How it works

Getting a new roof on your home is an excellent investment, though it is no small undertaking. The process can be daunting for some, and this is perfectly understandable. If you haven’t seen a roof replacement before, it can be difficult to know what to expect and it can also be a bit scary when your house is in one of the middle stages of installation and you can see parts of the house that you have never seen before. Some have described putting a new roof on your home as a domestic “major surgery”, and it is a fairly accurate way to put it.

How it works

The roof of your home is one of the major protective forces between the wind and weather and your inside rooms. If the roof is failing, a swift repair or replacement will make sure everything is alright. It is no small task, though, and can often look a bit frightening from the outset.

When you work with Calgary Roofing, you do not need to worry about a single thing. We have many years of experience in the roofing business and know our way around every challenge. To help prepare you for what is ahead with the installation of your new roof, we have created this guide to the general roofing process.

The Consultation

The first step of the entire roofing process is a conversation with one of our contractors. We have an excellent team of experts and we are more than happy to come out to your property and give you a quote free of charge and free from obligation. Pick up the phone and give us a call so we can discuss all of your roofing options. Whatever it is that you need, we have the skills and materials needed to get it done.

The Lead-Up

Once you have agreed to work with us and we have collaborated together to choose the best roofing material for your home and area, we will schedule a date to begin. A few days before the chosen date for installation, we will deliver a dumpster to your home. This will be used for the old materials that are removed from your roof.

How it works

A few days before the project begins, a delivery of roofing materials will also arrive at your home. This may be shingles, metal roofing, or whatever material you have selected. We will make sure that we let you know exactly when this shipment will be arriving, as it is often beneficial for our clients to have someone at home when they arrive so that they can direct their placement to the most convenient location.

The Removal

On the first day of the project, a crew will arrive at your house fairly early in the morning. Exact time can easily be worked out with your particular contractor. You will want to secure all valuable items that you have in your garden or yard, such as statues and fountains, as they will be at increased risk of damage during the roofing process. It is also best to keep pets indoors and to ask small children to remain inside as well, as there is a possibility of roofing material falling down from above. Talk to your contractor about any special requests that you have, such as having the gates closed behind workers or being careful in a particular area of the yard.

Workers will begin to remove the old roofing materials from the building. This can be a bit frightening for homeowners as the building suddenly looks rather naked and the wood beneath being is revealed. There is no cause for alarm, however, as this is exactly how things are supposed to be progressing. The removal process typically takes up most of the first day of the project, and tarps will be laid out to protect the roof overnight.

The Installation

The installation process is fairly straightforward. You can watch your roofing team transform your now-naked roof into a brand new, well-covered one.

How it works

Depending on the size of your roof, the installation process can take between two and four days. If you have any questions throughout the process, please do ask! We are always more than happy to discuss your concerns.

The Wrap Up

After your new roof has been installed, there isn’t too much to be done! You have a beautiful new roof on your home, along with full access to our staff who are more than happy to address any questions or concerns that you have. The dumpster will be picked up within a day and our team will sweep your yard for nails and other debris. After that, all is complete and you can sit back and enjoy your new roof.

"Quick installation for historic home at sound investment"

We have an old, historic home that was built before the turn of the century. It is a good house with solid bones but has needed a lot of work over the years. I knew that we needed a new roof and that I wanted to make a sound investment that also preserved the historic appearance of the home.

I called up Calgary Siding and talked with them about the different options. They sent a contractor out to my house and took a look at the different colors and the building style before making a recommendation. I did some of my own research and found that the product they had recommended had an excellent reputation and would match well with the appearance of our home.

We set up a day for the very next week when they could come out and start the process. Our old roof was gone and our new roof installed within just a few days. It all looks beautiful and we haven’t had a bit of trouble with it at all.

"Excellent job! Impressed with the customer service"

My family and I decided to build our new home from scratch. It has always been a dream of ours to create something unique and beautiful and perfect for our family of six. Throughout the process, I got a pretty good handle on the construction business and worked with a lot of different experts and contractors.

I was so impressed with the customer service that I received from everyone that I talked to. They were always happy to answer my questions—and I sure had a lot of them! The roof was really important to me because it felt like the thing that would best protect our investment in this new home, standing between us and the weather.

We went over all of our options and decided on a tile roof to match the style of the house. They were at our house and working away in no time, and they did an excellent job!

"Happy with the match of roofing material and color"

My house has a metal roof and I love it. One of the only issues with a metal roof is the fact that it can be rather difficult to repair. When one of our panels got a sizeable dent, I was pretty worried that we wouldn’t be able to repair it without it being quite obvious.

I called up the company and expressed my concerns about the roof and asked whether or not they would be able to match the color of our existing roofing panels. They sent one of their contractors out to my house to take a look. He brought some samples with him and we compared them to the material that was already on the roof of my home.

The fourth or fifth metal that he brought was a near-perfect match and I was so relieved. The very next day he was back with a couple of guys and they replaced the dented panel. It was a bit shinier than the rest at first, but now you can’t even tell!

"Pleased with customer service and fair pricing"

Everyone that I met from the company was kind and courteous, and our team of roofers got the job done quickly. My new roof looks beautiful! My wife and I bought a fixer-upper that hadn’t gotten a new roof in far too long, and I was worried that parts of the wood beneath the shingles would be too far gone. The team ripped off the old roofing in no time and then consulted with the two of us.

There were some boards that had to be replaced, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as I had feared. We agreed on a new method and went right on ahead. They were very fair in their pricing for the additional trouble of replacing the wood, and I was quite pleased with their customer service throughout. They are a great team of locals and I really recommend them.
