Asphalt shingles are the most economical alternative for roofing based on purchase price. Countless possibilities of colors and styles are available, not to mention the various possible guarantees for each product category. Asphalt shingles will fit any budget.
We mostly install the Timberline HD model from GAF.
These heavy-duty shingles consist of a solid fiberglass frame to increase its dimensional stability. Mineral ceramic coated granules are embedded in the carefully refined waterproof asphalt. Complex mixtures of colored granules and subtle lines create shaded reliefs recalling the aesthetics of cedar shingles.
Note: GAF shingles installed according to the standards (5 nails per sheet) will withstand wind gusts up to 175km/h. (6 nails per sheet : 209km/h!)
Limited lifetime garantee (GAF) : 50 years at 100%, transferable for 20 years.
GAF’s standard garantee (system plus) is always included in our estimates and includes the labor costs related to failures of the product, which is relatively new in the industry. Installation failures (unless otherwise specified in the contract) are in turn, guaranteed by Couvertures Montérégiennes for a basic period of 10 years.
