Where should i begin?

As we all know timberline is a brand if shingle manufacturer like iko, crc, bp, certenteed or owens corning. There is a huge difference in price, warranty bs and the other products.

In order to get a warranty from timberline you have to use their shingles plus 3 other qualified roofing products from timberline like ice and water shield, felt, starters or the caps. With all the other manufacturers there isn’t a major scam like timberlines to sell you more. For example competitor ice and water shield comes in 80 feet rolls but timberline only offers 65 feet for the same price. Caps for the competitor comes in 63 pieces in a bundle for 19.99 but timberline offers 45 pieces for 35.97. Starter strips for the competitor is 19.99 but for timberline 35.00 dollars. Also timberline shingles are way over priced than the competitors for the same warranty. Competitor offers 15 years iron-glad protection but timberline only offers 10 years. We are talking about the same lifetime warranty shingles here. Competitor offers 2 inch space to place the nails but timberline gives you a straight line to nail onto if you don’t warranty is void and it will blow of the wind storm and they will blame the contractor of course who else.

So in other words you pay more to get less with timberline while other Canadian manufacturers like IKO or CRC gives back more but you pay less. I refuse to sell or install timberline products in Ottawa, Ontario. I do not want to over charge my customers to support economy somewhere else. I am a proud Canadian and i will only sell what helps our economy grow. I love Canada and i will do my best to help our economy grow.

If you live in Ottawa and the valley you must have seen the layers of snow and freezing rain combination. Sometimes you may think there is a problem with your roof but actually it’s the unpredictable weather that we are having.

If your house is a bungalow and has more than average number of valleys on your roof, get prepared for the snow and ice build up during winter. Any house or building can have ice dams or more than average snow build up.
If you ask what causes ice dams i can explain it briefly. There are many reasons behind ice dams and it changes from house to house. If there is not enough fresh air in your attic, it can build condensation and turn into ice dams. If your vents are covered with snow and attic air is not venting out, it will help ice dams to form. If you have poor ventilation it will definitely form ice dams. Number of vents and amount of vented soffits must be balanced, if your attic is not same or close to temperature outside, it will help the ice dam. If you are not sure what it is or need an advise from a professional, contact your local Ottawa Roofers and they will be more than happy to consult you about your needs.

It is always in your best interest to maintain whats yours. You may have to do roof inspection once a year to be on the safe side. Your roof protects you and you should do the same in return and maintain it. Hire a roofing contractor to remove all the snow and ice dam off your roof before spring or you may be facing a bigger issue if there isn’t any ice and water shield or felt paper. Now days builders are saving nickles and dimes.  I have not seen one house yet with ice and water shield or felt paper all around. But that’s where i take over and do it right.

It is very important to have your gutters cleaned prior to every winter. If there is proper ventilation, drip edge, ice and water shield from the gutters are in place and also if the down spouts are clean you can consider yourself safe. But if there are valleys involved you might consider getting the access snow and ice removed before thaw starts.
