I had a hard time finding a roofing company to inspect my 4-story townhouse, but these guys did it with a drone! Not only that but they found that it was my attached neighbours who had the problem with falling shingles and mine were secure. I am so happy I went with this company for the peace of mind, and they were honest enough to tell me that my shingles were good. If you want to deal with professionals who find solutions not just more problems – this is the right place.
The reviews speak for themselves!! and definitely not exaggerated! Darwin and his Crew are professionals who respect the home owners time and property, they do in-fact do a professional job without cutting corners! and go above and beyond to ensure that your roof or any other anomalies are outlined/communicated to the home owner. You want a piece of mind to fix a leaky roof and finding the root cause! I do! Definitely will use them again! Thank you once again for the great work 🙂

We had Darwin from AZ roofing fix a leak in our roof. He was professional and very knowledgeable in his work. He took the time to explain what was causing the issue and quickly fixed it for us. I would recommend them for anyone looking at getting any work done to their roof.

Built Up Tar and Gravel Flat Roofing for Commercial and Industrial

When people think of flat roofs, they tend to think of the old fashioned Built Up Tar and Gravel roofs as these are still quote common, and the most traditional flat roofing style. These roofs have between 4-5 layers of asphalt based organic paper held together with layers of hot asphalt (tar). Installation can get quite messy for these roofs as it involves large hot kettles which need to be safely transported to the roof top. The last layer added are the pea-sized granules which helps protect the tar from UV rays.

These roofs may be mechanically fastened, or adhered to. Plus, the seams of these roofs are heat welded.

Why buy this type?

  • For those who prefer time tested, tried and true systems, this is a traditional type and style of flat roof
  • This type of roof will cost less than the other flat roofing options

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
