Asphalt:

American roof shingles known as asphalt shingles are the most popular form of roofing material in North America with 9 out of 10 American homes or over 81,000,000 American roofs clad in this roof product.

The most popular type of roofing materials in North America today are referred to as Architectural shingles. They are made of multiple layers that are joined together, so they add depth and dimension to your roof. They were originally made to resemble a wooden shake roof with a more textured and uneven appearance. These architectural shingles will provide long lasting protection and performance to your roof, making your house stand apart from other houses that have other types of roofing products. Architectural shingles protect more homes Worldwide than any other roof type. American roof suppliers have several grades with each grade offering more performance, 30, 40 and LT Lifetime Warranties.

Recently Shingle Manufacturers have changed their warranties once again. They are now offering 50 years, non-prorated labor and material. BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THIS ONE!!!! Make sure you read the small print and don’t be fooled. We all know that these shingles will not last 50 years.

Some types will offer high definition color blends for exceptional depth and dimension giving your home more curb appeal than other roofs. Your street appeal affects your homes re-sale value.



Real estate experts suggest that up to 40% of the street appeal of your home comes from your roof.



Shingles come in fibre-glass based and organic versions the fibre-glass being the most popular and the strongest.

The other very popular style is a three tab shingle. Three tab’s have a more symmetrical regular shape and are made to resemble a slate roof.

Three tab shingles come with different warranties: 20, 30 and 40 year; often referred to as lifetime; The main difference between these types is the amount of asphalt used in production. Generally speaking if more asphalt is used it will take longer to be broken down by the elements mainly UV giving their extended life.

Metal roofing last longer, stands up to the elements and is better for the environment. You will find that your new metal roof provides incredible benefits.

Every single day the roof of a building receives the brunt of the elements. Every day it is subjected to one or more of the following: wind, rain, snow and a direct bombardment of UV rays. It stands to reason that the investment you make in your roof protects the entire investment of your home. A metal roof is the surest way to secure the investment you’ve made in your property because it outperforms any other roofing material.

In support of this are manufacturers’ warranties that are far in excess of anything else ever offered in the industry. Many of our products have a 40 year unconditional warranty on the paint finish alone! In the past, with other roofing options, warranties like this were unheard of!


Metal roofing last longer, stands up to the elements and is better for the environment. You will find that your new metal roof provides incredible benefits.

Gone are the days when your only choices for roofing are asphalt based products that:

  • Are nothing more than fibrous materials soaked in petrochemicals that pollute our ground water every time it rains.
  • That require maintenance and even with that will have to be replaced every 10-15 years.
  • Have to be torn off before re-roofing causing unnecessary costs and wasting limited resources–your money and our planet.

Gone are the days when your only choices for roofing are cement based materials that:

  • Require extra bracing in your roof members to support their weight.
  • Break and snap apart when you walk on your roof or when there’s a wind storm.
  • Are expensive and require specialized skills to install.

With metal roofing, you can all have all of the benefits and none of the disadvantages of conventional roofing methods. In fact, you’ll have more benefits with metal than you will with any other choice!
