Our roof has survived many hail storms without visible effect

5/5

This letter of reference is intended for people considering to re-roof their home or garage.

We moved into our newly built home at the end of 1976 and by 1987 our asphalt shingled roof had deteriorated to the point that replacement was necessary.

We naturally looked for a roof that would last much longer than the old one and settled on aluminum interlocking tiles with a suitable surface finish and color. Aluminum does not rust at the cut edges and the finishing process lets the roof reflect a lot of incident heat in the summer. The tiles are folded at the edges so that the tiles interlock and the aluminum nails with rubber grommets provide a water seal and are invisible.

The surface profile gave the roof a natural pleasing look although the glossy surface has dulled over the last 30 years but still blends in well with the surroundings.

In 2006 we built a garage and wanted to match the roof to the house.
We contracted with Interlock Industries and Mr. Peter Stewart showed us samples of the roof tiles and colors. We believe the product is essentially the same durable material with maybe improved color retention and different cover layers for over top of the wood.

Peter has various roofers available to choose from. Our roofer showed us pictures of various challenging roofs he had completed and during construction I inspected his method and workmanship. I was pleased with his work and attention to detail, although roofing is a slow process if done right. Our simple garage roof was done in two days.

Metal roofs behave differently than asphalt roofs. During warm spells in winter accumulated snow may slide down. This lightens the weight on the roof trusses, so I don’t mind. During heavy rain and hail you can hear the hail hit the roof, however in today’s homes with the thicker thermal insulation in the attic this effect is much reduced. Our roof has survived many hail storms without visible effect while many of our neighbours have had to file claims with their insurance companies for hail damage to their roofs.

We believe in durable materials and construction for our home and these roofs have satisfied our needs. If you want to take a closer look you are most welcome to visit us at [REMOVED FOR PRIVACY]

The finished product truly is a work of art that will enhance our home for years to come!

5/5

Our experience with Interlock Metal Roofing Systems can only be described as highly recommended.

From the start, Matthew was very knowledgeable on the roofing product and was able to fully describe what was needed for our house. He was able to give us multiple examples of homes that had this system installed on it which allowed us to visualize and decide on the style that we wanted. Once this was completed, he went out of his way to ensure that all of our questions were answered and that we were educated on this product.

After the roof was ordered, Shauna did an exceptional job communicating the status of our roof and when it was expected to be delivered as well as when the installation would begin. She was extremely thorough in what we were to expect and the timing of everything that would occur. Due to it being a custom roof, the materials had to be manufactured prior to the installation being done. She continued to update us as the materials were being manufactured and any changes that occurred with the scheduling. She is an absolutely extraordinary resource to have and made the total experience complete. Without her work coordinating and communicating the status of the job, our satisfaction would not be at the same level!

Our installer, Oswaldo, and his crew can only be described as extraordinary! They are truly Master Craftsmen and are some of the best we have ever worked with on ANY project. Their thoroughness, attention to detail, communication and general demeanor were beyond anything that could have been expected. From the time they arrived in the morning to the time they left every evening they were a joy to work with. The worksite was cleaned up every evening and was always organized as the job proceeded. Oswaldo and his crew are truly what made this job perfection! His updates on the project were very detailed and his explanation of every step of the process made us feel like we truly were fully involved. We could not recommend him any higher and he looked after our home like it was his own!

We could not be prouder of the way the job was completed and we are very happy with the Interlock Metal Roofing System that was installed. The finished product truly is a work of art that will enhance our home for years to come!

Roof makes our home look brand new

5/5

Hi Neil,

I just wanted to drop you a quick note about my experiences with our new roof installation.

The first thing is I believe the roof makes our home look brand new. It has really improved the look of our house. The second thing is I can’t say enough about the fellows that installed it. Unfortunately, they had to work through some weather issues which caused some delays however they certainly did their best and the installation was still done on time. The last thing is we had project supervisors come by on a regular basis to check on the progress.

All in all, I would recommend your company to anyone.

Thank you for everything!

We had some very high winds and rain...

I’m sending you this letter to let you know how pleased we are with our new roof.

Eswaldo and his crew arrived in a very timely fashion and proceeded to install the roof in a very professional manner. All our questions and concerns were answered and they worked long hours to do the installation before the weather deteriorated.

We were impressed that all of the boots around vents and pipes coming out of the roof were replaced with new ones and any sites of possible leaks were dealt with prior to installing the roof.

The roof itself looks very good and has made our home look much more appealing than the previous roof. We had some very high winds and rain a couple of nights ago and there were no problems with the roof. It was nice to listen to the wind and rain and not have to worry about leaks or asphalt shingles that might have been thinking about taking an unexpected trip to Saskatchewan.

Thanks again for a great job and a great product.

Kindest regards,

All Interlock personnel we dealt with were personable, courteous and professional

5/5

All Interlock personnel we dealt with were personable, courteous and professional. The installer (whose name I don’t recall) was a very able, diligent and hard worker. When he had helpers onsite – primarily for stripping the old shake and asphalt roof materials – they also worked well and without loud music or coarse language. Also, our contact at Interlock’s office (Shawna) was courteous and helpful – even to lending us the heavy material display panel from the showroom to take home for a weekend AND helping me load it in my car!

