If you experienced a leaky winter because of all the snow and ice build up on your Ottawa home or office, maybe it is that time to reconsider a new roof.

There maybe additional problems with the ventilation and insulation but everything needs to be assessed by a professional roofing contractor in Ottawa.

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.

There is a big difference estimating a roof by looking at it from the street or actually getting up on the roof and measuring the sq footage and the details. Getting up on the roof and measuring is called “a quote”. A quote is more preferred for you because it is accurate measurements instead of eye balling. Eye balling is an estimate where the price may change without a notice because contractor sold himself short and needs to hustle the customer.

Always request 3 roofing quotes when it comes to replacing your Ottawa home, office or commercial building from few local roofing companies. Cheap does not mean good, expensive doesn’t mean good either. The entire concept of getting 3 quotes is to identify the price difference between all and types of material being offered.

Material being used in the current roofing industry are very similar and only thing that really needs to be looked at is the amount of “ice and water shield”, maximum roof vents and the felt paper. Ice and water shield must be applied at least 6 feet from the eavestroughs and the rest of the roof needs to be covered by #15 felt paper or higher grade. Installing ice and water shield and the felt paper must be done by hand. 1 1/4 hand nails are my preference when it comes to hand banging. If there are any valleys, ice and water shield must be installed under neat the metal valley prior the metal valley itself. Valleys are known for ice damming and that’s why we use ice and water shield. A roofing gun can be used to install the shingles only as long as proper dept is set on every gun that is being used on that specific roof.

These are the most important details to look for when it comes to replacing a shingle roof in Ottawa Ontario. We offer free roofing quotes and estimates in Ottawa for residential pitched roofing, residential flat roofing, commercial shingle roofing and commercial flat roofing sales, installations, repairs and services.ImageImageImage

 

 

 

 

 


These days we all try to save as much money as possible from renovations to basic maintenance that is needed for our home or auto. The problem is we only realize things should have been done properly at the beginning to put an end to it there and then.

If you hire a jack of all trades to do your renovations for couple of thousand dollars cheaper than an actual company or companies who specializes in that type of work you might save way more than you think. For example: an electrical fire is caused by the faulty connections due to handyman express bs and now there are no tags with the certification numbers and insurance will not pay for the damages. Was it worth it? I don’t think so. Another example: handyman express brushed tar all around the roof where they though the original leak was but next rain fall leak got worst and cost thousands more to repair it. Plywood had to be changed, insulation had to be replaces and new ceiling with a paint job was a must to get things back into normal. Handyman express is a great service at a low-cost to certain things but not for anything that requires experience, skill and certification.

It may be a good idea to save now but make sure it wont empty your pockets later for the same problem. Always hire a professional for whatever needs to be done in and around the house. Companies that are experienced and fully insured are less likely to generate more problems in the future plus they pay tone of money for insurance coverage’s to protect themselves and you if things go south.

A fully insured roofing company will have liability and wsib coverage for employees and the homeowners. Handyman express might have a life insurance package. Do you see the difference here?

There are few reasons why the roof shingles get blown away from the wind if you ask me. Age of the roof is one of the key factors and aged curled shingles have no chance against the wind because they are completely cooked under the sun for many years.

Anyone can use an air roofing gun now a days and many contractors claim to know how to install a new roof properly. From what I’ve seen in the past few days is not acceptable. There are instructions on the on the bundles telling you where to and where not to place the nails while installing but if a volume builder is paying you for your speed not for the accuracy than you might be in jeopardy of repairing yours very often. All the new houses come with two years exterior warranty and if you needed repairs within the first two years of purchasing your new home, you should hire a professional roofing contractor in your area to inspect and point out the good and the bad. Today i completed 3 roof repairs in Orleans Ontario and all of them were new homes. Improper installation was the main cause of loosing shingles. 25 years shingles are rated up to 95km/hour and architectural shingles are rated up to 165km/hour resistance “IF INSTALLED PROPERLY”.

If you are a new homeowner before spending more money on roof repairs, hire a insured roofing company in your area to inspect your roof and report it to you by writing. Advise your builder that you have a report in your hand stating that such and such. Once your warranty is over you are history in the builders agenda so act now. If you have to pursue this matter in the court-house to ask for your right, do it don’t let them get away with another pass of from your bank. Once the builder gets paid from your bank, you owe the money to your bank not to the builder.

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.
