EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: This is a long story to say how great Jason and his team at Canadian Roofing are, but in short: These people do truly professional work that stands the test of time, and they do more than roofing. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
FULL-LENGTH VERSION: Last fall I looked at ceiling water damage in my living room and realized I couldn’t ignore it anymore. I needed to call Jason at Canadian Roofing (who has done great work roofing and fixing flat roofs at my home) to deliver the bad news. Jason in fact gave me GREAT news after a thorough inspection of my upper roof and damage in my living room. It was my 2nd floor window causing the damage in the living room, not my entire roof. Massive relief, and an indication of this roofer’s honesty – the roof didn’t need replacing; my window did. But he came through to help anyway. He said he could assist me with window replacement and ceiling repair. I wanted European tilt-and-turn windows. Could he do that? Turns out he could: He connected me with a Dante Casasanta who distributes the Estonian-produced Viking Windows, very well-made, energy-efficient and beautiful tilt-and-turn windows. So beautiful I ended up purchasing a window for the second floor and living room plus a door. It took a long time for them to ship from Estonia (four months), but they were installed this spring. Jason put together a great team to do a stunning job: Vas and his team installed the windows and doors and Vas demonstrated master carpentry skills with beautiful trim on the inside and superb masonry talents on the exterior befitting the home’s time period. Jason literally went the extra mile – make that hundreds - to find angel stone to match the front of my home to finish off the outside trim. Kevin of Canadian Roofing did an outstanding job of repairing my living room ceiling, removing the stucco and painting the living room and hall after door and window installation. He also sanded, stained and varnished the pine interior trim to match the natural oak finish of the windows. It is a phenomenally professional finish. After a mishap with the doorframe, Jason and Kevin hastened to repair it seamlessly through a furniture repair expert. Of course – being a demanding client and seeing how beautiful the windows and doors were – I asked Jason if his roofing team could provide new siding and eavestroughs and soffits on the front of my home. James and John of Canadian Roofing to the rescue. In the process, they revealed beautiful cedar shingle trim above my second-floor window. I asked Kevin if it could be painted the same colour as my beautiful new door. He literally went above and beyond and scaled a very tall ladder to paint the cedar shingles the beautiful wine red of my door. Gorgeous. These guys are great. Special thanks to Jason, Kevin and Vas for extra help and support you’ve provided me through a very custom project that I am so proud to call my home!
