When we bought our house in this area we knew that the roof on it was past it's prime. Since my husband was just about to head overseas with the military and we live in a heavy snow area of Eastern Ontario, we decided to go with a Metal Roof. From the different companies we contacted, we chose Bil-Den. The crew that showed up were courteous, professional and did an excellent job cleaning up (I had a toddler & 6 yr old at the time so very important that no nails, etc were left laying around!). Although the cost was higher than traditional asphalt shingles, it was worth every penny we paid and since the military is sending us to another area in Ontario and you can bet we will be getting another Bil-Den roof on the new house!!!!
