Warranty and Ownership

A lifetime roof – the economical and ecological choice

Limited 100-year warranty against corrosion of the aluminum.
Limited 50-year warranty for the paint.
The warranties are transferable to the new owners if the property is sold. 

Ferblanterie de l’Est adds an additional 10-year warranty. We can offer this extended warranty because we add an extra layer of protection in our Saint-Pascal plant. It is applied by a robotic system and then baked on for an super-durable finish.

FINISH

Our aluminum products are supplied by Gentek and are manufactured with AA3000 series alloy or the equivalent. Both sides of the aluminum shingles are cleaned using a specially formulated cleaner. Once cleaned, the aluminum is treated with an acidic solution containing chrome to improve corrosion resistance and coating adhesion. 

The upper side of the pre-treated aluminum is then coated with a thermosetting polyester polymer, dried and then baked at about 232 °C (450 °F), forming a hard but flexible and weatherproof layer. The total thickness of the coating is about 18 micrometres.

WEATHERING AND TESTING 

The superior adhesion and forming properties of Gentek products are tested on a regular basis. Product testing includes verification of colour, film thickness and gloss; hot water impact test, freezer impact test, salt spray corrosion testing, humidity testing and outdoor exposure tests.

COMPLIANCE

All Gentek aluminum products comply with CAN/CGSB-93.2-M91. In addition, the aluminum alloy used meets ULC standard CAN4-S114-M80 that defines the non-combustibility of aluminum alloys.
