Roofing in MontrealThe vast majority (almost 90%) of sloped roofs on residential properties in Quebec are built using fiberglass-based, asphalt shingles. They are durable, practical and eminently varied as to colour, size, shape and, especially thickness. Depending on this choice of thickness, you can expect a roofing-life of up to 30 years! If you require more durable or esthetically more appealing solutions, ask us about metal roofing (steel, aluminum, tin or copper), wood shingles, tiles (concrete or clay) or, even, fiberglass-reinforced concrete. All these materials have their own, unique properties to recommend them. Talk to us, all information, our experience and estimates are always free. Many older buildings, both residential and industrial/commercial, as well as some modern structures, are built with flat (or low-sloped) roofs that require a very different solution, namely elastomeric membranes - providing seamless, water-tight layers of protection. They, too, come in various colours and qualities. For many years, the most common roofing method for sealing flat roofs was the use of asphalt and gravel (the so-called “tar-and-gravel” process) but is falling out-of-favour as much more cost-effective materials are available today, requiring less maintenance and giving the property owner a better “ROI” (Return On Investment). Ask us for details - we are happy to share our knowledge and experience. Excellent warranties are offered by our manufacturer-partners to which we add our own, unique “CCQ Warranty”*.

Shingles are a proven roof covering material that is available in many styles, shapes and colours. Architectural shingle types - such as laminates - are rapidly gaining in popularity. Asphalt shingles are suitable for most residential applications. In fact, industry estimates show approximately 80% of the total residential roofs are covered with asphalt shingles. Properly installed asphalt shingles will not only effectively shed water off the roof; they will enhance the beauty, character and value of your home. Lastly, asphalt shingles are backed by a warranty typically ranging from 20 years to Lifetime.

Choosing the right shingles for your roof Many variables will guide you in the decision of which shingle type is suitable for your roof. The choice of shingles must consider the budget available, the style of the roof and its slope, and the warranty coverage desired..

Tar & Gravel Roofs
Tar and gravel roof cover is used primarily on roofs with low slopes ranging from a little better then flat to somewhere around a 3-in-12 slope - (that's roofing talk for three inches of vertical rise for every twelve inches or horizontal run).
This type of roof is composed of alternating layers of roofing felt and hot tar and is often referred to as a hot mopped or built-up roof. It sounds as if you have a variation of this. That is that you have a built-up or hot mopped roof which does not contain gravel. A tar and gravel roof without the gravel so to speak.
Advantages of Tar and Gravel Roofs
With conventional tar and gravel roofing the tar is covered with a thin layer of gravel to protect the tar from the harmful ultra violet rays of the sun. Contrary to popular belief it is not water and rain that are responsible for the majority of the damage to roofing products, it's the constant exposure to the sun. Cons of Tar and Gravel Roofs Tar & Gravel roofing is a dated roofing system. With advances in roofing technologies, membrane roofs are a superior roofing system meant to endure Montreal's harsh climates. Many boroughs in the Montreal area have banned tar & gravel roofs, and we do not offer this as a new roof, however we do offer repairs on existing tar & gravel roofing systems.
