Roof Repairs in the Greater Toronto Area

The roof over your head is the crown of your house. Keeping it well maintained will keep your belonging safe and your house looking its best. If you got a leaking roof it does not necessarily mean you need a full roof replacement. Roof spot repairs is a cost-effective solution for the majority of roofing problems. Not all roofs are created equal, at Toronto Roof Repairs we specialize in offering custom roof repair solutions for commercial and residential roofs all over the Great Toronto Area. Our experts will inspect your roof, pinpoint the source of leakage, and fix it for you professionally, and in a timely manner.
Damaged or missing shingle replacement
Replacing missing or damaged shingles will stop a leak and significantly prolong the life
of your roof.
Leaky skylight repair
Inappropriate installation, shingle failure, or skylight flashing, are most common
causes of leaks around your skylight that result in a significant water damage to
skylight framing, plywood, insolation and possibly your ceiling.
Metal or closed valley repair
Valley leaks pose a significant threat not only to your roof but your entire house. Valley
is a connecting point between two sides of the roof. As the result, any leak in valley
provides double the damage. Moreover, during the winter, snow and ice pile up on your
valley. If your valley is damaged, it will cause water accumulation, which will become
the cause of water damage, plywood rotting and mold on the insolation.
Chimney leaks repair
Chimney leaks could be caused by a variety of factors including improper installation of
shingles, failure to put ice and water around the chimney during original roof installation
or faulty flashing installation. As the result, water seepage could cause mold, mildew
and water damage.
Wall flashing repair or replacement
Roof flashing refers to sheet metal installed at any breaks, joints or edges of your roof to
prevent leaks. Faulty flashing could result in significant water damage to your house and
mold growth in the attic.
Raccoons and squirrels are known for the tremendous damage they could cause to your
roof. In search of a shelter, they could break roof vents, rip off shingles and create a
hole in your roof in order to get into your attic. We offer customized solutions to
prevent animals from entering your attic via installation of metal mash or a variety of
other barriers. In addition, our products are completely animal safe.
How to tell if you got a roof leak?
Check for active leaks
An active leak does not necessarily mean water pouring down from a
ceiling. Inspect your ceiling for visual signs of water damage in a form of
stain or discoloration.
Hail and wind damage
Environmental factors impact the condition of your roof. Old or improperly
installed roofs are especially prone to wind and hail damage. Visually
inspect your roof from the ground (within line of sight) for missing or lifted
shingles, missing vents, or signs of animal damage
Mouldy wall flashing
Check for mould where the roof connects to the exterior wall
Damaged or clogged gutters
Gutters are a gateway for water from your roof. Damaged, clogged or
improperly installed gutters can cause water to overflow and go under your shingles and to your house.
Not all roof leaks are created equal. Hail, wind, animals, and improper installation are
common reasons for roof damage and leaks. Keep your roof in check with regular roof
inspections by trusted roofing professionals.

Leon was very reliable and knowledgeable. Not only did he inspect beyond the damage on my roof but inspected other areas to which he gave recommendations in case of future repairs. The damage to my roof was worse than I had originally thought and could have led to water in the house. He made the repairs the same day upon inspection. Definitely recommend. Davide Finelli.
I texted Toronto roof repairs and they were at my house the next day and up on the roof inspecting the damage done to the shingles by the wind, they instructed me how to properly fix, and provided an estimate, said he could get it done right away. I received a quality job completed on the day as promised and at a very competitive price. I'd definitely recommend Toronto roof repairs without hesitation. Dominic Erif.
Amazing service and repair job did at my mother's house. Alex came and gave me an estimate to repair the roof. They saved me $10,000 which was an estimate for reroofing from other companies! They also gave me an invoice so I could give it to my insurance company. Shawn Pettry.
How Your Roof is Affected by Snow and Ice
Picture it It's a snowy day, and you and your family are curled up on the sofa, warm and cozy with a hot drink in hand. Your roof is doing a lot of heavy lifting while you may be cozy and comfortable inside, and maybe under a lot of tension. Your roof works hard to protect you and your family, so in order to take care of it and avoid unnecessary harm, it's important for you to understand How snow and ice affect your roof.
While we think of snow as fluffy and enjoyable, it quickly becomes very heavy when snow and ice pile up on your roof. It can cause your roof to cave in extreme cases. The greatest danger occurs when rainwater or melting snow collects only to freeze into the ice blocks in the low points of your roof. These blocks of ice can be incredibly strong, and since they are in a concentrated position, the risk of damage is significantly greater.
It is unlikely that there will be enough snow and ice in the Greater Toronto Area to cause your roof to cave in, but it is very probable that it will cause noticeable and dramatic damage, particularly if your roof has not been inspected recently and is structurally damaged in any way.
The best way to prepare for the stress that winter weather will bring on your roof is to have a professional roof inspection in Toronto Roof Repairs. The weight of snow and ice should only have a small effect on your roof if your roof is solid, and once the weather clears, it will be easy to repair it.
With regular maintenance, homeowners can often extend the longevity of their roofs. With yearly inspections, homeowners can assure minor damages such as a broken shingle or damaged flashing can be repaired before they lead to significant damages that require a roof replacement or even repairs needed inside the home due to leaks. It’s essential while inspecting your roof to also check the insulation inside your attic to ensure it is still dry. Wet insulation can lead to mould and fungus, which releases toxins into the air that are unsafe for humans.
Keeping your gutters clean can also have a significant impact on increasing the longevity of your roof. Gutters work to divert water away from the roof and foundation of your home. If your gutters are clogged with leaves and other debris, water cannot properly drain and will instead collect on the roof and can lead to leaks within the home. If drains get too clogged, the weight can sometimes cause them to fall off the roof and cause significant damage to your shingles and your home in general. Small leaks may not seem like a big deal, but when water damage becomes visible in the home, there may be more severe damages hidden where you cannot see them. Allowing a leak to remain unrepaired for years can lead to leaks within the home, rotting wood, and serious structural damage.
Most professional roofing companies offer a warranty when they repair or replace a roof. When hiring a roofing professional, you must ask about the guarantees they offer. Roofers who extend warranties to their clients show they are confident with the quality of their work and also in the quality of the materials they are using. When getting your roof repaired or replaced, always ask the company you are using to show you proof of insurance as well as any warranties they offer. Extensive warranties can give you peace of mind that you are paying for quality workmanship and materials.
