Shingle roofs are the most popular option in Calgary, but wood shingles are being phased out due to their flammability. Alpine Exteriors offers shake, fibreglass asphalt, and slate shingles and uses a premium underlay of plastic instead of metal to ensure longevity. Fibreglass shingles are the new shake as they are lightweight, fire resistant, durable, and last an average of 25 years longer than other shingle types. Slate are also extremely durable, but come with a much higher cost. Alpine Exteriors always does an in-depth assessment to ensure you get the right shingle.
