    Asphalt Shingles: An Economical Roofing Choice for Rental Properties

    As a rental property owner in Alberta you want to ensure the investment, maintenance, and quality of your home. So, when you are looking for Roofing Companies in Edmonton – Jayson Global Roofing is your one-stop-shop roofing contractor, that offers a variety of roofing options like the IKO Cambridge shingle.


    Shingle Types


    Asphalt shingles cut into squares with surface granules were first used in the early 1900’s. These granules can provide colours which serve both aesthetic value and technical purpose like maintaining temperature and blocking ultraviolet light. Newer generation asphalt shingles use fibreglass bases removing asbestos and providing durability in all types of weather and fireproofing. There are architectural asphalt shingles and traditional 3-tab shingles. Although 3-tab is generally used for lower cost material and installation, this type of roofing doesn’t tend to last more than 20 years while architectural shingles are thicker, vary in shape and size, offer more aesthetic appeal, and tend to last longer.

    IKO Shingles

    IKO offers a variety of four collections: Premium, Performance, Architectural, and Traditional for you to choose from. Jayson Global Roofing offers all of IKO’s collection that fits your budget. The Architectural collection is IKO’s most popular collection amongst property owners and roofing companies in Edmonton. IKO Cambridge asphalt shingles are laminated, use straight cuts, and are engineered to withstand elements like wind and sun making them built to last. These shingles come in a variety of colours depending on your market; from cool greens to warm reds or your traditional browns and blacks. These asphalt shingles also come in an “advantage” size which allow roofing companies to install them at a quicker rate and they’ll provide a high-end, designer look.

    Reliable Roofing Companies

    Owning a rental property can offer both, steady income and the ability to claim eligible expenses. An asphalt shingle roof can survive the test of weather and time from anywhere between 15-30 years. If you’re repairing your roof or making a capital investment by upgrading your property value, making a good decision about your roofing requires thought of many factors like the short and long-term costs, design, up-keep, and a trustable source to do the job. Making a smart, and responsible choice when selecting a roofing company in Edmonton is easy to do when you choose a roofing contractor like Jayson Global Roofing.
