Residential Roofing in Ottawa

Whether you are shopping for a contractor to add a roof to your new home or want to replace, repair or maintain your existing roof: the residential roofing contractors at Kovar Roofing got you covered! We are experts in all aspects of Ottawa residential roofing.

Residential Re-Roofing

Sometimes, a roof can be in relatively good shape, but its shingles are getting old and don’t look their best anymore. In that case, you have essentially two options. You can either opt to re-cover your roof although that is mostly a cosmetic solution and not all that helpful. Alternatively, you can choose to re-roof. Re-roofing recovers or replaces an existing roof covering. One big upside to re-roofing is that the roofing professionals will also be able to see damage underneath the first layer and fix those issues as well, reinforcing your roof for the long-term. If you are thinking about re-roofing your roof, call the residential re-roofing specialists at Kovar Roofing!

Residential Roof Repair

As roofs are exposed to the elements all the time, it is only natural for them to suffer occasional damages. Whether minor or major damage occurs to your roof, you will want to have it fixed right away: even the smallest leak will eventually grow into a larger issue and threaten the structural integrity of your roof. The experts at Kovar Roofing specialize in residential roof repair and are ready to fix your Ottawa residential roofing.

Residential Roof Maintenance

Most severe damages to a roof can be avoided through regular inspection by residential roofing contractors. An experienced professional can detect small damages or potential weaknesses in your roof and address them right away. Much like with anything else: the better you take care of your roof, the longer it will last.

Common Questions About Residential Roofing

What Re-Roofing Options Do I Have?

Re-Roofing does not necessarily mean to replace your entire existing roof – although that is the better option in most cases. A complete re-roofing allows the roofing experts to check the components underneath the shingles, including the sheathing. It is the pricier option but it may save you money in the long run compared to simply re-covering your existing roof with a new layer of shingles.

How Often Should I Have My Roof Checked?

Your roof requires regular maintenance, just like your car. Ideally, you should have your roof checked by a professional roofer twice a year. Since winter is the longest season in Canada, we recommend having your roof inspected in the fall and the spring. However, if you notice any issues such as leaks or broken shingles, do not wait until the next inspection and contact your roofing professional right away.

How Often Do I Need to Replace My Roof?

It really depends on what type of roof you have, how well it was installed, the quality of the materials, and how well it has been taken care of. On average, common asphalt shingle roofs should last you about 15-20 years, metal roofs around twice that long. Clay tiles can even last an entire lifetime!

When is the Best Time to Replace My Roof?

Much like most construction work, it is ideally done in the warmer and dryer seasons. You can technically also have your roof redone in winter, but be aware that factors like snow, ice, and rain can delay the process.