We’ve had positive comments from neighbors and from passers-by when we’re outside. One of the more interesting was, “We loved the look of your old cedar shake roof and were afraid what you might be replacing it with, but it looks great – good choice!

There was no sales pressure tactics or gimmicks

5/5

It was time to re-roof my house. Although I wasn’t sure if I was going to stay, sell or rent my home I decided a “life time” roof would benefit me in any case. My decision was sound. The roof is beautiful to look at and I get compliments from neighbors all the time. One of the aftermaths of a very heavy rain or hail is the sludge sediments from an asphalt roof that accumulates in the gutter – this is a thing of the past now.

This is the first winter with the new roof and I’m anxious to see if there’ll be a cost savings in my heating bills and conversely a cooler house in the summer but I don’t see any reason to question Interlock’s claims regarding improved home efficiency. There was no sales pressure tactics or gimmicks just a courteous professional who visited my home at the prescribed time and quickly drew up an attractive contract. The installer also performed flawlessly and professionally and completed the installation in the prearranged time line.

I wholeheartedly recommend Interlock and their products. You’ll have a life time of pride of ownership as well as being the envy of the block.

No more old roofing for the city dump

5/5

I’ve had a few days to get used to the look of the new roof, and I can’t believe how good it looks, nothing like the metal roofs of old. It looks like slate, exactly as you said it would.

Arthur (the roofer) was a real pleasure, polite, friendly and very hard working. He took great efforts to clean up any debris at the end of each day. He swept the lawn with a magnet to pick up any dropped nails and screws. He even painted any scratched paint work.

I have the satisfaction of knowing that the house will never need re-roofing, which means no more old roofing for the city dump, and that the new roof is made from recycled materials I couldn’t be more pleased with the new roof and I would recommend it to everybody.

Thank you to everybody at Interlock for making it happen.

More environmentally friendly than an asphalt roof

5/5

After careful consideration of the different roofing materials and styles available; we were convinced that the aluminum roof system offered by Interlock Industries (Alberta) Ltd. (hereafter referred to as “Interlock”) was the best choice for us.

Four years ago we moved into a 30-year-old home, which has been in the family since it was built.  We knew that the original cedar shakes would need replacing; they had served the homes’ inhabitants well but were nearing the end of their ‘life expectancy’.  We are a young family and so price was an important factor; however, we also plan on remaining in this house for many years to come.  We decided that the investment in a “lifetime roof” was worth it for us, and we also appreciated the fact that it was more environmentally friendly than an asphalt roof.

Our roof was installed over the course of ten days, only delayed a few days by two major snowstorms.  The installation crew, led by James, was wonderful.  They worked long and hard each day, they were considerate, conscientious, and personable; I would recommend James to anyone interested in an Interlock roof.

Likewise, we appreciated your willingness, Joe, to work with us throughout the process.  Your consideration of our queries and concerns was noted and valued.

We are the first homeowners, on our bay of ten homes, to re-roof from the original shakes; the black slate design looks terrific…we will undoubtedly be fielding queries about your product and company!

With thanks,

So nice to know that we will never have to re-shingle again

5/5

We would like to thank you and Interlock Roofing for job well done in replacing our roof. When you visited to explain your product and what a great improvement it would be to our home, we couldn’t really imagine how true this would be. We had seen other homes in our area with your product and were very impressed by the look of the roof.

From the time of placing our order and having the job completed it was all within the time frame that was quoted to us. We would like to share a special thank you to Jason and Darren, our two installers, who did the job in a very professional manner. Clean up of the yard, after install was completed was also exceptional. Also we certainly appreciated the extra attention that Brad gave in following the progress of the install and his personal contact with us after the job had been completed.

We would recommend Interlock and Brad to family and friends. The thing we like most about the roofing system is that it is maintenance free and we feel this has added value to our home.

Yours truly,

We have experienced four seasons of weather; cold, snow, hail, rain, wind and sunshine and it performed extremely well

5/5

When friends of ours, who had just had an Interlock Roof installed, raved about their new roof, we were skeptical, but invited Brad to make a presentation before Christmas, 2005.

What he showed us about the roof and our unique requirements was right for us, so we gave him our order and work began in early 2006. No money up front and nothing until the job is completed to our full satisfaction was good enough for us.

The roof is huge, a very steep 10/12 pitch and with a number of ridges and valleys, skylights, chimneys and vents. We were concerned about winter installation, and especially the removal of the old pine shakes in potentially inclement weather. Our concerns were unwarranted as they removed sections of the old roof and installed the new, during the winter, and without leaving it unprotected. Our compliments to the installers, who were very competent, taking great pride in doing it right, having to scaffold and secure by ropes, in some very cold and uncomfortable conditions.

The results is a very beautiful black slate look, which certainly enhances the look and value of our home. We have experienced four seasons of weather; cold, snow, hail, rain, wind and sunshine and it performed extremely well. We were concerned about hail but it withstood large hail without damage and the noise was no greater than the neighbour’s cedar shakes.

We have no hesitation in recommending Interlock Roofing, Brad and their installers, and we are confident we have a roof that will outlive our needs.

Sincerely,
Jack and Nim Myton
