Why Winter-Proof your Roof?

When was the last time you had your roof inspected? With the weather seeming to get more turbulent with each passing year, you should be getting your roof inspected annually by a reputable residential roofer in Etobicoke or Mississauga. And now’s the perfect time to do it. Roof repair, maintenance, and replacement in Etobicoke and Mississauga are best done in the fall before the cold weather settles in!

Let’s take a look at four reasons why it’s best to ensure your roof is in peak condition before winter:

  1. Residential roofers in Etobicoke and Mississauga are busy! Many homeowners delay getting work done on their roofs when the weather is good because there don’t appear to be any problems. But winter has a way of uncovering a roof’s weaknesses. This means roofers are very busy in winter doing emergency roof repairs in Etobicoke and Mississauga that should have been done in summer or fall. This could mean longer wait times and higher costs for you in winter. Don’t wait for a little problem to become an emergency situation in the dead of winter!
  2. Keep pests out. Late fall is the time of year when vermin look for warm places to overwinter. If your roof is not in peak condition, it could leave just enough of an opening for insects, mice and birds to find their way into your home for the winter.
  3. Ensure you stay dry. Autumn is the perfect time to get your roof repaired or replaced in Etobicoke or Mississauga. For best results, remove the old layer of shingles and asphalt paper. This allows the roofers to fully inspect and repair the roof deck and apply a self-adhering ice and water shield. This serves as an extra barrier against water and helps prevent ice dams along the roof edge. If you nail new shingles over the old ones, not only will you not benefit from the advantages listed above, but the warranty on the new shingles might be voided.
  4. Brrrrrr… it’s cold out! The problem with asphalt shingles is that they tend to get more brittle when it’s cold and more susceptible to cracking and/or breaking. Your residential roofers in Etobicoke and Mississauga will be on guard to catch any damaged shingles, but if they fail to see a cracked or broken one, it could lead to problems down the road.
