Shingles That Suit Vancouver

Here in Vancouver, we pride ourselves on a sense of west coast style. Why not reflect this in our homes? Keeping our houses up to date is a great way to express our refined personal taste, while also adding value to our investment. So what kind of roofing is in style right now in Vancouver?

Cedar Shingles

Cedar Roofing will never go out of style here on the West Coast. No other material fits in better to our local landscape than Cedar, it instantly calls to mind our magnificent rainforests and wild surroundings. Cedar shakes contribute to the craftsman style of architecture, another trend that doesn’t go out of fashion. They are complemented by fine woodwork, natural tones, and rustic features. Cedar is also often a feature in modern west coast design, though. Here the clean lines and open concepts allow it to really stand out. Cedar is really a versatile roofing material and will always add curb appeal to your home.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are often the first choice for people considering a new roof. They are popular for our classic mid-century suburban homes because they reflect the simplicity of that era. The can also be used on our heritage Victorian homes because they won’t overpower the more elaborate decorations that often characterize these buildings. Asphalt shingles are available in all sorts of colours and styles, so you can usually find the right one to match your home, no matter what architectural type it is. The algae-resistance of asphalt shingles also adds to its popularity in our wet climate, and will add to your home’s value.

Vancouver BC is a pretty great place to live. People move here to enjoy our scenery and our culture, and want to live in homes that harmonize with that. Our homes exterior can reflect this, and become a real commodity.
