Metal Roofing in PEI is Put to the Test

Modern metal roofing in Prince Edward Island is no doubt a significant investment in the home.  Surrounded by salt water, high-speed winds and sometimes sudden temperature changes, PEI’s unique climate puts any roofing product to the test. With asphalt shingles only lasting 8-10 years on the island, more and more families are coming to the conclusion that going permanent makes a lot more sense.

PEI Reviews

Less than two hours after my call to Acadian Roofing, I had two men on my roof in Charlottetown fixing the problem. Thank You to all the staff at Acadian Roofing.

Coastal Climate Roofing Considerations

  1. Sea Salt Spray: Buildings situated near the ocean are exposed to sea salt particles in the air at all times causing rapid oxidization (rusting). Be sure to check roofing product warranties for exclusions based on distance from the ocean.
  2. High Speed Winds: Environment Canada warnings in the Maritime Provinces report winds up to 110km/hr. Most roofing products will have a line in their warranty about high speed winds. If you live in the Maritimes, be sure to find a product that is guaranteed for at least 110km/hr if not greater.
  3. Moisture and Heat Retention: Humidity and moisture in Maritimes air tend to build up in the home, causing all sorts of moisture related problems. A non-porous roofing product that is placed on a properly ventilated roofing structure (attic or otherwise) can help extend the life of the home in general. Energy efficient cool roofing products are now available in the Eastern Provinces to help mitigate heat retention in the home and save on cooling bills.
