Chimney Removal
Posted March 22, 2012

In many of today's homes, high efficiency furnaces and water tanks are being used. Chimneys are no longer required and can be easily removed. If you have an unused chimney or a chimney that is falling apart (which is dangerous), we can remove it for you. We will remove the chimney and repair the area of the roof where the chimeny was. Then we will roof over top of it. Call us today for a free estimate.


Warranty
Posted June 8, 2011

This is just a reminder that you should review the IKO information package you receive (the booklet with the colour chart in it). You can also review the warranty information on the IKO website at any time. Please note that the warranty does not cover damage due to extreme weather such as high winds, tornados, hail and so on. When such an event occurs, there will be a fee for repair.


Get What You Pay For
Posted May 4, 2011

Lately there have been many new roofing companies lowering their prices to get the job. When you lower your prices, you must also lower the quality of product you use, or hire inexperienced labourers to do the job for less money. As As a property owner, you may end up paying twice for a job that has not been professionaly completed.

At Ace Roofing Services Inc., we stand behind our work and will not lower our standards just in order to offer a lower price. We work with an experienced crew, use only high quality materials and will continue to do so always. So why not let us do it right the first time and save you money in the long run! Call us today and we'll provide a free estimate.


Spring is Here

Roofing season has begun. If you need a new roof or repair please call us today for a free estimate.


ICE DAMS
Posted March 2, 2011

What You Need to Know About Ice Dams

An ice dam is a ridge of ice that forms at the edge of a roof and prevents melting snow (water) from draining off the roof. The water that backs up behind the dam can leak into a home and cause damage to walls, ceilings, insulation, and other areas.


Ice Dam Damage - Global Edmonton.

Varying temperatures on the roof's surface cause ice dams. Heat coming from the inside of the house causes the upper part of the roof to be warmer. This may be caused by poor insulation. The heat from the house to the attic causes snow that is on the roof to melt. When the water from the snow meets the colder temperature of the lower roof, it freezes causing an ice dam to form. You may notice icicles hanging from the edge of the roof.

In order to prevent ice dams from forming, you must ensure that heat does not escape from the house and into the attic. Recessed lights, skylights, complicated roof designs, and heating ducts in the attic will all increase the risk of ice dam formation.

For more information on Ice Dams, please read this article written by Mike Holmes, Ice Dams & Your Roof.
