Calgary roofing is as unique as the city itself with its own climate and weather systems. From hail to 50 kilometer winds to direct sunlight, United Roofing has you covered in all seasons.
As the snow melts and we move into spring weather, signs of winter weather damage may become more evident on your roof. At first glance the damage may be hard to detect, but doing a thorough inspection is crucial to the longevity of your roof and home.
Here are some helpful tips to aid you in evaluating any potential winter damage:
What do you do if you suspect damage, leaking, or rot? After completing a thorough self-inspection calling in a professional Calgary roofer is your next best step. It is important to have a trained professional examine any potential areas of concern. As experienced Calgary roofers we are familiar with the common and even irregular wear and tear of Calgary roofs.
Once your roof has been inspected and had any winter damaged repaired, it is time to prepare for spring. In Calgary, that means anything can happen: snow, frost, hail and wind. In short, spring is the most turbulent season for your roof.
Here are some useful tips to protect your roof against the spring:
With all self directed roof inspections; be sure to make safety your first priority. Do not go on to your roof if the weather conditions do not permit. Be aware of all potential hazards and have safety measures in place while conducting your inspection. If you cannot confidently ensure your own safety, have a professional do the inspection on your behalf.
Overall, your best bet at maintaining the health, functionality and longevity of your home is to facilitate regular inspections either on your own or with the assistance of a qualified roofing professional, like us at United Roofing, your Calgary roofing pros.
