The great thing about metal roofs is that they are a perfect complement to the range of weather we have in Canada. In winter, metal roofs shed snow easier; while in the summer they deflect heat and rays. Although metal roofs require a lot of energy to create, they are very eco-friendly. When their time has come to be replaced, metal roofs can be completely recycled. In addition, metal roofs are known for their longevity--some metal roofs in Europe have lasted for over 400 years!
