Metal/Steel Roofing: Built to Last
Call or drop by our Thunder Bay facility with your measurements for a quotation today. We’d be happy to discuss the many benefits of metal/steel roofing, which include ease of installation, fire-resistance, the use of lightweight materials and longer product lifespans on average. When properly installed, a metal roof will typically last as long as your house withstanding even the harshest Canadian weather elements.

Since 2002, Howie’s Saw has provided the highest quality steel roofing materials, with a great range of options in colours and profiles. From the very beginning, we’ve also offered professional installations of the same products we carry in the Thunder Bay area.
Frequently Asked Questions
Cost is determined by a number of variables:
Amount of product you will need to complete the roofing or siding project, and the amount of labour it takes to install the product will have an effect on the total cost. The scope of the project is a determining factor in the price range.
In addition, complexity of the roof or siding area is another factor in determining price. Valleys or transitions, dormers, number of hips etc will add to the complexity of the project.
Style type of the roofing or siding desired; whether it is standing seam, vertical rib, or tiled, all styles vary in price.
Colours and paint system can also impact the cost of steel roofing.
Because metal roofing is a premium, longer life home product, you can expect the initial cost to be more than an asphalt shingle roof would cost. However, no matter what kind of metal roofing style you choose, its life cycle cost will be less. In the long run, a metal roof is less expensive than tile, cedar shake and slate roofing.
Steel roofing not only provides strength, but also when coupled with high build finishes, absorbs and deadens much of the noise (when applied direct to the deck). With the home insulation standards of today, you should not notice any difference in noise levels between roofing materials.
