Ways to Restore Your Roof in Ottawa

A roof restoration in Ottawa is different from a repair.  A restoration project involves the entire roof, not just sections, and is more comprehensive.

It begins with a thorough examination and creating a list of the work to be done.   Then we proceed with replacing any shingles or tiles that are cracked or broken.  We look at even the smallest of cracks to prevent future damage.  Any loose tiles are reseated.  Any ridge capping is completed.  After a power wash, the roof will improve the overall appearance of your home because all of the dirt, mold, or moss is removed.  After that protective coatings and seals are applied to extend the life of the roof.  If desired, we can repaint the tiles.


By restoring your roof now, you prevent leaks into your attic and other parts of your home.  It will maintain the effectiveness longer and is less expensive than a full replacement.

Better seals means less chance of air seeping through into the house.  It is an energy saving measure that you will appreciate when it comes time to paying utility bills.

Ecology comes into play again because you are not loading up the landfill with used roofing materials.

Your home will be safer and the appearance will be greatly improved.  That means more curb appeal and an increase in the value of your property.

It will signal to your neighbours that you care about the area and are willing to maintain your house in good condition to keep the immediate area looking nice.

Extending the life of your roof will cost less than a full replacement.  It also prevents interior damage.


It is difficult to estimate how long a roof will last, whether restored or original.  A general idea is that it will extend the life by at least a decade.

The time it takes to restore a roof depends on the amount of work that needs to be completed.  The work usually takes about two to four days and is weather dependent.

Noise and Mess

You should expect some disruption in your normal lifestyle.  We do require the property owner to be present during the inspection, but may people find it preferable to be gone during the actual repairs.  While there will be some mess from the debris and power washing, when we leave everything will be clean, clear and neat.

There is inevitably some noise associated with our work.  Most homeowner choose to find it easier to leave for the few days we are working.  It is courteous to notify your neighbours of the work that we will be doing.
