A roof can do so much more than just protect you from the elements. When a roof is designed and installed with the highest standards and quality materials, it can drastically increase the value of your entire property. A proper roof should improve ventilation and overall appearance of your home or commercial property.
Asphalt shingles are a popular choice due to their durability, easy maintenance, and economic price. They are offered in a wide variety of colour options and styles. There are 2 main categories of asphalt shingles: Architectural and 3-Tab Design.
Architectural shingles are designed to mimic the appearance of classic wood shakes. The deep blended shadow colouring gives the appearance of dimension and depth. These shingles enhance the overall curb appeal of any home or commercial building.
Cedar shakes and shingles provide a natural look and feel that cannot be replicated by man-made roofing products. Cedar wood contains oils that naturally resist decay and can withstand the extreme temperature variations of Alberta weather.
There are two main types of Cedar shakes and shingles available: Handsplit & Resawn and Taper Sawn. Handsplit and Resawn shakes have the split face exposed and visible. These shakes are perfect for a more rustic, natural look to your home. Taper Sawn shakes and shingles have a more tailored appearance. These shakes are sawn on both sides to give a cleaner overall look.
