Toronto Roofing: Different Styles, Different Materials, And Different Solutions

Whether you are building from scratch or choosing a new roof for your existing home, as a North York homeowner, you recognize that your home reflects you - your taste and standards. The challenge comes in making a choice on roofing in North York as there are more types and styles of roofing materials to choose from than ever before today.

At Alpine Roofing we understand your dilemma, we’ve been protecting homes and businesses since 1974 in North York, Burlington, Mississauga, Oakville, and the Greater Toronto Area. Our certified crews are experienced in providing a wide range of roofing systems and services to residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial buildings including first-rate roofing and carpentry work. Alpine Roofing is a Toronto roofing company dedicated to providing exceptional roofing solutions in a variety of materials including asphalt and polymer shingles, cedar shingles, slate, and copper.

Style is an important factor, but it’s not the only one, you’ll want to consider the cost, color, texture, weight, and durability of your alternatives, as well as what traditionally has been used on houses like yours. There are many factors to consider when selecting a roof including:

  • How long will it last?
  • Does it hold up during natural disasters such as wildfires or hurricanes?
  • Is it too heavy for the existing roof framing?
  • Does the roof have enough slope?
  • Will the look complement the style of the house?
  • Are the materials eco-friendly and recyclable?
  • Is the type of roofing allowed by local building codes?
  • And finally, how much does it cost?

The condition and design of you roof will also figure dominantly. A house with multiple chimneys, vent pipes, or dormers, intersecting rooflines or valleys, turrets, skylights, or other elements will cost significantly more to roof. A flat roof or one with a low slope may demand a surface different from one with a steeper pitch. The condition of the existing supporting structure of the roof should be examined and if necessary repaired. Installation requirements may also influence your selection.

Ensuring you understand the product you choose is right for your home is essential and to protect that choice you need to read and understand the manufacturer’s warranty and the roofing contractors warranty on installation carefully to see what is covered and excluded.

Alpine Roofing offers a range of materials for North York roofing work, like low-maintenance and environmentally friendly clay roofing to aesthetically appealing natural cedar options.

Regardless of your choice, you can rest assured that every element of the job, including all flashing, soffit, fascia, eavestroughs, and ventilation will be handled correctly. Call Alpine Roofing at 416-469-1939 to schedule your consultation or inspection today.
