    What is roof pitch?

    The pitch of a roof is generally determined by calculating how much the roof rises vertically over the span of 12 horizontal feet. (For example: a pitch measurement of 2:12 would mean that for every 12 feet horizontally, the height would increase by 2 feet – this would be considered low pitch.) Depending on the pitch of a roof, different roofing materials are recommended.

    CONCERNS WITH LOW SLOPE

    Low slope roof standing seam

    Low pitched roofs are a popular choice for contemporary house design and commercial buildings. However, as mentioned before, low slopes can create potential problems for your Edmonton home if you do not choose the appropriate roofing materials or do not have them installed properly.

    The main concern with low slope roofs is reduced drainage. Water is far more likely to pool on the roof top, which can lead to serious problems, such as roof leaks. In colder climates, like what we experience here in the Edmonton area, the freeze-thaw cycle of pooled water is particularly concerning for flat roofs.

    Temperature changes can cause roofing materials to shrink or expand, creating gaps between material. Water is far more likely to seep between any small crack or gap because of the low slope and when that water freezes it also expands, causing potentially irreparable damage.

    Water infiltration can lead to cosmetic and structural damage of your house, as well as mold and mildew growth, which can have serious health implications for you and your family.

    Testimonials

    After carefully evaluating different options , we selected ATM to install a new metal roof and replaced the older cedar roof. We couldn't be happier with choice. Our new roof looks great in style and our house looks more beautiful. Tony, the manager is very knowledgeable and responsive to answer all of our questions. The installation went smoothly and ahead of the schedule. The entire installation team showed very high level of experience and great professionalism. They were very polite, organized and cleaned up thoroughly each day and after the final project.

    I was tired of dealing with shingles blowing off so I had made my mind up to go with metal. I contacted several roofing companies for estimates to repair my roof after wind damaged my asphalt roofing. We chose AMT because we liked their product and they were cost competitive. Metal roofing is not cheap but it is a long.... term solution. We will never have to re-roof or repair our roof for as long as we live. Tony was very professional and provided a clear estimate and explained the process well. The crew was respectful and cleaned up well after the project. I am very pleased. Thanks Tony and the whole gang. Well done

    Tony Brodeskur was such a great help educating us on our new metal roofing, the quality of AMT installers and the product, prices and warranty. From date of deposit to the date of install was incredibly fast. The AMT installers were extremely efficient, professional, courteous and organized. After completion, the crew cleaned up our yard, just like they were never there except I now have an amazing looking, high quality roof. I would refer AMT to anyone if they need a roof. Thank you Tony and the whole crew for your services.

    Amazing product. Tony was exceptional, taking time to explain the product and to keep in touch. Benjamin and his crew were on time and efficient. This was a huge investment but, well worth it. I never need to worry about my roof again and my small bungalow really stands out in the neighborhood. I would recommend this company and the product to anyone.

    We had a favorable impression of AMT Metal Roofing from the get-go. Tony Brodeskur (ATM) was the first answer our request for a quote and came in with a favorable price. They were swift to come and inspect this sizable job, about 27,000 sq. ft of metal roof replacement, and started with the work immediately. Everything was completed as promised. This company is very professional in every aspect. The crew was working with great pride and did a commendable and complete job considering the many dormers we have on the hotel. They showed respect for our operation and always left the workplace clean. Thank you, Tony, Ben and crew, for a job well done – it was a very pleasant experience – we are happy to recommend AMT Roofing to anyone and for any job, large or small.

    I own a 1950's home with an old style metal roof. It was a challenge to find a company that could/would install snow breakers in the Edmonton area. After getting a couple of quotes, I went with AMT and am thrilled with the service from start to finish. I spoke with Vlad early on a Monday morning, he did a site visit later that morning and then I received an electronic quote later that same day. The job was completed by Wednesday afternoon of that same week. Great work/service in an incredibly short period of time. I highly recommend AMT Roofing.

