There is a small % of roofing contractors who know how to install or repair flat roofing systems in Ottawa Ontario.

Homes built around the 1980s or prior years had tar and gravel roofing systems. Back then, it was the most popular roofing systems and it was affordable. 40 years later, these roofs need to be restored to new technology systems. New roofing systems like Modified Bitumen torchon roofs are a RedSeal specialty.

FIRE PROTECTION (PROBOARD)

Finding a leak on a tar and gravel roof can be not only challenging, also it can be costly for the homeowners. In my personal experience, I always recommend for a new roof instead of trying to bandaid and old system.

180FF BASE MEMBRANE

In order to install a new roof, gravel needs to be removed off the roof, tar needs to be removed completely, and all the flashing needs to be removed. Once we are down to the bare wood deck, slope can be adjusted according to drainage that already exists and/or address the slope to prevent water pooling on the roof.

250 CAP MEMBRANE

If the slope is good, the roof deck is in good shape, and fire protection will be the first item to installed, followed by the 180ff base membrane starting from the drain of course. 180ff membrane will be folded down onto the side walls prior to installing dripedge starter metal flashing. Once the dripedge is installed and fastened with nails, everything has to be spray primed (manufacturer recommended ) for a superior seal. The next step is to install a strip of 180ff membrane on the flashing to seal the nails and flashing to the field. Now, we are ready for the Torch 250cap membrane starting from the drain.

We only use white color membrane to maximize energy efficiency and regulate the temperature inside house as well as extend the life of the roof.

A new roof has more advantages in the long-term when compared to repairing it once or twice a year. Roof Repairs may  cost few hundred dollars but again depending on the situation it may be a lot more than you’ve expected.
Most important advantage of a new roof is that you will be worry free for a very long time if it was done right. You may have to come up with the money at once and getbitbover with, charge it to a credit card or whichever makes you comfortable.

Depending on the weather your roof will age a lot faster when compared to milder weather when no rain or snow is in the forecast. Heavy rain is the worst when it comes to wear and tear. Annual roof inspection is a must if your roof is older than 8 years. Eavestroughs needs to be cleaned at least once a year prior to winter. It can be DIY project for the homeowners but again, if its difficult to access, hiring a professional roofing company is a must. All these maintenance costs will add up at the end of the year.
