Love Your Roof

“Compromise Makes a Good Umbrella, But a Poor Roof” James Russel Lowell

A Revolution in Renovation: Raising the Standards Of Roofing in Calgary

At AKRoN Roofing, we apply the same quality standards of application on an asphalt garage reroofing as we do to a high-end country estate. For every project, we are committed to using materials that we believe are the best products available on the market for Alberta's harsh climate, from the breathable synthetic underlayment to the shingles themselves. We offer concrete tile maintenance, rubber, asphalt and metal roofing, eavestrough, soffit, fascia services and more. On this page, you can learn more about our preferred products and the reasons we promote them. If you still have questions, or would like to get started on your next roofing project, contact us today.

We are a proud and independent sales and installation company. We are not affiliated with, sponsored by or under the influence of any manufacturers or distributors of the products we promote. We simply promote products that we believe are best suited for Calgary's harsh weather systems. Our products include:

 GAF

GAF is the oldest roofing manufacturer in North America and has been rated #1 in shingle quality by Home Builders for 10 out of the last 12 years.

Euroshield® boasts approximately 70% recycled tire rubber and approximately 95% total recycled content.

Inc.'s Euroshield® products here.

Choose from Harvest Shake, Beaumont Shake, Granville Slate, Vermont Slate, Ranchlands Shake (Thick), or Rundle Slate (Thick).

 Firestone and Johns Manville

TPO is AKRoN Roofing’s preferred product for low-slope/flat roofing. Tar and gravel requires very costly fire insurance and can be extremely dangerous. Temperature fluctuations in Alberta’s weather can cause cracking which leads to leak problems. TPO membrane is a thermoplastic polyolefin and designed to withstand extreme weather exposure, perfect for Alberta’s climate. TPO single-ply membranes create cool roof reflectivity, offer flexibility, UV resistance and overall weather protection.

For more information about Firestone's Ultraply TPO you can find here.

 Ventilation

We recommend Ventilation Maximum® for superior ventilation on buildings with a pitch less than 7/12. These units have no moving parts and stand above snow-loads. For our Southern Alberta winter climate, this is very important for your attic! The VMAX-303-12 and the VMAX-301-12 are two superior choices over turtle vents or turbines.


Another excellent choice for ventilating your attic is the Canada Go Green 4 Seasons Pro solar vents. These vents each pull 500 square feet of excess heat, moisture and humidity from the attic with a solar-powered fan.

 Skylights

We're certified VELUX Skylight installers. For over 75 years VELUX has been dedicated to producing skylights that are synonymous with quality and reliability. Our most common skylight installations are a Fixed Curb Mount and a Deckmount Skylight. VELUX laminated glass comes with a 10 year hail warranty. Read more about VELUX skylights and glass options here.

 Sentinel Solar Powered Roof Pumps

The Roof Sentinel Solar Powered Roof Pump removes ponding water from most flat roofs, any time of day or night, rain or shine. Contact us today to find out how to rent one of these units for your property.

Testimonials

Efficient and Respectful

“AKRON Roofing did our roof three years ago and we were very pleased with the quality of the work and the quality of the personnel.

Our current experience was a result of hail damage. Again from our first call to have the roof looked at till the job was done we felt that our home was in great hands.
The job site was always kept clean and the personnel were efficient and respectful.”

Professional, Caring and Helpful

“AKRoN Roofing did an outstanding job on my new roof! It was in need of replacement. Rodney from the start was professional, caring and helpful. He measured the roof and noted any improvements that would benefit me, and also the damage that I had. Rod came prepared with samples of the shingles they offer and I compared them for the colour perfect for my new roof. He assured me that the roofing job would be clean and quick, and it was. AKRoN Roofing crewmen cleaned up the job site each day and left my yard in perfect order each night. My roof is beautiful and my experience couldn't be better. I would recommend AKRoN Roofing and Rodney to anyone.”

Would Absolutely Recommend

“After 14 years our roof was pretty beat up. We had a recommendation from a neighbour for AKRoN Roofing so had them put to have a look. The quoting process was very quick. They came out and took a few pictures and loaded it into an app and spit out an image and quote. Their crew was here on time and worked hard throughout the day and had us done by early evening. 1 day start to finish on a front attached garage 2 storey single family home! That was amazing! And the thoroughly cleaned all around the house. Put patio furniture and bbq back in place. Could not be happier with the experience! Would absolutely recommend.”
