Post-Exterior Work Checkups
If you’ve had tradesmen on your roof for an HVAC, siding or painting project, we are available to check for potential damage. Dropped tools and foot traffic can compromise the roof membrane or cause damage to flashings.
High-power pressure washers should be avoided. We use a low-pressure, non-toxic pressure washing system that doesn’t use chlorine or bleach. Prior to the wash, we will inspect the roof and make repairs as necessary. We also provide compulsory follow-up with a complete cleanup.
As moss holds moisture and prevents proper runoff, it can lead to water damage to your roof, as well as dig in and remove the UV-protecting granules that are a part of many shingle types. Moss removal can boost your curb appeal and property value.

While the concept is familiar to most, leaf and debris removal can help your roof to:
When your gutters are free of debris, they simply work more effectively and do a better job of draining water away from your structure’s foundation. We recommend having your gutters cleaned twice per year.
Preventing expensive water damage is what a roofing system is all about. Our waterproofing system helps protect new and existing masonry chimneys, while also reducing water penetration into the masonry by up to 94%.
The area above the roof-line where the chimney protrudes through the roofing materials is susceptible to water leaks and roof damage. A multiple layered chimney flashing system will seal the contact between your chimney and roof.
Are you worried about your ageing roof? Think you have a leak in your building envelope? Not sure where to start? You may qualify for a free, no-obligation inspection from our representative.
Heavy snowfall on roofs equates into excessive roof weight loads and the formation of ice dams that can prevent proper drainage. The outcome can seriously damage roofs, gutters and blocked-down spouts.
