Nova Shield -VS- Our Competitors
Licensed & Insured
Our roofers are Fully Trained, Insured, Licensed and Registered in Alberta.
Not all the companies are what they say, so don't rush and do your research first.
Our Advanced Technics will provide the most accurate measurements of your roof.
Most companies estimate approximately the size of the roof, forcing you to overpay.
We only use selected materials, including roof underlayment and ice and water shield.
If a company quote the project too low per sq. ft., they might use low quality products.
Extreme Weather Protection
We use 6 nails per shingle to make sure your roof will withstand hail & strong winds.
Usually, 4 nails per shingle is the standard, but it won't be enough against strong winds.

There are 5 different types of residential roofing you can choose from. These types are asphalt shingles, slate shingles, wood shakes and cedar shingles, metal roofing, and ceramic tiles. Asphalt shingles are the most commonly used roofing material because they are economical, easy to install, durable, and come in a wide variety of styles and colours. Slate shingles are a sophisticated and upscale roofing material made from concrete, and provide your home with resistance to fire and rot, and have a life expectancy of 100 years. Cedar shake roofs are composed of wood shingles that are made from split logs. Cedar roofs are incredibly eco-friendly, natural, durable, provide UV resistance, and have a fire-resistant coating. Metal roofing shingles are low maintenance, durable, lightweight, and environmentally friendly, and they have a lifespan of 50+ years. Ceramic tile shingles are made from baking clay and are durable, resistant to fading, fireproof, and can last between 50 to 70 years.
There are multiple different signs to look out for when it comes to identifying a bad roof. Missing or damaged shingles, stains, lack of uniformity, missing underlayment, missing drip edge, and hardware mistakes are all signs of a bad roof. To avoid getting a bad roof, always go to a professional and experienced roofer to get the job done. Nova Shield is a professional roofing company that can take care of all your roofing needs.
There are a couple of things you can do to prevent premature deterioration of your roof. You should always schedule routine roof inspections. At the very least you should schedule roof inspections at least once a year and perform preventive maintenance when needed. This will help ensure your roof stays in its best condition and prolong its life. Other important things to do to prevent deterioration is to ensure you have proper attic insulation and ventilation, clean out any debris build up such as leaves, cut and trim overhanging tree branches, always address any gutter problems and clogs, and always fix active leaks as soon as you notice them.
Every single roof is different, so there is no exact price to be said. However, the average cost to reshingle an asphalt shingle roof is between $5400 and $9000. When determining the price of your roofing replacement, roofers consider a couple factors including old shingle removal, style, shape, material, and extras on your roof that they may need to work around.
The purpose of your gutters is to carry water away from your home. But when your gutters are clogged, this water has no place to go, so instead, your gutters completely fill. Each gallon of water weighs about 8 pounds, and all that extra weight being stuck in your gutters can cause them to bend or tear away from the roof. Clogged gutters also create water leaks inside of your home. Water that gets trapped in the gutters can rot the wooden fascia boards that they are mounted to, allowing moisture inside of your home. As well, if you don’t have a waterproofed basement, the water that pours down your foundation can lead to a damp basement. This is caused by water seeping through your basement’s porous walls and floor. Insect infestations can also be caused by clogged gutters. The trapped and pooled water in your gutters are the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes, and damp mud and leaves are a great place for bees and wasps to build their nests. Water can cause mold and water damage, so the standing water inside of your gutters overtime can cause the wood to rot and mold to develop inside of your roof, attic, and walls of your home. Not only can all this damage occur, but you can also shorten the lifespan of your roof. When your gutters are clogged and your roof sustains damage every time it rains, the lifespan of your roof gets shorter and shorter.
Heavy snow can be dangerous to your asphalt roof and cause roof damage. It can accumulate and build up well over the roof’s ability to support them. When it piles up on your roof and then sits there for a long time, it can cause a bowed ceiling, creaks, cracks above your windows and doors, and finally, roof-collapse.
You can get rid of holes in your roof with a roof repair. However, if the hole is too large and has caused severe damage to the roof, you may require a roof replacement. Most holes can be removed with roof repair. Never try to repair the hole on your own or climb onto your roof, as this can be very dangerous if you are not an experienced roof contractor. If you have holes in your roof, contact a professional roofing company like Nova Shield to get the job done correctly and safely.
One of the worst types of roof damage over the winter can result from ice dams. Ice dams are thick bands of ice that form on the edges of your roof during the winter. These dams prevent water from running off your roof, and they can cause significant damage to your home. These dams can prevent melted water from running off your roof, causing it to pool on the roof, where it can cause leaks. As well, falling icicles can pull down the gutters or other parts of your roof, and hanging icicles can be extremely heavy, which can cause rotting. If you have existing cracks or flaws in your roof, cold weather can make them much worse, because if water gets into those cracks, it could freeze and expand the cracks. The last thing you need to be careful about is water that freezes and melts repeatedly in a short period of time. It can create even bigger problems that may require you to replace your entire roof. If you find your roof has been damaged by ice and is in need of a repair, always call professional roofing contractors like Nova Shield to get the job done right.
