Have Questions?
We've Got Answers!

You’re not alone. Many people just like you want to know exactly what to expect and how 1st Choice Home Solutions can help. 

what is the minimum slope for metal roofing?

Each metal product will have a unique minimum slope the manufacturer will still warranty their product on. If you're thinking about replacing with a metal roof and using VicWest, their products from the True Nature line of Slate & Shake go down to a 3/12 slope or 14° of the horizontal. If your slope is 2/12 we do offer Ideal Roofing Low Slope Pocket Rib Metal Roofs and Ideal Roofing's Heritage Standing Seam panel.

Can you install Metal Roofing over Shingles?

The answer is it depends! In most cases yes you can provided the roof below is in good condition and no rot or soft spots are detected and there aren't too many layers already on. It does also depend on the type of metal roof you are putting on, some require strapping which are wood pieces that crisscross under the panels and some even have double strapping. The only real way to tell what your roof needs though is to have a professional come out an assess it.

What colour of metal roofing is best?

For the greatest energy savings a white or lighter colour metal roof will reflect the most solar rays and reduce heat transference. The industry standard for this is the solar reflectance index (SRI) and is on a scale from 1- black reflects absorbs almost all light to 100 which would reflect all light. Select the link below to view VicWest's complete colour collection with SRI ratings.

Do you Do Repairs?

We guarantee the workmanship of all our projects, but we do not do repairs separate from our projects. 

Do you Install VicWest Metal Roofing in the Winter?

Yes! While some crews don't work in extreme heat or cold (think -30C in winter or 39C in summer) as long as its not actively snowing, raining or hailing we can do your installation. 

Do you replace skylights?

In our 25+ years of experience when skylights are replaced by themselves they have a very high chance of creating problems with a roof. 1st Choice Home Solutions only replaces or adds skylights or sun tunnels when replacing the entire roof to help homeowners avoid future problems with leaking.
