This article is designed to outline some of the many features and benefits of steel roofing.
Durable in Different Weather Conditions
Metal Roofing can be used in both commercial and residential roofing applications. Metal Roofing is utilized in a wide variety of climates because of its ability to with stand countless weather conditions. Metal roofing can withstand wind forces up to 120 miles per hour and resists damage from severe climate fluctuations due to its non porous structure.
-Quality Metal Roofing Materials
Sheet metal and metal roofing products share many similarities they are both made from a metallic coated, high quality, sheet steel. These roofing products come pre-painted which offers corrosion protection while at the same time increasing the aesthetics of the product. Each component of the steel sheet (steel core, metallic coating, and organic coating) is important to the service life of the finished product. There are a range of steel properties and coatings available that provide flexibility in choosing the appropriate material to suit the anticipated environmental conditions and budget.
-Choosing the Right Steel Roofing
Make sure the metal roofing you’re buying carries the right logo. The Canadian Sheet Steel Building Institute (CSSBI) logo identifies steel that will make the grade with the long-lasting performance you require.
-Steel Roofing Installation
Metal roofing is the foremost option among home owner’s associations for the flexibility of the product. A metal roofing system can be installed promptly, so there is less disruption to residents. Panels of steel roofing can be supplied as a continuous length from eave to ridge, so putting in place is rapid. It can be installed over existing asphalt and wood shake roofs, so there is no need for tear-off.
-Style and Colors
There are numerous styles and colours of vertical rib, standing seam and tile steel roofing that complement any style home. The only trouble is deciding which one is best for your home.
-Metal Roof Sustainability
The total recycled content found in Canadian manufactured steel used for metal roofing is a bare minimum of 25% and can be larger than 95% depending on the steel making process. Both these standards stand for industry leading levels of recycled content. Steel is the world’s most recycled material, and in North America, over 70 million tonnes of steel are recycled or exported for recycling annually.
