Ask the Roofing Experts
What are your payment options?
Need roofing in Carleton Place, Kanata, or anywhere else in Greater Ottawa? Once you’ve decided to move forward with your roofing project, in order to get started we require payment of 20% down and 80% upon completion of project.
What part of Ottawa do you serve?
Armour Home Solutions offers roofing in Carleton Place, Kanata, Barrhaven, Ottawa, and Orleans. We also service all towns and municipalities within a two hour radius of Ottawa, in Ontario.
What is the best roof for the Ottawa area?
All our roofs are installed to last. However, if we had to choose, we prefer to use metal shingles. Metal shingles look great, last a lifetime, resist all weather elements and are very comparable in price.
How do you know when an asphalt shingle roof is in need of replacement?
There are several clues to look for, but the biggest one is age. If your roof is more than 20 years old it’s highly likely it is in need of replacement. Younger roofs can still fail too due to faulty manufacturing or installation, so it’s a good idea to have a professional roofer inspect your roof at least once a year.
If my roof already has two layers of shingles, can a third be installed or do I need to re-roof?
Yes, you need to re-roof. One shingle layer is always preferable, although two is still acceptable. A single layer looks better, lasts longer, and won’t put any unnecessary extra weight on the roof.
What should I look for in a roofing warranty?
There are two types of coverage you should look for in your warranty. You need coverage against manufacturing defects on materials, as well as coverage against workmanship errors. Our Greater Ottawa and Carleton Place roofing experts offer a ten year workmanship warranty covering any installation deficiencies at no cost to the customer. We also use only the best products on your home which carry a minimum ten year manufacturer’s warranty guarantee and up to a lifetime warranty with qualifying shingles and accessories.
