For some, replacing the roof may simply be a matter of updating the appearance of the house, while for others it’s more a matter of necessity. Here are a few of the telltale signs that your roof might need to be replaced:
- Curling or cracked shingles
- Loss of granules from the shingles
- Patches of worn or missing shingles
- A roof that is more than 20 years old
- Evidence of a leak, like water spots or a musty smell
Each roofing project is a little bit different. The length of time that it takes to complete a roof depends on the size and design of the house, the material chosen, the installation method, the time of year and the weather. When we provide you with an estimate we’ll be able to tell you just how long your particular project is expected to take.
The total cost of installing a new roof depends on a number of factors, including:
- The type and grade of roofing material used
- The contractor doing the work
- The size of your home
- Where you’re located
- Time of year

Yes! No matter what material your old roof was made of, manufacturers can help you keep those materials out of the dump. Roofing materials can be recycled and used for roads, playgrounds or even new roofing materials!
Air needs to be able to move freely beneath the roof’s surface or moisture can build up and result in mould growth, warping and ice dams.
Debris in the gutters, combined with escaping heat from the home, can result in the formation of ice blockages in the gutters. Once this happens, thawing water has no way to escape but into your walls, ceiling, insulation and other areas of your home. You can prevent ice dams from forming by making sure that your home is properly insulated, your attic has adequate ventilation and your gutters are free from debris.
