Your roofs should be made of materials that are resilient, sustainable and most of all “adaptive”. These three attributes of roofing are a must in today’s changing climate. Let’s see what these attributes really mean.
Resilience is the capacity overcome unexpected and unforeseen problems and bounce back from the extreme events. And the weather in Toronto and surrounding cities like Ajax is indeed unforeseen and extreme at times!

Frequently Asked Questions About Metal Roofs
Can I customize my metal roof according to my style and that of the neighborhood?
Present-day metal roofing materials are designed to resemble the conventional materials like clay tiles, asphalt shingles etc., but metal roofing provides more strength and durability to your house structure. Moreover, metal roofing comes in variety of styles, patterns, and colors from which you can choose to complement your style and that of the neighborhood.
Can metal roof withstand harsh weather like high-speed winds?
Metal roofs are designed to withstand harsh conditions like heavy snow and hailstones. Metal comes with an uplift resistance rating of 140-mph which means that it can withstand winds travelling at a speed of 140mph or less. This rating is higher than the minimum standard rating required by the building code. Ajax experiences a very high precipitation year-round. In this harsh weather, metal roofs are the safest and wisest choice for every home owner.
How durable is metal roof as compared to conventional asphalt or wood shingles?
The conventional roofing materials experience various problems due to exposure to weather. Asphalt roofs have the life span of 12-20 years depending on the pitch of roof and climate. Asphalt shingles disintegrate when exposed to harsh weather for longer periods of time.
Concrete tiles are also not durable as they warp and crack when exposed to the cycle of freezing and thawing. Wooden roofs have the lifespan of no longer than 20 years. Compared to all these conventional roofing materials, metal roofs last up to 70 years because they do not undergo wear and tear due to climatic conditions.
Is metal roofing noisier in bad weather?
No, in fact metal is no different than other conventional roofing materials in bad weather conditions like raining or hailstorm. If your contractor provides proper insulation in the attic and an underlayment under the roof, it will absorb most of the noise.
Is metal extra-heavy for some structures or sizes of homes?
That is not true at all. Metal weighs 75% less than conventional roofing materials like concrete, fiber cement shake, and slate. It is also 50% lighter than asphalt shingles. You don’t need to worry about weight exerted by metal on the structure of your house.
