What Kind of Roof Do You Want?

In order to get the best roofing company in Toronto, choose one with proven expertise in the kind of material you want for your home. Different aesthetic tastes and building functions mean that there is no one-type-fits-all solution. The best roofing company will be able to advise you on the ideal choice for your needs – and not simply up sell you to the most expensive type of roofing.
The most common roof material in North America is the asphalt shingle. It is inexpensive, versatile and comes in a variety of shades. At a higher price point level, asphalt shingles can be designed to look like wood shakes or tiles. Asphalt shingles are durable, fire resistant and easy to repair.
Cedar shingles and shakes are also very popular. Cedar costs more than asphalt and is also more expensive to install. However, it also has greater longevity than asphalt and provides a higher return on investment. One of the foremost reasons for cedar’s popularity is its beauty, with a honey colour that ages gracefully into a grey-silver shade.

Cedar, Slate and Composite Shingles

Cedar roofs are popular.  They tend to last longer than many other materials – up to fifty years. They are lightweight and environmentally friendly and work well to keep out moisture and withstand winds.
Slate roofing is extremely durable and almost indestructible, lasting up to a century. Because it is stone, it is very heavy; this may have a bearing on the kind of structure that can support its weight. It is more expensive than other types of roofing.
Composite Shingles are light, expensive and made to resemble wood shakes or slate shingles and are often virtually indistinguishable and weather-resistant.

Repair and Installation of Roofs

The DVR Roofing is the best roofing company in Toronto are also experts in repair. That often involves a lot more than simply finding a hole in the roof. Among the tasks and problems that can confront a building owner are:
  • Tearing off the old roof. The "tear off” of the old asphalt shingles is the quickest part of the process – and also the messiest. The best roofers will lay tarpaulins on the ground and lean plywood against walls to protect shrubbery and siding.
  • Flashing and remaining nails must be removed.
  • Damaged sheathing. The roof decking must be checked for problems – including rot or damaged spots. If there is roof damage, it should be cut next to the rafters, the rafters supported, and a replacement made with exterior grade plywood.
  • A roofing underlayment should be installed over the repaired sheathing. It includes both  synthetic roofing paper and an ice and water shield. Drip Edge Flashing along the eaves and edges of the roof direct water away from roof decking. Flashing itself channels water off the roof and away from seams and any areas prone to leaks.
