Architectural Asphalt Shingles in Edmonton

Keeping Edmontonians Protected

Architectural asphalt shingles are the most popular roofing material with Edmonton residents as more people become aware of their benefits. Architectural asphalt shingles’ classic appearance and durability have made them popular for roof replacement or new construction. They resemble 3-Tab shingles but are constructed with fibreglass media instead of cardboard or paper (organic). 3-Tab organic asphalt shingles are practically extinct. Trust our team of expert roofers to install architectural asphalt or dimensional shingles.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    What are the benefits of Architectural Asphalt Shingles?

    Architectural Asphalt Shingles offer numerous benefits, including durability and a long lifespan. They are easy to install, energy-efficient, and withstand extreme weather conditions. Available in various colours, they enhance curb appeal while providing excellent sound protection. Their Class A fire rating also ensures maximum fire resistance, making them a practical and resilient roofing solution.

    How should I prepare for installation?

    Before your roofing contractors get to work, take a few steps in preparation. Clear any outdoor furniture blocking their access and remove items from walls or shelves mounted on the wall; vibrations during construction can cause them to fall. If necessary, cover attic contents with tarps so dust and debris won’t disturb them during installation!

    Should we remove the old layer of shingles before adding a new layer?

    When it comes to roofing, adding a new layer of shingles over existing ones is not recommended. Not only do old nails start backing out and damaging the fresh material, but additional layers can put too much strain on the structure itself – often designed for single-layer support alone! Before taking on any projects involving multiple layers of shingle roofs, ensure your property meets all safety codes first.
