Why choosing a metal roof?

As a homeowner, you must be well-aware of the importance of a roof. Choosing the most suitable roofing material for your house could be a tedious task. Metal roofing system is a great option but you should have sufficient information about it to have a successful project.

Metal roofing systems are built using a high quality roofing materials which last a lifetime. Metal roof has a modern look and is highly resistant to harsh weather conditions. Metal roofing systems are highly durable, resistant to cracking, eroding, and shrinking. At AMT Roofing, our metal roofing systems come with up to 50-year warranty and 25 year workmanship warranty (residential projects only).

Metal roofing is a smart investment in various ways. For instance, your energy bills will significantly reduce. These roofing systems are energy efficient, so they keep the house cool even during the sweltering months. Metal reflects sunlight, keeping temperatures lower when it’s hot outside.

Generally, metal roofing costs more than conventional asphalt shingles. There are several reasons for that, such as higher cost of material and more complex installation process. However, you will save money in a long term by avoiding upkeep expenses and replacement costs. Metal roofing prices are about 2 to 3 times higher than asphalt shingles, but it is certainly worth your investment in a long run.

Removing an old roofing material adds to the total cost for a new replacement roof. Always see the building code for your area and consult with a specialist, if removal is required, because metal roofing systems often can be installed on top of an old roof.

Hail and fire resistant2022-07-26T00:59:02+00:00

When events that are out of your control hit your home or building, it’s stressful. Luckily, metal roofing is a solution for this stress. A hail storm that would have destroyed your shingle roof won’t even dent up your metal tiles, and fire resistant metal means you’re less likely to lose your home if your neighbour’s house goes up in flames.

Maintenance free2022-07-26T00:58:03+00:00

Maintaining a shingle roof can be exhausting. You don’t want to invest your time in the fix-ups and maintenance, but you have no choice. And if you don’t take the time, you’ll have to spend more money on replacement in a few years. All of these worries are completely removed with a metal roof. You’ll never have to break out the ladder and climb up to your roof again!

Reduces your insurance rates2022-07-26T01:00:42+00:00

Insurance companies base their premiums on risk factors. Metal roofing lowers the risk to your home or building, which in turn lowers your insurance premiums. Always be sure to update your insurance company once the AMT Metal Roofing team has completed your new roof so you can enjoy great savings on your insurance for decades to come.

Environmentally friendly2022-07-26T01:00:28+00:00

Insulates better2022-07-26T01:00:22+00:00

While asphalt shingles draw in and store heat and cold, metal tiles expel heat and cold quickly. This means a more even temperature inside all year round, even in Alberta’s rapidly shifting weather. Of course, better insulation also means more money saved on heating and air conditioning! You’ll feel a big difference in your utility bills each month.

No more mold2022-07-26T01:00:16+00:00

Mold is caused by water, and thanks to a watertight seal in your metal tiles, there won’t be water collecting under your roof. Plus, a ventilated air space between your roof and ceiling mean any moisture can evaporate easily. This means you won’t have to worry about mold breaking down your roof and ruining your home. Breathe easier and safer under a roof that won’t endanger your family or pets, and won’t cause damage.

I contacted several companies about installing a metal roof and getting rid of my shingle roof. I was impressed with how quickly AMT responded and they asked for my information and needs and got a quote prepared very quickly for me. The process to go from quote to roof replacement was also very easy. Tony communicated very clear timeline about how long to order materials and have everything done. The materials arrived quicker than expected and the replacement was scheduled quickly and even better was able to be done while I was away on a weekend trip so nothing about it disrupted my day!! It looks great and the colour is a fantastic match to the colour of my existing garage metal roof. I also love that they take e-transfer payments so the payment process was also super simple. The work was done very neatly, all waste was in the bin and the bin was removed quickly too. Very happy with this company.

I highly recommend AMT. Tony was extremely fast in responding to my initial questions, coming out to do an estimate (and we live out of town) and the work started exactly when he said it would. The roofers were super friendly, hard working, and efficient and they finished the job faster than was originally estimated. The finished product is exactly what we hoped for and they left our property spotless when they left. You will not be disappointed hiring Tony and his team.
