How To Avoid a Roofing Disaster
The last thing that you need from a new roof is a leaky mess that damages the inside of your home. Our experts are thoroughly trained to help you avoid such a roofing disaster. We will work quickly and efficiently to install a roof that exceeds building codes. You’ll end up with a roof that has the proper ventilation, leak barriers, and appropriate roof deck protection.
Before starting any roofing installation, we will provide a full assessment of your attic space. If your attic is not properly insulated, our professionals can discuss insulation options that will make your home more energy efficient. Finally, we will also check to make sure that you have the right ventilation to prevent future issues.
Here are some common roofing issues that you’ll be able to avoid with a proper installation:
- Excessive energy costs
- Missing, cracked, or curled shingles
- Exterior decay, sheathing, and/or sliding
- Stained ceiling or walls from mould or mildew
- Leakage in attic after ice buildup
- And more
These roofing disasters can be caused by a range of issues, including inadequate attic ventilation and improper shingle underlayment. Make sure that your home is safe from these problems and ensure you’re working with a trusted roofing contractor, not a “fly-by-nighter”.
What Our Customers Say
"I hired George Kent to replace my eavestroughs and add leaf guards, soffits, and fascia, based on recommendations from a neighbour. They gave me a very competitive quote, arrived early, and had the job completed on time. They made some excellent suggestions, including adding an extra downspout and improving the appearance of eavestroughs at the front corner of the house. Great crew that answered my inquisitive questions, thoroughly cleaned up afterwards, and a great experience overall — can't think of anything I'd change. My house looks brand new!"Thornhill
“We had George Kent replace all our windows, doors, roof, and insulation. All I can say is wow! This company is second to none with their products and their service. The technicians went over and above. They had someone come out to our house to price our product and ensure that the colours we chose would fit the house. I have referred them to many of my friends and neighbours. I would strongly recommend you hire them for any of your major home repairs.”Etobicoke
“Dealing with George Kent Home Improvements is a cut above the rest. For eight years, I had nothing but problems with my flat roof. I wasted thousands of dollars on two failed roof replacements by "fly by night" roofers who represented themselves as experts and then took my money and ran. After the second leaking disaster, I took the recommendation of my neighbour and hired George Kent. They did the job exactly as planned with no hidden costs, while keeping the highest standards in quality and service. Unlike the other roofers, George Kent's estimator clearly understood the challenges that I was facing with my flat roof and knew exactly what was needed to provide me with a permanent solution. He was extremely knowledgeable and went the extra mile to ensure that the estimate and scope of work were precise. He examined my attic and climbed onto my roof before quoting me. Finally, he made sure that he allotted enough time to explain the job to me in great detail. He pointed out the benefits of using the particular materials that he was recommending so that I was completely comfortable with the job before it started.”
“The installation of our new windows and doors was recently completed by George Kent Home Improvements and we wanted to take a moment to express our appreciation for a job well done! Many thanks are extended to their team who spent a great deal of time with us both at our home and in the showroom to ensure our questions were answered. They demonstrated thorough product knowledge and provided sound advice to help us decide on the best windows for our home. We were very impressed with the workmanship during the installation. They installed 14 windows and 3 doors, including a huge bay window. They worked quickly and efficiently, leaving each work area safe and spotless afterwards. The caulking and capping were top notch. We’d certainly recommend them for another project and we’ve had many wonderful compliments on our new windows and doors. This is the third project George Kent has completed for us and our family. The completion of each project has left us satisfied and with a home we are proud to call our own.”
“We wanted to acknowledge the excellent service we received from the team at George Kent. We really enjoy the basement windows and shutters in front of our house. With the knowledgeable people in your company, George Kent Home Improvements can be very proud of its team and it was truly a pleasure to deal with them. We highly recommend the company for home improvements.”
