Not to long ago a local roofing contractor in Ottawa got sentenced to 71 days in jail and thousands of dollars of fines. How to choose the right contractor? First of all if the contractor has been in the business for a long time he would have a web site, business registration number, hst number, a truck with decals indicating which company with a phone number.
If an unmarked truck arrives at your door to do an estimate for a new roof be sure write down his plate # if you are going to give him a deposit.
If you decide to give a deposit be sure to get a receipt with all the company info including hst number, phone number, make and model of their truck.

A deposit should be around 25% of the job. If the contractor asks for more than that please refuse it.
I am a Ottawa Roofing Contractor and only time I ask for deposit is when all the material is on the roof or on site. This way my customers see that all the materials have been paid for out of my pocket and I am ready to complete the job.
Always ask around to family members for a Trusted Roofing Contractors in Ottawa they may know.

Cheap doesn’t necessarily mean quality or good. Always understand the quote or the estimate that was given to you by the contractor. Be sure to make it clear to your contractor about any additional work that is required to be approved by you so you wont be shocked with the final invoice.

 


Roof Snow Removal – Calculate Your Snow Load

Is there a way to calculate the weight of the snow and  ice that is parked on your roof? Yes there is.Winter is here and it’s time to think about your Roof Snow Removal. Just how important is shoveling off your roof after a snow storm? Here are a few statistics to help you decide when it’s time to drag out the ladder.

How much does snow weight? A square foot of snow 1? deep weights 1.25 pounds. So if you have 20 inches of snow, you’ve got a 25lbs/ sq ft snow load on your roof. Ice weights 5.2lbs per sq ft so be sure to factor this in.

Most roofs can withstand around 40lbs/sq ft of snow load, while some older roofs and manufactured homes start to show damage around 30lbs/sq ft.

What’s worse than your roof buckling under the weight of the snow? Falling off it while shoveling after slipping on the stuff. Be careful! Hire a contractor if you’d like to avoid the risks.
