Roofing Calgary - Products offered by Aaron Roofing & Skylights Ltd.

A very common problem was the fish-mouthing, warping, curling, clawing, and extreme granular loss of the organic 3-tab, self-sealing shingles.

This problem is now rectified with the perfection of the fiberglass laminate self-seal shingle. All of the major shingle manufacturers offer this product.

This shingle offers more hail protection due to the laminations, and the sealant is superior which also offers better protection from wind damage.

Another common problem is associated with wind turbines:
  • Sometimes the ball bearings begin to squeak, or they actually stop functioning;
  • The ball will come right off, leaving the attic exposed to the elements;
  • The unit will become unbalanced, causing the rotating ball to rub against the elbow.

There is now available a variety of vents which offer similar open venting, but no moving parts.

The complimentary product to vented soffit, but meant for the peak-of-the-roof opening, is Ridge Venting.

The combination of these two products enables the attic to have even and continuous soffit-to-peak air flow, keeping attic temperatures more ideal.

In the heat of the summer if the attic is cooler then the house will be cooler; conversely, in the winter the attic won't hold the coldest night temperatures.

Eaves and Rakes metal edging protects the wood sheeting deck from water and ice backup that can cause deck rot or deterioration

The combination of metal edging and water and ice membrane complete underlayment will keep the deck dry for the life of the roof.

Finally, an asphalt shingle roofing product that will give your home a distinctive look with great curb appeal is Raised Ridge Capping.

This product can also be installed going up the gable-ends on a two-sided roof.

The only disadvantage that I'm aware of with this product is that holes can be punched through the caps if there is a very severe hail storm; but, in that case you would most likely have damage to the rest of the roof, and the entire roof would have to be replaced. If you also have an elastomeric underlayment your home would be protected!
