Posts Tagged ‘Ottawa Roofers’


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.

I have been in the contracting business for a long time and I have never asked for a fee for providing an estimate. It does add up driving all over town providing free estimates when I have to pay 120$ to fill up my truck every 3 days.

If I were to do estimates for an entire month out of my pocket I can see the increase in air miles or petro points but what kind of investment would it be in the long run? Last year I did 3 jobs in december and they were all from an estimate that was done in march and april. So it is an investment that pays off eventually and I shall never change that policy for offering free estimates within the Ottawa region. I have noticed some companies are trying to charge the customer 100$ for an estimate which will be deducted from their cost of the job but i think that is a cheap marketing technique. Pretty much you are offering that money back to the customer if they choose to go with you. If a company is not offering free estimates, they are missing out.

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.
