your home in many ways. The steel used in metal roofing is usually a combination of new and recycled metal materials. Most shingles end up in landfills while conversely steel roofs are recyclable. Metal roofs are also better at regulating inside temperatures and reducing overall electricity, air conditioning, and heating usage.


Steel roofs come in a variety of styles and can be virtually any colour you can think of. Common steel roofing styles that we work with include standing seam, steel tiles, steel shingles, barn steel-R, and chop and drop. Steel roofs can be left their metal colour or painted any colour you please, adding a unique touch to your home’s exterior that regular asphalt shingles can’t get you.
