Installing Roof Shingles

Asphalt shingles are the roofing choice for most home owners in Alberta, and the rest of Canada. They perform well in all types of climates, provide variety of roofing options, and are available in multitude of colours, shapes and textures, to complement every house design. Asphalt shingles are also less expensive than some other roof material products, and are generally cheaper to repair. We ensure all shingles are installed according to the Wind Warranty application outlined by shingle manufacturers.

Re-roof in the winter? Absolutely! With the introduction of synthetic shingles, the temperature required to adhere the shingles is much cooler than with previous organic shingles. Many new homes have shingles applied in the winter for this reason. In out are, with the frequency of Chinooks during the winter, you can be confident that your shingles will adhere in the winter as well as they would in the summer.

IKO shingles are manufactured in Calgary; supporting our local economy is important to DC Roofing. All asphalt shingles removed from your roof are recycled.

Installing Roofing Underlayment

Felt paper or synthetic underlayment is installed as an additional insurance (beware if shingles are nailed without a layer of synthetic or felt paper). As a premier roofing contractor we also install additional underlayment called “ice and water shield” or “ice guard”, which is used for the first several courses of underlayment, and is necessary in cold climates such as ones in Alberta.







For optimum protection ice and water shield is applied in valleys, obstructions, along the eaves and rake edges of the roof. Make sure ask about it when you receive any roofing estimate.



Cedar Shakes

Cedar Shakes are common in the Calgary area. They also perform well in all types of climates. Cedar shakes are available in several different thicknesses (e.g., #1 Heavy, #2) and split applications (e.g., hand split, saw split). DC Roofing has extensive experience installing Cedar shakes and can assist you in choosing which type is best for your home and our Calgary climate.

Euroshield rubber shakes are manufactured in Calgary; supporting our local economy is important to DC Roofing. They are made from recycled tires reducing waste and promoting an environmentally friendly alternative.

Flashing

Flashing is metal or rubber barrier used to protect the seams around the roof elements or adjoining surfaces. You may require roof repairs to change your roof flashing or to add extra protection. Metal flashing is made of galvanized steel, copper or aluminum. Flashing’s job is to channel water off the roof and away from the seams. It’s installed in the areas where shingles cannot be applied, and would otherwise be prone to the leaks. Flashing in most cases has to be custom made for each roof.





Flashing is a critical component of installing a roof, that helps keep the structure watertight. Most roofs have flashings in the valleys and around the dormers. In the Calgary area, where we are prone Chinooks and drastic temperature changes in the winter, we recommend metal valleys. Closed valleys (i.e., shingled valleys) are prone to quicker deterioration due to our unique winters.
  • Old flashing is used as a template for the new flashing pieces
  • New flashing is installed around the chimney and other roof elements
  • Flashing is installed in the valley, to guide water down the roof



Venting

Did you know that your roof should have a vent for every 300 square feet? This efficient ventilation helps keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. We will ensure the correct amount of vents are installed on any new or re-roof.
