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.

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 but quality has a price tag. Call or email for your free roofing quote in Ottawa Ontario Today.

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

 

 

 

 

 


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.

We also offer in home or over the phone free consultation for the cities of Ottawa, Nepean, Barrhaven, Kanata, Stittsville, Orleans, Manotick and Greely Ontario.


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.
