Why Metal Roofing?

Why Switch to Metal Roofing and Cladding?

The benefits of making the move to a long lasting, beautiful, tough and sensible solution to traditional metal roofing and siding materials are obvious!

The Quality of Your Investment!

Metal roofing from Domtek is guaranteed for 40 years.  So forget about having to re-roof for a very long time.

Let’s look at the average statistics…

The average home owner with a typical asphalt roof will replace their roof on average every 10 to 20 years.  Sometimes sooner, depending on the pitch of the roof, shingle colour and climate that the roof is exposed to.

When asphalt roofs are installed on your home or business, they begin to deteriorate and lose value. With Domtek’s wide variety of durable panel profiles, your new roof or wall cladding maintains its value and in most cases helps to improve the value of your property.

With the removal of your old asphalt shingles reaching as high as $100 to $150 per square foot, you will be glad to know that Domtek metal roofing is able to be installed right on top of your existing roof!  Saving you time and money on labour for the removal of old shingles and hauling them to your local landfill.

If you’re worried about the stability of your structure you can rest assured metal roofing is the right choice. Metal roofing is one of the strongest, lightweight materials available on the market. Metal roofing weighs less than half the weight of asphalt shingles and can support greater snow loads, protecting your family and your home in any season.  

Virtually Maintenance Free!

Unlike traditional roofing products, with metal you don’t have to worry about costly repairs after a rain storm, heavy snowfall or hail. Metal roofing and wall cladding has superior debris, water and snow shedding ability compared to traditional materials.

Fire Resistant!

Domtek’s metal roofing is non-combustible. Formed from Hi-Tensile metal, it will not burn –  unlike traditional asphalt shingles, cedar or pine shakes that do! After all, what’s more important than the safety of your family!

Wind Resistant!

Tired of worrying about your roof during a storm? When metal roofing or cladding is properly installed, it’s able to withstand some of the harshest winds our Canadian weather has to offer. It has been seen to withstand winds over 200 km/h!

Energy Efficient!

Be cooler in the summer. Because metal roofing and wall cladding acts as a radiant barrier, it helps to reduce the heat load on your building saving you money on cooling costs.




Save the Environment! Help to Reduce Landfill!

Experts estimate that it can take up to 300 years for asphalt shingles to decompose in a landfill. It’s estimated that over 1 billion pounds of asphalt shingles are dumped into landfills every year! Domtek’s metal roofing and cladding helps to reduce landfills in two ways:

  1. It can be installed over top of your existing roof.
  2. It can be 100% recycled at the end of its life.
