At AKRoN Roofing, we apply the same quality standards of application on an asphalt garage re-roof 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. 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.

"Because of GAF’s stringent standards, only 3% of all roofing contractors have qualified as Master Elite® contractors!
Choosing a GAF Master Elite® contractor is your assurance that you’ll be dealing with a quality, reputable, and dependable professional contractor — not some “fly-by-nighter.” (-from GAF.ca)
We install GAF’s Timberline HD fiberglass asphalt shingle, a high performance shingle with 130 mph / 209 km/h wind rating. Also , we recommend the ArmorShield II, GAF's Class 4 impact resistant SBS shingle, an excellent choice to protect your home from hail.
Malarkey’s Laminate SBS shingles are an ideal option for Alberta home owners. These shingles have a base layer of fibreglass mat coated with SBS modified rubber asphalt. The Malarkey Legacy boasts a Class 4 impact resistance, the highest rating possible against extreme weather. Malarkey also offers warranties that suit AKRoN Roofing’s ten-year workmanship warranty.
“With Malarkey Roofing Products you get exactly what you need; a dependable lasting warranty, unmatched technical acumen, and customer service that sets the standard. All of this means less rework and less downtime, giving you more flexibility to do what you do best. Since 1956 we’ve prided ourselves on doing the right things, like reinventing the shingle (The Zone patent), going green, and being sustainable since 1985. Building quality relationships and lasting products, it’s just what we do.” (Taken from www.malarkeyroofing.com)

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. For more information please visit the Firestone website.
We recommend Ventilation Maximum® for superior ventilation on low-slope buildings. One unit can replace three 12′ or two 14′ turbines.
