Many people who rely on the best companies when installing roofing membranes or replace the roof of their houses. There are a variety of advantages that flat roofs can give your home.

A slanted roof is very difficult to clean and most of the time you will need to call a professional to do the job. It is very risky to climb on a pitched roof, and your only option is to call a maintenance company. Flat roofs are easy to clean and also have a coating that helps the water flow over the surface.

A flat roof helps homeowners reduce energy use, especially in summer. These facilitate cooling ceilings of the house, particularly if it has been coated roofing membranes reflective material that allows heat from the sun increases the temperature inside the house.

Currently growing homeowners are installing flat roofs and covered with roofing membranes or looking houses with roofs such as it is quite cheap compared to install angled ceilings. A smaller amount of material is used and labor costs are also reduced drastically

Read the entry here published on waterproofing of horizontal surfaces , flat roofs and terraces passable. The flat roof is characteristic of the modern house . Although there are modern chalet style houses with sloping roofs, the change in architecture leading to flat roofs and its use was effective as modern house design and modern buildings in the twentieth century.

Actually, a flat roof is not strictly horizontal: if not, the water will not slip out. They are named for the average slope of a flat roof (between 1 and 3 inches per foot of horizontal development) is significantly lower than that of a tiled roof: it can range from 0.30 meters to at least one meter Ceiling horizontal development. It is therefore more likely to heavy rain water from collecting in a ceiling more than one inclined plane. And so, the chances of leaks. Especially if the ceiling is not well resolved encounters with wall’s insulation (babetas calls). Or if they were not well constructed seams or vents in the funnels through which the water will drain.

If it snows, the choice is one: in these cases the sloped ceiling is imposed. Even if possible, it is desirable that the ceiling as simple as possible. This prevents the breaks-called valleys, and hip lines-which are the weak points of a sloping roof.

It is a hard question to answer when there is no measurements in hand or blueprints to look at. It will depend on the house if it’s a single home, detached or a condo unit. Also the most important part of all is the pitch of the roof.

If they actually get up on the roof and measure the sqf, how many vents, valleys are needed to determine the exact cost.

To replace a roof on a basic single family home can be anywhere from 4500 to 6000$ depending on the pitch and details. Detached homes are normally between 3000 to 4500$ since they have less sqf.

Since the last wind storm i had customers complain about other roofing companies who wants to charge 250$ for sending a service truck to an address and to perform simple roof repairs at homeowners cost. So 250$ for the service call plus material and labor???

Would you agree to pay a roofing company 450$ to remove 3 taps and install 3 new taps of shingles to your roof? I don’t know if you are second generation rich person but paying 450$ for that is sounds like robbery to me. We offer free estimates all around town and when we do price out a job we asses the difficulty of it and amount of material is needed to complete it. I have done repairs for as low as 60$ if its only one or two taps and it’s easy to get to. Time to wake up people. Also many people are getting fooled with the cost of the roof repairs and actually making a claim to their insurance company. This is the type of trap some companies wants to get you in to. Always shop around and get up to 3 estimates for your roof repairs or roof replacements. Compare all the differences and make a decision from there.

Being able to fall asleep looking at the stars is a great feature in your own home but being able to do that does come with a bit of worry when it’s raining in your house.

There can be two reasons why your skylight is leaking; first of all on either sides of the skylight there is step flashing mounted in the frame of the skylight. If the shingles are not installed tightly against the skylight and there is a gap between the side walls and the shingles, that can be a concern. And also second common issue with the skylights is that the seal on the glass eventually weakens from cold winters and extreme hot summer days. Seal around the double pain eventually cracks from expending and shrinking. It creates a gap where the water works its way into your house depending on the positioning of the skylight. Especially if your skylight is an older dome style. It is really impossible to prevent the seal from getting cracked. Best option for homeowners is to hire a professional roofing contractor to inspect your skylight and apply silicon around the double pain. Or apply caulking around the skylight to extend its performance against the temperature change.

Always hire a insured roofing contractor in your area. Ask for business registration number, liability insurance policy and wsib registration number to protect yourself. You are not only protecting yourself also making sure that the roofing contractor is fully aware of the risks there are involved.

We offer free quotes and estimates in the cities of Ottawa, Nepean, Barrhaven, Kanata, Stittsville, Orleans, Manotick and Greely Ontario for roof repairs, siding repairs, flat roof repairs, foundation repairs and snow removal/plowing services.


You may think that the seals are bad between the double panes in your window but the real question is what is the cause for it? During cold winter months your furnace is working overtime to keep your house in a reasonable temperatures live in. Insulation behind the drywall and in your attic supposed to keep you warm from cold winter months. When there is no fresh air flow in your attic due to improper ventilation system, it forces all the warm air to get trapped and cause condensation .

Many may think skylight is in bad shape and needs to be replaced but it may only leak because of the ice dams that are allowing water to enter around the skylight and cause a leak.

It’s like taking a shower with hot water and getting all the mirrors moist. As soon as you turn on the fan all the moist air fans out and circulates the air.

So on your roof there are vents designed to fan out the trapped moist air. If these vents are blocked because of the snow or they are not big enough to fan out the moist air, it will cause condensation. If you are experiencing similar effects and want some answers, contact your local roofing contractor for advise. If roof vents are not visible and covered with snow, hire an experienced roofer in your area to remove all the snow off your roof.

Be sure to ask for proof of insurance.


When fall arrives with all the heavy rain mother nature drops, it is a mystery where the water got in to your attic.
Always inspect your ceiling for obvious yellow stains. It normally takes time for it to get bigger and bigger. By the time it starts dripping from your ceiling, it already made its way through the plywood, insulation, vapor barrier and of course the drywall.

What do we do next? Contact your local Ottawa Roofing Company for an inspection to have it repaired.
If it is an emergency you don’t have much time to shop around. Get it done as soon as possible before the damage gets worst.
Black mold is dangerous and harmful to you and your loved ones. Babies are the first ones to get sick from it. Seniors are always next in line and of course anyone else that resides in that house, building or condo.

Be aware of the problems it can cause in the future. Have your attic and walls inspected by a professional who has knowledge about mold and solutions to those problems. Depending on your house or building be sure to contact the right roofing company to perform the necessary repairs. Not every roofing company can repair a flat roof or pitched roof. If you require flat roof repair contact a roofing company that is specialized in flat roofs. If it’s a pitched roof, contact a pitched roofing specialist. Do not hire a handyman to perform the repairs. Be sure to ask for proof of insurance to protect yourself and to raise awareness for the contractor itself.
