Roofing FAQ 

How do you measure my roof? We use the Eagleview technology to measure your roof. The roof measurements report from Eagleview features accurate 3D diagrams. The report calculates roof length, pitch, and additional features on residential and commercial properties and includes a summary page with waste calculation.

What if the Eagleview did not measure my roof correctly? It is extremely unlikely. But if the Eagleview measured your roof larger than it is, we will invoice you less accordingly. If the Eagleview measured your roof smaller than it is, we will not increase the cost for you. 

What is the cost of a new roof? A typical Edmonton roof costs approximately $6,000 to over $15,000. Please read this page for detailed information.

What is the lifespan of a new roof? Asphalt roofs last for 15 to 30 years. Weather conditions such as temperature swings, extreme cold, wind storms, hail storms, rains, UV rays radiations will shorten the lifespan of an asphalt roof. 

Is rubber roof the best? Euroshield rubber roofing system costs much more than an average asphalt roof but it offers great benefits that worth the money.

Does color affect the lifespan of a roof? Yes. Black asphalt roofing shingles will absorb all wavelengths of light and converts them into heat, so the shingles will get very warm. Roofing shingles will degrade with heat and other environmental factors with time. 

My shingle warranty is for 50 years. What does that mean? The "50 years" describe the Shingle Warranty Period. The shingle warranty period should not be confused with the lifespan of a new roof. 

Do you replace gutters? Yes, we offer additional services such as gutters replacement, soffit & fascia, and skylights replacement. 

Do you repair a leaky skylight? No. We strongly encourage homeowners to replace the skylight with the roof replacement. 

What is metal flashing? Metal flashing is a transitional material used on exterior walls and roofs. It is usually made from galvanized/painted metal and is in an L-shape. Metal flashings can effectively block water sipping into your home. Below the picture shows some metal flashings.

Can I replace the skylight without replacing the entire roof? Yes. But the overall cost is much lower if you replace the skylight and the roof together. 

How long will a roof replacement take? 2 or 3 days for an average-sized roof. 

Do you clean the job site? Yes, every day. 

I have a skylight. Should I replace it with my new roof replacement? Skylight typically lasts for 20 years. When your skylight is reaching that age, it is a good idea to replace it along with your new roof replacement. 

Do you have insurance and WCB coverage? We carry a 5-million business liability insurance as well as WCB coverages for each worker. 

Is there a downpayment required? No. There is no downpayment required.
