We offer a wide variety of choices and styles of shingles and other materials to meet your roofing needs and protect your largest investment.  Not only do we offer a large selection of choices in materials, we also offer a thorough assessment of your roofing system including its ventilation system to ensure all work meets or exceeds Ontario Building Codes, and are properly ventilated for optimal energy efficiency in your attic space, plus longevity of your new roof.

 

AZ Roofing is a certified installer of several top manufacturers of shingle roofing systems which ensures we are taking care of not only the outer materials that you see, but also the underlying roofing system performance to ensure what we complete lasts a long time.

 

What we look for and our approach includes:

  • Ensuring the roof structure underneath your shingles is structurally sound and without rot and mould.  Multiple layers of shingles will add to the stress and we always take into account heavy snowfall to ensure your roof structure can handle the extra load
  • Missing shingles? High winds?  We know that once your shingles start to curl, it’s much easier for winds to start lifting and ripping shingles off your roof.  We look for signs of deterioration such as curling and missing shingles as well as the number of layers to provide you with a better assessment on the health of your roof
  • Looking out for underlayments and ice and water shields and replacing metal flashing for added protection.  If you’ve got a leak, we know what are the best practices for preventing leaks and it’s critical for many roofs to have the right underlayment and ice and water shields in the most vulnerable parts of the roof
  • Educated in architectural theories, we not only look at the roof, we also look at the surrounding systems and areas including
    • Adequate and proper ventilation to meet the latest building codes is a requirement most roofing contractors do not provide - most roofers only replace exactly what they see and do not realize your existing roof is under-ventilated and will not meet the new building codes
    • Proper eavestroughs and downspouts to quickly channel water away from your home - most houses were built with inadequate eavestrough and downspouts causing premature deterioration of shingles in localized areas

How to get started?

  1. First things first, you are already educating yourself, so that’s a great first step.  There are a lot of details in roofing so it’s best to take the next steps with an expert who can walk you through the rest of the steps.
  2. Determine what type of roof do you have?  Sloped, or Flat, or a mix of both? Is your property residential or commericial?No worries.  AZ Roofing can help you with any of those kinds of roofs and applications

If you have a sloped roof, do you already have an idea of the type of materials you are interested in reviewing?

Do you prefer shingles, or would you consider metal, copper, cedar or slate?

 

Unmatched natural beauty of Slate Roof Installations

Slate Roofs are unmatched in their natural beauty and has been used for centuries.  You can find slate roofs on many older heritage buildings and homes and will notice these statement roofs as eye-catching renditions of earlier times.  It has been a popular choice of material for not only its looks, but it’s ability to last - in many cases, over a century or more!

What the benefits of a Slate Roof?

  • Exceptional beauty unmatched by other materials
  • Durability and longevity - with roofs that have lasted over 150 years, we are not filling our landfill frequently with roofing materials
  • Fire resistant since slate is made of rock and a natural material and environmentally friendly

Slate Roofs aren’t for every home though - since they are made of stone, they tend to be heavier, and may require additional work on your roof to ensure they are able to take the additional weight load effectively.

Lastly, how do you choose the right contractor?

  • Look for those with the right credentials and expertise to ensure your job is done with the highest quality in workmanship at a reasonable price. You should always look for:
  • Valid WSIB
  • Liability Insurance
  • Written quote
  • Professional in-home estimate
  • Underlayment, ice and water, new metal flashings should be included in sloped roof quotes
  • Full assessment on ventilation needs and concerns
