Red Metal Roof in Scarborough

Metal Roofing in Scarborough has gained momentum as housing prices continue to rise.

“Homeowners planning for the future don’t want to have to re-roof continually once they have retired and are on a fixed income.”

Explains Abe Reimer, Project Manager for Classic Products Roofing Systems. “The other big trend we have noticed is that young first time home buyers plan to stay in their homes long-term and are taking a ‘one-and-done’ approach to their roof.”

Steel vs Aluminum Roofing

There are many metal roof products available in Scarborough. Steel, because of it’s abundance and low cost is quite common, but 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).
