Metal roof meet highest performance ratings available for fire protection, resistance to wind uplift, and hail damage. Metal roofing products are environmentally friendly—due to their recyclability, and solar reflectiveness which result in lower cooling requirements. Metal roofs do not mildew, split, crack, or curl. Metal is virtually maintenance free and can last 50 - 75 years or more. There are also a wide range of material choices—copper, galvanized or coated steel, stainless steel, aluminum and other coated metals—and several different panel construction options—standing seam, decorative stampings, 5V, and others.
Metal roofing systems are durable and lightweight for both new and reroof applications.
Properly installed metal roofing is no noisier than any other type of roof. Metal roofing is typically installed over a solid substrate. Additionally, the attic and insulation provide a sound barrier. If you wish to install residential metal roofing over your existing roof, the metal roof will most likely be raised over the existing roof by means of furring strips. These furring strips will create an air pocket which will further deaden sound.
Millions of barrels of crude oil are used in the production asphalt shingles, which inevitably fail. Annually, over 30 billion pounds of asphalt shingles are disposed of in landfills. The steel used to make metal roofing products and accessories is composed of as much as 50% recycled material, and is itself 100% recyclable. In fact, metal is the most highly recycled material; 64% of all scrap metal in North America is recycled annually. In many cases, metal roofing Canada can be installed over existing roofing, saving costly tear off and disposal charges.
Metal roofing Ontario costs about three times the cost of conventional asphalt roofs. The difference in metal roofing cost is attributed to a much higher price of metal roofing materials sold by metal roofing manufacturers, and a highly technically involved installation process that requires specialized skills, and specific training. The tedious and time-consuming installation process requires longer hours, precision and patience affecting cost of metal roof. On average, metal roof takes about two to three times longer to install than a conventional roof.
Metal roof can last a lifetime with little to no roof maintenance, while providing tremendous cooling cost savings, offering a distinct look to your home, and increasing its value.
After decades of reliable service, metal roofs Canada may bring savings that add up to a double and even three times the amount you would spend with asphalt shingle roof, thus justifying metal roof cost.
Standing seam metal roof cost differs from shingle metal roof cost.
Metal shingle roof is the basic type of residential metal roofing material. Metal roofing shingles usually feature a four way inter-locking design, which means that every single shingle is interlocked with six other shingles on all four sides. The advantage of the inter-locking metal roof shingles design is that it makes the whole system extremely reliable, because every shingle is being held in place by six other shingles.
Pro Roofing also offers metal roofing panels installation and standing seam metal roofing (one big piece of metal roofing sheet).
Installing metal roof is a very dangerous profession, and safety is our number one priority. When we install metal roofing we always use full body harnesses and fall protection systems consisting of roof anchors, 50 inch lifeline, and shock-absorbing lanyard.

Under normal conditions, steel roofing panels resist chipping, cracking, peeling and perforating.Steel roofing systems carry a 50 years manufacturer's warranty against steel roofing materials defects and corrosion. A properly installed steel shingle roof may well be the last roof you ever have to install on your home.
Steel roof innovations have virtually eliminated rust and corrosion worries. Their toughness meets the strictest codes for wind, fire, and impact. Galvanized steel roofing is also one of the most energy efficient roofing systems available, even meeting recyclability criteria.
Because steel metal roofing is available in a wide array of designs, finishes, and colors, it is ideal for the most discriminating homeowner. Pro Roofing provides contemporary, traditional, or old-fashioned steel roofing styles.
Roof steel is green material. Environmentally friendly and sustainable, green roofing materials offer energy efficiency, recyclability, and extremely low maintenance requirements.
Steel tile roofing can save you money. Because steel is the most maintenance-free roofing material on the market, it saves money on upkeep and maintenance. Considering re-roof expenditures, energy maintenance, insurance, resale, and taxes, steel roofing is an investment with a very fast payback.
Steel roofing sheets reflect a high percentage of the sun's energy back into the atmosphere, lowering attic temperatures and subsequent cooling loads which make your roof more energy efficient. Painting residential steel roofing with high reflectance paint systems can save you up to 40% on cooling costs when compared to typical asphalt shingles.
Residential steel roofs are available in two main profiles; shingles and standing-seam. Shingle steel roofing installation profiles resemble conventional asphalt shingles roofs, cedar shake tiles, and even a natural slate. Steel shingles are available in a variety of cool-roof rated colors and styles. Steel shingles feature a four way interlocking shingle design, which provides unsurpassed roofing system reliability. Such a roof can withstand hurricane winds up to 110 miles per hour. Coated with combination of zinc and aluminum alloy, steel roofing shingles are well protected against oxidation and rust. Painted with a high quality paint finish, steel shingle reflects solar radiant heat and keeps your building cool, which helps reduce cooling costs.

