Types of Roof Shingles in Calgary
Asphalt shingles are made of fiberglass that is between layers of asphalt and ceramic granules. Light and easy to install, they are 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.
