Metal roofing

This is more than triple the amount of time that you could expect from even the most solidly built asphalt roof. Metal roofs are very strong – they can hold their own against wind gusts that are as fast as 200 kms per hour.

  • Depending on the specific material used, 25%-95% of it is made out of recycled content, and at the end of the roof’s lifespan, it can be completely recycled.

Rubber Roofing

  • The rubber is designed to withstand challenging weather while preventing superficial signs of aging such as rotting, peeling or cracking. The special rubber used in the roofing process naturally blocks UV inhibitor and therefore, stops any sun-related damage from decreasing the quality or life of the roof.

  • Compared to other roofing materials, rubber roofing offers superior impact resistance and is a solid choice for homeowners looking protect their homes from storm-like weather or hail.
