Our roofs work WITH nature, to ensure that they can withstand the extreme weather. We do NOT use the problem-prone strapping system, that causes condensation. We do NOT put the screws through the panels. Instead, we install your new roof with tornado clips. All panels interlock with each other, the trim, and even the clips. This allows the entire roof to expand and contract without loosening screws over time. It is a true floating roof, that withstands winds of up to 200 km/hr.
HIGHEST STANDARDS IN THE INDUSTRY FOR:
Withstanding extreme weather
Roofing facts have changed dramatically over the past 20 years. With the extreme weather and increased UV worsening each year, previous industry standards no longer apply. These conditions are particularly difficult on roofs, because they are exposed more than any other surface. Roofs also protect the rest of your home from this extreme weather. Asphalt shingle, fibre glass, and regular metal roofs simply no longer stand up to this abuse.
Deck-mounted steel roofs outperform strapped metal roofs for a long list of reasons, including sound level. The main reason, however, is that strapped roofs create a gap. The top of that gap (metal) gets hot, while the bottom (your existing roof) does not. This temperature difference is literally the definition of how you create condensation. Instead, our deck-mounted roof is installed directly onto your current roof.
Deck mounted metal
Roofs of Steel outperforms other deck mounted steel roofs because our system uses sliding tornado clips that interlock with the panels. This allows the panels to expand and contract without moving the clips or the screws used to attach them. This means that those screws will not be wiggled loose, and therefore do not need maintenance. In essence, we create a truly floating roof that adjusts to various weather conditions, while it is still anchored down with tornado clips that are screwed down at every foot. The famous Kynar 500 finish used, is the highest quality in the industry – easily outperforming other paints.
Beautiful, organic look with numerous pattern and colour choices.
Asphalt shingle and fibre glass type roofs
Metal roofs outperform traditional asphalt or fibre glass shingle roofs by decades. This is especially true since asphalt shingles and their relatives no longer have asbestos. With the asbestos, they lasted 25 to 35 years. Without it, we are now replacing these roofs on average at 8 – 10 years. Whatever substitute material is added, such as fibreglass, whatever the shingles are called, and whatever the warranty states – we are seeing the same average life expectancy. You never stop paying for repairs and replacement, and it does NOT increase the value of your home.
Steel roofs outperform aluminum roofs because aluminum is a soft metal that also expands and contracts at twice the rate of steel. Both aspects are a deal-breaker when you add extreme weather conditions.
At Roofs of Steel, we make only one exception in our quality steel product line: Malarkey high performance, actively smog-reducing asphalt shingles. They have been proven by the American Insurance Association to bring everything they promise – including their 50 year leak-proof and streak-proof warranty and environmentally sound production. After comprehensive testing, the association awarded 5 stars to Malarkey – the only company to receive this rating.
