Common for residential homes, sloped roofing is intended to reduce the wear of UV rays, while providing a steep enough slope to allow water and snow to slide off. This style of roofing has been a popular choice for decades, as there are many benefits to its design for the homeowner. The steepness of your roof effects it’s performance. Generally, a steeper roof offers better runoff for precipitation, leaves, and other debris.
Sloped roofs are generally both more durable and more attractive than their flat counterparts. Determining which to use is relatively simple, given that most homeowners are limited to the choice that suits their home’s construction.

- Can withstand winds of up to 177km/h (110mph)
- Most receive a Class A fire rating due to the fire resistance of the reinforcement mat
Rubber roofs are manufactured from recycled rubber right here in Calgary. They are an incredibly durable product and have a lifespan of up to 75 years. They are available in several of colours and have an outward appearance that closely matches natural shakes or slate and are much lighter than comparable tile products.
Composite roof materials are constructed from various materials in layers like laminate floors. They are lightweight and extremely durable. Composite roofs are available in a virtually unlimited variety of profiles and colours to match any home or style.
Metal roofs consist of various designs of manufactured metal panels. There are basically two types of metal roofs defined by the size of the panels. They come in large prefab panels that are field cut to fit your home or smaller shingle sized interlocking panels that are fitted to your home. They are installed over a waterproof underlay and offer extreme durability, long lifespan and excellent water and snow shedding properties. In our environment special underlays and installation techniques are necessary to prevent leaking due to ice damming.
Some benefits of Metal roofing:
- Wide variety of colours and profiles
- Lifetime warranty available
- Extreme wind resistance
- Best fire resistance, most receive a Class A fire rating
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.
Cedar/Treated Pine Roofs
Cedar or treated pine roofs are very common in many neighborhoods in and around Calgary. They offer effective protection against precipitation, wind, and hail damage and are often specified in architectural controls for more upscale neighborhoods. Claw Roofing Specialists does not recommend the use of Cedar or treated pine roofs in Calgary as our dry environment negatively effects the lifespan of the product. The lack of humidity and precipitation in Calgary results in greater splitting of wooden shakes necessitating much higher maintenance costs long term (split shakes need to be replaced yearly) and much reduced roof system lifespans.
