Roof Repair Mississauga
Roofs develop leaks years before the entire roof needs replacing. Usually these leaks are caused by localized damage, such as cracked or missing shingles or shakes, damaged flashings or skylights.
A few missing or blown shingles can create a severe leak if not dealt with immediately. Therefore we treat these types of repair as a priority repair and dispatch our trucks with most commonly installed colored shingles as well as all the necessary materials needed. In most cases we can perform the shingle repairs on the spot.
Shingle roofs are usually easy to fix. Yet roofing repairs should be left to a professional. At Roof Maintenance.ca we provide immediate shingle repair services through out the Greater Toronto Area.
Our certified roofing contractors look for:
- Missing, blistered or curled shingles
- Missing granules on shingles
- Buckling shingles
- Rotting plywood
- Loose or exposed nails
- Corroded metal (flashing)
- Loose shingles in the valleys, around plumbing vents and near chimneys
- Inadequate drainage system (overflowing gutters)
Asphalt shingles are typically the most widely used product for residential roofing since they are affordable, easy to install, adjust well to a wide range of temperatures and are available in a variety of different styles, colours and textures. In addition, owners have the option to upgrade to a Limited Lifetime Warranty Architectural Shingle, if desired.
Traditional 3-Tab Shingles
Traditional 3-Tab Shingles are currently the most affordable shingle on the market and majority of homeowners select these shingles for overall cost, smooth finish appearance and manufacturer's warranty.
Architectural shingles are priced slightly above the Traditional 3 Tab Shingle since they are heavier and provide more strength and durability. They are designed to endure stronger winds and minimize the chance of ice and / or snow from penetrating underneath the shingles during the winter season. They also have a rough finish appearance and longer manufacturer's warranty.
Premium Designer Shingles
Premium asphalt roofing shingles are usually described as laminated shingles that have a differentiated appearance or functionality from traditional dimensional asphalt roofing shingles. These products may have designs that mimic "old-world" roofing shingles, like natural slate or natural shake roofing shingles. Premium asphalt roofing shingles might also have important functional improvements such as Impact Resistance or Solar Reflectivity that can possibly extend the life of the roofing system or provide lower energy costs.

What is a Shingled roof?
A shingled roof has sloping sides that are steep enough to shed water into a gutter system by gravity alone. Shingles come in an endless variety of forms. They are flat, curved, interlocking overlapping, with many more possible variations. The roofs pitch is an important factor when choosing the right shingles for the best efficiency.
Many materials are well suited to serve as weatherproof, durable, shingles. Ceramic or clay tiles come in an elongated S-shape to top Spanish-style adobe houses. Slate comes in a variety of colors, from blue to green to gray to tan, and lasts as long as one hundred years. Of course, cost must be considered so lighter alternatives, such as asphalt shingles, can mimic both the color and the fire-retardant rating of more expensive choices.
