EMERGENCY ALERT
The GTA suffered a hurricane windstorm, clicking in at 120 km winds. This storm caused more roof damage then any seen in the GTA before as winds have not been this high since 1954: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXqcecZ6Dzw&feature=youtu.be. All of the roofs we have installed over the years were put to the test and many roofs suffered wind damage on this day. other then one brand: the GAF Timberline HD. All of us roofers learned many lessons due to the storm, see below:

LESSON 1

Use GAF TIMBERLINE SHINGLES

LESSON 2

Do not use GAF’s seal a ridge cap system, they will blow away
Use either generic ridge cap brand for capping or use their very high priced Timber Tex capping. This would add an additional $100-$600 to the quote we have provided you.
The quote we have given you is with the generic ridge cap that will hold up just as well. If you would prefer the Timber Tex cap please inquire to this email: gitanovashal@gmail.com with your address and date the quote was done.

LESSON 3

Always have tarps and a ladder on your property
Storing 2 tarps that are 20×30 and a ladder will allow you to be prepared to protect your roof and home against windstorm damage.

LESSON 4

Always close your valleys
A closed valley is more secure than a metal valley in windy conditions and it provides better protection from ice and wildlife at the same time.

LESSON 5

Choose a popular colour
In case of an emergency repair, popular colours are easy to access. The most popular GAF colours are available to view at Home Depot. We prefer the barkwood over hickory in order to use the generic ridge cap system, which saves costs.
Popular GAF colours: Barkwood, Driftwood, Weathered Wood, Charcoal, Slate and Shakewood.

General Questions

Due to Rain, Wind, Hot and Cold we would much rather give you a week window because one of these days can through off the entire schedule. Once the shingles are delivered on the roof we are usually there within a week and we do call a day before we start.

We follow the same procedure the builders do when we install your roof, except for one thing: we put on a shingle that will NOT blow away.
