Our residential service provides secure roofing applications to the homes of our customers and is a very essential part of our business. Based in East York, ROOF.TO ensures top-notch roofing services for our residential customers and we cater to all domestic roof building needs for residences in Ontario. These services include sloped applications, shingles, underlayments, custom metal, and other accessories. While our expertise lies in flat roofing, we can also create sloped and low sloped roofs for homes across Toronto’s suburbs.
The sloped roofs of Toronto have been largely clad with asphalt shingles which became ubiquitous after the second war because they were the cheapest and easiest to install. People would have them installed right over worn-out cedar shingle or cracking slate roofs. Today, however, asphalt shingles are lighter, better and still remain the most common choice for a sloped roofing system.
Slate is the original preferred roofing material and with its combination of a proven reputation for extremely long life and unsurpassed regal looks, slate adds value to a house, unlike any other roofing material. A lot of buildings in downtown Toronto have a relatively small sloped front that caps their front exterior. These were almost all slate when the houses were built and nothing can boost the curb appeal more than a fresh installation of high-quality Quebec slate. Since the area is so small many people are surprised at how affordable this practical upgrade can be.
Low sloped roofs are often called flat roofs but actually should not be flat. We have experience in all kinds of commercial and residential low sloped roofs. On older buildings, most of the time we are the first to see the old deck boards for a hundred plus years. We have seen some crazy experiments in so-called flat roofing and have discarded thousands and thousands of square feet of quality materials that were poorly installed and are now useless.
All of our staff are fully trained and certified to work safely on all projects. Every one of our employees is skilled in:
Working at heights

Elevated work platform
We comply with all local laws and ministry of labour requirements while on site at all times. We have a zero-tolerance policy for unsafe work practices, as well as violence and harassment in the workplace.
