Roofing today is available in many different materials and profiles. It is important to consider all aspects of the wide variety of materials on the market today. Determining what roof is best for you depends on your personal preference, budget, and style of home. There are many options, so it’s important to hire a contractor who can explain all the differences.

Asphalt

The most common type of roofing material today is made out of asphalt. Commonly referred to as architectural shingles, they are made form 2 layers of asphalt layered together.

 

Architectural shingles are available in many colours and grades, and some are made of more durable material which are designed to withstand hailstorms common in Alberta.

 

Installing class 4 shingles may reduce your insurance premiums so the additional initial investment is offset by the lower cost of insurance.
