Frequently Asked Questions About Metal Roofing

What is Metal Roofing?

A metal roof is a roofing system composed of metal pieces or tiles. A metal roof is incredibly durable, reducing energy costs, and requiring zero maintenance. There are two types of installation systems: exposed fastener systems and hidden fastener systems, also known as standing seam systems. Materials that are commonly used are steel, zinc, aluminum and solid copper.

Can you Install Metal Roofing Over Shingles?

You can install metal roofing over existing shingles. As long as the existing roofing and the decking beneath it are sound, flat, and free of rot. This also reduces labour costs and waste.

Save time by leaving the shingles on and then the old building materials don’t end up in a landfill. This extra layer of shingles also creates a sound barrier, making your home quieter overall.

Our team always inspects each roof before we cover the shingles to ensure the base layer is structurally sound and secure.

How Much Does A Metal Roof Cost?

The cost of a metal roof depends on the material that you choose. On average a metal roof will cost between $6 to $20 per square foot. This means that a metal roof installation on a 1,500 square foot house could cost between $9,000 to $30,000.

Does Metal Roofing Come With A Warranty?

Our steel roofing shingles come with a 50-year warranty. Our metal sheet roofing installations come with a 40-year warranty. We also provide a 5-year workmanship warranty on all our work. Quality workmanship is guaranteed.
