The most important part of starting any roofing project is COMMUNICATION. It is important for us to answer your questions truthfully and explain our process entirely in order to meet and exceed your expectations. Below are few common questions we are often asked as Ottawa Roofing Experts.
Will we park vehicles and keep equipment on your driveway?
Yes, in order to replace your roof, we require access to your driveway for the duration of installation. This provides easy access for disposing of the shingles from the roof, this also saves your vehicles from being damaged or having nails in your tires. Even though our teams clean up everyday there may be some long days that a few nails remain around the dump trailer in the driveway. If you do not have a driveway or wish for us to not use the driveway that can be arranged, however it is likely the lack of access will cost extra.
What do we begin and end work each day?
Normal roofing hours are 7:00 AM until 5:00 PM. There are times when our teams might stay until dark (9:00 PM) if they are close to completing the job. On that same note there may be days in July and August that the teams will take an extended break between 11 and 4 in order to avoid heat stroke. However, your personal schedule is a priority for us. We try to never be a distraction to your family or business so just let us know what time schedule is comfortable for you and we are able to make adjustments.
Do we clean up at the end of each day?
Absolutely! Our guys are all fully trained and understand the importance of of meticulous clean up.
What happens if it rains during the installation?
Our teams are trained to follow strict protocol. Once we remove the shingles from one section of your roof, that section is immediately covered with underlays (6 Feet of Ice and Water protector from all eaves, Synthetic Underlay the remainder). This ensures there are no exposed wood sections. A home can have only underlays as a roof system and remain water tight for at least 60 days.
