Metal Roofing experts
Metal roofing has become increasingly popular across Canada in recent years thanks to its superior durability, design flexibility, safety rating, and insulating power. If you are thinking about a metal or aluminum roof for your home, we would be happy to help you!
ABOUT METAL ROOFING
Sheet metal roofing is no doubt the strongest, longest-lasting, and safest material you can have on your roof. With maximum protection and a lifespan of up to 50 years, installing a metal roof often means never having to repair or maintain your roof again.
There are two most popular and at the same time traditional types of steel roofs: metal tile and standing seam profiles. Metal tile is easily installed to the lumber right onto an existing shingles roof, though regardless of which one you decide on, it will improve the look of the house and increase the property’s insulating capability.
A light-colored metal roof reflects the sun, preventing the house from overheating. This means your house will be cooler in summer while no warmth will escape through the roof in winter. Not only will this keep you more comfortable all year round, but will help you save on all of your heating and cooling bills.At Del’s Exteriors, we have the training and expertise to properly design and install your roof right the first time.

Benefits Of having a Tin or Steel Metal Roof
Metal roofing is one of the strongest and most durable types of roofing on the market. It offers maximum protection against even the most extreme weather conditions and comes with one of the highest fire safety ratings possible.
Metal roofing is both waterproof and windproof withstanding gusts of wind up to 140 miles per hour
One of the most attractive features of metal roofing is its ability to mimic other roofing materials. Coming in a huge variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, metal roofing offers a sleek, modern, and distinctive look. With plenty of designs to choose from, our experts will help you choose the perfect material and style to suit your preferences.
Steel and tin roofing materials contain substantially higher amounts of recycled materials than asphalt shingles and are 100% recyclable at the end of their lifespan. Plus, a metal roof can often be installed over your existing roof, resulting in fewer materials added to our landfills.
Metal roofing also provides an ideal platform for homeowners who want to embark on other eco-conscious initiatives, including solar panels and systems for harvesting rainwater.
If you live in a wooded area, where raccoons and rodents can get onto your roof from the trees, you can rest assured that they won’t be able to damage a metal roof to break into your attic.
Metal roofing can often last 40-50 years making it one of the longest-lasting roofing materials available, nearly double the lifespan of most other roofing materials.
Home heating costs continue to rise drastically. In winter, a metal roof will provide better insulation to save you money on your heating and cooling costs. In summer, a metal roof better reflects solar radiant heat to keep your home cooler.
Metal roofing is completely fireproof and will not start or spread a fire. This is why many insurance companies offer rebates and discounts for homes that install metal roofing.
Metal roofing requires almost no maintenance, repairs, or replacement of parts. All that’s required is a simple hosing down now and then.
