When to redo your residential roof?

The best time to redo a residential roof is summer. It is during this period that the climatic conditions are favorable for freely carrying out repair work.

After an inspection

Regularly checking a roof can determine the right time to redo or renovate it. It remains prudent to entrust the mission to a professional, because this operation exposes the risk of falls.

Inspection should be done periodically:

  • Once every 10 years: if the roof is less than 10 years old;
  • Once every 2 years: if the roof is less than 20 years old;
  • Annually: if the roof is over 40 years old.

Refer to material life

This summary of the duration of a roof according to its material gives you an idea of the right time for the repair work on your property:

  • In shingles: between 15 to 20 years;
  • In elastomers: between 20 to 25 years;
  • In tiles: between 30 to 100 years;
  • In plants: between 25 to 30 years;
  • Slate: about 100 years old;
  • In steel tank: about 100 years;
  • In zinc: about 100 years.

Evaluate the general structure of the roof

A roofer can undertake a roof diagnostic to determine the presence of anomalies, including breaks or installation faults. A repair is necessary when these problems are perceived at the level of the frame, shingles, under-roof or ridge.

Most of the time, there are signs of damage. It could be leaks, water infiltration or even mold. The roof has waterproofing problems and can no longer protect the home properly.

Why entrust operations to professionals?

Roofing work is complex and dangerous as it is carried out at height. It is therefore crucial to call on service providers with a mastery of the trade, in particular Toiture Couvreur Laval.

Recommendations from specialists

A professional roofer is able to advise on the procedures to be followed for a lasting achievement. It is important to make the best choices to avoid mistakes exposing them to further damage.

A professional can recommend whether or not you need to renovate, partially or completely, the roofing of a house.

What materials to choose to redo your residential roof?

The role of a roof is to protect a building, but also to provide the comfort that tenants need. It is therefore necessary to choose the material carefully to obtain the desired effect.

Here are the different options available to you:

  • The elastomeric membrane: popular for its ease of installation, regardless of the season. It is resistant and has a high level of waterproofing. Its disadvantage lies in its installation exposing the risk of fire.
  • Plants: they block the ultraviolet rays responsible for the deterioration of the roof. They have good acoustic and thermal performance, but require a lot of maintenance.
  • Steel: it is fully recyclable. It is low maintenance and good value for money.
  • The asphalt shingle: An asphalt shingle roof can withstand strong winds of up to 100 km / h. Some materials have the ability to reflect the sun’s rays to keep the attic cool.
  • Slate: this coating has the advantage of not fading under the action of sunlight. His condition remains virtually the same, regardless of the effect of the ultraviolet rays. It is also resistant to frost, bad weather and acid rain. Its drawback is its significant weight and its fragile nature during installation.

Just after the big storm that took place a month ago, we went online and filled the specific form that we have found on this company’s website. This was on a Saturday afternoon. The next day the manager called us and visited our house to evaluate the situation with the roof. The roof suffered grave damages, a condition that couldn’t go unfixed for many days since everyone feared the next heavy rain. The manager provided us with a reasonable quote and the next day they started working on our roof with professionalism and extra care.

The reason we called your company was because we desired a makeover of our house and our roof. We also wanted to improve the insulation in our house. Your company suggested installing a glass wool mat and a HPV underlay system, a system that was installed in addition to the structure that was already there. Two years have passed since then and the insulation works greatly keeping our house warmer and cooler. If you want to make a long-term investment or you simply face issues with your roof, do not hesitate to contact them.

We couldn’t be happier with the work performed in our roof last June. The interior and exterior of the roof along with the finishing touches are perfect and very qualitative. Also, the insulation installed gives to our house a sense of warmth and comfort that we did not have before. Overall, we are very grateful for everything this roofing company did on our roof and for its polite, experienced and professional crew. We will recommend it to anyone we know.

I received a quote from this specific company regarding a replacement on a roof. This concerned a property in the suburbs that I wanted to rent. The company completed a precise investigation and estimate within the next 2 business days. Every part of the team worked very professionally and helpfully throughout the entire process. The team manager offered me many solutions and advice and I chose the one that best fitted my budget and my needs. The result from then on is exquisite and of the utmost quality.

We recently bought a new house and we couldn’t be more happy and anxious to start enjoying it. But we had an issue: the roofing was outdated and needed to be renovated in its entirety. This specific company came highly recommended and this was the reason behind choosing it to assist us with replacing and fixing our roofing. Not only did they assist us but they offered to place a specific insulation system allowing us to spend 50% less in our yearly electricity and heating bills. Definitely a must!

I am a man of the same profession (a bricklayer) and trust me when I say that I have never seen such a professional and hard-working roofing company. The reason I hired them was to apply a waterproofing insulation in my terrace. The end-result is very well and after severe and heavy rains, not a single issue occurred. The tightness is excellent and everything works and fits perfectly. I will definitely count on this company again in the future if I ever need any work done on my roof.

Great professionals. Ratio quality-price that no one else can beat. We completely recommend them and we are so happy that our terrace roof got fixed. In addition to that, they provided waterproofing and flooring services in our attic. They employed a 10 people team in our house, everyone a serious and professional individual. The result is of the utmost quality and very clean. Work started when agreed upon and finished the same. The finishing touches are great and we are very happy. If we ever need any other repairs, we will definitely use them again without hesitation.
