Superior Steel Roofing Systems is the superior choice for your roof.  There are many factors which make Superior Steel Roofing Systems better than the competition.  View the images below to see each step of the installation process and then scroll down the page to see why Superior Steel Roofing Systems is the best choice for your roofing project.

Why we are better:

  • Our roofing consultants have been in the industry for many years and have a wealth
    of roofing experience.
  • Our roofing consultants are trained to provide current information regarding the
    latest products on the market.
  • Our roofing consultants have been roof installers. They know roofing!
  • Our roofing consultants are easy to talk to & do not use high pressure sales tactics.
  • Our roofing consultants will give you a free, no obligation quote.
  • Our roofing consultants will meet with you at your convenience.
  • Our roofing consultants will provide product samples.
  • Our roofing consultants will help you make an informed decision.

Why we are better:

  • Our shakes are manufactured using forming dies that meet the highest quality standards. This means the shakes installed on your roof will not have the nicks and blemishes that our competitor’s shakes have. Our dies ensure that our shakes are identical and meet our
    demanding specifications now and in the future.
  • Our trim, mouldings, flashings and accessories are custom fabricated with computerized folding machines. Thus results in a clean, high quality appearance once the trim, mouldings, flashings and accessories are installed.
  • All manufacturing is done at our Guelph facility. We employee your neighbours.
  • Our manufacturing team ships your roof components to you with care. Your roof components arrive at the site undamaged.
  • Our research team is constantly improving our product.

Why we are better:

  • Our installers are Superior Steel Roofing Systems employees who are paid by the hour. This ensures that our installers will take the correct amount of time to properly install your roof.
  • Our installers are trained in the best and most up to date safety practices.
  • Our installation sites are equipped with all required safety barriers and signage.
  • Our installation crews are WSIB compliant.
  • Superior Steel Roofing Systems is committed to safety. Our goal is to perform a safe installation as well as a high quality installation. Superior wants our installers to return - each night
    to their families – uninjured!

Why we are better:

  • Our cross strapping system installs directly over most roofs. This eliminates the need for a messy, wasteful and expensive tear off of the old shingle roof and reduces the amount of material which is sent to our overburdened landfill sites. As well, the old roofing material now becomes a layer of insulation and a sound barrier.
  • The cross strapping system creates an air space between the new and existing roof. The result is your home will stay cooler in the summer.
  • When we cross strap - we use our custom made levelling wedges and so - we are able to level the most uneven roofs.
  • Cross strapping also eliminates much of the noise associated with steel roofing.

Why we are better:

  • Our leveling wedges are custom fabricated at our Guelph production facility. As a result, we have the quality materials to do a quality job.
  • Our precise leveling procedure results in a high quality surface for our shakes to be installed on. The result: a beautiful steel roof.

Why we are better:

  • Our trim, mouldings, flashings and accessories are custom fabricated with computerized folding machines. This results in a clean, high quality appearance once the trim, mouldings, flashings and accessories are installed.
  • Our screws are colour matched to your trim colour.
  • Our installers are trained in the best and most up to date installation techniques.

Why we are better:

  • Our shakes are manufactured using forming dies that meet the highest quality standards. This means the shakes installed on your roof will not have the nicks and blemishes that our competitor’s shakes have. Our dies ensure that our shakes are identical and meet our demanding specifications now and in the future.
  • The design of our shakes is superior to the design of our competitor’s shakes. Our design incorporates more folds and more material. More folds mean that our shakes are more rigid and subject to less distortion than our competitor’s product. More material means that our shakes have more overlap than our competitor’s shakes. More overlap results in a steel roof that resists water infiltration. More material used also results in higher costs to install a steel roof. At Superior Steel Roofing Systems we think the higher cost is worth the benefit: our customers have the
    best roof in the industry!
  • Our screws are colour matched to your shakes.
  • Our installers are trained in the best and most up to date installation techniques.

Why we are better:

  • One of the goals of Superior Steel Roofing Systems is to continuously improve our product. As a result of our efforts, our company has developed a better snow guard. Our snow guard is a clear UV stable polycarbonate snow guard.
  • Our clear snow guards do their job in a subtle manner without impacting negatively on the
    aesthetics of your steel roof.
  • Some of our competitors use big, ugly, visually obtrusive snow guards.

Why we are better:

  • This inspection is another reason why Superior Steel Roofing Systems does the best installations.

Why we are better:

  • Our installation team cleans up the site on a daily basis. Just another part of a quality installation.
  • Our installation team uses tarps to prevent unnecessary mess.
  • Our installation team uses magnetic brooms so a thorough clean up is performed.

Why we are better:

  • This step ensures that you are completely satisfied with your new Superior Steel Roofing Systems roof.
  • This step gives you an opportunity to ask questions about your new steel roof. As a result, you will be an informed and educated customer as well as a satisfied customer.

Superior Steel Roofing Systems :: Products

Because the cost of steel and the cost to install a steel roof are constantly increasing, the value of a steel roof will constantly increase. Our steel shakes are superior to high maintenance, petroleum based shingles that have a limited lifetime and are expensive to replace. From the moment asphalt shingles are installed the shingles start to deteriorate. Your roof is part of your largest investment – your home or commercial property.

Superior Steel Roofing Systems :: Screws versus nails

The nails our competitors use do not have a washer, so this increased distance means that our competitors’ steel roofs do not provide the high resistance to moisture infiltration that Superior Steel Roofing Systems roofs do provide. As a result our competitors use gimmicks, such as testing the strength of screws and nails – when shear forces are applied - to try and convince the public that they have a better roofing system.
