Call for a free roof consultation; ask to see our colour selection chart. Steel Metal roofing is a very economical roofing material because it can be the last roof you need to buy & requires little to no maintenance.
Metal is a preferred roofing material across Canada due to the various harsh weather systems. Since metal reflects 70% of the sun’s energy, heat retention is minimized and the home is cooler in the summer.
Snap-Lock Metal Roofing is ideal for replacing Cedar roofs & low slope tar and gravel roofs and is especially effective in highly forested areas.
Fiberglass Asphalt Shingles
This includes being kept free from debris, in order to live out an expected 15 to 20 years.
Asphalt fibreglass shingle roofs deteriorate from the coloured granules dislodging and falling into the gutter and from the asphalt drying out.
This aging process can be stopped by keeping the granules bonded on the shingle and coating the asphalt with Dr. Shields Canadian Roof Armor.
When you are considering a new fibreglass shingle roof, don’t just re-roof & settle for another 15 to 20 years of shingle life. Consider coating your new roof and receive a longer warranty period covering the durability your roof. Call for an over the phone roof consultation with the roof dr. today.

The Great Canadian Roof Doctor offers slate roofing services throughout the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island and the Thompson Okanagan.
A slate roof will help reduce your environmental footprint. Slate is an all natural material, contributing no toxic substances to the environment. Capable of outlasting the life of your home, slate can also be recycled. Roofing waste accounts for more than 5% of the total waste sent to landfills across the nation every year. It’s easy to see the positive environmental impacts of installing a roof that is going to last 150 years or more.
The weight of slate shingle roofing tile ranges between 800 and 1,000 pounds per square (8 – 10 pounds per square foot). Before investing in slate roofing, you’ll need to have your home evaluated from a structural standpoint to make sure it can take the weight.
If the price tag of real stone slate roofing shingles is out of the budget, there are alternative with synthetic or faux slate roofing. The imitation stylings of these synthetic slate shingles might be perfect for your home if you want the slate roofing design without the price tag or without having to restructure for natural slates heavy footprint.
