What goes into Replacing a Roof?

Re-roofing (or roof replacement) is integral to exterior home renovations. A roof replacement can take place alongside other exterior renovations, too. These include siding replacement or replacing all the smaller parts needed for a roof in Calgary. And an essential part of those roof replacements or renovations is all the components that make up your home’s roofing system.

Blind River Construction in Calgary offers experienced roofing services alongside additional exterior home renovations. Here they explain the components of your roofing system.

Roof shingles

Roof shingles come in a wide range of materials, with asphalt being the most common in Calgary roof construction. A new roof made with asphalt shingles can add a unique style to your home’s exterior. Asphalt shingles come in a wide array of colour and shape options. Wood and cedar shake roof shingles are other types in Calgary homes. In addition, metal roofing is an excellent investment if you’re looking for a durable, low-maintenance roof that will last for decades.

Blind River Construction has over 15 years of experience with exterior renovations and with different types of shingles. Their expert team can help replace the entire roof or replace only the shingles.


The soffit can refer to the underside of different including roofing. A soffit is used anywhere a roof extends beyond the size of the house. You see it when you look up from your front porch, balcony, or side of the house. You may notice holes in the soffits. This is normal, as soffits provide the roof space with proper ventilation! If your soffit is damaged, it’s worth getting it repaired or replaced.


The facia is the bottom edging that connects to eavestroughs and downspouts. It looks like a simple border on the outside of a house. And it gives the roof a finished look. New facia does, however, play a vital role. For example, they allow for proper water drainage and protect the frame’s wood rafters from the weather. If you suspect issues with facia, you can count on the expertise of Blind River construction in roof replacement or an inspection. In addition, a review can help identify any other issues, including facia.

Eavestroughs and downspouts

These roof pieces carry water away from the roof and the house’s foundation. Professional eavestrough and downspout installation are important to the structural integrity of your home. These components can be susceptible to weather damage, so you should check them at the change of season to ensure they’re in good working order. Blind River Construction can bring your roof replacement from start to finish with professional eavestrough installation.

Framing and insulation

Home and garage roof frames are made of wood and determine the shape and slope of the roof. In addition, the frame will hold in all the insulation and is the structural base of the roof.
