It’s not what most homeowners in Calgary AB want to hear: trusting your local manufacturers, even if their products are investments, is better than using untested and unproven ones.

We’ve received numerous questions regarding using unfamiliar roofing brands whose material seems questionable to us. Additionally, most homeowners have yet to touch or see the physical appearance of these internet-sold roofing materials.

When you work with local roofing manufacturers, such as Certainteed, you invest in roofs that last for decades. Additionally, these companies can back their statements with extensive stress tests and detail-oriented manufacturing practices.

Truthfully, you can use online-sold roofing materials if you intend to do DIY on your shed. However, tampering with the high-quality roofing your home currently has can disqualify you from comprehensive roofing warranties and insurance policies. While the unbranded asphalt shingle bundle you used seemed to work, your insurer might render your policy void or unusable.

Additionally, using unbranded asphalt shingles, you won’t find a dependable roofing contractor to install it for you. The best roofing contractors in Calgary AB have certifications from local, respected brands. For example, No Payne Roofing works with Certainteed to provide the best installations that guarantee long-term lifespan for your new asphalt shingle roof.

RJ Turner Remodeling has a great post about why Certainteed, a local brand, is one of the best for your home. Read more about it below.
