Beyond Curb Appeal Part 2: GAF Shingles for Ottawa Homes

As among the few GAF Master Elite™ roofers in Ottawa, we recommend the most suitable asphalt shingle designs for these popular home styles:


For the classic symmetrical design and pitched roofs of the Colonial, GAF’s the Camelot®, the Camelot II®, and the Stateline® are perfect. These three sought-after products emulate the timeless beauty of wood shakes and slates at a fraction of the cost. They may be the economical choice as opposed to such traditional roof materials, but they nevertheless uncompromising performance against the rigors of the environment for decades. After all, regular inspections and immediate roof repair in Ottawa can certainly add years to your GAF roofing system.


If you live in a Ranch-styled home, we recommend GAF’s the Grand Sequoia®, the Grand Canyon®, and the Timberline® to complement your simplistic architecture. Patterned after wood shake, any of these asphalt shingles will add character to your low-pitched roofing and long roofline by giving it a stunning texture. To blend with your minimalist exterior, we suggest any tones of grays, blacks, and browns.


To accentuate your roof irregularly shaped, steeply pitched roofs, GAF’s the Stateline and the Sienna® are your best options. They offer the classic charm of old-world elegance, which are a great alternative to the costlier slate. TopOttawa roofing companies advise bold hues, like reds, greens, or blended grays, to bring out the appeal unique to Victorian homes.
