Firon Roofing can provide roof related specialized carpentry for your property in the Ottawa area.
A roof does not just consist of a waterproof cover; there are a lot of other types of work involved in installing a professionally finished product. In many cases, when removing an old roof the underlying substrate (roofing supports) are rotten, and in need of replacement. Underneath this substrate is the main roof rafters that do the job of supporting the weight of the main roof plus any snow or ice that may rest on it.

It is essential that this work is completed to a high professional level, as if there is a problem here, then the whole roof is in danger of failing. This is especially true for flat roofs that are subject to people walking, or have heavy machinery situated on them.
