After the foundation, the roof is the most important part of your home. Ensuring your roof functions properly will prevent unnecessary expenses in the future. There is no point waiting until there is water damage in your interior walls. Contact the Master Roofers of Belgrave for roof installation, repair, maintenance and inspection.
Choosing a good contractor to install the roof is just as important as selecting quality materials. Any worker has the ability to drive a nail through a shingle, but if that's all it took to install shingles properly, Master Roofers of Belgrave would not be replacing roofs installed by others after only a couple of years.
Our roofing experts will assist you in selecting a roof that meets your needs for style, durability, colour, texture and cost.
Built Up Roofs (BUR) – Asphalt & Gravel
Built-up roofing (asphalt and gravel roofing) has been used for more than 100 years and is extremely durable. BUR offers the added protection of redundant multiple layers and performs well in extremes of heat, cold, wind, and snow. Built-up roofs are also easy to repair.
At Belgrave, we take pride in our work. Every built-up roof or asphalt and gravel roof is approached in steps.
1. We move the existing layers of roofs to the bare wood decking.
2. We install a wood fibre or tentest sheathing over the entire surface.
3. We install the layers of felt paper, each completely mopped in hot asphalt.
4. All parapet walls are stripped with paper as well as special asphalt cotton mesh.
5. All plumbing vents, drains, boxes and flashings are made in house.
6. We spread a flood coat and gravel.
During the completion of the roof, digital photos are taken of each step. You'll receive a CD with full colour photographs included with the invoice on every BUR project. That way, you'll see the quality of our work, every step of the way.
Asphalt roofing shingles are among the most affordable and most durable roofing materials available. They are the most popular choice of residential roof material in Canada for many reasons:
Traditional, Laminated or Architectural shingles add character, colour and depth to the roof and your home.
Slate is attractive and durable. Slate is a natural stone which is quarried from the earth. When installed properly, slate roofs require little maintenance and offer a long roof life. Slate roofs have a rich, colourful, hand-crafted look that greatly adds to the overall appearance of a home. A slate roof could be considered to be a lifetime roof as this quality system can exceed 75 years of service life. At Master Roofers of Belgrave, we specialize in repairing and maintaining slate roofs, ridges and aprons.
At Belgrave, we not only install new metal roofs but specialize in repairs and maintenance of existing metal roofs. Our goal is to revive the existing metal roof to keep the original look and value of your home. Antique architectural metal carries a very high value and is extremely expensive to recreate. Metal roofing materials come in a wide variety of styles:
