What are the advantages of choosing metal roofing in Winnipeg?
Metal roofing stands up well to harsh climate conditions, reflects heat during the summer, and sheds snow easily during the winter months. Darker colours quickly absorb heat, making snow melt a quick and straightforward process.
Can metal roofing be installed over existing roofing materials?
In certain situations, yes. Though removing the existing roof provides a cleaner starting point, there can also be some advantages to applying metal roofing over a single layer of flat, rot-free asphalt shingles.
Are there any specific building codes or regulations to consider when installing metal roofing in Winnipeg?
Not usually, but it’s always important to consider permits and building codes when planning a new construction project within the City of Winnipeg.
What maintenance is required for metal roofing?
Compared to many other types of roofing, the maintenance required for metal roofing is fairly minimal. Maintaining clean gutters, trimming encroaching tree branches, and keeping the roof clear of debris are all important.
