Architectural Shingles
MOST POPULAR shingle style.

Highlander® NEX®
MOST ECONOMICAL architectural shingle. Class 2 impact rating.

MOST POPULAR architectural shingle. Slightly thicker than our Highlander® NEX® shingle. Class 3 impact rating (second highest rating possible).

Legacy® Scotchgard™
HIGHEST PERFORMING architectural shingle. Slightly thicker than our Vista® shingle. Class 4 impact rating (highest rating possible), and granules that help reduce algae streaks.

Ecoasis® NEX®
MOST SOLAR REFLECTIVE architectural shingle. Built on the same platform as our Highlander® NEX® shingle line. Class 2 impact rating, and complies with California Energy Code (CEC) Title 24, Part 6 Cool Roof Requirements.

Designer Shingles
MOST DIMENSIONAL shingle style.

Designer shingles feature a dual-layer construction formed in a cedar shake pattern. They are larger, heavier, and stronger than architectural shingles for maximum weather performance and heightened roof dimension for enhanced curb appeal.

Windsor® Scotchgard™
HIGHEST PERFORMING shingle overall. Appreciably thicker than our Legacy® architectural shingle line. Class 4 impact rating (highest rating possible), and granules that help reduce algae streaks (our highest algae protection).

3-Tab Shingles: MOST ECONOMICAL shingle style.

3-Tab shingles are the most traditional, and most economical. They consist of a single asphalt layer. As a result, they lay flat, thus lack the roof dimension of architectural and designer shingles, but still offering good roof protection.

Dura-Seal™ AR
MOST ECONOMICAL shingle. Class 4 impact rating (highest impact rating possible), with minimal roof dimension, and granules that help reduce algae streaks.

Niko was recommended by some of the people in my community when we were looking at getting out roof re-shingled. I sought out several quotes, and Niko’s was competitive, and has an excellent reputation in Calgary. Niko was quick to follow up with a date they could start and was only delayed one day because of weather. Vlad the owner communicated through email and text which was really helpful. The whole roof took one day with his team, and everything was done and cleaned up by 5:00pm. I was very impressed. The roof looks great, I loved the varied shingle selection, so was able to pick a colour and design that looks great. Overall, very happy with our decision to go with this company.

Excellent service, Vlad and his team repaired the storm damage to my siding, gutters and roof with an upgrade to class 4 shingles. The task is easy enough to do on my own however both his and his team’s professionalism and competitiveness is what sold me to use his service. We had reached out to Vlad after everyone on the street signed with the door to door roofers. Our work was done weeks earlier then everyone else and in one day. Not only will I use you going forward for repairs and recommend you but I will also use your services on my commercial jobs. Thanks Niko Roofing !

Vlad and his crew were professional and responsible. They repaired a leak, installed a rook, and installed two sun tunnels in short order. It looks great and we are very happy with the result!

Just had our very large roof done in NW Calgary. Vlad was great to deal with!! had a quote on the spot then a PDF copy was sent to me later. I did not even bother obtaining any other quotes based on my first interaction. Material was ordered and dropped off in a timely manner. Crew showed up at 7:30 in the morning and started work right away. The crew had our roof done in one day (did not think this would be possible) site left immaculate and the all the guys were very nice and courteous.
