Toronto’s Ongoing Construction Boom

As a company that offers flat roof repairs and roof installation, we are lucky to live in a city that is teeming with progress and construction. The city of Toronto is set to absorb 100,000 new citizens a year for the foreseeable future, and while a lot of those folks will end up living in high rises and condominiums, the demand for fully detached houses in the GTA is booming more than ever. In many cases, developers are keen to buy old, withering houses for a price, and then flip them into sleek new homes – at this point, a property anywhere near the downtown core is often more valuable than the house that sits on top of it.

 

As a result, we’ve been lucky enough to install many, many roofs on brand new houses, ensuring that they look great and are well protected from the elements. Another happy coincidence is that many developers building new homes in Toronto cater to the market by building houses with a modern aesthetic, sleek, clean lines, lots of shiny windows and – the pièce de résistance – the flat roof.

 

People know to call Professional Roofers when they need flat roof installation or flat roof repair help in Toronto and the GTA because we have a sterling reputation for specializing in flat roof work. A flat roof looks great on any home, and because a flat roof is made up of large, weatherproof membranes, there’s less of a chance of sustaining a leak than if your house is made up of smaller shingles, which are less resistant to precipitation.

At the end of the summer, with autumn and winter on the horizon, contractors are hustling their tails off to finish the job before the cold weather hits so they can get tenants or prospective buyers in there as soon as possible. Because of this rush, sometimes companies will cut corners in order to get the job done and make the property profitable. At Professional Roofers, we think this type of shoddy workmanship is reprehensible: a house is meant to keep you and your family safe and warm – lesser craftsmanship screws up your quality of life and may lead to repair costs down the road that should have been avoided.

 

When we install a roof, we make sure that the job is done right so that you won’t need serious roof work done for a long time. Yearly inspections are always a good idea, but a roof should last between twenty and thirty years and serious repairs shouldn’t really be necessary unless there’s a major storm or a tree falls on your house.

 

Whether you’re looking for workers to install a roof, or you’re having problems with your skylight or shingled roof, you can always feel free to call our Toronto roofing experts for some guidance. We started a roofing company because we love roofs, architecture and helping people. If you’re unsure of a roofing company you’re considering, you can always call us for a second opinion. When it comes to the roof over your house, never settle for less, get Pro Roofers on the job.
