Time has been passing and you need to redo the roof of your house. “Already?!”, you say?
It’s time to install a durable roof, one made of metal (also called an aluminum shingle roof)!
Choose the best metal roof installer and the best metal shingle
Here are a few things to check out before you do business with a supplier and installer of permanent aluminum roofs.
Warranties on metal roofs
The main reason that homeowners turn to metal roofing is very simple: they never want to have to think about their roof for the rest of their life! It’s therefore important to verify the precise conditions of the warranty offered by the manufacturer and installer of your future metal shingle roof.
First, there’s the warranty on the material itself. Check whether it’s really a lifetime warranty and whether it’s transferrable. You will find that normally metal roofs carry a limited lifetime warranty that can be transferred. At Toits Permanents du Québec, we even cover the future owner for up to a total of 50 years!
Secondly, there’s the warranty on installation. Toits Permanents du Québec offers you, at no extra cost, a 10-year warranty on labour.
And finally, you need to carefully read the scope of the warranty. With us that isn’t complicated. Your high-quality Interlock® aluminum roof is 100% guaranteed against extreme weather, wind, cracks, rust, fire and rot.
What makes aluminum shingles better than other types of roofing?
The market includes a multitude of materials with which to replace your residential roofing. But stone-coated steel, concrete tiles, composite asphalt shingles and cedar honestly can’t hold a candle to an aluminum roof.
The disadvantage of steel is that it rusts and fades. Concrete tiles aren’t very rot-resistant and often end up cracking or warping. Cedar looks lovely, but it doesn’t withstand high winds and hail very well and it often warps or cracks as well.
Asphalt shingles are the most popular roofing materials because of their low price, but they don’t resist moss, cracks, warping, hail or high winds. That’s why they often need to be repaired or replaced to keep water out.
At Toits Permanents du Québec, we only use high-quality Interlock® aluminum shingles. They’re the most durable, they don’t need any maintenance and they stand up to bad weather and the passage of time.
