Roofing

Homeowners making a change to their roof have three main factors to consider when selecting a roofing material: price, durability, and appearance. The main roofing materials you can consider in Calgary and Southern Alberta are asphalt shingles, metal roofing, rubber roofing, and cedar shakes. Here’s a little bit more information about each of those!
Asphalt Shingles
Asphalt shingles are by far the most popular roofing product installed in the Calgary area. Asphalt shingles are available in a variety of colours and grades. Depending on the quality of the shingle, you can expect a lifespan of as little as 12 to 15 years, or as much as 30 to 40 years. If you are planning to stay in your home for the long term, a high quality asphalt shingle may be the choice for you!
Metal Roofing
Metal roofing is extremely durable and can come in just about any colour. Metal or steel roofing is one of the longest lasting roofing systems available on the market, lasting up to 100 years! Metal roofing really is the ultimate in terms of durability. If you’re interested in learning about never having to reroof your home or business again, call AV Built Construction for a free metal roof consultation!
Rubber Roofing
In Calgary if you’re interested in rubber roofing, the best choice is Euroshield by GEM. Did you know that over a 50 year life cycle, asphalt roofing is actually the most expensive material? That’s because asphalt will need to be changed two to four times by the time your Euroshield rubber roof needs to be replaced! Warranted to withstand hail stones up to 2” in diameter, a Euroshield rubber roof is a durable choice that also looks great.
Cedar Shake Roof
Cedar shakes installed by AV Built Construction offer a timeless look for your home. Cedar shake roofs can last for 40 years or more, relying on the natural characteristics of cedar to resist rot. Regular maintenance of cedar shake roofs will help your roof last for as long as possible! Call AV Built Construction for information on a cedar shake roof today!
