Alberta Building Code: Roofing Calgary

The Alberta Building Code is in place and it is important that it is followed by all roofing contractors. There are very specific rules and when you have roofing problems in Calgary AB, it may have to do with improper installation because the contractor did not follow the building codes recently.

Roofs need to be protected with sufficient roofing materials, including flashing, and installed in such a way that it will shed rain effectively. Water should never enter the roof, particularly as a result of ice damming.

The Alberta Building Code also calls for proper ventilation. This includes the ability for the flow of moisture to be controlled and four event areas to be unobstructed. There are also specifications regarding the roof slope and what needs to be done for the unobstructed vent areas depending upon the slope of the roof.
