Whatever type of roofing you’re looking for, we can help – whether it’s slate, shingle, tile, flat roofs or gutters. They are all important exterior features of your home and should be treated with the greatest of care. We pay great attention to details – From our very first home visit for a free roof inspection – through to the final clean up and removal of your old roof (which we take away to be recycled). We guarantee quality on all services, from small repairs to new roofs and additions to your home.
Unfortunately all good roofs wear out over time and at some point repairing your roof is no longer cost effective. The money spent on repeated repairs is better invested in a roof replacement. We can help you make the best choices and find the best value roofing solution.
A Roof-Over is when the existing worn out shingles are left on the roof and a new set of shingles is placed over them. It’s often considered a cheaper alternative to a complete roof replacement because of the time saved not doing a full tear off, however there are pros and cons for this process. If you re-roof over existing shingles, you shorten the life of the new shingle up to 50% and some (if not all) shingle manufacturers will also void the warranty on the new shingle. If you go over an existing roof there’s no way to know if any boards or plywood that form the roof deck are in need of replacement. A typical re-roof will take a small crew one day while it will take the same crew two days to do it right with a full tear off.
Many home owners do not think of their roofs until it is too late. Leak repairs can be very expensive in the winter months because repairs become harder to complete, take longer to fix, and in many situations can be very dangerous. It’s better when roof work can be done in dry and safe conditions. So it is always more efficient, and therefore more cost-effective, to do roof inspections and maintenance before winter arrives.
We get a lot of calls for roof repair. As a Homeowner It is best to catch these “minor” repairs as early as possible before they turn into bigger problems. For instance – your roof may not be leaking but you can see a number of slipped shingles, now is the time to call an expert to correct the damage before water starts to penetrate the roof and cause expensive repair work. We can take care of a wide range of repair needs quickly and affordably.
