Why Choosing a Standing Seam 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. Standing seam metal roofing is a great option but you should have sufficient information about it to have a successful project.

Standing seam metal roofing system is a top-quality roofing material which lasts a lifetime. It has a sleek modern look and is highly resistant to harsh weather conditions. This metal roofing system is highly durable, resistant to cracking, eroding, and shrinking. Standing seam roofing comes with a 40-year manufacturer paint warranty and 25 year workmanship warranty.

Metal roofing is a smart investment. For instance, your energy bills will be lower, as these roofing systems are energy efficient and will keep your house cooler in summer months due to metal being more reflective than asphalt shingles and superior ridge ventilation used.

Generally, standing seam 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. Standing seam metal roofing prices are about 2 to 3 times higher than asphalt shingles, but it is certainly worth your investment in a long run.

AMT Metal Roofing Reviews

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 more

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 more

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 more

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 more

Living in Yellowknife there aren’t any local options to find suppliers for metal roofs. AMT Roofing was recommended to us as a company that would provide a quality product for a competitive price. Easy and approachable customer service. Very happy overall.

We recently had a new roof installed on our house and garage, and from start to finish, the experience was exceptional. Vlad, the sales and company rep., did a great job explaining the product and showing us a sample of what the roof would look like. The crew, led by Jason, was a group of hard workers who did a great professional job and cleaned up the worksite each day before leaving. From start to finish, we were very satisfied and pleased with the work ethic and attention to detail of the roofing crew. Of the four quotes we got, AMT had the best price, and in my view, has the best product. I highly recommend AMT Roofing for anyone interested in a long-last, great-looking metal-tile roof!

Had my roof converted from shingles to metal. Vlad the project manager showed up had samples of colours and walked me through the procedure. Gave me a couple of options for the install. I went with the complete removal of old roof. Which cost a little bit more. He estimated 6 days to complete. The installers were very nice. They worked all day and hardly took breaks and got the job done in 5 more

I'm very happy with the job guys from Alberta Metal Tile Roofing did for me. My new roof looks amazing and overall process was very pleasant. Even though this project was pricey compared to asphalt shingles it is definitely worth it in the long run.

It has been 4 years since we did our metal roof, very happy that we changed from shingles. Summers feel cooler in the house and no more ice damping in the winters. Most important for me is that our house looks much nicer with the European look metal roof. Thank you again for the great job!

AMT impressed me right away from the moment I made the first call and spoke with their office and then with professionalism and knowledge of their sales representative. Their installers did an excellent job installing metal tiles and were always friendly and informative to me during that time as I like to ask questions and oversee the process. Furthermore, since I'm new to metal roofing, I decided to hire an independent inspector to double check that everything was done right, and he found no issues on my new roof, so now I can confidently refer this company to my friends and family and be 100% sure that I've picked the right guys for the job! Thank you AMT Roofing for my new roof)read more

Great company to work with! I decided that I no longer want to waste my money on asphalt shingles and ready to invest in my house. Got several estimates for metal roofs and was really impressed by a rep and product offered by AMT Roofing! So I chose to go with these guys and from then on the entire process has been extremely smooth. Now I’m a proud owner of a house with the most beautiful roof in the neighbourhood!read more

    Roofing material & Roof Area

    Generally, the bigger your roof, the more is the cost. The estimated cost per square foot depends on a roofing material, as well as other factors listed above.

    Standing seam metal roofing costs between $8.00 and $11.00 per square foot installed. If an average residential roof size is somewhere between 2,000 to 3,000 sq.ft, then it will cost between $16,000.00 to $33,000.00 to replace those roofs.

    Factors which determine standing seam metal roofing price are a number of roof planes, skylights, dormers, chimneys, valleys, as well as roof pitch (slope).

    If a roof is walkable, it will be cheaper to install metal on it. Steeper roof needs special equipment and takes longer time to install; hence price rises. It also takes longer to work around chimneys, valleys, windows, skylights compared to plain roof.

    Apart from buying a metal roofing system, you also have to decide whether removal of an old roofing materials is required or not. 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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
