There are a lot of variables in determining how much a new roof will cost, such as the pitch of the roof, roofs with a really low slope or a really steep slope will be a lot more expensive than a standard slope roof. The number of sections on the roof is also going to be a big factor in the cost, a 2 sided roof will be much cheaper than a roof that has 6,10,15, or more sections to it. Lastly, what type of materials you are using on the roof, and if you want to add upgrades will affect the price of your roof. With all that being said, a basic roof should cost around $5000-$6000.
There are a few factors to think about when you’re deciding whether or not to get a roof replacement done. You will want to think about how old the roof is, looking for signs of granule loss on the shingles, are the corners of the shingles curling up, do the shingles flap in the wind, is the roof leaking? All of these things may be signs that it's time to get your roof replaced. Ask us about a roof inspection.
Much like the cost of a roof, it varies, for our basic roofs you can expect them to be completed in 1 or 2 days. For roofs that are steep or having lots of sections or upgrades it could take substantially longer. Our project manager will be able to give you more of an accurate expectation on how long your specific job will take.
While all the major manufacturers offer “limited lifetime” warranties on their shingles, realistically we can expect an average roof to last about 25 years. That being said, there are a couple of factors that come to play, if you have lots of debris falling onto your roof from trees in the neighbourhood, it may deteriorate faster or if your roof is in the shade for a good portion of the day it may last substantially longer.
Much like any construction site, you can expect a lot of noise, as well as garbage and debris. We are moving heavy bundles of shingles around on the rooftop and so there will be a lot of vibration in the house. It is a good idea to take down any photos or paintings while the project is underway, so they don’t bounce off the walls and break. If the project will take more than one day we always strive to ensure the yard is somewhat cleaned up at the end of every day and do a walk around with our magnetic sweeper in an attempt to make sure the roofing nails have all been picked up. Once the roof is completed all of our garbage and debris will be cleaned up as well.

When choosing a roofing company to take care of your project, there are a couple of things to think about. Make sure they have current liability insurance as well as WorkSafeBC insurance. If they don’t have insurance and someone falls off the roof or got hurt, or there’s damage to yours, or your neighbours property you will be held liable for damages. What do other people say about them? Check to make sure they have a good reputation in the community, either by google reviews or social media activity. Do they have credentials or any type of recommendation from the shingle manufacturer? What kind of workmanship warranty do they offer, and will they be around in 2,5, or 10 years to honour those warranties? Are they registering warranties with the shingle manufacturers for you? This is just a few things to think about when deciding on what company you should hire for your project.
