Metal roofing refers to all roofing products composed of various types of metal, such as aluminum, copper, steel, etc. It is the most durable, longest-lasting, and energy-efficient roofing material available. Also, it has different looks. Various designs are available to suit commercial or industrial properties.

The benefits of sheet metal roofing can be summed up as:

  • Sheet metal roofs protect against natural calamities like hailstorms, high winds and fire.

  • Metal roofs typically last two to three times longer than traditional roofing materials using asphalt, tile and wood.

  • They are extremely energy-efficient and can reduce cooling costs by up to 25%.

  • A metal roof owner can get up to a 35% discount on home insurance premiums.


Although asphalt shingles are the cheapest roofing material on the market, they are significantly behind sheet metal in longevity, energy efficiency and sustainability as they:

  • Need to be replaced every 12 years in regions prone to tornadoes, hailstorms, hurricanes and other harsh weather conditions.

  • Due to their petroleum base, they absorb heat like sponges and radiate heat down into the home below, making them worse in energy efficiency and, thus, the worst-performing roofing materials.

​To sum up, sheet metal roofing is proving to be the most economical and environmentally friendly option for industrial and commercial buildings, with shingles, shakes, and tiles available in an aesthetic look.

Sheet Metal Roofing Maintenance Tips/Do’s and Don’ts


Maintaining a sheet metal roof is essential to ensure its longevity and performance. Here’s a comprehensive guide on the do’s and don’ts of sheet metal roofing maintenance:

    Prevent branches from contacting the roof to avoid physical damage.

  • Gutter maintenance:
    Keep gutters cleaned out to prevent water buildup and potential damage.

  • Surface cleaning:
    Remove dirt, debris, or heavy snow from the roof’s surface and valleys.

The following are some frequently asked questions about our sheet metal roofing in Barrie, Orillia, and Newmarket and the surrounding areas:

Does Lightning Affect a Sheet Metal Roof?

It is a common misconception that a metal roof attracts lightning. This is far from the truth. Sheet metal roofs don't create or attract lightning or pose any other risks related to lightning strikes. 

Will Hail Cause Damage to a Metal Roof?

Metal roofs are highly textured and sturdy. They're incredibly resistant to weather damage and can withstand harsh weather conditions like hail. If an indentation happens due to a heavy storm, it can be easily repaired. 


Are Metal Roofs Fire-Resistant?

Yes! Generally, all sheet metal roofs are resistant to fire. They also deflect the sun's rays, which keeps your property cooler in the summer. This can enhance your energy efficiency and lead to cost savings. 


Are Metal Roofs Noisy When It Rains?

No, they're not. Metal roofs with a roof assembly (decking, insulation, and underlayment) don't produce more noise than other types of roofing when it rains. We will install your roof efficiently and ensure that it doesn't disturb you.
