Winter is on the way. Ok Fall is first but now is the best time to ensure everything is in the best condition. Prevention is better than cure. With Fall and Winter around the corner, bad weather is inevitable.
A thorough inspection of your roof is the first thing you need to do. You will be looking for damage such as; broken shingles, cracked flashing, basically anything that might lead to a leak. Do you have an older roof? You might want to organise us to do a survey for you. We can identify any repairs or potential issues.
Clean your gutters. This should be an ongoing chore to be honest. Blocked gutters are the most common cause of roof damage they really do need to be maintained on a regular basis. Are they well attached and the down-pipes connected to drains and in good condition?
Roof leaks at anytime, especially in the middle of Winter is not nice, in fact, they can be quite dangerous. There is so many areas to check; flashings, chimneys, vents – why not get us round to have a look.
Roof maintenance is an important part of owning and caring for a home, especially in Canada because of our harsh winters. We can help and come and inspect for you. Be safe and don’t be one of those that leaves it to the last minute, it isn’t worth it!
