Needing new roofing and roof repairs is no small task. Whether your roof shingles have been damaged in a storm, need to be replaced after years of use or have started to fall off, getting the right shingles for your needs and your budget is important. There are many types of residential roofing products to choose from, including wood and metal. If you’re unsure about trying something new, you can go with the tried and true asphalt shingles.
Probably the most common roofing material used by homeowners in North America, asphalt roof shingles have been around for decades. Century Roofing Limited is a proud certified installer of IKO products. They manufacture many forms of asphalt shingles that set the standard in durability and design.
Asphalt shingles are made of fibreglass that’s between layers of asphalt and ceramic granules. Light and easy to install, they’re a great option when you need to re-roof on a budget. They have the ability to last 30 or more years, but they are more susceptible to high winds than other types of roofing such as wood or metal. Asphalt roofing mainly comes in laminate shingles, also called “architectural” or “dimensional” shingles. They are layered, and their thickness and depth make them look more like slate or wood shakes. They are laminated with an additional asphalt layer that creates a contoured, dimensional look. Asphalt sealant is used to bond the layers and create a more waterproof product.
Asphalt shingles may seem like the most basic type of residential roofing, but this isn’t the case. They have a level of versatility and variety that most people don’t realize. Partnered with IKO, we offer roof shingles in Calgary that have many great benefits, including:
