Posts Tagged ‘Ottawa Roofing Estimates’


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.

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.
