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 right expertise to complete your residential sloped roofing repair or replacement in Calgary.
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 its own unique characteristics, which make them all great choices for our Calgary climate.
Asphalt shingles are the most common types of roof shingles, primarily because they’re the most economic 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 a number of looks and are a cost-effective option when looking to have your roof replaced. There are several cuts and styles that will give your home a unique look without breaking the bank. GAF roofing materials includes their Timberline range of products and a designer line of asphalt shingles.
When we install a roofing system, we provide all necessary elements to ensure proper function and life expectancy for your home. This includes metal drip flashing which are always used on eave ends; the diverter flashing installed when step flashing runs to eave end; ice and water shield installed on eave ends and valleys; proper weaving of all flashings and vents and exposed metal valleys to limit shingle damage.
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 and without re-engineering you roof trusses. Rubber shingles are also more durable then asphalt and with many are more beautiful. One of the types of rubber roofing our Calgary contractors work with is Euroshield.
Euroshield offers a number of different looks suitable for every home style. This includes slate style shingles or a shake style shingle. 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’re environmentally friendly, 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. This will protect your home from water getting into the attic and cost roof replacement or repair costs down the road. Standing seams also shed snow better than any other product. This makes it a top choice in our Calgary climate where we often see hail, and occasionally snow, in the summer.
Steel roofing comes in variety of gauges, colours and coatings. Because of this you can have a unique tailored to your home, making it standout. 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.
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. It instead allows it to melt or fall off in smaller amounts, protecting anyone walking close to your home and helping 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.”
