How To Tie In A Flat roof With A Shingle Roof

This latest project was in early December in Lambeth Ontario for a residential home that had an existing sloped or shingled roof that needed to tie into a new flat roof that we had created. This one took a lot of work, we had to clean off the snow and then melt the snow and get the roof dry so we could work on it! We had to remove 2 courses of shingles so that we could create the transition […]

Save money by doing one half of roof per season

This project is a little different than others we have done before. At Legacy Roofs, we are a family orientated company, and we know what it’s like to live on a tight budget. Something that we like to offer our clients as a way to save money yet still get quality work done is to have half of a roof done one season, and then save up to have the other half done. It’s a way we serve our clients […]

East London Ontario How to tie in flat roof and shingle roof

This week we were in the East end of London Ontario at a residential home. The client had a couple of issues that needed attention. One section of their shingled roof had been leaking, due to aged shingles, and a poor slope on their roof, which was causing piles of snow to sit on the roof, as well as have water freeze and lift the shingles. Another issue was that their flat roof section needed to be repaired and replaced, […]

Dundas Auto Repair London Ontario

We have been called in to a mechanic called Dundas Auto Repair in London Ontario for a flat roof repair. The client had been experiencing some roof leaks and so we were called it to get it fixed.

An easy project but a necessary one […]

Pharmacy EPDM Roof System – Photos

This job was for a client who owns a pharmacy in downtown London Ontario. The client was experiencing all sorts of leaks in each of the four sections of roof in their building. We were asked to provide a quote keeping low costs in mind. Our recommendation was a EPDM system instead of a peel and stick like you normally see in our jobs. Doing this job saves the client a ton of money as we don’t have to remove […]

First you must have the base sheet installed, then get a long section of flashing and cut out some triangle shaped pieces based on where you want the angle (see the video for more details). The flashing should be able to fold into itself based on the amount of space you cut out for […]

Clinton Commercial/Residential Project Photos

This latest project was for the owner of a 3 storey commercial/residential building who was having some issues with water leaking in through the old roof system.

Check out the video of the project here. Legacy Flat Roofing & Sheet Metal – Serving all of SouthWestern […]
