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.

Metal roofs can cost up to 3 times when compared to shingles but can everyone afford it? If both roofing systems have the same life span, why pay triple. Once the metal starts to lose its color, it will cost you a lot to sand it down or paint it again but it will never be the same. Baked paint and brushed or sprayed paint does not have the same quality. Wooden roof shingles are a joke too.

Wooden Roof Shingles

One of the reasons why I only choose to sell shingles is that, repairs are easy and cost-effective, any house can be remodeled without a big budget. Don’t spend a ton of money on something which requires high maintenance. Roof shingles have been in the market for decades and they are the most affordable roofing systems out there. Out here in Ottawa the weather is very unpredictable and it can be an 😯 Degrees Celsius from summer to winter. Metal is known to expand and shrink depending on the weather so does the roof shingles. Metal is known to attract ice dams but shingles don’t. Using metal for the exterior walls is a great idea but for the roof shingles are a must.

Many occasions roof leaks are caused by the metal valleys that has no proper underlayment in place to act as a second layer of protection. It is more likely to have an ice dam form where the metal valleys are because they are designed to collect all the water to guide it to a specific direction. Most common installation areas of a house would be at the entrance of the house.

Request up to 3 roofing quotes and estimates and compare when its time to replacing or repairing your roof. Cheaper does not necessarily mean it will be quality work.


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.

Hiring an insured roofing contractor is every homeowners homework. Insurance saves you, your property and the contractor who is going to perform the work.

We offer pitched and flat roofing services for residential and commercial sectors. If you are located in the cities of Ottawa, Nepean, Barrhaven, Kanata, Stittsville, Orleans, Manotick and Greely Ontario we can provide you with a free written quote or an estimate at no cost to you.

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.
