Sarnia Ontario Residential Home Flat Roof Shingle Tie-in

This week we were in Sarnia Ontario during one of the most humid weeks we’ve had this summer! 28 degrees, feels like 42. Great day to be up on a roof! Luckily for us this home was near the water front of Lake Huron, so the super hot day was made a little livable thanks to the lake breeze. This project was doing a flat roof on a residential home, about 700 square feet. Most of the clients issues are […]

This week we were out in Strathroy Ontario… during a heatwave! We received a call from a residential client who owns a 4 season sunroom, which was designed to be used all year around.
