Taking care of your roof
The durability of any roof covering greatly depends on how well it is maintained. For a flat roof, cleaning the drains, checking and repairing cracks in the low walls, as well as ventilation inspections are important actions to take to keep your roof in good condition… for as long as possible! For an asphalt shingle roof, it’s important to ensure the maintenance of gutters for water draining, but also to check the state of the shingles and the accumulation of leaves in the valleys, for example, which can cause the roof to degrade faster.
Quickly making the necessary repairs on flat or asphalt shingle roofs, especially in the case of a water infiltration, can significantly prolong your roof’s lifespan. However, badly done or neglected work can shorten it, as well as open the door to rotting and mould, which require structural repairs on a larger scale. That’s why it is so important to trust a professional to maintain your roof.
Removing snow from roofs
It is also imperative to remove the snow from your roof when there are significant snowfalls: the transformation of water into ice during important changes in temperature, makes cracks larger and can penetrate under the shingles. Removing the accumulation of snow on the roof helps to prevent these kinds of damages. Avoid infiltrations and cracks, and prevent your roof from caving under the weight of snow and ice: trust us with regular roof inspections and maintenance, as well as snow removal in winter. Grow your investment: keep your roof for longer!
