The true test for roofing materials is that of time. In Ottawa, Canada, time has proven no match for the performance and longevity of the DECRA Roofing System. Charles Lortie, a building owner and roofing contractor, put the DECRA product to the test on an apartment building that has been converted over the last three decades into condominiums. In 1978, Charles replaced a composition roof on the apartment building with DECRA Tile in Garnet. At this time, this is one of the oldest installations of DECRA product in North America. While the building has gone through many internal changes, the roof has maintained the same look as it did on day one of installation. The DECRA tiles have not faded or degraded, and continue to endure Canada’s harsh elements. The garnet-hued   tiles covering   the building’s   turrets and mansard contribute to the classic architectural aesthetics of the building, 37 years later. Aside from aesthetics, the DECRA roof has been remarkably durable. DECRA Tile is installed on a batten system. The interlocking panels are fastened into the battens horizontally through the nose of the panel rather than vertically like other materials. By fastening the panel horizontally into the nose of the panel, and subsequently into the batten, wind resistance is increased because the nail would have to be sheared apart in order for the panel to lift up. Because DECRA products are made from metal, they are freeze-thaw resistant, carry a Class A fire rating for material, and have a Class 4 hail resistance rating from Underwriters Laboratories Canada (ULC) and meeting Canadian and international safety standards and durability of the product.

The 3,000 square foot project was installed easily, "There were no complications   during   the install or since," offered Mr. Lortie. After 37 years, Mr.  Lortie’s building demonstrates the benefits of using DECRA Roofing products. "I have stuck with DECRA because they were the first to manufacture stone coated steel roofing. They are known for their reliability and that is why I have been a loyal contractor ever since."

Charles Lortie, owner of Metal Pro Roofing in Ottawa, Canada, has a crew of eight, and continues to install DECRA's roofing products throughout Canada and other countries. Since 1978, 37 years of experience, done of 90% of all DECRA roof within 150 Km from Ottawa.
