Every year there is a new product in the market that we watch the same commercials about it over and over again on different channels. Have you seen any commercials about roof shingles or roofing products in Canada? All I see is car, trucks, food and health related products being advertised over and over.

I have seen many lawn signs saying that your last roof and all that but is it really your last roof? Metal roof manufacturers really think that  homeowners will really spend three times more to get their roof replaced but hey are wrong. If the warranty on roof shingles and metal roof is the same why should anyone spend 15000$ if they only need to spend 5000$. Some homeowners have too much money piled under their pillows and don’t know what to do with. I personally think that metal roofs in Canada is not a good choice and if you ask why? Because there is a +40 to -40 temperature difference between summer and winter months which is not a condition that metal can survive due to expanding and shrinking factor. Discoloration and fading color is another problem with metal roofs. It may cost up to thousands of dollars if you were to re-finish it again but it will never be the same. Majority of the homeowners choose shingles because it is affordable, repairs are easy and has zero chance of getting hit by a lightning. Your house getting hit by a lightning is has a very small percentage but if it does i don’t know what the aftermath would be.

Metal roof products are way over priced when you compare it to shingles and i would rather pay the 5000$ instead of 15000$ for it any day. We offer full line of roof shingles and products for residential and commercial sectors. Free quotes and estimates at your finger tip when you want it.

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.

Proper way of determining an exact cost for a roof is to getting a free estimate from a local roofing company. If they actually get up on the roof and measure the sqf, how many vents, valleys are needed to determine the exact cost. Never believe a guesstimator who gives you a quote just by looking at it and telling you that he’s done it all. 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.
These are just the simple numbers according to whats available in the market as affordable housing. If we are talking about a custom home that has been designed to give roofers a challenge may cost you up to 10000$

Now days to replace a square of roof can start from 220$ and up depending on how much ice and water shield, how many vents, valleys or the slope. There isn’t a set price for re-roofing and it varies from company to company. There are also flyby roofing companies that offer tail-light warranty for 150 a square who you want to stay away from.

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.