    AMR wasn't the cheapest company that I got quotes from, but I'm glad I trusted them for this project. Spend the extra money if you have to, you'll thank me.They spent 11 days at my house making it perfect and clearly went above and beyond on several items that were out of scope that they could have billed me for but just did it anyway. I couldn't be more pleased.Tony, the project manager/ estimator was super personable, extremely responsive and put me at ease with every concern I had.

    After getting several quotes for metal roofs I decided to go with AMT. These guys were impressive from the day they provided an estimate till the post-installation final inspection. Very reasonable pricing and superior product quality.

    These guys really deserve the 5 Star rating. The work is top notch, everyone I have dealt with has been extremely professional, and they are very honest with their pricing. Tony the sales guy was great to deal with answered all our questions and even got our eves-troughs done at the same time. I can't remember the name of the foreman that came to do the work but the entire crew was very well run. They cleaned up after themselves so well that if they didn't leaves signs and a new roof you wouldn't have even known they were there.

    THE STANDING SEAM SYSTEM

    The good news is that despite the concerns that come with low slope roofs, there are roofing materials specifically designed to mitigate these issues.

    The Standing Seam metal roofing system offered by AMT Metal Roofing is the perfect solution to the common problems of flat roofs for residential and commercial buildings in Edmonton and surrounding areas.

    The Standing Seam System

    FEATURES

    The Standing Seam system is unique in its architectural profile. Standing seam panels perfectly compliment the modern aesthetic of flat roof homes and commercial buildings.

    The metal panels are available with either self-locking or mechanical-locking seams.

    Self-locking (also known as snap locking) panels are easily joined together without the need for mechanical seaming.

    Seams on mechanically locking panels are usually double folded, thus providing the best protection against water penetration. These panels utilize a hidden clipping system and can be used in different widths to create a unique roofing pattern.

    Self-locking Seam

    Mechanical Seam

    Double Folded Mechanical Seam

    BENEFITS

    BENEFITS Standing seam

    The Standing Seam metal roofing system is known for its superior durability. It is a maintenance free roofing option that is backed by up to 40 year paint warranty and 25 year workmanship warranty. You cannot get that kind of guarantee from other roofing materials, such as asphalt shingles or SBS.

    Another highly attractive quality of standing seam metal panels is that they offer customizable installation options for your Edmonton home or business. They come in a variety of colours, lengths, and widths to fit any roof or design plan, ensuring that your low slope roof is as alluring as it is effective.

    Standing Seam panels do not have any exposed fasteners. This is an extremely beneficial attribute, given that flatter roofs are more susceptible to water accumulation. As mentioned before, the best roofing material for low slope roofs must be waterproof. The standing seam system fits that bill perfectly. The way that the seams are joined and fastened to the roof deck prevents water from getting in it.

    The panels are also designed to withstand a certain amount of expansion and contraction as the hidden clips allow for some movement. This is particularly beneficial during temperature change.

    In a study conducted by the Florida Solar commission, it was discovered that up to 70% of heat is reflected by metal. AMT Metal Roofing’s standing seam metal panels are constructed with the highest quality materials and are also coated with highly reflective paints. The more heat that is deflected, the less likely your home will experience thermal transfer (where heat is absorbed by the roof deck and ultimately transferred to the inside of your home). Findings from the Cool Metal Roofing Coalitions and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory state that this increase heat deflection could mean up to 40% savings on energy bills.

    Installing a standing seam roof on your building undoubtedly adds value to your structure. The increased durability, improved energy efficiency and enhanced curb-appeal increases the resale value of your Edmonton residential or commercial property.

    With a Standing Seam metal roofing system, you can rest assured that your home or business will be fully protected from the top, down.

    The many benefits of standing seam panels effectively mitigate the potential concerns that come with low slope roofs, making it the superior roofing material option. Your home or business is sure to look amazing and be fully protected with a Standing Seam metal roofing system.
