For over 30 years, the manufacturing process and equipment for roofing has evolved. This Quebec-based company specializing in the design and installation of Metstar metal roofing has succeeded in keeping pace with this evolution in the industry. Toitures Distinction offers Metstar metal roof tiles coated with several protective layers, which ensure an unrivalled longevity.
Composed of 30% recycled steel, the tiles are rigid enough to withstand reasonable loads without the risk of cracking or significant elastic recovery.
But How Is This Possible?
The first barrier of protection on the panels is achieved when the steel passes through a bath of molten aluminum-zinc alloy. This coating combines both the protection and strength of the underlying steel, and this for a period of more than 50 years. An acrylic coating is then applied to both sides of the panel to further enhance its durability.
The Base Coat
This layer is in fact an acrylic based solution with highly UV resistant properties. It is then covered with a range of colored natural stone granules. The natural stone layer gives the roof a nice look and also enhances the protection against aging. Indeed, there are different shades of natural stone. An acrylic overglaze containing algae inhibitors is applied as a final coating to the metal roofing panel. The extremely durable acrylic finish of a Metstar metal roof improves resistance to physical damage and gives the granules a semi-gloss appearance.
Toitures Distinction claims that this type of roofing is guaranteed for 50 years, and transferable to the new owner. The durability of metal tile panels is proven, which is why they are covered by such a warranty.
Metstar metal roofing is an Energy Star certified product that meets strict energy performance specifications. It helps lower your electricity bill while reducing the impact on the environment.
Moreover, with a metal roofing system, the resale value of your property will be higher. Do not forget that the cost of replacing a roof when selling a house is often one of the negotiation points raised by the buyer. With a warranty that is transferable to the new owner, your metal roof will become an important point of negotiation during the sale.
While the initial cost of a Metstar metal roof may seem more expensive than some of the other roofing materials available, it is an investment, not an expense.
