In the previous blog, we discussed how to prepare your home against the Ontario weather. The general weather patterns are cold and rainy, so it’s very important that your home’s roofing is weather-resistant and strong. In part two of this blog series, Century Roofing and Siding discusses how important roof reinforcement is to your home.
The Importance of Roof Maintenance
Maintaining your roof isn’t always about appearance and home value; it’s also about making sure it’s ready to handle anything that Mother Nature decides to throw at your home.
We previously mentioned how straining it is to your roof when heat and rain mix. One way to strengthen your roof is to observe regular maintenance. As we always say: regular maintenance is the key to a long-lasting roof.
Never Skip on Roof Repair
One thing you should never forget when it comes to reinforcing your roof is to have even the smallest problems repaired. It’s easy to forget that snow, if left alone, can actually be strong enough to loosen up the shingles on your roof. It could even cause water damage when it melts.
Our company recommends getting roof repair work at least once every month – even moreso when your house experiences a snowstorm or a torrent of rain. Roof damage tends to accumulate unnoticed, and it’s easy to miss the warning signs to take action.
Is it Time to Reroof?
Getting your old roof replaced with a new one is one thing, but there are times when you may need to go for a completely new one. If you feel that your current roof shingles aren’t exactly performing well anymore under elemental duress, then have a completely new one installed.
When you work with a professional roofing contractor like us, we make it a point to do a sit down with you to discuss your potential roofing options. We take into account not just the performance of the roof, but also the aesthetics in accordance with your house’s design.
Keep these in mind to ensure that your roof stays weather-resistant and keeps the elements outside. We provide roofing repair and maintenance to all homeowners in Nepean, ON. Give us a call at 613-738-1774 to learn more.
