Recently purchased a house and home inspector indicated that concrete sill around chimney should be aluminum capped. Also, patio door sill concrete is cracked and should be aluminum capped as well. Subject to cost, I would like to remove previous owners satellite dish and install an antennae. I figured it would a good time, since someone is already up there. Please see photos. Quotes and timing appreciated.
We are looking to increase the living space of the top floor (master bedroom) of our 1 1/2 storey house by adding a dormer(s) on the back half. Looking for someone who has direct and recent experience in the carpentry and roofing aspect of installing dormers. References/past project examples required. If interested please contact me and we can discuss the details of the project.
I have two leaks.
The first happens in the dining room, whenever I shower in the Master bedroom above.
The second happens in the Master Closet whenever it rains. There's a roof top deck above the Master Suite.
I would like to know: a) what is causing the leaks; b) have the leaks caused any other damage; and c) how much would it cost to fix both a and b. Also, d) can you please provide reference?
I live in a 30 year-old, multilevel town home.
Two-storey house, in Ottawa near Carlingwood Mall, built in 1955.
Replacing a second-storey tar-and-gravel roof, perhaps 18-20 yrs old, the dimensions are roughly 46 ft by 27 ft.
The roof should be replaced as soon as wheather allows: serious leak during the December 26th ice storm - a lot of water seeped through the ceiling, walls and floors all the way to the basement. Insurance will cover the interior damage. The insulation seems insufficient in the roof as signs of heat loss were noted.
The first-storey roof over the addition in the back of the house was redone in 2007 with modified bitumen membrane. The house is heated with a hot water radiant system (no ducts) and there is no ventilation of any kind (other than oven hood), no attic space either.
Scenario one: Remove roof deck, add foam insulation and an attic space(?) and ventilation system. Build new membrane roof.
Scenario two: Build new peaked roof with adequate ventilation and insulation.
We will consider the pros and cons of the two scenarios and the cost difference.
I'm looking for a bonded, insured contractor listed with BBB with great rating. Preferably from Ottawa area but does not have to be.
Contractor to undertake a flat roof conversian to a gable style roof. Roof deck is approximately 2300 square feet in total.
Must make sure adequate insulation, snow and ice dam shield on the new roof.
Eavestroughing installation has to be quoted on as well.
House is built in 1954.
Contact me to find out address where you could give me an estimate.
Currently a 1100 square foot Campeau bungalow, project would include removal of the current roof in order to add a second story and new roof. Services required would include any demolition needed as well as the reframing carpentry.
Required blueprints have already been prepared and are available for pricing estimates.
The old house I am buying has a very steep roof and lacks adequate ventilation, causing premature deterioration of shingles. I would like to install soffits and fascia, gutters and downspouts and need to build an overhang over the front porch.
There is not enough room currently for soffits and I'm thinking the roof might have to be rebuilt. If so, a dormer window on the back-yard side would increase resale value - but I'm not sure I can afford this as well. I will be taking possession of the house Aug 28 and have about three weeks before I have to move in.
I also need to install vinyl siding, vinyl windows, upgrade electrical from 60 to 100 amps (including panels, breakers, circuits, etc) and replace cast iron waste piping. I will post these projects separately.
I have a 3 year old town home in Ottawa. I moved in October 2008, and had very severe ice problems. I called my home inspector, and he recommended having Maxivents installed to replace the old vents.
I do not know how many are on the roof currently, but it is a normal size townhome.
The previous owner installed a roof less than 12 years ago. But 2 years ago, we noticed a leak coming into the garage. Had 2 roofing people look at it and they couldn't find the problem. But this summer we can see that some of the shingles above the garage are lifting.
A roofing contractor came by and offered to do a quote. He suggests replacing all the shingles (and some of the deck).
I'd like to know what you think!
Then we'll make a decision and get the job done.

We live in Barrhaven - house is 13 years old - 2 story Minto home with a front porch. The shingles on the porch are really curling and need to be replaced. The balance of the roof appears to be Ok. Eventually we will replace the roof shingles but at the moment we are looking around for quotes for the porch only. Contact via email is preferred.

Replacing flat roof
To supply and install new flat roof with existing skylight
To supply and install a waterproof membrane with a protective covering - preventing water reaching the roof structure and the room below. Either Self adhesive membrane or single ply roofing Membrane with a 2% slope run off towards the outlets and gutters. (the client is open for suggestions)
Thermal insulation - Roof deck - Vapour control layer - Load bearing supportive structure (if required) -.Maintain or build new outlets, gutters, maintain surface perforations (plumbing stacks) and replacing the glass in the existing skylight. Lead flashing may need to be replaced. The flat roof area is approx. 30 ft x 32ft = 960sqft.
Re-shingling of roof. Plywood underneath is in very good shape (replaced last time the roof was done). No interior leaks, however shingles need urgent replacement. Curling up bad in the front. Approx 600 sq ft of roof.
House built in 1971. Roof not connected to neighbors.
There is also some flashing occurring near the eavesdrops, meaning where the water is suppose to be flowing into the eavesdrop, it misses and flows down the side of the house. This needs to be fixed as well.
I would like to know approximately now much it would cost to re-shingle a 1997 Minto Paloma model home (2 storeys) with the basic 15 - 20 year life span shingles. Square footage of the homes is approx 1800 square feet. The area of the roof is unknown, however if you contact me I can give you the information you require for a ball park cost.
I am looking to get my roof replaced. The home was built in 1999 and has the original roof. The time has come to replace it. My home is roughly 1600 sq.ft and is a 2 story with a one car attached garage. We live in Constance Bay, about 20 minutes outside of Kanata.
I am also interested in eavestroughing (I am sure that is spelled wrong) as the house has some, but it is poor condition.
As for materials, I am looking for 20 year asphalt shingles, and a company with proper licensing / insurance and labor guarantees. I also want the nails removed off my yard as I have animals.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Yesterday's high winds has damaged some shingles on my 2 story home. I have some curled and lifted shingles that need to be repaired/replaced. The colour is standard 2 tone black.
Many homes in the neighborhood were affected, so it could be a repair job that could lead to many other opportunities.
Attached pictures shows the damage.
Please provide a quote in your response.
I need my roof reshingled, hopefully before the snow flies. Although I have no leaks, the existing shingles are about 15-20 years old (the house is about 60 years old) and it is clear the job needs to be done sooner rather than later. The two-storey house is in the Westboro area and the four-sided roof is not overly large (attic space is around 600 sq ft, and the job will include reroofing the garage and a small sunroom) and definitely not complex--there are no valleys or steep pitches to deal with. I will be looking for at least a 40-year shingle. It seems almost all my flashings are in great shape and need not be replaced. There are two mushroom-type vents that will need to be replaced with one (or two, depending on the model) tower vents. Only one section of roof edging needs to be replaced on the front of the garage since the existing one was painted at some point and the paint is peeling.
I am at the end of my tether with trying to find a contractor who can not only do a good job at a reasonable price, but one who actually responds in some fashion to telephone or e-mail requests to come and provide an estimate; shows up for estimates when he is supposed to; actually follows through with an estimate after seeing the home and taking the measurments, or at a minimum lets me know they are not interested or can't get it done before winter, etc. This shouldn't be this hard, and I am fed up with supposedly reputable companies effectively wasting my time. Therefore, I am turning the tables and contractors can come to me rather than me chasing contractors to no avail.
If there is a company out there who wants to give an estimate on this job and who is prepared to do what they say they will do, when they say they will do it, then please contact me by 5 pm, Wednesday, October 17.