Aluminum roof is a priceless investment in your home. Lightweight, corrosion resistant, wind resistant and long lasting - there are few materials that can match the quality and durability of aluminum roofs.
Aluminum metal roofing offer a lifetime alternative to materials such as asphalt shingles. Aluminum is extremely resistant material and can withstand the harshest conditions. It is not coincidence it is used for making airplanes - strong enough to take the abuse aircrafts are exposed during service. For instance: extreme cold on high altitudes, ice, water, wind and snow. It is a metal that allows us to fly safely from continent to continent, and you can be assured it is the material that will last your roof a lifetime.
Aluminum will also help eliminate unnecessary expenditures in roof maintenance and frequent roof repairs associated with asphalt roofs.
The main advantage of aluminum roofing panels over steel is that they can be used in coastal areas with high concentration of salt in the environment, which can make galvanized steel susceptible to corrosion over time.
Shingles use an interlocking design that has proven durable through decades of hot summers and cold, snowy winters. Shingles interlock into each other on all four sides until the entire area is roofed.
Aluminum shingles weight around 40 - 50 lbs per 100 square feet. Conventional asphalt shingles weight 5 to 10 more than aluminum ones.
Being fully supported by the roof's sheathing, they can be freely walked on. There's also little noise when it rains since shingles lie on tarpaper, and plywood.
Aluminum roof installed by professionally trained installers, and backed by a true lifetime warranty, offers beauty, protection and a piece of mind. Get in touch with Pro Roofing today to get aluminum roofing cost estimate. We offer aluminum roofing Ontario and aluminum roofing Toronto (GTA).
Often, a copper roof will outlast the structure it covers.
Copper is a pure, natural material with the added attraction of unique changing visual characteristics. Offering and effectively indefinite design life, it is extremely durable and resistant to corrosion in any atmosphere, requiring no decoration, cleaning and virtually no main enhance other than the removal of debris that may fall into the gutters. Copper is environmentally friendly, fully recyclable, safe to use and can be worked in all temperatures. Tried and tested, copper is the most trouble-free material for roofing.
Hildesheim Cathedral roof was installed in 1280 and is intact to this day (over 800 years old!).
The Romans used copper as a roof material for the Pantheon in 27 BC and many of the great churches of medieval Europe were roofed with copper.
Copper Patina (Naturally Developing Protective Covering)
When Copper is exposed to the weather elements, it protects itself by developing a Patina (also called verdigris) over time which reforms if damaged, ensuring durability and resistance to corrosion in virtually any atmosphere. It's the same look that the statue of liberty is sporting, because… you guessed it, the statue is made of copper.
There are basically three ways of getting copper onto your roof -- as a pre-measured continuous covering - a "standing seam copper roof" or a copper roof formed from smaller copper panels, and as copper shingles.
Copper roofing sheet is sold by weight, with the thickness measured in ounces (oz) per square foot; 16 oz cooper sheet is typically used for residential roofing applications, while 20 oz copper sheet is used for commercial applications. Copper sheet for other purposes may be sold by gauge, where the higher the gauge the thinner the material.

