Steel: The Durable and Eco-Friendly Choice
All of the steel roofing, siding and backyard products manufactured and distributed by Vicwest are designed to give home and cottage owners more durable and more eco-friendly options than traditional materials.
- Life Expectancy:
- Steel roofs last longer than non-metallic roofs,with a lifespan of up to 50 years or even more!
- Fire and Weather Resistant:
- Because steel is a non-combustible material, it cannot catch on fire. Steel roofing holds up better than any other roofing material under conditions of heavy rain, hail, extreme temperatures, high winds and even earthquakes.
- Style Variety:
- Steel roofing is available in a wide range of styles. It can mimic other types of materials such as wood shingle, clay tile and asphalt shingle—but with all the durable qualities that steel offers. With new technologies in painted surfaces, metal roofing also offers a wide array of colors to choose from.
- Cost Effective:
- Steel roofing can be quite cost effective compared to expensive clay tiles, slate, or wood shake shingles. A reduction in heating and cooling costs is another benefit—especially cooling costs since many of Vicwest's steel roofing profiles use solar reflective pigments within their coating.
- Steel roofs ease the stress on a home’s structure since it is much lighter than materials such as tile. Heavier roof materials may require a home to undergo structural repairs which can result in thousands of additional costs.
- Low to No Maintenance:
- Coupled with its weather-resistant qualities, steel roofs resist the growth of mold and mildew.
