BP Shingles 2012 - Our Review of BP Shingles Weather-Tite Technology

BP Shingles, a division of Building Products Corp is a significant shingle manufacturer in Canada. In Alberta, BC, and Saskatchewan the representation at the big box stores and the shingle distributors is very good. Both Home Depot Shingle Dept and the Rona Stores carry BP Shingles. And for the Shingle Companies installing the BP Shingles, local distribution in Western Canada is excellent.

"The quality of the BP Shingle in 2012 has increased considerably with the introduction of the Weather-Tite Shingle Technology from BP."

BP Shingle Review Summary
In summary, our roofing installers enjoy installing the BP shingles, GRS as a company is extremely enthused with the advancements in the manufacturing technology of the Weather-Tite shingles. The benefits of the new BP Shingle technology is hard to ignore, as such we rate the new BP Shingles as a Very Good. We recommend these shingles to our customers.

- Better wind resistance (TAS 100 testing 180km, UL2390 Class H 240km) - High Wind Shingles are one of the most important considerations our Residential Roofing customers have.

- Better wind driven rain resistance - Wind driven rain resistance is critical, which is important as our shingle installers in Vancouver have recently found and with recent wind storms in Southern Alberta in which they held up well. The Nanton, High River, Okotoks, Cochrane, and Lethbridge areas we have issue regularly with wind storms and the shingle installs.

- Better resistance to water infiltration - Water infiltration is a major problem with shingle installs, our specification for how we install shingles at GRS alleviates a lot of this to begin with, but this technology helps a lot.

- Better resistance to surface uplift - Surface uplift with shingles is something we've struggled with for some-time. To alleviate this, our shingle installation specifications draw out unusual extremes for our installers, hopefully this helps (yet to be seen - time will tell the story).
