Ice and water leaking into shingle and flat roof in London Ontario

We were out at a home in London Ontario, where we have a flat roof tying into two shingled roof sections of a residential home. This job made us scratch our head a little, a roofing contractor who had been on the site previous had installed shingles on the flat roof section. Sadly, this isn’t the first time we have had to fix this sort of problem before. Needless to say, the flat roof section was not doing it’s job […]

Flat Roof Canopy London Ontario

We are in London Ontario this week, working on a small section of roof, a canopy at the front of a home. Its a very small section of roof, but with some interesting details to it. The railing and the metal flashing on the front edge of the canopy is copper, so we had to work around it instead of removing it and putting it back on as we didn’t want to disturb the great detail. There was also a […]

Re-Roof Flat Roof project London Ontario

This week we had a small project on a residential house in the East side of London, Ontario. There were two flat roof sections, one on the front of the house covering the porch, around 200sqft, and then a back section covering some interior space, 4ff x 20ft. On the front section we placed a separation layer between the old roof surface and the new roof. There were some wet sections of plywood so we cut that out and replaced […]

New Flat Roof substrate installation in Belmont Ontario

While the weather was still good this fall we were out in Belmont Ontario at a residential home. The client had a flat roof system on the back of their house, the old roof was made from metal panels, but after years of hard weather the roof was deteriorating and something needed to be done. Upon our first inspection of the roof we recommended keeping the old roof system intact, as attempting to remove it could cause more issues for […]

New Flat Roof Installation Sarnia Ontario

This week we did a two day job on a 800sqft flat roof in Sarnia Ontario. It’s a simple install, but with a lot of details, including drains, flashing and vent details. We had to install a new roof on the entire roof, but fortunately for the customer, upon our inspection of the roof (we offer roof inspections as a service), the insulation underneath the roof was dry so all we had to do was clean the roof off, get […]

How to waterproof and prevent ice and snow getting through metal flashing

We like to reuse metal siding if its in good condition because it saves clients a lot of money by not making an unnecessary decision to replace the metal. Some roofing companies just tuck the membrane underneath the flashing and they don’t remove it. We carefully remove the old metal siding, make sure the pieces are labelled so they can be easily reinstalled. You can see in the video how we have taken the drip flashing off. Then we put […]

Save money on flat roof repair Sarnia Ontario

I brought my special helper along for the ride with me this time (make sure you leave him a comment to say hi!). We were working on a regular 4ply built up roof with pea stones on it. The client had been complaining that the roof was allowing water into their house, they originally thought it was a leak in the […]

Flat Roof Sarnia Ontario (shingle and flat roof tie in)

Our latest project was a residential home in Sarnia Ontario. This home had a sloped shingled roof, and then on the back of the house was a flat roof with a slight taper off to the back of the house. The detailed work needed was a shingle and flat roof tie in, as well as a new ridge cap and some new metal drip flashing. The old flat roof was in decent enough shape for us to leave it in […]

Mount Brydges Ontario Dual Level Flat Roof Repair

This is a residential home in Mount Brydges in SouthWestern Ontario. It was a multi level roof, with two 300sqft sections of flat roof. The client had been complaining that the roof was letting moisture into their home and they needed us to come in and solve their issues fast! On the lower level water had been coming through the kitchen through a light fixture, so we were asked to conduct an inspection and make a recommendation. We checked the […]
