Roofing

We shopped around earlier in the year to find someone who could manage replacing our roof, which had been at the end of its life. We chose J Stewart because of the detailed advice they provided about what would be required to properly insulate and level our back roof, which was a concern.

The crew were friendly, professional and thoughtful, and worked very hard during a really hot week in the summer. They were respectful of our home and the grounds, and were (unexpectedly) minimally disruptive as we were both working from home with videoconferences at the time.

When the job was done, they walked us through it to ensure we were satisfied, and answered any questions we have. We feel confident that the roof is solid and will last for many years, and in particular, will lessen our energy costs going forward.

Thanks to everyone at J Stewart.

New roof on old house in Riverdale

I own a small, old, annoying house in Riverdale on a street with almost no parking. I was recommended to this company by a neighbour. John and his team are familiar with the neighbourhood and well prepared for challenges of working in the cramped spaces and with old houses. John is an excellent communicator and was clear about every step. He provided photos of the job in progress and answered the questions I had. Roofing is loud messy work but his crew left the area clean and the neighbours didnt complain. I am happy I chose this company.

Excellent Experience

John identified the source of a leak as the flashing around our chimney and plumbing stacks. Since the shingles also needed to be replaced, we opted to have the entire slope reshingled. They also removed the chimney stack, since it was not being used and was in poor shape, and installed three new vents. They were reasonable priced, pleasant to deal with, and left everything tidy after they were done.

Above and beyond expectations

I must say what a pleasure it is dealing with John as a contractor.
His team 5 years ago was cheerful and responsible in redoing the shingles on our roofs.
This week he went really went the extra mile popping by and dealing with my clogged downspout (even gave me a mini lesson on how to cope in the future without needing help). So glad someone recommended him to me , now I'm paying that forward for anyone seeking a great service company.

Shingle Roof Replacement

I am extremely happy with the work done by J Stewart Roofing. John came to my house to discuss options and submitted a quote the next day. The team that performed the work was very professional and conscientious. They protected the property from any damage from falling debris and they cleaned up so well after that I couldn't tell that they were here at all. They also coordinated seamlessly with a skylight installation that was being done at the same time by Skylights Unlimited. The roofing work was expected to take 2 days, but they found issues on my roof that added 2 more days to the job. John didn't raise the price, and when I asked him about that, he replied "that's ok, the work is complete and I'm glad you're happy with the results". My neighbour was impressed, and contacted them to work on her roof.

Removed snow and ice from roof

We decided to remove three large ice dams from our roof after the last big snow/ice storm. We were concerned about water leaking into the house and so had a very transparent and informative conversation with the owner John. He talked us through his honest risk assessment and sent over a team the following day. They were fast, respectful and thorough (from what we could see) and we have had no issues with water leaks since. It was a big relief to have the roof clear when it started to snow again a few days later. Highly recommend this company!

replaced roof, dormer siding and fascia

John and his company are professional, competent and reliable. This was a more complex job than usual as the roof had 2 layers of shingles and the 3 dormers had 4 layers of roofing on the base of them. The project took 5 days and each day the team did excellent clean up. John spoke with us every day about what they were working on and what the next steps were. They are perfectionists and did an excellent job. They finished the work on our house before they moved to their next project. I highly recommend them if you want a top notch job!

Roof replacement/repair

Highly recommend. John was great at explaining what work needed to be done and gave us the best of three quotes on the repair. The repair was done quickly and professionally and we are very happy with both the customer service and quality of work.

John is an experienced roofer having started roofing at a very young age he learned the basics of roofing and gradually became proficient in both shingling and then flat roofing. These two very different types of roofs require a different knowledge base and a real understanding of this can only be gained through actual hands-on work, so that one can see exactly how the materials work together and why.

Flat roofs are particularly tricky to do and have become a specialty for J. Stewart Roofing Ltd. (For further details check out the newspaper article from the Toronto Star on this website. It is vital to gain real knowledge of the materials & techniques to not get stuck in just one way of doing things and stop there. Larry and John know how important it is to always keep up with the new roofing materials being invented and how they actually work in the field. In this way they have gained a greater library of knowledge on which to draw from, enabling them to know what combination of materials best for each unique customer’s job are presented to them.
