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.
|STEEL ROOFING||ALUMINUM ROOFING|
|ferrous metal – cannot be guaranteed to never rust||non-ferrous metal – will never rust.|
|ocean air will corrode a steel roof at an accelerated rate||guaranteed at any proximity to the ocean|
|recycled content up to 35%||95% recycled content|
|prone to tension bend staining (TBS)||not prone to TBS|
|weighs over 200lbs/square – check local building code for safe limits||weighs average 40lbs/square – can be installed over up to 2 layers of asphalt|
Both Steel and Aluminum roofing products are considered to be permanent options. Since 50% to 60% of your home’s exterior is the roof it makes a lot of sense to go with a permanent and attractive product that will increase home value. Things you may want to consider before investing on a metal roof include functional lifespan, cosmetic lifespan, energy efficiency, panel design, and installation method.
