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).
|STEEL ROOFING||ALUMINUM ROOFING|
|ferrous metal – cannot be guaranteed to never rust||non-ferrous metal – will never rust.|
|commonly installed using problematic battens or strapping||installed using best practice solid decking method.|
|largest portion of cost is for complicated installation||largest portion of cost is for high quality product|
|space between panel and deck trap moisture and condensation||only enough space between panel and deck for thermal break|
|heat retention in summer increase air cooling costs.||heat emissivity and solar reflectivity reduce air cooling costs.|
|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|

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.
