Pigeon Lake Cottage

December in Alberta – best time for roofing cottage, isn’t it? =)

Black tiles roof

Itaska Beach, Pigeon Lake, Cottage, Black tiles roof


The project I will tell you about was exactly across the road from the one we did couple months ago. It was on our favorite Pigeon Lake, so we were enjoying amazing views of the lake through the entire project. This time we were installing roof on a brand new cottage still being in construction. That brought us a number of challenges. First challenge we had, was no power at site. But not a problem – we can provide up to 10 kW of portable power when needed.

The other challenge was that we had to work over trusses. Builder did not install any decking whatsoever. It was an unpleasant surprise but not a huge problem. Let’s see how it looked  when we first arrived on site.

In situations like this one, it’s mandatory to install synthetic underlayment. This membrane serves couple of the roles. First – it allows roof to breath through the soffit. Second – protects inside of the house from any condensation occurring on metal during rapid temperature changes. This is very important factor, due to any metal roof “sweats”, even when it is installed over strapping like in this case.

To make navigation easier we decided to install underlayment and framing simultaneously. It was a big win,  since in a couple of hours we were able to finally stand still.

We made sure that membrane overlaps well on hips and on horizontal framing of the house. This resulted in  30% more use of the membrane. Our framing made house a bit more stronger and stable. And in the end of the day we had a chance to enjoy amazing views of Pigeon Lake.

We made all the pipes and intakes water- tight. But also did extra framing around to make these weak points stronger and safer. Next step was to begin installation on starters and valley.

So now we were ready for paneling.  Note how all the pipes and goosenecks are done. Since we use nibbler (not grinder), we can guarantee that paint on fresh cuts will be safe. It is especially important on areas like valley, where fresh cut is exposed to water and ice. Note how snow guards cover the entire perimeter. This will protect gutters and owners for many years from any sliding snow. Here are the pictures

And here are couple of shots of the cottage when we were done. I am sure that our customers will enjoy their cottage for years with our roof and these breathtaking views of the lake.

This policy applies to Pagonya Development Ltd and to any person providing services on our behalf. A copy of this policy is provided to any customer upon request.

What is personal information? Personal information means information about an identifiable individual. This includes an individual’s name, home address and phone number, an identifying number, and financial information.

What personal information do we collect? We collect only the personal information that we need for the purposes of providing services to our clients, including personal information needed to:

  • deliver requested products and services
  • provide product or service quotes

We normally collect client personal information directly from our clients. We may collect your information from other persons with your consent or as authorized by law.

We inform our clients, before or at the time of collecting personal information, of the purposes for which we are collecting the information. The only time we don’t provide this notification is when a client volunteers information for an obvious purpose (for example, when the customer leaves the information on our website requesting a quote).

Consent We ask for consent to collect, use or disclose client personal information, except in specific circumstances where collection, use or disclosure without consent is authorized or required by law. We may assume your consent in cases where you volunteer information for an obvious purpose.

We assume your consent to continue to use and, where applicable, disclose personal information that we have already collected, for the purpose for which the information was collected.

We ask for your express consent for some purposes and may not be able to provide certain services if you are unwilling to provide consent to the collection, use or disclosure of certain personal information. Where express consent is needed, we will normally ask clients to provide their consent orally( in person or by telephone) or in writing(by signing consent form).

In cases that do not involve sensitive personal information, we may rely on “opt-out” consent. For example, we may disclose your contact information to other organizations that we believe may be of interest to you, unless you request that we do not disclose your information. You can do this by contacting us over the phone or by email.

A client may withdraw consent to the use and disclosure of personal information at any time, unless the personal information is necessary for us to fulfil our legal obligations. We will respect your decision, but we may not be able to provide you with certain products and services if we do not have the necessary personal information.

We may collect, use or disclose client personal information without consent only as authorized by law. For example, we may not request consent when the collection, use or disclosure is in an emergency that threatens life, health or safety.

How do we use and disclose personal information? We use and disclose client personal information only for the purpose, for which the information was collected, except as authorized by law. For example, we may use client contact information to deliver goods.

If we wish to use or disclose your personal information for any new business purpose, we will ask for your consent. We do not share or sell any client information to the third parties. We may not seek consent if the law allows this (e.g. the law allows organizations to use personal information without consent for the purpose of collecting a debt).

How do we safeguard personal information? We make every reasonable effort to ensure that personal information is accurate and complete. We rely on individuals to notify us if there is a change to their personal information that may affect their relationship with our organization. If you are aware of an error in our information about you, please let us know and we will correct it on request wherever possible. In some cases, we may ask for a written request for correction.

We protect personal information in a manner appropriate for the sensitivity of the information. We make every reasonable effort to prevent any loss, misuse, disclosure or modification of personal information, as well as any unauthorized access to personal information.

We use appropriate security measures when destroying personal information, including shredding paper records and permanently deleting electronic records.

We retain personal information only as long as is reasonable to fulfil the purposes for which the information was collected or for legal or business purposes.

Access to records containing personal information Individuals have a right to access their own personal information in a record that is in the custody or under the control of Pagonya Development Ltd, subject to some exceptions. For example, organizations are required under the Personal Information Protection Act to refuse to provide access to information that would reveal personal information about another individual.

If we refuse a request in whole or in part, we will provide the reasons for the refusal. In some cases where exceptions to access apply, we may withhold that information and provide you with the remainder of the record.

You may make a request for access to your personal information by writing to Ilya Myshalou, CEO. You must provide sufficient information in your request to allow us to identify the information you are seeking.

You may also request information about our use of your personal information and any disclosure of that information to persons outside our organization. In addition, you may request a correction of an error or omission in your personal information.

We will respond to your request within 45 calendar days, unless an extension is granted. We may charge a reasonable fee to provide information, but not to make a correction.
