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.

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.

We had Niko Roofing install a new roof. From initial contact to finish, it was a great experience. Pricing is very reasonable and their service is great. Vlad and Max are both knowledgable, easy to communicate with and very responsive. The staff are super respectful, hardworking and efficient - they finished installing ours and our neighbours roof in two days, minimally affecting our day to day lives. They also repaired a few gutters which was just so easy and convenient. Definitely very pleased with the job and would recommend Niko Roofing to all!

Roofing, Siding and Eavestrough. Top notch Professionals! Niko Roofing took over the insurance claim to replace the roof, siding and eavestrough. We also upgraded our siding and Vlad gave us a great price. Incredible work and service received by Niko Roofing. Vlad is formidable to work with along with his crew. Vlad and his crew provided amazing handiwork and always kept us informed about the repairs work. Our home looks fabulous. You cannot even tell it was a construction site as they left our property sparkling clean. If you want a company that will stand by you, while providing superior handiwork, Niko Roofing is the company to go with! You will not be disappointed.

Niko Roofing replaced my roof recently and did a wonderful job. They promptly provided me with an estimate and then matched the pricing of a competitor. Their crew was incredibly respectful of my property, my neighbours and the community as a whole. One crew person remained on the ground to immediately clear all debris away. They offer financing options which is also helpful. I had an inspection done on the roof after Niko Roofing had finished their work and it was flawless. Overall, I had an amazing experience with this company and highly recommend them.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the service I got from Niko Roofing. The owner stopped by in a timely fashion to do an estimate, and was able to show me different samples of appropriate roofing materials for my home, and to explain the advantages of each. After we chose the material and color, the materials were delivered in a very efficient manner. As soon as we had appropriate weather, we were placed on the schedule. The crew arrived slightly ahead of schedule and began work immediately. They worked almost non-stop from 7:30AM to 5:30PM and had the new roof completely installed and all the scrap materials picked up. I was totally impressed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Niko Roofing to anyone...

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.
