How Can I Tell If I Need a New Roof?

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

How Long Will It Take to Replace My Roof?

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.

How Much Does It Cost to Get a New Roof?

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

Century Roofing Limited is happy to provide a free estimate so that you can properly budget for your roofing project.

What Is the Best Roofing Material for My House?

This is really a matter of personal choice. You’ll want to think about the appearance of the other homes in your neighbourhood, your own personal preference and style, and the longevity of the materials you are considering.

Are Metal Roofs Noisier Than Other Materials?

This is a common misconception, but the fact is that metal roofing is no noisier than any other type of roofing material.

How Long Will My Roof Last?

This really depends on the material used, the weather conditions where you live and the amount of maintenance you do over the years.

Do You Also Install Siding?

Yes! Century Roofing Limited proudly provides both residential and commercial clients with professional siding installations in a variety of materials.

What Types of Siding Can I Choose From?

We don’t limit ourselves to just vinyl siding. Century Roofing also offers customers the following materials:

  • Aluminum
  • Composite

  • Wood

Do You Also Install Eavestroughing?

Yes! Our Calgary contractors install seamless aluminum or steel eavestroughs to divert water and debris away from your home and protect it from water damage.

Are Roofing Materials Recyclable?

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!

Why Is Ventilation so Important?

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.

What Is an Ice Dam and How Can I Prevent It?

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.

Can You Install Solar Panels On My Roof?

Yes! Solar panels represent a significant investment, but they can also help cut your electricity bills year after year. Century Roofing Limited can install solar panels or solar shingles on your roof to make your home more energy efficient.
