How it works

Depending on the quality of the original work, the practical life span of a residential roof in a climate as in Toronto can fluctuate between 15 and 20 years. Do you think it's time for you to think about renovating your roof? With SmartReno, you can find the most skilled roofing contractors in the Greater Toronto Area and entrust the replacement of your roof to highly qualified experts.

Here are 4 things to look out for during a quick inspection of the condition of your roofing

Water infiltration inside your home

Evidently, the first sign telling you that it is time to contact a specialist is the appearance of wet spots along the ceilings of your home. You may also notice discoloration of the paint on the top of some rooms. If you notice these signs, don’t waste any more time and contact a roof contractor.

Deformities along your roof

The second sign of a roof that needs to be renovated is the appearance of any sagging or bulging. It is important to remedy this problem before the onset of severe cold weather. This is especially true in a city like Toronto that has harsh and glacial winters.

Wear and tear of shingles

During your inspection, you may notice the wear and tear of certain shingles that are discoloured or that seem to contrast with the rest of your roof. Fortunately, it is now possible to replace shingles individually without having to restore all of your roofing.

The loss of shingle granules

With the frigid weather typical of Toronto winters, some shingles may lose a fair number of granules. These granules act as an additional protection for the waterproofing of your roofing and it is important to be careful to replace the shingles lacking this protection.


Fast, free and simple, SmartReno is a must when it comes to renovating your roof in the beautiful Toronto area.
