We have been working in Barrhaven pretty much this whole summer and lots of roofs needs replacing. If the majority of your roof is facing south or southwest you will be replacing your roof more often.
You roof protects you, keeps you dry and keeps you cold. Poor maintenance is the biggest problem with most of the houses. A simple leak can lead to thousands of dollars in repairs. First time this season we have run into a house that has so much plywood damage it was a nightmare. Every section we removed the old shingles had water damage. Total of four guys against this one house full of surprises. It is so dangerous to walk on it because we might end up in one of the bedrooms unintentionally.
There are many steps homeowners can take to eliminate further damage caused by a leak, poor ventilation or ice damming. If your roof leaks once it will follow the same path and cause more damage in your attic. Always clean your gutters twice a year. Make sure there is proper intake and ventilation system in place to eliminate ice damming or prevent leaks.
I have spent lots of time and money into how to grow and spread into different wings by modifying all of our services to specific parts of the city. NepeanRoofing.ca was one of the master pieces that was released.
I’ve been building links and writing articles for some time now and it is a great way of marketing. I chose not to pay for ad-words or pay-per-click. It might work for you but you will be getting taxed by Google or whoever you do marketing with. I wanna make money for myself not for others.
When the month of November arrives all the business owner panic to get a reliable company to provide snow plowing for the long winter months in Ottawa.
Majority of the times snow removal companies keep signing contracts even though they know they can’t keep up with the work load. In other words sign the contract get paid half up front and we’ll do what we can. Is it fair for the business owners to pay half up front and not get the snow removed on time? I don’t think it is fair. It happens every year where the property or the business owner rushes to get that contract signed and get screwed along the way.
I am a business owner too and I only take what I can complete. No point for me to take the extra work away from the others who needs it the most and mess it up for the customer and for myself. I have one advise to all the business owners, ” stop being greedy”
It’s not a pizzeria where the cook can make hundreds of pizzas in an hour. If it snows for 24 hours non stop all the clients will be waiting for u at the same time.
Always shop around, trust your instincts, be reasonable and get your moneys worth. Don’t think of smaller companies any less than the well established ones. They were small back in the days too remember.
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.
