Q: I have a 20 year old shake roof in North Van [up by Grouse Mtn.] and am looking at getting quotes for a new roof; shake, asphalt, duroid ? What should I be looking for; questions to ask or a place I can be referred to.
A: You have many choices today in roofing especially when you consider the alternatives to shakes. Your choices for replacement are treated shakes, metal such as Decra Tile – simulated shake appearance or fibreglass laminated duroid shingles which would be the most common choice. Call 604 542 2236 for a referral to one of our reputable roofing referral members. Do not be impressed with some of the new products that claim to have extraordinary warranties but no history to back them up. Buyer Beware.
