10 Great Reasons to Install Steel Shingles

1. STEEL SHINGLES ARE LONG-LASTING

You don’t want to have to re-roof in 10 or 15 years; steel shingles are an investment that pays for itself over and over again as times passes. At Western Metal Roofing, our steel shingles are long-lasting and carry a transferable 50-year warranty which increases the resale value of your house.

2. ATTRACTIVE AND LIGHTWEIGHT

Because steel shingles are aesthetically pleasing to the eye with vibrant colours in a matte finish that blends in with your neighbourhood and they look great on any type of roof. In addition, they are lightweight — at least 60 percent lighter — and more resistant than asphalt shingles, concrete and clay tiles, cedar shakes and slate roofing materials.

3. STRONGER THAN ALUMINUM

It is a fact that steel shingles are stronger, thus will not dent as easily, yet are less expensive that aluminum shingles. In time, aluminum shingles will deteriorate under the effect of oxidization.

4. RUST RESISTANT

Because our steel shingles are protected with a corrosion-resistant first coating of zinc and aluminum called GALVALUME, then a second coating of primer paint and finally, a third coating of an oven-baked PVDF paint film with added Kynar 500® resin.

5. DURABILITY

Because our steel shingles won’t curl, crack, rot, break, chip, peel, streak or perforate under normal use. Neither will they leave ugly, long, dark, vertical tar streaks and shed loose granules to clog your gutters like asphalt shingles do, as they have a smooth finish.

6. RESISTANT TO 241 KM/H OR 150 mph WINDS

Because our steel singles will resist driving acid rain, ice and hail storms, heavy sleet and snow falls, wind gusts up to 241 km/h or 150 mph, stinging frost, blistering sun, insects, pine needles, and even burning embers from brush or forest fires. This is pretty important here in Alberta.

7. NOT SUBJECT TO VARIABLE OIL PRICES

Because our steel shingles are manufactured with new and recycled steel, and are not subject to the fluctuations in the cost of fossil fuels and world market oil prices.

8. COOL-ROOF TECHNOLOGY

Because steel shingles enjoy the most advanced Cool Roof® solar reflection technology ensuring exceptional protection from solar radiation and reducing the cost of air-conditioning.

9. ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY & RECYCLABLE

Contrary to asphalt shingles clogging our landfill sites after their useful life, our steel shingles are made in part from recycled steel and are 100% recyclable at the end of their extended life, thereby contributing to the protection of our environment.

10. HIGHER RESALE VALUE

With their 50-year transferable warranty, our steel shingles bring added value to your house. Contrary to a house with a roof covered with asphalt shingles, a home with a steel roof from Western Metal Roofing will retain a higher resale market value when you are ready to move on.

With all these features and benefits, why would you choose any other type of roofing material?
