For decades, the "tar-and-gravel" roof was the standard for the residential flat-roof homeowner. With the advent of newer roofing materials, colour choices and ease of application, the homeowner has more choices. The homeowner here has chosen a Modified Bitumen roofing material for application over there converted garage. Before you invest in your next roof, call Grand Valley Roofing & Coatings Inc. to discuss your options.
More and more flat roof homeowners are turning away from the traditional Built Up Roof (BUR) to alternate flat roofing materials. This owner chose a fully adhered EPDM roof for his carport and overhang. In less than a day his old roofing material was removed and a new long-lasting roof was applied.
Cottages and mobile homes also need new roofs and repairs. Often new materials can be applied to your old roof that gives better protection and lasts longer.

Flat roofs, car ports, garages, verandas and walkable decks are particularly difficult for the average homeowner to tackle. There are issues with flashing, seams, vents and ridges. Also, completing the drains can be difficult. For these reasons, it is recommended that professionals complete you flat roof and decks.
Skylight installation has become a more common practice as a way of providing light to make rooms feel larger and airier. Whether as new construction or retrofitted, the method is basically the same. The hole must be cut and framed, the roof material cut back, the underlayment put down, the bottom and step flashing needs to be installed, and finally one needs to complete the installation of the solid flashing pieces that ensures no water leaks into the house.
Capping, siding, soffit and eavestrough are a very important component of your home. They protect your house from the elements but it also add to its appeal. Siding comes in many colours, styles and materials. While the roof is being replaced, it is a good opportunity to upgrade your metal work. Often overlooked in importance is the gutter system (eavestrough) and capping of flat roofs which protects your home from the effects of water damage.
