WSIB and Roofing
At Feeney Roofing we are always looking out for our employees and the homeowners. Homeowners usually don’t realize that at Feeney Roofing we ensure all our staff has been trained to understand all safety requirements issued by WSIB.
We want our employees to not only do the job correctly but as safely as they can. When we come out to your property to do an inspection we ensure we have all the proper equipment and follow all the appropriate safety measures. Once we do the inspection we go over all the details so the homeowner understands everything in detail.
WSIB Common Mistake
One question that we receive periodically from homeowners is “why is another company much lower”? In almost all cases companies that offer a much better price, turnaround time and alternative payment methods are companies that do shortcuts in the workmanship and probably do not have WSIB.
How Weather, Covid, and WSIB can affect your decision in choosing a Roofing company in Peterborough Ontario.

Covid, Roofing, and Timelines
Feeney Roofing strives to provide excellent customer service with our experts that have years of experience. Covid-19 has made it extremely difficult for businesses to operate at their full capacity, but roofing remains essential during these unprecedented times. We are working at full capacity and are following all guidelines to provide services for our clients. We continue to wear masks during work and are continuing social distancing practices.
We ask that our clients wear a mask when interacting with staff so that we continue to have a safe working environment. As we are moving to stage three we are still doing what the government requires for your safety and for our employees. Even though we are moving to stage three this does not mean we can move faster. The roofing industry is also having an issue getting materials for roofing jobs which affects timelines.
We are doing our best to ensure materials get in on time and meet the deadlines for our clients. If you do have to push your job back please have patients with the understanding that we are doing everything we can to meet the needs of our clients during these troubling times.
Weather and Roofing

Flat Roof Education

Typically, in Ontario, flat and low slope roofs are less common as the precipitation is usually high. This means that finding the right expert for your flat roof with the proper experience can be difficult. Feeney Roofing can provide experts that have worked with flat and low sloped roofs for decades so that your building will stay leak–free and insulated for years to come. Many materials can be used for flat roofs ranging from asphalt to synthetic rubbers depending on the style and requirements of the building.
Many flat or sloped roofs in Ontario are used for living spaces to experience the outside in places where there isn’t much property. Roof living spaces require proper care for both an aesthetic appeal and safety for the people using them. Many commercial buildings in Ontario also use flat or low sloped roofs which our experts have decades of experience with replacing, repairing, and installing.
