Metal roofing is another affordable and quality roofing solution. This material will last for over 50 years, and is equally suitable for agricultural and residential buildings. A simple coat of paint can revitalize your roof, and it is easy to maintain even after several years. As snow and ice tend to accumulate less on metal roofs, it is advisable to install a safety device to prevent ice or snow falling on people below.
Metal is a completely recyclable material. The metal sheets can be modified for another use, even several years after production. Due to its greater strength, a metal roof will give you peace of mind for at least 50 years. This means less work to be done and less materials.

Elastomeric membrane has garnered a large following among roofers and building owners since it first appeared on the market. More than half of flat roofs, low slope roofs and roof terraces in Canada contain elastomeric membranes. Made of a modified bitumen compound, this type of roofing is divided into two parts: a base layer and a second layer composed of coloured granules giving it a finished look.
The elastomeric membrane has many advantageous properties. The material is durable and can withstand the harsh climate of our country for a period of 20 to 30 years. The two layers of the elastomeric membrane provide superior impermeability. Finally, maintenance activities require little work and are required only once a year.
If you want a completely natural roofing solution, opt for cedar shingles. This type of shingle is a versatile material suitable for various kinds of architectures, and adds a modern, aesthetic touch. In addition to offering an exceptional quality roof, this roofing material does not require any treatment.
Cedar shingles have a lifespan of about 50 years and do not deteriorate over time. They offer increased insulation from both weather and noise. Finally, they give off a pleasant, natural fragrance that comes from the wood.
Once the installation work is completed, a cedar shingle roof can remain untouched. Over the years, cedar shingles naturally turn a grayish tint. This appearance is popular among owners fond of more sophisticated styles. The colour can also be changed with dye or paint, according to the owners’ taste. This natural material with its easily changeable appearance is very popular.
