Ottawa roofing companies are moving towards more durable and eco-friendly roofing methods
Over the years in Ottawa, roofing technology has become more advanced. There was a time when all that humans had to make a roof was sticks and leaves. Today we have an abundance of roofing options to meet every need. People no longer only have asphalt shingles to choose from, you can customize your roof to fit your liking. Ottawa roofing companies offer a wide variety of styles, designs and products. If your roof needs replacing or repair or you just need some advice, contact an Ottawa roofing company.
For many years asphalt shingling was the go-to roofing style for Ottawa roofing companies. Asphalt shingling is affordable, light-weight, easy to maintain and aesthetically pleasing, though it also has a few draw backs. Asphalt shingles can become brittle in cold temperatures, and can lift in hot temperatures. This makes the shingles more susceptible to cracks and damage.
On the other end of the spectrum is metal shingling, which is significantly more expensive, but may ultimately be worth it in the long run. Most metal roofs are made of either aluminum or steel, which are both extremely durable materials that can easily withstand our harsh Canadian winters and blistering summers. A metal roof on average will last 50 times longer than an asphalt roof, and is more eco-friendly than asphalt roofing.
Another style that Ottawa roofing companies are seeing become more popular is flat roofing. Flat roofs are often made of modified bitumen or Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EDPM).This style of roofing is energy efficient, pleasing to the eye and cost-effective. There are many choices; you just have to figure out which style is right for you.
