3 Roof Styles Recommended By Calgary Roofers
There are some new roof styles that our Calgary roofers recommend for homes in our area. The same old standard asphalt shingles won’t do if you want some additional protection from high wind, ice dams, and algae.
Every component of a roof plays an important role in protecting your home. When it’s time to construct a new roof or replace an old one, this is a great opportunity to try shingles made with advanced technologies. Take a look at these options.
Malarkey Algae Resistant Asphalt Shingles
We install Malarkey roofing systems on homes in Calgary. The shingles are made with specialized granules which resist black algae streaks. Customers love them because they are beautiful and can reduce the discoloration problem caused by algae. The shingles retain their vibrant hues for much longer.
Algae is destructive to a roof, so a shingle that has New Streak Resist™ Technology will last longer. Streak Resist™ Technology is a blend of algae resistant copper granules that help maintain the aesthetic appearance of your roof and may reduce the need to clean your roof.
IKO Shield Shingles – Wind Resistant Technology
Shield shingles from IKO use maximum wind resistant technology to protect the home from leaks caused by storm damage. There are many styles available. These shingles stay together in high winds and are constructed so the roofer can anchor it with a larger than average nailing area.
Inspire Roofing – Engineered Slate & Shake Roofing
If you want a beautiful slate or shake roof but want a shingle that’s stronger, go with Inspire Roofing products. Our Calgary roofers recommend this brand of synthetic shade and slate roofing because it stands up well to even the most extreme weather conditions. You can walk on this roof without worrying about breaking the tiles. This is a Class A Fire Rated roofing system that looks very real.
