A Solid Partner in the Montérégie Region
At Couvreur T-H-R & Fils Inc, we have built a solid and long-lasting partner relationship with our suppliers in order to ensure the smooth operation and quality of our work. We are a solid team from the beginning of the work to the finished product.
Our materials are of the highest quality and are available in an extensive variety of colours and models. We carry everything from regular conventional shingles to top-of-the-line shingles that come with a lifetime guarantee, from simple 15-lb black paper to self-adhesive membrane. The same holds true for multi-layer, black paper, asphalt and gravel roofs.
Information Concerning Asphalt Shingles
I would say that we have seen significant changes in the models, the look and the guarantees associated with shingles since around 1995-2000. Appearance and longevity are very important aspects when choosing a new roof today. The look, model and colour of the shingles are crucial components of the visual aspect of a home and its harmony with the surrounding environment. Laminated fibreglass shingles now hold a significant share of the roofing market because of their attractiveness and durability. The variety of models and life expectancy of shingles are similar from one manufacturer to the next, but when it comes verifying the warranties and their clauses, it is important to study the fine print and pay a great deal of attention to the wording (personal opinion, information available upon request).
In addition, it is important to ensure that the wooden framing has been properly prepared to receive the self-adhesive sub-layers, the synthetic fabric and the attic ventilator before installing shingles, based on the standards for installing shingles that applies to the surface area of the building. The work should be carried out by a certified contactor that is authorized to issue the manufacturer’s most comprehensive warranties.
We do business with two multinational shingle manufacturers. In my opinion, one of them offers a superior warranty, whereas the other does not explain its warranty.
However, it is up to the consumer to make an informed choice when it comes to a new shingled roof that may be covered by a solid lifetime guarantee.
