Choosing the Right Shingles for Your Roof

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are economical, available in a variety of colours and require very lite maintenance. Fiberglass shingles are sold in a wide range of sizes, styles and colours. Depending on the style and the slope of your home, the team at Vézina & Fils Roofers can help you to find the right type: architectural, traditional, fiberglass, etc.

Metal Shingles

A metal roof will last for a very long time, is recyclable and very lightweight. In addition, when properly insulated, metal shingles remain cooler in summer and warmer in winter. If you choose a metal shingle roof, you will never have to replace it during your lifetime! This makes your house very attractive to potential buyers if you decide to sell it. On the other hand, installation can be relatively arduous, which is why it is so important to work with an experienced company like Vézina & Fils Roofers.

Slate Shingles

Slate shingles are a natural, or noble, material. A roof covered with high-quality slate shingles will last 60 to 200 years. These shingles are recommended for slops of 6 to 12 inches or more. Slate is highly resistant and waterproof, and requires very lite maintenance. It is recommended that you contact an expert for installation or repairs in order to avoid damaging the shingles.

Cedar Shingles

Cedar shingles are a green choice that provide noise and thermal insulation. A roof covered with cedar shingles features a long lifespan, and adds a touch of beauty to any home. They are available in a wide range of natural colours and stains. We recommend the application of a Tung oil treatment in order to protect the wood.
