Permanent Metal Roofing Systems for Oakville

Metal roofing is becoming the preferred choice for local homeowners that have grown tired of disposable asphalt shingles. In Oakville, metal roofs can be seen in newer developments (where young families plan on staying long-term) and in mature neighbourhoods, where cedar shakes have failed to perform. With a broad range of metal roofing product options available, modern metal roofs can complement both contemporary and traditional country manor style homes.

Steel vs Aluminum Roofing

There are many metal roof products available in Ontario. Steel, because of it’s abundance and low cost has been the most widely used roofing base metal (substrate), especially for industrial and agricultural roofing applications. However, over the past couple of decades, aluminum products designed for residential use have made huge gains in popularity. Proven to be the most cost effective and maintenance-free solution over the long term, aluminum will never rust (which is steel’s biggest downfall).
