Roofing Materials We Specialize in

Metal Roofs

Metal roofs consist of various designs of manufactured metal panels. They are installed over a waterproof underlay and offer extreme durability, long lifespan and excellent water and snow shedding properties.


Appropriate for any weather conditions Calgary may bring, metal tiles look like traditional, natural tile. These metal tiles are made with a wavy, scale-shaped painted look facing out, while on the other side is a protective layer to protect your home from the elements.

Tile Roofs

Tile roofs are manufactured from lightweight concrete or ceramic and are incredibly durable with a lifespan of up to 75 years. They are available in many colours and offer a large selection of profiles. Their heavier weight may make them unsuitable for some applications but does make them particularly resistant to wind damage.

Rubber Roofs

Rubber roofs are manufactured from recycled rubber. They are an incredibly durable product and have a lifespan of up to 75 years. They are available in a wide variety of colours and have an outward appearance that closely matches natural shakes or slate and are much lighter than comparable tile products.


Ceramic tiles are primarily used for stone, brick, and wooden buildings and have excellent sound and heat insulating capabilities, as well as being fireproof! Ceramic tiles are available in flat, grooved and undulating form and can come in many colours from a glazing effect.


Concrete tiles are made of cement mortar that is coloured by iron oxide (which has no negative effects on the body or environment) and is therefore considered an eco-friendly roofing material! These heavy tiles are durable, frost resistant and have excellent heart and sound insulation properties.


Composite tiles are a new roofing material that has a multiple layer structure, including steel sheets that are coated with weather resistant chemicals and polymers. These durable tiles are great for allowing proper drainage due to their interlocking system and are fire resistant.
