Frequently asked questions about roofing
When should I have my roof inspected?
We recommend that you inspect your roof twice a year; normally in the fall and spring. It’s also a good idea to inspect your roof after major weather events that involve high winds. Doing these inspec0ons will help prevent minor roof damage from leading to serious problems that can cause leaks and damage to the interior of your home.
Is it possible to extend the life of a roof?
Yes, but this requires maintenance, such as:
- Keeping the gutters clean to prevent unnecessary water damage to the underlying eave decking.
- Removing debris from the roof (i.e. tree branches and leaves).
- Re-sealing the chimney counter flashing and plumbing pipe roof penetrations.
When is the best time to install a roof?
Normally the spring or fall are best, when the temperatures are mild. Keep in mind that these times are busy for roofers so it’s best to try to book your consultation or installation early.
Can I inspect my own roof?
We don’t recommend that homeowners do inspections because not only can you risk a serious injury, you could miss subtle cracks or other forms of damage.
How do I know whether I should repair or replace my roof?
You’ll know that you need to replace your roof, rather than repair it if you’re seeing the following:
- Continuous leaks despite repairs.
- Leaks in several locations.
- If new leaks keep appearing despite repair work.
How much does a new roof cost?
