Why “metal roof” and why CLM Steel Roofing?

When driving through the neighborhoods of Edmonton you may seen that many more people have gone with a metal roof. The reason for this is that shingles no longer have the longevity they once had ever since asbestos was banned back in 1989. The average life expectancy of an installed asphalt shingle roof is anywhere from 10-15 years. In addition to low life expectancy there are other reasons why asphalt shingles are inferior to a Edmonton metal roof:


Maintenance and repair is constantly needed with shingles due to the harsh Canadian winter. This results in rising costs of the Edmonton steel roofing. Our steeling roofing products from CLM Edmonton metal roofing can withstand RC3 levels of corrosion.

Save on your energy bill!

When it is summer you may have noticed that the attic gets very hot when you don’t have metal roofing. This is because the shingles absorb heat from the sun and the lack of good ventilation forces the heat to be trapped in the attic and spread to the rest of the house.

The advantage of a metal roof is that it isn’t installed directly over your roof. There is a healthy amount of space between your roof and the metal which allows for great ventilation and airflow. The metal roof also reflects 85% of sunlight which means you would not be trapping heat and can keep your energy costs much lower.
