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.

A new roof has more advantages in the long-term when compared to repairing it once or twice a year. Repairs may or may not 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 or in few months depending on the company. Always walk away from ZERO INTEREST or financing options if you ask me because you will pay thousands of dollars more if you do your math. If you have no other options and you feel trapped than financing will be suitable for your budget depending on your credit score. I’ll give you a simple example: Second hand auto sales specialize in bad credit customers because they can charge up to 25% interest in 6 years. If you had good credit you can purchase the same car from the manufacturer as low as 0.9% interest. It is a number game at the end of the day. Pay 5k for your roof today or pay 7500$ in 3 years choice is always yours.

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.

If you spend up to 500$ per year on roof repairs than it is time for a new roof. We can offer you a new roof that will suit your budget and if need help financially we can offer you a payment plan at 0% interest up to 12 month.

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?

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.

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.
