Metal Roofing

Roofing you can count on … for years to come

We install and repair metal roofing as well as shingle roofing.

Metal roofing is lightweight – in fact it only weighs about 1-3lbs per square foot. As a result, you can save on the engineering and building of the supporting structure – meaning it’s faster and more efficient to install.

Metal roofing can, in some cases, even be installed over old shingles. As long as the existing roofing and the decking beneath it are sound, flat, and free of rot, metal roofing can usually be installed over the top of one old layer of asphalt shingles, reducing labour (in tearing off the old shingles) and waste (old building materials ending up in a landfill). If our team is installing a metal roof over an old asphalt roof, we vent it at the peak. Did you know that new builds with metal roofing don’t need to be vented? Metal roofing doesn’t need to be cooled. 

Why choose metal roofing?

Metal roofing lasts 50 years – you’d have to replace asphalt roofing three times over in that period of time

With trim, the Ruggles team takes the extra time needed, paying attention to the through lines to make sure every part of our roofing matches up perfectly. An eye for detail and the aesthetic of the finished job is just as important to us as the quality and durability of the materials we use and the work we do.

We have a team seven strong dedicated to metal roofing. We install exposed fastener systems, as well as hidden fastener systems (also known as standing seam systems). Our steel roofing shingles come with a 50-year warranty. Our metal sheet roofing installations come with a 40-year warranty.

After a metal roof installation, some folks worry about gaining easy access to clean their chimney. We’ve got you covered – our crew can build steps (a snow guard) so that you can safely step up to your chimney – it acts as a secure stepping block so you can get your footing atop the roof. 

With the strong winds the East Coast is known for, asphalt shingles can start to blow off your roof as soon as 12 months after they’re installed. Choosing metal roofing is not only lasting and low maintenance, it will give you peace of mind.
