RESIDENTIAL ROOFING PRODUCTS
Residential Roofing Products
Residential Roofing components include those products needed to install a roofing system. Residential roofing is usually installed on a home, garage or other buildings in residential neighbourhoods. Residential roofing products are usually used on slopes above 3/12. Products can include roofing shingles, underlay and accessories such as underlays, vents, and some flashings.
CertainTeed manufactures Premium quality asphalt shingles in many styles and colors for residential applications. Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing product used in the residential market. There are three major categories of roofing shingles including basic architectural roofing shingles, premium dimensional roofing shingles and designer shingles.
Architectural shingles are the most cost effective of residential roofing products available to homeowners and roofing contractors. They are laminated roofing shingles that are generally designed to look like shake or slate.
Premium dimensional shingles are usually heavier weight than strip roofing shingles. They are manufactured as two-layered products or multi-layered in the case of CertainTeed’s tri-laminate technology. CertainTeed manufactures the Landmark® Series Roofing Shingle as an example of a premium dimensional roofing shingle
Premium designer roofing shingles are typically laminated and much thicker than the dimensional shingles. Premium designer shingles provide enhanced roof aesthetics and an increased wow factor and curb appeal. CertainTeed manufactures Grand Manor®, Presidential Shake® TL, and Carriage House®.
Roofing underlayment are engineered for use on residential roof decks as a water-resistant layer beneath shingles or other sloped roofing products. CertainTeed manufactures the utility grade felt underlayments ShingleFelt® 30 and the fiber glass-reinforced felt underlayment Roofers’ Select®. They also market a high performance premium synthetic underlayment called DiamondDeck®. When Waterproofing shingle underlayments are installed properly they prevent leaks from ice damming and wind-driven rain in vulnerable areas of your roof. CertainTeed manufactures the product WinterGuard®, which is a granulated peel and stick premium roofing underlay.
Hip and Ridge shingles are used to finish the hips and ridges of a residential roof. Where two planes meet on the roof at different angles we need to add a hip and ridge shingle to finish it off. The hip and ridge shingles carry the same warranty as the shingles they are applied over. There are many options designed to complement the appearance of the roofing shingles while providing the same or superior level of protection and durability. CertainTeed manufactures hip and ridge accessories under the product names ShadowRidge® and Mountain Ridge®.
Starter shingles save application time. At the eave of the roof below the first row of shingles is where the starter shingles go, this prevents water from hitting the underlay when water passes through over the ends of the shingles. Starter shingles are designed to work specifically with different styles of shingles for consistent appearance and performance, mismatching starter shingles with different products than they were designed for is not recommended. CertainTeed manufactures starter shingles under the product names Swiftstart® to be used with the Landmark® series and High Performance Starter to be used with Grand Manor®, Highland Slate® and Hatteras® shingles.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY?
"Southern Roofing completed the metal roof project for Tuscany Residents Association. They completed the project on time and budget and used quality materials. The site was cleaned up after the work was completed and were available for support services on short notice. Great job !!"
"We had our shingles and vent hoods replaced a few months ago and i couldn't be happier!! The guys were friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. They finished the work very quickly and kept us informed every step of the way. When they were done they made sure that the entire area around our house was free of debris, even going over the lawn with a magnet. The pricing was very competitive and I will absolutely recommend them to friends and family. I would use them in the future without hesitation."
We hired Southern Roofing and Waterproofing based off their great track record of reviews online and they did not disappoint during our roof replacement. They were professional, courteous and the pride they took in their workmanship and reputation was very evident. Cleanup was done well and they used quality materials. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in Calgary looking for a new roof.
