Most people believe that shingles make up a roof. But shingles alone do not constitute a roof; they are just one component of a roof's system, and it takes more than just shingles to protect your home. Your roof is an integrated system of components and layers designed to withstand the forces of nature outside while controlling temperature and humidity inside. The components of a roofing system are designed to work together to help increase the performance and longevity of the roof, and to enhance the comfort and enjoyment of those who live beneath it. Simply replacing your shingles and ignoring all the other components of the roofing system runs the risk of premature wear and costly repairs, and, spoiler alert - the manufacturer warranty is completely void without a full roofing system installation!
Residents of York Region have no shortage of roofing contractors to seek estimates from when it comes time for a new roof. But it's becoming increasingly important to perform apples-to-apples comparisons between the quotes you receive and ask questions of the roofing companies to better understand exactly what you're getting for your money. Whether you plan on being in the home for 2 years or 20 years, it's human nature to gravitate towards the best deal. But when it comes to your roof, the best deal is not always the best option. Take your time to review your quotes, ask questions, do your due diligence, and proceed with the company your feel most comfortable with. If a quote looks to good to be true, it probably is.

How to Choose the Right Roof for Your Home
Replacing your roof is a big expense, so you want to be certain you're doing it right the first time to ensure decades of protection and peace of mind for you and your family. New roof quotes can vary significantly in price, level of detail, quality, and clarity, and there are numerous reasons for this. The key is to understand what you're actually getting for your money, regardless of the quote you elect to proceed with. This is why it's so important to do a proper comparison between all your quotes - not just comparing the bottom line prices, but the type of materials being installed, what's included and what isn't, and whether or not existing roofing materials will be reused.