Modern day corrugated metal roofing systems offer corrosion resistance, energy efficiency and provide economical roof solution for commercial, agricultural, industrial, and sometimes residential use. Corrugated roofing panels are usually made from thin gauge steel, usually a 24, or 26 gauge steel, which makes it economical and practical, when it comes to covering large areas of roofing surfaces. Corrugated metal roofs are more practical and longer lasting than asphalt shingle roofs, and they cost much less than standing seam metal roofing.
Corrugated roof panels can be made from aluminum, galvanized steel (G-60, or G-90 steel), galvalume coated steel, and stainless steel. When going for a long lasting economical solution, galvalume steel provides an optimal combination of cost effectiveness and material longevity and reliability. When coated with a Kynar coating, corrugated metal roof can provide significant energy savings.
Over the years corrugated steel roofing systems have benefited from many aesthetic and roof integrity system specific improvements, which now make it a considerable alternative to conventional asphalt shingle roofs that go into landfills after 15 years of service. Although metal roofing is more expensive than asphalt shingle, corrugated roof is quite affordable compared to standing seam.
The corrugations are what make individual corrugated roofing sheets surprisingly strong. They are created using a process known as roll-forming. When this procedure is complete, the bending strength of corrugated metal roofing panels is much greater that they would be if the sheets remained flat. The increase in bending strength occurs in the direction of the corrugations, not across them.
There are various different corrugations that can be applied to roofing sheets that will serve different purposes. Metal sheets usually have corrugations that are curved, giving the roof a wavy appearance. Parts of each sheet will overlap the ones next to them, with the corrugations fitting into each other neatly. Another commonly seen pattern in corrugated sheet metal roofing is the squared shape. This can be particularly useful in roof decking installations as the shape provides great support for the deck. The best roofing sheet choice for your individual property will really depend on its size, location and usage. Corrugated metal roofing sheets are a great choice for many buildings with their exceptional strength and low maintenance costs.

Tin roofing has many benefits that it can bring to a home or business. While it shares the same advantages of strength, light weight, and durability with other kinds of metal roofing material, tin has the distinction of being distinctly less expensive than other varieties (copper, aluminum, zinc).
Tin roofs are not 100% tin. Tin roofs are mostly comprised of steel, but have a tin coat to protect steel from corrosion. The tin is chemically bonded to the steel in a plating process where the steel is heated and saturated with molten tin. The steel and tin molecules that are rapidly vibrating because of the heat interlock and bond permanently to one another.
There are two kinds of tin-roof coverings in common use, flat seam and standing seam.
Tin roofing can be installed on almost all architectural structure, no matter how flimsy the underlying construction materials seem to be.
Before installing a tin roof, the uneven edges of the boarding should be smoothed off and the boarding covered with at least one thickness of sheathing paper or dry felt, to form a cushion and otherwise protect the tin. Knot holes in the boarding should be covered with pieces of heavy galvanized iron. Only the best quality of tin should be used, and it should be painted on the under side before it is laid.
The outer edges of the tin should be turned over the upper edge of the cornice, and clasped to a strip of hoop iron; or, where it connects with a metal gutter, the two should be locked and soldered. Where a tin roof abuts a chimney or wall, the tin should be turned up sufficiently to prevent water from rising over it. This upstand should be counter-flashed with sheet lead; and abutting a wooden wall it should be turned up against the boarding, and the siding or shingles laid over it. The tin should also be turned up against all balcony posts, and the edges at the angles well soldered.
The roof should be painted within a few days after it is laid, either with red lead in linseed oil, or a good asphaltum paint, particular care being taken to scrape off all resin before the paint is applied.

Lead sheet, one of the oldest and most durable roofing materials, has been known to last for over two hundred years, with an enviable record of performance and longevity. It has been in use as a building material throughout Europe since Roman times, and it outperforms all alternative man-made materials in its field.
Lead Roofs are chosen not only for their beautiful finished look but for the knowledge that you will never have to worry about a leaking roof again. Lead roofs last in excess of 100 years.
Lead is a green roofing material. More than 95% of lead used in the manufacture of lead sheet comes from recycling. The relatively low melting point of lead, 327°C, means the recycling process has a minimal environmental impact.

Was referred to Pro Roofing through a friend of mine who had a metal roof installed by them. Above all, the work of the company speaks for itself. The foreman is very thorough and the follow up is excellent. Before beginning the project we got other estimates, but the pricing was higher than this company. The job itself was re roofing and skylight installation, which they did on time, despite our aggressive time schedule and challenges with access to the roof. Installation was very professional, and clean up left the property in better state than it was. I highly recommend Pro Roofing, you will be well taken care of.
