Hire Ottawa Roofing Contractors For The Job
Ottawa roofing contractors will tell you your roof is the single most important element of your house, which protects you and your family from the harsh winter ice, cold and snow, and the heavy spring rains that are inevitable each year as the snow melts. Missing or damaged shingles, crevices and spaces around chimneys and skylights can all lead to reduced efficiency as they present opportunities for heat and energy to escape from your home. As important as it is to keep the heat inside during the winter, when those heavy spring rains come around you’ll be feeling secure knowing that you took the sensible route and hired Ottawa roofing contractors to keep the rain and water on the outside. It may be tempting to hire your neighbour’s cousin; however, when the job is done properly, you’ll be relieved to know that you used the professional services of an Ottawa roofing contractor.
2. It’s Safer for Home and Business Owners
You may be the king or queen of ‘do-it-yourself’ for jobs on the interior of your house; however, for something as critical as your home or businesses roof, what may seem like a cost-saving measure in the short-run, could turn into a colossal disaster, if left in the hands of a non-professional.
Inspecting and maintaining your home or businesses roof is necessary to ensure its longevity. Depending on the pitch and steepness of your roof, getting up there to complete a thorough inspection could be a daunting task. This is particularly true in cases where the owner does not have proper scaffolding, experience, or comfort with heights. Evaluating, inspecting and installing a new roof is a job best left for roofing contractors. Ottawa roofing contractors are bonded and insured and have the experience and know-how to assess, winterize, and make any necessary repairs to your roof, come springtime.
3. It’s Guaranteed
Perhaps it’s a beautiful spring, and with lots of extra time on your hands, and many offers of ‘helping hands’ from friends and family it may be tempting to tackle your home’s new roofing project yourself. Ottawa roofing contractors encounter this scenario all the time…usually in the spring when a homeowner has experienced a very expensive and damaging leak, which requires immediate attention. By opting to hire professional Ottawa roofing contractors from the onset, many home and business owners actually saved themselves a larger financial headache down the road. Work done by professionals is guaranteed with a warrant. If the roof springs a leak, or a wind storm damages the roof, then the repair will be taken care of quickly and hassle-free.
4. It’s More Cost Efficient!
Have you ever heard the saying “If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur”. Well this most certainly holds true in the case of your home or business’ roof. While hiring your father-in-law or cousin’s wife’s brother may appear to be a financially sound decision that summer that you needed to get your roof re-shingled, let’s see how you’ll feel in the spring when the roofing contractors are tearing out the water damaged dry wall in your ceiling and walls, from the leak that sprung in your roof.
5. Access to Professional Grade Quality Materials
Not all roofing materials are created equal. While hiring Ottawa roofing contractors may cost you more upfront than doing the job yourself, or by hiring a general contractor, you will have access to high quality materials that are best suited for your particular roof. If you would purchase the materials on your own the selection would be much more limited, and you would not have access to the wholesale prices that roofing contractors have.
