2. Can my leaking roof be repaired or will it need to be replaced?
There are any number of causes that create a leaking roof. The best action to take is to have one of our professonial roofers from North American Roofing identify the source of the problem and repair the leak as soon as possible. A puncture, loose flashing, wind damage, freeze and thaw cycles and blistering are just a few of the things that can cause a leak to develop. In many cases your roof can be repaired quickly and inexpensively. Roofs do wear out and should be replaced when they do.
3. How long will a new tar and gravel roof last?
There are multiple factors that determine how long a tar and gravel roof will last. These include the quality of the iniital installation, the quality of the materials, the environment, regular maintenance and the effectiveness of your attic ventilation system. A new tar and gravel roof normally lasts between 10 and 20 years.
4. How long does it take to remove and install a new tar and gravel roof?
For an average size home without any unforeseen complications (rotten boards to be replaced, attic ventilation problems, etc.) the removal of the old roof and installation of a new roof is generally completed in one day (weather permitting). Should the work take longer than one day, we’ll make the roof weather tight before leaving the worksite.
North American Roofing crews work on only one project at a time, completing each project in it’s entirity before leaving the site.
5. Who does the estimate?
Our customers appreciate that North American Roofing sends an experienced roofer, not a salesman to do estimates. This ensures that you recieve an accurate quote based on solving your roofing problem and not a one-size fits all quote from a salesman.
Our estimates are free and include checking the condition of the roof, drainage system, the flashing around the chimney(s), vent pipes, skylights as well as the ventilation system.
To schedule a free estimate of your roof complete the form to the right or call us at 514-935-2730. You will notice the difference.
6. What is North American Roofing’s warranty?
We back our newly installed roofs with a 10 year workmanship guarantee.
7. Is it necessary to remove all of the old roof?
For a quality installation of a replacement roof, it is necessary to remove all of the old roof covering and start with a clean and stable surface. We recommend you avoid hiring any roofing company that says you can save money by having a new roof installed on top of an old roof.
8. Do you have references?
Yes we do. See Our Clients Say it Best page.
