It is important to establish and follow a professionally designed preventive roof maintenance program to ensure your new or existing roof is always looking and performing its best. Constant exposure to the sun and Canada’s harsh climate are two of the biggest reasons a roof will fail. Roof inspections are necessary to diagnose and resolve any potential issues with your roof before they become major ones. A preventive maintenance program consists of at least two roof inspections a year, completed in the spring and fall, coupled with minor repairs to your roofing system if necessary.
Our thorough roof inspections consist of; clearing drains and downspouts of any blockages, checking your roof and flashing for penetrations or tears, inspecting vents to ensure a solid and leak free seal, while also looking for any other damage to the system. Some minor, but common issues with roofing systems include; blistering, penetrations, cracking, lifting, loose flashing and sometimes, even small animals can damage your roof. Having your roof cleared of built up snow will also help avoid damage caused by accumulating ice. Although it can begin as minor, if left unchecked and unrepaired these issues can develop into major problems for your roof. It is important to hire a qualified roofing contractor to complete a thorough inspection and any necessary repairs.
Regular maintenance can be the biggest difference maker between a roof that lasts 10 years and 25 years. Give us a call today to schedule your maintenance consultation!
