The metal roof, what is it?

Metal roofing sets itself apart from other types of competing roofs by the great diversity of designs and its manufacturing materials. It often adorns contemporary buildings and architects. It is suitable for almost all types of roofs except flat roofs.

The materials

The performance of a metal roof is defined by its material of construction, including:

  • Stainless steel: it resists corrosion and rust;
  • Aluminum: it is quick and easy to handle, and it looks good;
  • Tin: it costs more than aluminum and has better corrosion resistance than copper;
  • Zinc: low maintenance;
  • Copper: it stands out for its significant durability.

The different possible configurations

Metal roofing comes in several forms, each with its own specificities:

  • The model imitating the tile: this roof is characterized by its color and its raised or granular finishes, reminiscent of the look of a tile. It is suitable for renovation work;
  • The corrugated roof model: its corrugated shape promotes better ventilation between the roof sections and the frame. It is generally equipped with anti-corrosion technology;
  • Bitumen corrugated sheets: they are rectangular and they are ocher, green, black or red. They are used to optimize the waterproofing of a roof;
  • Sandwich panels for sheet metal roofs: they are available in a wide range of colors, looks and shapes. They are especially suitable for a garage or workshop.

Installation of a metal roof

The installation work of this structure is delicate and requires meticulousness for a successful repair. Toiture Couvreur Laval provides qualified roofers for this type of operation. Contact us to take advantage of our services.

Installation of the roof

This step consists of positioning the metal on the structure and joining the plates together. The objective is to put in place a system to fight against water infiltration. The delicacy of this step requires the intervention of a professional.

Handling of different materials

The choice of materials affects the level of difficulty of installing the roof. Aluminum, for example, is easier to work with, unlike stainless steel. Precautions must be taken depending on the products used, in particular the use of a lacquer to protect the zinc against rust. The ideal is to call in a specialist for work done properly.

Maintenance of a metal roof in Laval

Our turnkey service covers all possible work on the different types of roofs. We take on metal roof maintenance projects mainly as follows:

  • Inspection : the structure should be examined once a year to prevent damage in order to take the necessary measures to avoid repairs
  • Cleaning: This process extends the life of a sheet metal roof. To do this, the structure must be freed from dust before washing with clean water. The application of an anti-mold solution is necessary in the presence of these undesirable.
  • Painting: Applying paint is the final step in maintenance. It has a decorative and protective function.

Inspection may reveal the presence of anomalies that need to be repaired as soon as possible. Our experts can take care of it to extend the life of the cover to avoid a much more expensive replacement.

The advantages of installing a metal roof in Laval

The many advantages of the metal roof make its popularity, namely:

  • Its durability: regular maintenance allows you to extend the life of the structure from 50 to 100 years;
  • Its resistance: the structure shows resistance during bad weather, periods of frost or high heat;
  • Its recyclable state: the recovery device is ecological;
  • Its quality / price ratio: the metal roof is a good investment with its durability, cost and acoustic comfort provided it is combined with good insulation.

The constraints to be taken into account

Some uncomfortable situations associated with this type of roof should be emphasized, including:

  • Risks of noise pollution: the roof easily creates noise in the event of hail, rain or ice. The use of soundproofing insulation is necessary to overcome this concern;
  • Regular maintenance: Metal is a material susceptible to deformation, hence the need to inspect and maintain it at least once a year.

Metal roofing in Laval: a good or a bad investment?

Metal roofing is a financially attractive alternative, especially compared to a shingle roof. In addition, it offers more satisfactory durability.

Opting for the metal structure saves you regular replacement work. You have more peace of mind when you invest in this blanket, for a long time. In addition, its durability is an important selling point.

Who are metal roofs for?

The metal structure is compatible with all buildings, industrial or residential. However, it is important to know that it specifically targets two categories of owners, namely:

  • Those who advocate the aesthetic side: they opt for a roof that allows them to build a building in their image;
  • Those looking for sustainability: they opt for a long-term investment.

Just after the big storm that took place a month ago, we went online and filled the specific form that we have found on this company’s website. This was on a Saturday afternoon. The next day the manager called us and visited our house to evaluate the situation with the roof. The roof suffered grave damages, a condition that couldn’t go unfixed for many days since everyone feared the next heavy rain. The manager provided us with a reasonable quote and the next day they started working on our roof with professionalism and extra care.

The reason we called your company was because we desired a makeover of our house and our roof. We also wanted to improve the insulation in our house. Your company suggested installing a glass wool mat and a HPV underlay system, a system that was installed in addition to the structure that was already there. Two years have passed since then and the insulation works greatly keeping our house warmer and cooler. If you want to make a long-term investment or you simply face issues with your roof, do not hesitate to contact them.

We couldn’t be happier with the work performed in our roof last June. The interior and exterior of the roof along with the finishing touches are perfect and very qualitative. Also, the insulation installed gives to our house a sense of warmth and comfort that we did not have before. Overall, we are very grateful for everything this roofing company did on our roof and for its polite, experienced and professional crew. We will recommend it to anyone we know.

I received a quote from this specific company regarding a replacement on a roof. This concerned a property in the suburbs that I wanted to rent. The company completed a precise investigation and estimate within the next 2 business days. Every part of the team worked very professionally and helpfully throughout the entire process. The team manager offered me many solutions and advice and I chose the one that best fitted my budget and my needs. The result from then on is exquisite and of the utmost quality.

We recently bought a new house and we couldn’t be more happy and anxious to start enjoying it. But we had an issue: the roofing was outdated and needed to be renovated in its entirety. This specific company came highly recommended and this was the reason behind choosing it to assist us with replacing and fixing our roofing. Not only did they assist us but they offered to place a specific insulation system allowing us to spend 50% less in our yearly electricity and heating bills. Definitely a must!

I am a man of the same profession (a bricklayer) and trust me when I say that I have never seen such a professional and hard-working roofing company. The reason I hired them was to apply a waterproofing insulation in my terrace. The end-result is very well and after severe and heavy rains, not a single issue occurred. The tightness is excellent and everything works and fits perfectly. I will definitely count on this company again in the future if I ever need any work done on my roof.

Great professionals. Ratio quality-price that no one else can beat. We completely recommend them and we are so happy that our terrace roof got fixed. In addition to that, they provided waterproofing and flooring services in our attic. They employed a 10 people team in our house, everyone a serious and professional individual. The result is of the utmost quality and very clean. Work started when agreed upon and finished the same. The finishing touches are great and we are very happy. If we ever need any other repairs, we will definitely use them again without hesitation.
