Choosing the right roofing material


Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are a popular choice for residential properties. Prairie Home Roofing carries a modern version, reinforced with a fibreglass core for increased durability.


They’re affordable. Whereas other materials come with a big price tag, asphalt shingles are economical and dramatically reduce the cost of a new roof.

They come in a wide range of colours, styles, and shapes. This versatility means they can complement any home. Plus, asphalt shingles increase your home’s curb appeal and make it look more attractive to potential buyers.

They’re easy to repair. In the event of damage, individual tiles can be replaced. So you don’t need a whole new roof.


They’re less durable. This is because cheaper versions are vulnerable to high winds, hail storms, mould, and are prone to cracking. However, a well-maintained asphalt shingle roof has a lifespan of around 20 years.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is a great option for residential homes, agricultural buildings, and commercial properties.


It’s very durable. Metal roofing can withstand extreme weather, high winds, and fire. However, hail storms can cause cosmetic damage even though it shouldn’t compromise the integrity of your roof.

It’s long-lasting. Metal roofs made from steel, standing seam, or aluminum last up to 50 years. Many say a metal roof is the last roof you’ll ever buy! Learn more about standing seam metal roofs.


Metal roofing is more expensive. The cost of the material is greater than with asphalt shingles or rubber roofs. However, while you pay more initially, the roof will last longer.

Some metal roofs can be louder than rubber or asphalt roofs. This isn’t necessarily a problem, and with most roofs unnoticeable, it is something to keep in mind.

Rubber Roofing

Rubber roofing is a relatively new technology ideal for residential and commercial buildings.


It’s easy to repair and maintain. Any repairs or replacements can be done easily and quickly, saving time and money.

It’s durable. Rubber roofs are resistant to surface wear, such as splitting, curling, and cracking. Additionally, it holds up well against high winds, hail, and mould.

It’s environmentally friendly. This is because the rubber is typically repurposed from old tires. Furthermore, rubber roofing is a fantastic insulator, saving you money on energy bills.


It’s far more expensive than asphalt shingles. However, rubber roofing is more energy-efficient, saving you money in the long term.

It’s not as durable as metal roofing when it comes to extreme weather.
