Quality metal Roofing systems to last a lifetime
Metal Roofing Products
Thinking of installing a metal roof on your home in Metro Vancouver? After all a metal roofing products will never have to be replaced once installed. The life span of a traditional asphalt roof is between 20 and 30 years. However a metal roof will last upwards of a 100 years. Most importantly it can be washed and look brand new even after decades of weather. To clarify a myth that metal roofs are loud I can tell you I have never had a client come back to us and complain. Another myth is metal roofs are too expensive? If your homes roof is simple a metal roof can be very affordable.
30 – 40 – 50 year roofing products
Asphalt Roofing systems
Laminated Shingle roofing Products
Asphalt Shingle roofing products are the most common, sometimes called laminated roofing systems that are installed across Vancouver BC. Installing asphalt roofing products can be fast, easy, and affordable. The average cost of a laminated 30 year shingle roof is about $450.00 per 100 square feet. If there is custom flashings, chimney work, or plywood needed it can obviously go up from there. 40 year shingles are a heavier grade product, they come in standard shapes, and architectural shingles with more of a cedar cut shape to them. 50 year shingles are the highest grade asphalt shingles we install and are a 3ply system. These shingles are high end and will make your home look like a million bucks.

Torch on Roofing Systems
One of the most common flat roofing systems we install in torch on roofing systems, Over the last 20 years most commercial roofs that were tar and gravel are being replaced with torch on. Torch on roofing products are a great option for any flat roof. Whether its your home or commercial building torch on when installed by a professional will be strong durable and ready to stand up to anything Mother Nature can throw at it.
Simple roofing systems require a recovery board or (Fibreglass matting) that is designed to withstand heat. Fire tape and mechanical plates and screws are typically used if application is to plywood. Once this part is completed we use a 180 heavy duty torch down rubber base sheet, then a 250 torch down cap sheet. The cap sheeting is designed with a UV granular system similar to an asphalt shingle to protect it from the sun. When we install commercial torch on roofing systems we install a build up system. The torch on build up system comes with a vapour barrier, ISO board (Insulation) Recovery system, and then the 2 ply torch on above it.
Manufacturers warranty all these products from 10 to 20 years. If your roof is in need of replacement we can sometimes primer the existing cap layer and apply a 1 or 2 layer torch on over it. This will depend on condition of existing roof.

What is the cost of installing a roof
Most people imagine a roof is going to be extremely expensive, and ask the question what is the cost of installing a roof in Vancouver today? Well it’s 2022 and the cost of everything has gone up. Even getting materials has become a challenge with supply shortages everywhere. The average cost of a roof will depend on a few things.
- How big is my roof?
- What type of roofing materials do we want to install?
- Is my existing roof 1 layer or multiple layers?
- Is there plywood under existing roof, or is it cedar or tile. In the case it has strapping.
- Can the roofers access the roof for a bin
- Can a Crane truck reach the house to load materials or will they need to load it by hand?
So they are the first questions you should ask. The next question you will ask is what type of roofing materials are out there and what is the difference in price and quality.
