Estimating

Total Square Footage

Here are sample drawings of some common roof types. Determine your roof type and provide an aerial drawing with all required measurements.

To estimate how many shingles, you will need, you will need to know the total square footage of your roof surface. 

Find this number by measuring the length and width of each plane/section on the roof (including dormers), then multiply length’ by widths.

To find/ calculate the roof’s total square footage, simply add the square footage of each of the measured sections together  

 If you do not need drawing and quotation and you know exactly what you need, just come to our Four Seasons Metal Roofing “factory outlet” and place an order with one of our sales consultants. 

We will prepare the order for your immediate pick up and you are good to go!

Installation

The Four Season’s staff wants to work with you to exceed your expectations when installing our metal roof. Our staff will strive to be courteous and professional. We recognize that a property is a valued asset. Four Seasons will respond quickly to your roofing needs. We will deliver the best value and highest quality of product and service every time. Our staff is well trained and dedicated to each project. No matter what your roofing needs are, we have the knowledge and craftsmanship to provide a quality solution. Furthermore we use the latest technology to prepare and form the steel or aluminium for each roof. We are constantly updating our tools, trucks and other equipment to ensure that every crew can work safely, efficiently and on top of industry standards. The Swedish steel used for a Four Seasons metal roof is the best in the industry. And most importantly we are able to offer you a competitive price.

Steel and aluminium panels can be used in both new construction and re-roofing applications. It is recommended that the metal panels be installed over existing shingles and a vapor permeable membrance with vertical and horizontal wood strapping for proper ventilation. For roofing installations over spaced framing, that is exposed inside your barn or church, it is highly recommended to use a moisture membrane as condensation can occur. We recommend Drip Stop for this type of installation. Once the roof deck is prepared, covered with vapour permeable membrane and wood strapping; the starting flashing, inside hip, gables and valleys are installed first. Next the custom cut steel panels are fastened to wood strapping. The outside gable, wall flashing, ridge caps, end caps and snow guards are installed last. This allows for a proper watertight seal and prepares your roof for all four seasons.

Overall, each project will be unique. It is best to discuss your installation with your Four Seasons sales representative and project supervisor. They will explain each step and will customize your order to your liking.
