Certified Roofers

11 Benefits of Hiring Certified Roofers in the GTA

Under the Ontario Building Code 2006 (OBC) which was amended in March 2012, some roof repairs require a professional who has a city of Toronto license as well as Ontario College of Trades certification while some can be done without a professional or even a permit.

Section 8 of the Building Code Act, which can be found on OBC Division C - Part 1 Administrative Provisions, Subsection 1.3.1., gives roofing and other building works that require a permit and those that do not.

You need a permit if the roofing replacement or repair requires structural alterations to the building, the demolition or removal of the roof, or installation or reconstruction of the chimney. You do not need a license to re-shingle a roof (if there are no structural works), to do minor repairs to the chimney, to install skylights in Part 9 buildings, or to install eavestroughs (as long as drainage will be contained on your property).

DIY roof replacement or repair where the code expressly states should be done by a professional could attract fines and you could even be required to undo/pull down the work done. There are several reasons why you should hire a pro even for the jobs that you have a right to do yourself.

Warranty on Workmanship

You will get a warranty on the workmanship. At BRENO Roofing Inc., we give you 15-year full coverage warranty. This has you completely covered because research shows that roofing problems due to workmanship manifest themselves within the first year of roofing.

Manufacturer Warranty

For you to qualify for most manufacturer warranties, the installation or repair must have been done by a certified and licensed roofing contractor. Hiring a pro is, therefore, important because quality roofing materials do not come cheap. At BRENO Roofing, we are certified by some of the top manufacturers in Canada.

Home Insurance

Do you have home insurance? If you don’t, you should get it immediately. Home insurance indemnifies you in case of damage or complete destruction of the home, ensuring you are not left homeless. It also covers contents and even home businesses.

It goes without saying that for insurance companies to protect themselves, they require that you do your part to take care of the home. Most insurance companies require that most major repairs and replacements, including roof repair and replacement, be done by a professional. Hiring us for roofing repairs and replacement, therefore, prevents problems with your home insurer.

Workman’s Compensation Insurance

We have workman’s compensation insurance for all our roofers. This is important because if any of the workers is injured while working at your home, you will not be held liable. With DIY roof repair and replacement, you risk breaking your bank if you hire a team of casuals and one is injured.

Liability Insurance

We carry liability insurance that covers your property and belongings during the duration of the project. Roofing repairs and replacements obviously pose a risk to your home and belongings since tools and roofing materials can fall in anytime. With DIY repairs and replacements, you may end up incurring a huge cost.

Cost Benefits

You actually save money when you hire us. This is because you do not have to buy the tools, equipment, and safety gear necessary for a roof repair or replacement, which can be very costly. Hiring us also saves you money because we know where to get roofing materials and supplies at a good price, something you are unlikely to know.

Experience/Quality Workmanship

At BRENO Roofing, we have been doing roofing repairs and replacements for about 18 years now. Our team has experience in different types of roofs, including the most common in Ontario which are shingles, flat roofs, and corrugated roofs. Other than roofing repairs and replacements, we also offer related services such as eavestroughs repairs and replacements, leaf guard installation, soffit replacements, and roof tune-ups. Our team is composed of roofers with different skills, knowledge and years of experience. You are unlikely to have all these skills, even if you have been trained as a roofer.

Experience is important because roofing repairs start with the assessment of structures. Without a keen eye, you may fail to accurately identify damage and deterioration, leading to replacement where a repair was required, and vice versa. You also risk further damaging the roof or the new roofing materials if you do the repairs without the necessary experience. We understand the local climatic conditions which can be extreme and we will advise you on the best roofing materials and the best time to do repairs.


Hiring us gives you unparalleled convenience. Roof repair and replacement can take a long time and is often quite involving. It will eat into work time and prevent you from enjoying quality family time. At BRENO Roofing, we work under minimal supervision and you do not even have to be around when we are doing roof repairs or replacements.

24/7 Service

At BRENO Roofing, we serve the GTA (Toronto, Mississauga, North York, Markham, Vaughan, Milton, Oakville, Brampton, Maple, Richmond Hill, Thornhill, Scarborough, Etobicoke, and Woodbridge) around the clock. Some roofing emergencies such as leaky roofs cannot wait. Doing midnight repairs yourself is a security and safety risk.

Codes and Permits

We understand all the relevant codes and regulations in Ontario, meaning there is no risk of finding yourself on the wrong side of the law. We also know the permits that different roofing jobs require and where to get them.


At BRENO Roofing, one of our services is cleaning up. As you can imagine, roof repairs and replacements generate a lot of debris and getting rid of this debris is both time and energy consuming. We cover all your content and clean up after each roofing day to make your home habitable during the roofing process.
