When you need a residential roof repair or a roof replacement, you want to know you’ve hired a team with the right experience. When you work with Soft Metal Experts, that’s exactly what you will get. We’ve invested in the right people so that we have the expertise to complete your residential sloped roofing repair or replacement.
Our Calgary roofing contractors offer three forms of roofing styles; rubber roofing, asphalt shingles, and metal roof panels. Each of these roofing materials comes with unique characteristics, which make them all excellent choices for our Calgary climate.
Asphalt shingles are the most common types of roof shingles, primarily because they’re the most economical product available. They also provide the best option if you’re looking to keep costs down while still maintaining look and function.
We believe in always working with the best roofing materials, which is why our Calgary contractors often use GAF asphalt shingles. GAF shingles come in several looks and are a cost-effective option for a roof replacement. Choose from several cuts and styles to give your home a unique look without breaking the bank. GAF roofing materials include their Timberline range of products and a designer line of asphalt shingles.
When we build a roofing system, we install all necessary elements to ensure proper function and life expectancy for your home. Those elements include metal drip flashing used on the eavestrough ends. The diverter flashing when step flashing runs to eave end. An ice and water shield on the eave ends and valleys. Proper weaving of all flashings and vents and exposed metal valleys to limit shingle damage.
- Limited lifetime warranty
- Flashed right
We are the Soft Metal Experts, so you know it will be flashed correctly!
If you’re looking to get away from asphalt or wooden roofing, have you considered rubber shingles? A rubber roof installation can be done safely, without re-engineering your roof trusses. Rubber shingles are also more durable than asphalt and have many options that can be more beautiful. One of the types of rubber roofing our Calgary contractors work with is Euroshield.
Euroshield offers several styles and looks suitable for every home, including slate-style shingles or a shake style shingles. Both come in a variety of colours. The cost of a rubber shingle can be higher than other traditional roofing systems. However, the value per dollar is also higher. Best of all, rubber shingles have a life expectancy of 50-60 years! Imagine never having to replace your shingles again.
Rubber shingles will give your roof a clean and beautiful look. They are also environmentally friendly because they are made with up to 95% recycled materials, and come with a limited lifetime warranty.

Metal roofing using steel panels is the ultimate option. Metal shingles have vertical seams, which means water is unable to dam and creep underneath the shingles. Those seams will protect your home from water getting into the attic and the cost of a roof replacement or repair down the road. Standing seams also shed snow better than any other product. These features make metal roofing a top choice in our Calgary climate where we often see hail, and occasionally snow, in the summer.
Steel roofing comes in a variety of gauges, colours, and coatings. Because of this, you can have a unique tailored to your home, making it stand out. Steel roofing shingles are the premium choice if you’re looking for the lowest maintenance product with the highest durability material. Though it can be a more expensive option, in the long run, you’ll spend less money on roof repairs.
We always recommend installing snow stops with any sloped steel roofing. The reason behind this is to help prevent snow and ice from falling dangerously from your roof. The snow stop means snow will melt or fall off in smaller amounts, protecting anyone walking close to your home. It is also another way to prevent future water damage to your sidewalks or foundation.

“The service was excellent along the follow up to make sure we were happy with the workmanship. I had two of my rental units refitted with new gutter and soffit systems and was very pleased with the workmanship. I have recommended Tim ( the owner) to a number of my friends because of his honesty and personal follow up to ensure we had no issues.”
