Stop the Heat From Escaping This Winter

Choosing a high quality roofing contractor is important and can sometimes be a hard task for consumers who are unfamiliar with roof repair. It is essential to choose experienced contractors, such as our incredible team here at Done Right Roofing, to ensure that your investment will protect your home for many years to come.

Unfortunately, there are numerous roofing contractors who provide poor quality installations and meager workmanship. Selecting the right roof structure is paramount to geographical areas. Regions such as Calgary, Alberta require a roof structure that will withstand the extreme elements. In truth, your roof should have a six-part system to help keep the heat in, while protecting your home and family. A roof deck is a vital element that supports the rest of the system. It is made of wood or metal and is the first layer laid down to make up your roof. Next is the ventilation system which helps move air in and out of your home without letting in the elements. Poor ventilation can create problems with moisture and temperature. Without good ventilation, the elements can destroy your roof and may damage the rest of the house. Flashing and underlayment also play an important role in protecting your roof deck from wear. And lastly, shingles protect the rest of the roof from the elements for years to come. They also add unique style and beauty. Our team at Done Right Roofing takes extra care to ensure that all parts of your roof are installed correctly and to code.

Now all roofs eventually wear out. However, the rate of how fast a roof wears out depends on many factors, such as extreme climate, roof ventilation, quality materials and exposure to rain, wind or snow. According to the National Association of Home Builders, the majority of roofing products are designed to last a minimum of 20 years under normal weather conditions. Though low grade materials like aluminum coating will only last 3-7 years. On the other hand, 3-tab asphalt shingles can last 20 years. Even better, eco-friendly roofing materials made from 75% recycled material can offer a 50-year guarantee for the roofing materials.

Never let price be the main factor in choosing a contractor. Poor roof repairs can lead to considerable damage to your home. Knowing what to look for is the key to finding a high quality roofing contractor to do the job and be more cost effective. You can rely on our expert team here at Done Right Roofing to get the job done quickly, efficiently and right the first time. Call today for an estimate and let’s get started today!
