If you are in the process of building a new cottage / estate home in Canada, or renovating an existing rural property, you know that durability and weather resistance is top of mind. But, that doesn’t mean sacrificing style and exterior design for superior protection. You can have both with a metal roof manufactured by Vicwest!

  • Lifetime limited warranty
  • Non pro-rated warranty gives you peace of mind
  • 2 ½” hailstone warranty – Class 4 impact resistance to UL 2218
  • 120 mph wind warranty
  • Interlocking design prevents leaks and adds durability
  • Triple coat finish for superior protection

As a cottage owner, you know the importance to protect your investment and create a home that fits and shows off your property within a rural landscape. Metal roofing has been used in northern locations subjected to extreme cold, heavy snowfall, and intense summer sun, for generations. In addition, metal roofing is an eco-friendly product, made with recycled steel and is 100% recyclable at the end of its service life. A metal roof fits your cottage style and environmental green building values!

Why Metal is worth the investment

Ordinary roofing materials have shorter life spans and will need to be replaced regularly, especially in areas that see an influx of hot and cold temperatures coupled with high weather activity. With constantly increasing material and labour costs, this could result in significant expense over the life of your home. A roof purchase isn’t something you plan on, so why do it twice? With warranties up to 50 years, a Vicwest metal roof will save you money and future financial worry since you’ll never have to re-roof again! In addition, the enhanced curb appeal and durability it provides can help increase resale value should you decide to sell your home.
