It was announced at the International Roofing Expo® that Canadian builders and contractors will soon be able to offer their customers a superior impact, fire, and wind-resistant metal roofing option. CertainTeed®’s luxury metal roofing line, Matterhorn® Metal Roofing, will be available throughout Canada in the first quarter of 2019.
Matterhorn Metal Roofing utilizes mottling, chiseling, and other techniques to replicate the look and charm of real wood shake, quarried slate, and traditional clay tile roofing, in a deep-drawn steel format that is lightweight, fully recyclable, and energy-efficient. It also features an anti-corrosive proprietary paint coating system and 16 cool roof-rated colors that reflect up to 66% of the sun’s rays.
Matterhorn’s design also makes it stronger than typical steel and features Class 4 impact resistance, Class A fire resistance, and a 130-mph wind rating. Roofs built with Matterhorn have a life expectancy of more than 50 years, allowing it to have one of the strongest warranties in the industry and making it highly suitable for Canada’s typically harsh winters. Due to its durability, longevity, and energy-saving cool roof color options, Matterhorn often qualifies for home insurance discounts.
