There has been a major increase in town-home developments in the past five years in Ottawa Ontario. Mainly in Barrhaven, Kanata and Orleans Ontario from 2 to 3 story town-homes. Price for a new roof can depend on the style of the house as well as the details.

Not every home is built the same and there are townhomes as big as a single family home. Roof structure on townhomes are mainly elevated. There may or may not be any valleys, dormers, lower roofs at the front or at the back of the house. It is always recommended to replace the entire roof at once but most of the time it is a mission impossible to bring 4 to 6 homeowners agree on terms. End units are always more expensive to replace because the end units are much bigger in terms of square footage as well as the middle units.
Only problem with townhomes is that dividing the property line between 2 units and waterproofing both units once the installation is complete.
Shingle Manufacturers has specific guidelines in order to offer a valid warranty when the roof is being replaced. Not every roofing contractor is aware of this nor the homeowners.

Typical townhome roofs can be anywhere between 3000$ to 5500$ the most and again it all depends on the details, pitch of the roof etc..
It is always a good idea to get 3 quotes when its time to replace your townhome. Always talk to your neighbors living on the same complex to see whether they will be interested in replacing the roof at the same time as you are to speed up the process as well as reduce the cost of having another roofing company come out. It will save money and time if it is all done at the same time.

English: Snow being dropped from roof.

As we all know owning a house is the best thing can anyone would want instead of renting of course. Only difference is that you do not have a landlord to call if there is a problem.

What is the most important part of a house? Your roof of course. What can you do to protect your roof? For starters, have your roof inspected every year before winter to make sure it will survive the heavy snow fall, ice build ups and of course heavy rain during the spring.

The roof is designed to protect you against whatever the mother nature has to offer. During winter months all the snow parks on top of your roof and waits for the sunny days to melt. When it starts to melt it could lead to major water damage in your attic, on your walls, even on your floors. What happens is that when the surface of your roof turns in to ice and it gets thicker and thicker. Once the melting occurs water is looking for a path to make its way down. If the slope on your roof is 4/12 or 6/12 pitch, you may be facing  water damage or not yet.
When the slope of the roof is not providing a path for the water to escape, it finds its way down in to your bedroom, living room or kitchen.
When the water starts to build up it works its way going towards the peak of the roof. It creeps under the shingles or metal penal. It happens most of the time to “bungalows” where the slope is 4/12 or 6/12. It can happen to any home with this type of pitch.

How can you prevent this from happening? The answer is simple. *First of all have your gutters cleaned out before winter so that ice doesn’t build up inside your gutters. *Have your roof inspected before winter. *Get all the valleys,  flashing’s and all the exposed nails caulked. *If snow is starting to build up, get it removed by a professional. * Get all the snow removed before Feb/21.
