What are Shingles?

Shingles are by far the most popular product in the Canadian residential roofing market. They can be reinforced with either organic or fibre glass materials. Today they are reinforced with fibreglass mat or an organic material such as paper, wood fibre etc. and range in durability / life expectancy, from 20 to 30 years for the ordinary (three tab) shingle. Great improvements to the asphalt shingle have been made, resulting in a more durable product known as laminated shingles. Laminate shingles are also known as “dimensional” and “architectural” shingles. Laminate shingles are also made of asphalt but differ from the “three tab” shingle in design. They were designed to add character, color and depth to the roof aesthetics. They are made of multiple staggered layers of material, with a range in durability, typically 30 to 50 years. Laminate shingles are thicker and heavier than “three tab” shingles thus are more resistant to wind. From a distance, some of the high grade (high quality) laminated shingles have the look of an expensive slate or shake material, by incorporating angled or rounded tabs, shadow lines and variant color patterns.

Organic and fibreglass asphalt shingles are one of today’s most popular residential roofing products. High quality and cost effectiveness make asphalt shingles a natural choice for many homeowners.

No matter what the budget is for your roofing project, there is a quality asphalt shingle to fit your needs. The following is a breakdown of the general categories of asphalt shingles:

Three-Tan Shingles

This very economical asphalt and fibreglass shingle product gets its name because there are three “tabs” on each shingle. The shingles are typically three feet long, installed with a 5 1/2″ exposure, and weigh approximately 240 pounds per 100 square feet. Three-Tab shingles are available in a wide range of colors and carry manufacturer warranties of 25 and 30 years.

Laminate Shingles

Also commonly referred to as an architectural or dimensional asphalt shingle, this product adds an element of distinction to any home. Laminate shingles are slightly more expensive than Three-Tab shingles. The shingles are typically three feet long, installed with a 5 1/2″ exposure, and weigh approximately 250 – 365 pounds per 100 square feet. Available in a wide range of colors and manufacturer warranties of up to 40 years, laminate shingles are currently the most popular trend in residential roofing.

Often designed to look like natural slate, premium asphalt shingles are the most expensive product in the asphalt/fibreglass category. Usually carrying limited lifetime warranties from the manufacturer, these shingles can weigh in excess of 400 pounds per 100 square feet. Many different colors and styles are available to suit any home.

Testimonials

  • Olympia Tile & Stone office and flagship showroom facility was covered with an aging and deteriorating roofing system, and the leaks had begun to disrupt daily business operations. Olympia needed an immediate fix. According to Guycan’s Roof Consultant “with a built-up system, we would have needed to postpone the project until spring when the snow and ice melts. Olympia Tile could not afford to wait because the current roof wouldn’t withstand another winter season. Leaks were already causing damage to their product inventory. Despite challenging weather conditions, including cold temperatures, high winds and record snowfall; Guycan was able to install the Duro-Last roofing system in 28 working days. Guycan has installed another Duro-Last roofing system at an Olympia showroom location in Ottawa (10,000 square feet) and are working on other locations for Olympia.

  • Kleen-Flo Tumbler Industries Limited had a roof that was over 30 years old, and needed constant repair to keep from leaking. Guycan’s repair service was able to contain the leaks, and keep the problem from worsening. Sukhdev Mann was so impressed by the prompt service; he decided to hire Guycan for the 85,000 sq.ft. re-roofing project. Guycan was able to install the Duro-Last membrane in 4 weeks with no disruption to Kleen-Flo’s daily operations. Sukhdev was impressed not only by the workmanship Guycan was providing, but also by the unique relationship he was able to build with Guycan owners Randy and Jason Deonarain. When it was time for Kleen-Flo to install solar panels, Guycan was the only solution.
