Roofing Replacement Kitchener
In Ontario, most of the roofing contractors do the legal minimum of the Ontario Building Code when installing roofs. The Code only calls for contractors to install roofs that offer “limited protection” under “normal seasonal conditions.” Since the weather at Kitchener is anything but normal, you need a roofing contractor who only uses roofing solutions from top manufacturers, who has well-trained and accredited roofers, and who is licensed and insured.
At D’Angelo & Sons, we have been replacing roofs since 1978 and in this time we have learned from our successes and mistakes and those of our peers. We will do all the work ourselves – we have a strict policy against subcontracting. Once the roof is up, you will be protected not only by the manufacturer’s warranty, but also by our workmanship warranty which is one of the best in the industry. If you want cost-effective repair solutions without compromising on quality, come to D’Angelo & Sons.
Roof Leaks Kitchener
Our approach to roof leak repair is what makes us stand out from our competitors. It involves not only mending the leak, but also restoring whatever has been damaged and taking measures to prevent future leaks.
We start with a thorough free inspection to pinpoint the problem. We will then use vessels to collect the dripping water even as we fix obvious causes of the leak such as gaping holes on the roof to minimize interior damage. After this, we will find and fix other smaller sources of leaks by observing both the roof and the attic.
Once we are done with fixing the leak, we will do preventive maintenance such as applying a primer on corroded sections of a metal roof or cutting branches that are directly above the roof. Our experts will also advise you on what you can do to increase the longevity of the roof.
Metal Roofs Kitchener
Kitchener has a humid continental climate with warm summers with temperatures up to 30.0 °C and cold winters with temperatures as low as −20 °C. With these extreme temperatures, metal roofs are very popular because of their ability to withstand the harsh conditions. At D’angelo and Sons, we have experience with metal roofs of all kinds.
Aluminum metal roofs are popular in Kitchener because of their light weight, their corrosion resistance, their superior heat reflection (compared to steel), and their low maintenance requirements. We install and repair galvanized steel roofs which are sturdier and heavier than aluminum roofs. Other popular metal roof materials are tin, often treated with a tin and lead coat, and copper. Copper roofs are expensive, but they can last hundreds of years, with most of our suppliers giving lifetime warranties on them.
When you contact us for a new metal roof, we will advise you on what you require based on a 3D model of your home, your budget, and your location.
Flat Roof Repair Kitchener
A flat roof should be installed and repaired by an expert if it is serve you the way it should. Kitchener, like most of Ontario, has extreme weather conditions and an improperly installed and repaired flat roof will cause water damage and other problems. There are many roofing companies in Kitchener, but there are several reasons why we are ahead of the competition.
We have an updated license and WSIB work insurance, which ensures that you are on the safe side in case of an accident during flat roof repairs. Our roofing experts are certified, which ensures your warranties will be honored. We are popular because we do not sub-contract. When you hire us, we will do a FREE inspection to determine what the problem is. With over 30 years of experience and the best workmanship warranty in the world, you can rest assured that your roof is good hands.
Emergency Roof Repair Kitchener
The weather at Kitchener can be unforgiving – you do not want to go a day without a proper roof over your head. In case of damage that compromises your safety or your security or that exposes you to the elements, you need emergency roof repairs.
You could do DIY emergency repairs, but hiring a professional roofing contractor has more benefits. A pro will do the job quicker since he will have the equipment, tools, and supplies needed at hand while you have to buy them yourself. Even if you are handy, you are unlikely to have the necessary expertise to do a good job. At D’Angelo and Sons, we do a thorough inspection before undertaking repairs and even create complete 3D models of your home so we can come up with the best solution.
Hiring a pro is the safer option, it enables you to get workmanship warranty, and it gives you WSIB work insurance.
Cedar Roofs Kitchener
Even with the humid continental climate of Kitchener that is characterized by large seasonal differences with cold, occasionally very cold winters and warm, humid summers, cedar roofs still have impressive longevity. At D’angelo & Sons, one of the most common cedar roof repair calls we get is for moss growth removal. Moss growth is common because of Kitchener’s temperature extremes, particularly the rain and the snowfall.
You should get rid of moss because it retains moisture which can seep through the roof, causing damp patches along the inside of your walls. Moss layering also compromises the durability and the aesthetics of the roof, giving a dilapidated appearance.
Our moth removal solutions involves using metal brushes and metallic scrappers to remove the moss, covering the scraped areas with weatherproof metallic strips, securing the strips using nails, and spraying the roof with fungicidal solutions. Other than the fungicide, we also use treated metal strips to completely neutralize all moss growth.
Attic Ventilation Kitchener
In Kitchener, you need attic venting to maintain a cold roof temperature, which prevents the formation of ice dams that are created by melting snow. It also vents out moisture that moves from a conditioned attic. In the summer, venting is important because it expels solar-heated hot air from the attic and the roof, effectively reducing the strain of the AC system and saving money on utility costs.
Attic ventilation should be done by a professional. An inexperienced person will just punch a few holes in the ceiling and fill them with recessed lights that lead air or stuff mechanical systems with air handlers and an array of ductwork. This is recipe for the formation of ice dams in winter months and humidity problems in winter months. Duct sealing is bound to cause at least 5% leakage, no matter how diligent you are.
The team at D’Angelo and Sons has the training, experience, tools, and equipment needed to do proper attic ventilation.
Asphalt Roofing Kitchener
Kitchener, like the rest of Ontario, has extreme weather conditions characterized by hot summers, cold winters, strong winds, and snow buildup. This climate requires strong roofing – and asphalt shingles are just the thing.
Asphalt shingles are durable with most manufacturers giving 20 years to lifetime warranties. The tie lock or T lock mechanisms mean water resistance. Fiberglass shingles have class A fire resistance while organic shingles have class C rating.
Asphalt roofs are also resistant to algae, with most manufacturers offering 5 to 10 year warranties against algae growth. These roofs are also solar reflecting for reduced air conditioning costs, have varying degrees of wind resistance, and UL 2218 Class 4 shingles have good hail damage resistance. Asphalt shingles also come in different shapes and textures, meaning there is something for everyone, are recyclable, are very cost-effective, and are simple to install and maintain.
At D’Angelo and Sons, we install and repair asphalt shingles. We will give you a FREE inspection and advise you on what works given your particular circumstances.
