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 is the cost of a new roof? A typical Edmonton roof costs approximately $6,000 to over $10,000, depending on the size of the roof, the pitch, and the quality of the roofing material. Please read this page for detailed information.

What is the lifespan of a new roof? Asphalt roofs last for 17 to 25 years. Weather conditions such as temperature swings, extreme cold, wind storms, hail storms, rains, heat and UV rays radiations will shorten the lifespan of an asphalt roof. 

Is rubber roof the best? Euroshield rubber roofing system costs more than an average asphalt roof but it offers more benefits that worth the money. Once installed, they will last for 50 years. 

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. 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. 

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 lower if you replace the skylight and the roof together. 

How long will a roof replacement take? Usually 2 or 3 days. Complex roofs can take weeks.

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 20 to 25 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.
