Roof Replacement

Niagara Falls is beautiful, but not when it feels like it’s in your home.

Roofs are designed to last a long time, but not forever. If your roof is coming up on 15-20 years of life, or if it’s showing visible evidence of wear and tear—like curling, broken or cracked shingles—it might just be time to replace that roof.

Not sure if you need to go the whole hog or if just a few repairs will do? Rümi’s professionals will give you an honest opinion, honestly.

  • When is the best time to replace my roof?

    It’s best to replace your roof before the winter weather arrives. This is based on the safety of our roofers as rooftops become very slippery in the winter and ladder work becomes more difficult. It also means you’ll be warm and dry before the snow flies.

    Replacement roofing is rarely done during the winter due to weather unless there are emergency circumstances and will be considered on a case-by-case, day-by-day basis. Safety first!

  • How long does it take to replace a roof?

    This depends on the size of your home and the material of shingles used, but the average time is around 1-3 days.

  • What are the different types of shingles and roofing?

    Our roofing experts work with all different types of roofing so don’t hesitate to call our advisors and talk through the different options!

    Asphalt shingles: The most common sloped roofing application. Asphalt shingles typically come as laminated architectural shingles made with fibreglass and SBS. Older shingles used to have an organic paper felt mat that was soaked in asphalt. As the organic shingles age, the shingles would begin to curl at the corners and edges, create loose granules and even crack. Newer materials prevent that from happening.

    Cedar shakes and shingles: A classic sloped roofing application that provides a rustic look that ages well. If your cedar shingles are splitting, cupping or becoming loose, it may be time to replace or service them.

    Concrete tiles: Concrete roof tile adds a unique look to your home and provides excellent protection against the elements. With the emergence of lightweight synthetic alternatives to concrete tile roofing, you now have even more options to get that finished tile look at an easier price point.

    Architectural shingles: Architectural shingles appeal to design-conscious consumers, yet they come in at a lower price point than shakes or tiles. The lifespan shingles in this category usually range from 30-to-50 years.

    Metal roofing: Metal roofs last a long time and create an excellent barrier against Alberta’s snow and ice. But when you see signs of rust, loose fasteners, leaks and breaking seals around penetrations, it’s time to replace or service your metal roof. Often, metal roofs can be fixed with re-ply roofing products instead of replacing the metal itself, even if parts are rusty. We also install and service copper roofing, granulated steel roofing panels and more.

    Flat roofing: Flat roofing must be able to hold snow and water for long durations of time and then drain this moisture through a positive drainage system. If it isn’t installed correctly, your roof can leak or break down prematurely. That’s why it’s essential that flat roofing is installed professionally the first time.

    Sloped roofing: We install and service all types of sloped roofing applications, such as fibreglass shingles, steel roofing panels, standing seam roofs, rubber shingles, cedar shakes and more. Regardless of the size or complexity of your project, we’re here to make sure that the job is done right from start to finish.
