Lightweight & Residential

Ideal Roofing’s steel roofing panels will usually be appropriate and fitting for most architectural styles. Designed and developed in Canada to resist one of the world’s harshest climates and most extreme variations of temperature, Ideal Roofing’s long-length steel roofing panels are custom-cut to lengths up to 40 feet, fastened and secured from ridge cap to eave, often in one single sheet to minimize the number of seams and joints and the risk of water leakage.

Ideal Roofing’s steel panels are precisely engineered to prevent water infiltration with a unique anti-siphon overlapping design to withstand torrential rains, blowing snow, freezing rain and strong winds, and to resist punctures from falling branches and flying debris, hot burning embers, sparks blowing out of your fireplace chimney and the punishment of the baking hot summer sun.

With fewer joints than conventional roofing materials, advanced-technology metal roofing fasteners and proper installation procedures, steel roofing is definitely a worry-free long-lasting roofing solution.

Because of their excellent property to shed snow, steel roofing panels are the ideal roofing material for isolated summer homes and cottages.

Wakefield Bridge

Wakefield Bridge steel shingles are manufactured from new and recycled steel. Unlike common asphalt shingles made from fossil fuels, they aren’t subject to the fluctuations of world market oil prices. Contrary to discarded asphalt shingles clogging our landfill sites, they are entirely recyclable.

Their steel shingles are protected by our proven oven-baked Polyvinyledene Fluoride (PVDF) paint system with Kynar 500® resin and the most advanced “Cool Roof®” solar reflection technology ensuring exceptional protection from solar radiation and reducing the cost of summer air-conditioning.
