Are you in your forever home and thinking about making the switch from regular asphalt shingles to a metal roofing system that will last you a lifetime? A metal roof can be a great investment that will protect your home from wind, rain, hail, snow and ice and Wakefield Bridge Steel Shingles represent the cream of the crop when it comes to metal roofing systems.
How much do steel or metal roof shingles weigh?
Did you know that common asphalt shingles, cedar shakes and slate roofing weigh 60% more than Wakefield Bridge Steel Shingles? It’s true and while it might not seem like a big deal, consider this. The average shingle job on a 1650 sq ft roof requires 3000lbs in shingles alone. Combined with a solid layer of snow during the winter and your roof could be carrying up to 10,000lbs! That’s a lot of stress on the frame and foundation of your home. These steel shingles help reduce that weight while maintaining it’s structural integrity all while looking fantastic and lasting longer.
On top of that, Wakefield Bridge metal roofs are more resistant to heat and cold meaning they will not curl, rot, crack, break, chip, peel or perforate under normal use. These super shingles even carry weather ratings for rain, ice, frost, hail, wind and fire!
Wakefield Bridge Shingles Weather Ratings
- Frost, hail, rain and ice rating = UL 2218 Class 4
- Wind rating = TAS100, Miami Dade, 177km/hr
- Fire = Fire rated class A, ASTM E108
Engineered for Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter in Ottawa
There aren’t many major cities on the planet that experience extreme temperatures like we do here in Ottawa. From 35 above Celsius in the summer to 40 below in the winter, homes here need to be built to withstand everything Mother Nature can throw at them. The good news is you can rest assured that Wakefield Bridge steel shingles are up to the task!
The core of Wakefield Bridge Steel Shingles is made of 29 guage rolled steel and then surrounded by 5 additional layers of protection. The first layer surround the rolled steel core is a Galvalume, Zinc, Aluminum coating. Then a Chromate chemical pre-treatment is added to enhance paint adhesion and corrosion resistance. Once that sets, a corrosion resistant primer is added to prep for a final layer of stucco embossed texture called Fluropon premium fluoropolymer. This final coating is protected using a proven oven-baked PCDF paint system with Kynar 500 resin and the most advanced Cool Roof solar reflection technology available. Long story short, these shingles are carefully engineered to be protected from solar radiation meaning they reduce the cost of keeping your home both warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

No matter what products your low slope or flat roof needs, Rydel flat roofing will install it with excellence!
Modified Bitumen (MDM)
Modified Bitumen also known as mod Bit or MDM is a flat roofing surface constructed of asphalt, rubber modifiers and solvents mixed together and formed into large rolls. The main benefit of modified bitumen roofing are its flexibility in both cold and hot weather as well as its ease of replacement. The life expectancy of an MDM roof is about 25 years and the warranty on the membrane itself is 12 years. As part of the Thermoset class of roofing systems MDM is installed using a torch on system.
TPO Roofing Systems (Thermoplastic Olefin)
TPO is installed by bonding the underside of the membrane using an induction welder, low-ride urethane foam or mechanically ballasted rather than your tradition torch-on methods. All seams and flashings are bonded using welding equipment that heats air resulting in a nearly seamless finished product. The key benefits to a TPO roofing system are that they are resistant to grease, offer exceptionally high wind ratings and come with a 30-year manufacturer warranty.
PVC Flat Roofing Systems (Polyvinyl Chloride)
PVC, otherwise known as polyvinyl chloride is a light-weight, single-ply roofing membrane used on flat or moderately sloped commercial and industrial roofs. Reinforced with polyester, fiberglass matting or scrim, PVC holds a high flame resistance and can be installed directly overtop and existing surface meaning it can save money on tear-offs as well as installation.
