Metal roofing has been around for more than a century. Used originally for commercial, industrial and agricultural buildings, today’s metal roofing also comes in steel shingles in a variety of attractive contemporary colours.
A metal roof last at least 4 to 5 times longer. It may even be the last roof you install on your house for as long as you live!
So if they last at least 4 to 5 times longer, THEN THEY ARE LESS EXPENSIVE. It is a fact that a metal roof do cost more at the outset than regular asphalt shingles… about 50 percent more or less depending on the model you choose, the location of your construction or renovation project, your roofing contractor or installer and the complexity of your roof. In the long term, it’s another story!
Lifetime protection is the reason for the higher cost!
Consider a metal roof a lifetime investment that will reward you with a higher resale value when the time comes to sell your house. And you will save money in the long run. In addition, because they are so lightweight, Ideal Roofing’s metal roofing products can be installed over your existing asphalt shingles, saving you the expense of removing the old shingles, disposing of them and carting them off to a landfill site.
Ideal Roofing’s metal roofing products come with a transferable warranty of up to 50 years.
Because, when you are ready to move on, you want your house to retain its best resale value.

How much do steel or metal roof shingles weigh?
Did you know that common asphalt shingles, cedar shakes and slate roofing weigh 60% more than Wakefield Bridge Steel Shingles? It’s true and while it might not seem like a big deal, consider this. The average shingle job on a 1650 sq ft roof requires 3000lbs in shingles alone. Combined with a solid layer of snow during the winter and your roof could be carrying up to 10,000lbs! That’s a lot of stress on the frame and foundation of your home. These steel shingles help reduce that weight while maintaining it’s structural integrity all while looking fantastic and lasting longer.
On top of that, Wakefield Bridge metal roofs are more resistant to heat and cold meaning they will not curl, rot, crack, break, chip, peel or perforate under normal use. These super shingles even carry weather ratings for rain, ice, frost, hail, wind and fire!
