- Why Us
When it comes to selecting a residential roofing system for your home, you can never go wrong with using asphalt shingles. Asphalt shingles are one of the most common types of materials used in Ontario homes – providing a beautiful, affordable, and reliable roofing solution for any residence.
In addition to being cost-effective, durable, and easy to maintain, asphalt shingles also come in a variety of styles, textures, and colours; which could also be coated with laminate, stimulating the texture of natural materials such as cedar or slate.
The primary reason why asphalt shingles are so great is because of their durability in Canadian weather. Asphalt shingles are very well fit to Canadian climates; they are resistant to sunlight and sustain a wide range of temperatures common to Canada.
Asphalt shingles can be broadly divided into three major price categories summarized below.
Once you have decided on the type of shingle you would like to have installed, you’re then able to choose from a variety of textures and colours offered by asphalt shingle manufactures. These colours and textures easily mimic the look of slate, wood shakes, or even tiles. In addition, color choices are more varied than ever; ranging from gray to beige, reddish brown to dark brown; and different shades of blue and green.
Furthermore, shingle shapes also come in a range of designs; scalloped-edged tabs beautifully compliment Victorian architecture whereas square, slate-like shingles are a perfect fit for Colonial designed homes.
In order to maximize durability, it is recommended that asphalt shingles be used in homes with steeper slopes as water and ice can drain off more quickly, preventing damage. However, we understand that durability is influenced by climate, weather, and environmental factors which cause wear and tear – especially in a country like Canada! That is why we offer manufacturer warranties that range from 15 years to lifetime in some cases.

Limited ventilation is one of the most common problems associated with modern roofing systems. Without high levels of roof ventilation, you’ll be unable to achieve full airflow throughout your home. Read More
“Hi I am Christie MacInnes at 42 Wilgar Rd, and I needed a new roof. A friend did it about 10-15 years ago, and he said I needed a new roof. The shingles were coming off, so I started the process of looking for people, and I got Royal York Roofing’s name from a friend at swimming and I called for an estimate. They came the next day, right on time, the minute they said they would be here. Bruce walked me through the whole process.”
