Whether you need a new roof or a roof repair, we are here to provide excellent service – at affordable prices! We have compiled a list of the most common questions that people ask our roofers. We specialize in roofing Calgary trusts.

How Do I Know if I Need a New Roof?

People will often ask us if they should continue to repair their roofs as needed or if they should invest in a new roof. We suggest making an appointment with our expert roofers for a free estimate. You will be able to ask a roofer what they would suggest. Our roofing will recommend what type of roof and shingles would work best for your property. Your roof is the first line of defense between your property and our changeable Calgary weather. We will schedule an appointment at a time that is convenient for you and will inspect your roof.

Signs that your roof may need to be replaced include:

  • Curling shingles occur when the asphalt in shingles dries out and shrinks over time. This will lead to the shingles becoming brittle and will be more vulnerable to getting blown off by high winds.
  • Missing granules on shingles: this occurs over time. You can tell if your shingles are missing granules if there are dark patches on light-colored shingles and light patches on dark coloured shingles. Granules protect the asphalt in a shingle from being damaged by the sun’s UV rays.
  • Shingles are being blown off the roof: this happens when shingles have become dried, cracked, and curled. This indicates that the shingles have reached the end of their lifespan.
  • The roof’s age: this is a very important consideration when deciding if you should get a new roof. There comes a time when your roof has exceeded its lifespan and will need to be replaced.

What Should I Expect?

Our expert roofers will make an appointment at a time that’s convenient for you to inspect your roof and determine whether it’s best to repair an existing problem or replace the roof. Once you have given the go-ahead, we will schedule a day for your repair or installation to be completed. Our crew will clean your property so that no materials are left behind. We use leaf blowers, industrial brooms, and powerful magnets to ensure that everything has been cleaned. We will even make sure that the gutters are clean!

How Long Does It Take?

Our expert roofers can install a new roof in as little as one day. We will give you a timeline for the job. We will let you know what to expect as there are often unique details that are specific to each project. You can also ask a roofer for a detailed breakdown of what to expect.
