Short-term roofing is a relatively new term for many Calgary AB homeowners. Truthfully, most of us want to have a roof that lasts for an extended period. However, short-term roofing has its own set of advantages for homeowners and property owners who have different home plans.

Rental Property Owners

It’s easier to use affordable but high-quality asphalt shingles from Certainteed for rental property owners. While it’s money-saving to use a standing seam metal roof that can last for up to a century and requires minimal maintenance, it’s challenging to keep track of your roof’s condition after a tenant packs up and a new one moves in.

With a 30-year estimated lifespan, you can make a comfortable decision to remove and replace it with a new set of asphalt shingles. In doing so, you can perk up your rental prices with proper justification: the new, protective, and capable roof, and top-tier labor from greatly-dependable roofing companies in Calgary, AB.

Homeowners With Indefinite Plans of Staying in Calgary AB

It’s great that you have a property in Calgary, AB. However, some homeowners own the property and may have plans to move out to other areas of the country someday. If you’re staying for a short while in Calgary AB, it pays to have a roof that won’t last a lifetime to help you save some costs.

Truthfully, asphalt shingle roofs can do so much for any home. Just check out its advantages as Brian Dawson Roofing lists below.

1. Appearance

The color of your roof should provide a contrast from the rest of the exterior of your home.  A brown roof would look very boring with brown siding. Asphalt shingles are available in many colors to complement the style and color scheme of your home.

An asphalt roof color should pick up tones in window shutters, the front door or accent trim to tie  the exterior look of a home together. It can even mimic cedarwood or slate roofing if that’s the look you’re going for.

2. ​Variety

Due to the numerous asphalt shingle shapes available, the appearance of an asphalt roof can be presented in many different ways. This offers a unique appearance to a roof, making it unique from the other homes in your neighborhood.

You can choose a flat, uniform look with long, rectangular, asphalt shingles. Or install shingles that overlap creating a 3-D effect. Natural-looking, rough-edged shingles are also an option.

3. Affordability

Asphalt roofing systems are very cost-effective.  It is a cost-effective choice for homeowners who are remodeling their roofs or building a new home.  Asphalt roofing is less expensive than many other roofing materials. Consult an asphalt roofing professional for installation. Most roofing contractors (like Brian Dawson Roofing) offer free estimates and flexible payment options.

4. Easy Maintenance & Adaptability

Asphalt roofs are easy for homeowners to maintain.  If an asphalt roof gets damaged, repairing them is easier than with other roofing materials. Proper maintenance of an asphalt roof will prolong its use for years.  Another great reason to choose asphalt roofing is that it can work well on steep or angled roofs. (Continued)
