Wow! It's that time of year again!
We are now saying hello from our new location at 50 Don Valley Parkway and thanks to you, our great customers and friends we are preparing for another fantastic year of taking care of all of your roofing and home exterior needs.
At Lansard Bros. Roofing we love this time of year! Finally, after getting ready for our next season over the winter months, it's ShowTime! It's kind of like the moment the players step out onto the ice for the first game of the season. We can hardly contain ourselves. We certainly are looking forward to a fantastic year and we are looking forward to meeting you!
The Home Show was a tremendous success for us last year, we were sure glad to have met so many new people and we also had the pleasure of providing our services to many of you, thank you. We had such a great time last year that we are doing it all over again this year. Please come see us at our LBR Booth #1124 at the 2013 Home Expressions Show at the Winnipeg Convention Centre. We will be there on Friday March 15th from 12:00 - 9:00pm, Saturday March 16th from 10:00am - 8:00pm and Sunday March 17th from 12:00 - 5:00pm. We will have some Must See displays and samples available to see and feel. Come by and ask our knowledgeable and experienced staff any home exterior questions, we love to help!
What's a Home Show without some awesome giveaways!? While you're at our booth make sure to enter your ballot in our draw for a chance to win FREE Jets tickets to watch the Jets take on the Boston Bruins! The draw will be held at 3pm on Sunday March 17th, 2013 at our booth. Come be part of the action!
While your at our booth make sure to ask the guys about the Enviroshake displays. This is a truly amazing composite and recycled shingle! It offers the gorgeous look of cedar shakes but with a huge benefit of a clean and consistent look for years. We love this product because of its superior qualities as a roofing material and the fact that it is very enviromentally friendly.
We truly hope to see you at our booth and we look forward to serving you this summer! Remember, the best time to book your roofing project is NOW at the beginning of spring! Then, let us take care of your exterior home renovations while you enjoy the summer!
And until next time! "We look forward to serving you!"

We’d like to announce that as of March 1, 2013 Lansard Bros Roofing will officially be in our new location at 50 Don Valley Parkway just off of Gunn Rd. near the East Perimeter!
Thanks to you Manitoba we’ve outgrown our current location and in order to be of best service and value to you, our growing customer base, we’ve built a larger home base from which to serve you.
We’re excited to welcome you into our new open concept display centre and Customer Care Area! You’ll be able to enjoy a warm coffee while comfortably selecting the style and colors that best suit your home from a large variety of complete home exterior renovation products while in the company of our familiar friendly and expert staff! Our familiar professionally trained staff are looking forward to carefully going over every detail of your home renovation project with you in the comfort of our Customer Care Area. We are a stone’s throw away from the East Perimeter so getting to you for an in home visit is a breeze.
We’ve built a new shop which includes our Metal Shop in which we fabricate all kinds of custom metal flashings and cladding products from basic to specialty pieces that can make almost any exterior component of your home or business maintenance free.
Lansard Bros. Roofing has been committed to doing everything we can to be environmentally conscious and to be pro-active when it comes to creating a better environment for us all. For years now, we’ve been dumping our shingle debris at Greensite! Greensite is a shingle disposal company which recycles discarded asphalt shingles for use in things such as road pavement. While selecting a location on which to build our new offices, it was important to us to keep our environmental efforts in mind. So, we built our new office just around the corner from Greensite. That means that LBR’s environmental footprint will grow even smaller due to the large decrease in fuel emissions in order to dump the recyclable shingles. Every little bit helps!
Till next time, please stop by for a visit. And remember, “We look forward to serving you!”

That’s right! With winter upon us what could be better!
We will be drawing the winning customers name on November 30, 2012 at 1:30 PM at our office at 5-1375 Niakwa Rd. East.

Again, we want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your support and for taking the time to fill out our online customer survey. We appreciate your feedback; it is a very important to us and the continued attention to customer relations we are proud of.
We encourage you to come on down to our office on November 30 for the draw, we’d love to see you! The winner of the trip for 2 to Mexico will be posted on our website. That might be you!
Till next time, good luck in the draw and remember, “We look forward to serving you!”

Well, what about hail? It seems that almost every summer Manitoba gets hit with sizeable hail in one part of the province or another. Winnipeg included seems to get it almost every year. Unlike your vehicle, if you're lucky enough to be able to park your car in your garage prior to it getting pelted by hail, your roof is not a lucky. Hail storms will range in intensity and size of hail, from pea size to quarter size or golf ball size (those ones do damage!). Although not all hail will damage your roof, it's a good idea to take a look at your shingles and eavestrough after a hail storm to ensure that your shingles have not been damaged to the point that they will pre-maturely age.
A hail storm is normally coming from one direction as it swoops by so, some roofs will only show signs of hail damage on certain slopes which are impacted more directly by the hail, whereas lower pitched roofs will at times show damage to all slopes. Depending on the age of the shingle or more specifically how brittle it has become due to aging, the more damaged it may become. We have found over the years that a newer roof will withstand the beating from a smaller sized hail stone, whereas older roofs will suffer damages. Remember that just because your roof did get hit by hail doesn't mean that the shingles are damaged. I say this because one of the biggest misunderstandings we deal with after a hail storm is when one neighbor is getting their roof replaced through insurance and the other neighbor right next door isn't! The situation is likely that the shingles on the one house did not withstand the hail storm and the other one did. Although we are fortunate enough to be able to buy insurance on our roofs against hail damage it is quite a chore when it is not planned not to mention those darn deductibles which still need to get paid.
Shingle manufacturers have developed hail resistant shingles which are a little more expensive but certainly worth it in an area periodically hit by hail. For more information about these products, simply contact one of our experienced representatives and they'll be glad to go over these products with you.
Another item that tends to get damaged by hail is aluminum eavestroughs and downpipes. When we perform hail inspections we take a good look at the eavestrough as well as any metal cladding such as fascia or window cladding, this is all covered by insurance in most cases. As part of our service with respect to hail inspection we do a thorough inspection of all slopes, take photos of all damages and provide an inspection report complete with a cost of replacement. We have been dealing with most insurance companies over many years and have developed good relationships with them based on integrity and honesty.
Our recommendation at Lansard Bros Roofing is that if you suspect that your shingles may be damaged by hail, contact us through our website at lansard.ca, fill out our request a quote form and let us take care of things for you. I hope this Blog has answered some questions you many have had about hail damage, if you have any other questions, we'd love to talk with you, just call us at 204-233-4664 and we'll be glad to help.
Till next time! Take care and stay out of Hail!
