Improper maintenance is your roof’s worst enemy
Many problems begin as minor issues, an overhanging tree branch or a backed up gutter, but turn into major repair work if not corrected. The experts in roof repair at FineLines Roofing & Renovations are dedicated to helping all of Ottawa with their roofing issues. We have been in business for over 30 years and we specialize in residential roofing. Our experience allows us to help you with all the common roofing problems, and even some of the less-common ones.
The repairing process generally depends on what part of your roof needs repairs. Repairing or replacing a gutter is a simple process, generally as easy as unclogging downspouts, clearing debris, and making minor repairs, whereas replacing the shingles takes a lot longer. Shingles and fascia can rot over time and will eventually need replacing to make sure mold and moisture don’t ruin the rest of your roof and home. FineLines Roofing & Renovations is your go-to company in Ottawa for roof repairs.

Following our inspection, we will determine the appropriate course of action to take.

See How Your Ottawa Home’s Ventilation Systems Measures Up
A good ventilation system is important to help minimize heat buildup in the summer as well as moisture and ice dam formation in the winter. Keep your attic in a state of equilibrium all year-round by calling FineLines Roofing & Renovations to install or improve your existing attic ventilation system.
Inspect your attic and look for signs of improper ventilation such as black wood from years of moisture buildup or frost visible on the underside of the roof deck. Lack of intake ventilation can cause serious condensation problems which will eventually rot the wooden roof deck making your roof structurally unsafe. A well-built roof should maintain the outside temperature while keeping the moisture out.
As part of FineLines Roofing & Renovations attic ventilation service, we may need to install baffles (also known as wind baffles) which allow air to flow through various parts of your attic. Insulation also plays a vital role in an attic ventilation system. Shifted or misplaced insulation does not protect from drafts and creates spaces for air to travel and moisture to become trapped.
Reduce Moisture in Your Ottawa Home—Have Your Exhaust Vent Inspected
Make sure that all exhaust vents are vented to the outside of your house, not into the attic space. Although your attic space may be a cold zone, isolated from the warm interior of your house, it cannot efficiently rid itself of moisture without the assistance of exhaust vents.
Steamy showers can be a relaxing way to unwind, however, without an exhaust fan to eliminate the hot air, mold can begin to accumulate. If the bathroom is vented into the attic space itself, the moisture will buildup and decrease the life of your shingles as well as rot the roof deck and trusses.
Not only do you need the roof itself ventilated, all exhaust hoses need to lead outside. All vents need to be separate from one another, this means you cannot bring more than one vent into a common vent stack because one may overpower the other and feed the moist air back through the weaker intake.
Repel Water & Extend the Life of Your Roof with Chimney Flashing
There are over a dozen types of flashing on your roof but the chimney flashing is probably one of the most important when it comes to the longevity of your roof. All flashing including chimney flashing is meant to repel water away from areas that regular roofing materials cannot. The chimney and roof deck connection may be the cause of many problems including roof-rot and interior water damage, some of which could be going on for years without your knowledge.
What to Look For
If you have a multi-layer roof installing flashing could present a challenge. At times, the only solution is to change the roof designs to improve roof drainage. In some cases, in order to properly install flashing we may need to remove the siding.
