Vinyl siding is an affordable way of making your old home loo new again. There are many different styles and colors to choose from. Best way to match colors is to choose 2 opposite tone colors to blend into each other.

If the entire home is white color siding all around, there will be no distraction of any when looking at the house. White corner pieces and beige or sand color siding will look amazing. White is the color to go for the corners and the j-trim/channels. White will expose all the corners, doors, windows etc…Metal and aluminum siding repairs are much harder to do because of the discontinued models and styles. Vinyl siding seems to be the new trend.

Frozen Flat Roofs

Today we responded to an emergency flat roof problem in the east-end. Store manager was disappointed and tired of chasing the original roofing company who installed the roof. It was in the late afternoon and thunder-storm alert was issued.

We examined the water damage from inside to pin point the possible location of the leak but nothing added up. Original leak was coming in from the second story and working its way all the way to the main floor. We noticed the water dripping by the duct-work on the second story and went up on the roof. Roof drain was very close to the entry location so we were assuming the problem was the drain but it just didnt make sense how the water was going onto the duct-line. After inspecting the entire roof we did find some overlapping seems that did not have any bleed marks from the torch. Torch-down membrane must have a 1/4 inch bleed-out indicating that fusion is complete and it is now one piece.  Found the location of the drain from inside the building and there was no signs of water or moisture. Because the building was all cut-up it was kind of confusing where everything was located on the roof. Once we figured out where everything was located on the roof, it was obvious that there was an issue with the A/C unit.

I have seen this happen before where the ac unit bleeder gets clogged and water works its way in the building. As soon as i removed the pvc bleeder water was gushing out of the ac unit. This pvc pipe is designed to build pressure for the pump to force all the condensation and water out of the unit. Trap was clogged from all dirt and debris and water pooled up inside the ac unit and started to leak inside. We cleaned the trap and installed it back i its place. It took almost 5 minutes to leak to stop. Knowing that there was 5 ac units were up on the roof, we cleaned all 5 traps and installed it back in its place.

Poor maintenance of your roof and anything that is located on your roof is a potential cause for leaks. Always replace the ac filters regularly and clean out the pvc traps to avoid similar problems. Check all drains to make sure it is not clogged from dirt and debris. Always hire a professional to do the job.

It’s not the shingles that go bad every so often, it’s the improper intake and exhaust system that is not performing like it supposed to. If the temperature in your attic is much different from outside, that is a perfect sign.

An attic that is not venting properly could cause many problems during summer and winter to your roof and to your pocket if you ask me. Lack of ventilation causes ice damming and condensation during winter months and it can get ugly. During summer months your attic will act like a furnace cooking the certain areas of your home. Your roof shingles are always under the sun and it is designed to expand and shrink depending on the temperature. When there is lack of ventilation that can be caused by improper intake system which is referred to your soffit that is designed to allow the fresh air to enter your attic and balance the temperature.

Anyone can replace a roof but not everyone is willing to make your roofing system to perform like it should. Many times the homeowners would think that we are trying to up sell the product.

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.
