What is Residential Sloped Roofing?

Is it time to replace the sloped roof for your home?

If your home needs a new sloped roof, you can rest assured that Knights Roofing will install a new roof that will keep your home protected for years to come.

What types of homes have a sloped roof?

Most residential buildings have sloped roofs. You can tell if your home has a sloped roof by the fact that the roof is visible at an angle rather than a level place to stand. The most common residential buildings you will see with a sloped roof include:

  • Single-family homes
  • Duplexes and Townhomes
  • Garages
  • Garden suites

Types of Residential Sloped Roofing: Re-Roofing versus New Construction

Considering roofing repairs and maintenance? The most common time for booking a re-roofing service is after the winter months. Days of heavy snowfall, ice storms, and wind can take a toll on your roof. Whether this is your first time renovating your roof or you’ve lost count, we want to help you protect your home this year. 

With our re-roofing services, our team at Knights Roofing will renovate the roof of your home efficiently and with ease. The average asphalt roof needs to be replaced every 15 to 20 years, depending on the quality of the installed materials, climate and weather. In Alberta, our climate is incredibly harsh with freeze-thaw periods and heavy amounts of snow, so you may find your roof starts to deteriorate sooner than expected. If you find yourself facing issues with your home’s roof relatively often, it may be a sign you need to completely replace your home’s roof rather than repair it.

Knights Roofing can also help your new construction home with its sloped roof! Our experienced team will ensure that your roof is built to all codes and standards, keeping you warm and dry all year round. If you have a new home construction project that needs a roof, trust that Knights Roofing will give you the best results at the fairest price.

Know the Signs: When should my home’s sloped roof be replaced?

Despite the lifespan of your roof, many factors can change its durability and longevity. Some things to consider include: 

  • Water is getting through the roof and leaking
  • Your roof has curled or missing shingles
  • You are finding lots of sand granules in your eavestrough or at the downspouts
  • You end up repairing your roof regularly

Annual maintenance and inspections of your roof can help you to save time and money on repairs and help you to stay updated on when it is time to repair, and when it is time to make the call to replace your roof.

So what is our process? Knights Roofing undergoes a strict process when it comes to residential re-roofing. We want to ensure your roof is re-roofed quickly and correctly to not disrupt your living situation for too long. Living in a home while it’s being re-roofed can be a nuisance, so Knights Roofing ensures you face as few issues and difficulties as possible.

Residential re-roofing starts by completely removing and disposing of the existing roof system. We will then install all new metal drip edges and flashing, ice and water shield membranes, underlays, and roof covers (typically for a home, asphalt shingles). Your venting system will be assessed to ensure it meets the current building code and material manufacturer’s warranty requirements. All vents will be replaced with new ones, and more may be added if required. Knights Roofing also performs an extensive cleanup regimen where the building perimeter is magnetically swept to pick up nails or fasteners that may have fallen from the roof while work was being performed. If your sloped roof needs to be replaced, trust Knights Roofing for a quality job!
