With the holiday season now upon us, money has a way of disappearing quicker than any other time of the year. We at Professional Roofers know that the cost of hiring a roofing contractor can be daunting for any homeowner, particularly at this time of year, which is why we decided the next blog in our series on “choosing the right roofing contractor” would be about the importance of receiving several quotes or bids for the work you need completed. However, when you receive a roofing quote, it is not simply as cut and dry as opting for the cheapest contractor out there. A bid that is initially the cheapest might actually end up costing you the most in the long run if you don’t know what you are looking for. There are a lot of factors you need to consider in order to accurately and appropriately compare bids, and we’ve created this blog to help you sift through your options and hopefully allow you to make an informed decision on the company you inevitably choose to hire.
The fall season in Canada can mean a lot of things to a lot of people: warm colourful hues on trees, family thanksgiving celebrations, Halloween costumes, and delicious pumpkin flavoured goods are just a few of the reasons it is beloved by many.
I think we would all like to believe that this week’s common GTA roofing problem doesn’t occur, but unfortunately it happens all too often – yes, this week at Professional Roofers we’re talking about poor installation services. Whether you hired the wrong roofer or you tried to fix a problem yourself, mistakes happen and it is important to know what to look for when it comes to improper roof installation, as a small problem today can become a big problem tomorrow.
Here at Professional Roofers we’ve dealt with all kinds of roofing problems. Homeowners typically expect roof damage from extreme wind or torrential rainstorms: what they often don’t think about are the slow culprits. The common, everyday things that can seriously deteriorate and decrease the lifespan of a roof: I’m talking about moss, lichen, fungus, and blue-green algae.
We at Professional Roofers understand how crucial it is for you to keep your roof in good working order: we know that you value your roof and work hard to maintain it year round. Despite this, there are many potential threats to a roof’s integrity that many homeowners are unaware of, so we decided to write several pieces on some of the lesser-known culprits of roof damage.
We know we’re partial here at Professional Roofers, but it goes without saying that the roof is one of the most, if not the most, essential elements of a house. Without a roof, your house would be nothing more than a bunch of stuff, a set of walls, and floors, completely exposed to the elements.
Over the years, we’ve dealt with pretty much every roofing problem under the sun here at Professional Roofers, so almost nothing surprises us anymore. However, we understand that roofing isn’t everyone’s business and most homeowners are still unsure of their best course of action when it comes to a lot of seemingly small roofing issues.
