Affordable roofing repair and installation for residential homes in Cranbrook, Kimberley and the East Kootenay
The average home roof is in need of repair approximately every 10 years. Adrien Mauthe, owner of Discount Roofing, has over 15 years of experience in repairing and replacing all types of roofing, including asphalt shingles, shake conversions, tar and gravel conversions and 2-ply torch-on roofing.
What are the benefits of asphalt shingles?
Asphalt shingles create depth and thickness, giving the roof a custom look and impressing builders and homeowners alike, for both aesthetic and functional reasons. These shingles perform well in all weather, and in extreme temperatures—even in locations with ample wind and ice.
They are also significantly more affordable. The low cost of application and high-volume production means customers save money and end up with a long-lasting, durable product, as well.
Asphalt shingles are also low-maintenance when chosen and applied correctly. Little to no maintenance is required, and any necessary repairs are easy to manage.
What is a tar and gravel roof conversion?
Though it was once considered a desirable system, tar and gravel roofing is often replaced with newer more efficient processes that save even more money.
For example, a 2-ply torch-on roof can be used instead. This will reduce the cost of materials, and also the homeowner's heating and cooling bills.
Torch-on roofing is most often used on low-angled and flat-shaped roofs. A torch-on roof consists of two layers of modified bitumen membrane. The two layers are merged together thermally—this is sometimes done with a propane torch, inspiring the term “torch-on roofing”. These roofs last for 20 - 25 years and are very durable, energy-efficient and low-maintenance. Their waterproof properties also keep moisture from entering your home, and they are lightweight and impact resistant.
What is a cedar roof conversion?
A cedar roof conversion is when cedar shakes are removed and replaced with another material (such as asphalt shingles). It's less expensive than replacing it with new cedar, although the conversion itself can be more complicated than wood-to-wood conversions. You will need a qualified team to help you out, and Discount Roofing has what it takes.
It's well worth making the switch-over—old cedar roofs tend to be vulnerable to leaks and damage. Your new asphalt shingles will provide you with a much more easily maintained, durable, eye-catching result.
