Unicrete Roof Tile Goes Out of Business

Although the regular media seems to be remarkably silent about it, one of Calgary’s major roofing manufacturers went under in late 2014, and with it went millions of dollars worth of manufacturer warranties issued to homeowners! Unicrete was a premium product in the category of metal, shake, and rubber roofing. This poses an interesting problem for homeowners who have to repair the product and an even bigger problem for people wanting to make manufacturer warranty claims. If you do need to replace your Unicrete roof, consider looking at Calgary’s other premium roofing product manufacture—Eurosheild Rubber Roofing. This premium product is a Done Right Roofing favourite for 3 reasons: It’s ecofriendly, made from 100% recycled tires. We think that’s amazing! It offers the only NON-PRORATED warranty on the market, meaning that if your roof fails in year 49 of the 50-year warranty, the entire roof is replaced at 100% value, not… Read more…

Standing Out In The Suburbs With A Brand New Roof

There are a million reasons why living in a suburb is the modern dream. Your neighbourhood is safe, clean and friendly; you’re within walking or driving distance of everything you could possibly need; and there’s a sense of community you can’t quite find anywhere else. Your kids go to school in the area, your pets can roam around local parks, and best of all, you can have a home that’s completely your own. There’s a great amount of pride and satisfaction that can come with owning a house in the suburbs – unlike in the city, where restrictive zoning codes and high prices mean you’ll almost certainly have to compromise on some of your house’s features, owning a home in the suburbs means you can have everything you ever wanted when you first considered buying a house, from back and front yards to a proper driveway and garage. But life… Read more…

Redoing Your Home? Don’t Forget About The Roof!

There’s nothing that brings forth a rush of mixed emotions quite like planning a home renovation. On the one hand, it’s exciting! You get to look at new furnishings, play around with paint colours, stare at pictures of other people’s homes and envision exactly what your dream house might look like – what the best way to represent your personal style and tastes might be. This is the most fun part of renovating (besides looking at the finished product, of course!) – but that emotion can be difficult to recall when you’re feeling the sticker shock of staring at a new product, dealing with difficult contractors, unearthing structural problems with your home that you never knew existed, or even wading through sawdust and stray wiring on your way to a partially-built kitchen that seems like it might never get done. There’s all kinds of feelings on the renovation spectrum, from… Read more…

When It Comes To Roofing, Make Sure You Hire Someone You Trust

We deal with roofs for a living, but that doesn’t mean we don’t understand how daunting the prospect of repairing one can be. There’s a weird paradox when it comes to rooftops – everyone understands how important it is for their roof to be in the best possible shape it can be, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, but at the same time, those same people often delay their roof repairs for so long that by the time they do get around to it, the problems on their roof have multiplied or become so exacerbated that they end up having to pay much more money for so many more repairs than they would have needed if they had just dealt with the problem sooner. Since roofs are our business, and our first priority is making sure yours is secure and in good condition, we… Read more…
