DID YOU KNOW?

 

Did you know...
that not every underlayment for your roof is created equal?

Homeowners like to do their own research so we want them to find areas that can answer some lingering questions.

 
Did you know...
the wind rating on a shingle can vary between 60km/hr and 210??

 

Did you know...
that a roof can have silent leaks for years before evidence presents itself? Most homeowners don’t notice these leaks until there are visible signs like water spots, peeling paint or disintegrating wallpaper. Once these signs present themselves, however, there is often significant damage that has already taken place. Mold, dry rot, damage to insulation, buckling walls, etc.

 

Did you know...
Poor installation is one of the most common causes of roof damage. Depending on which source you read, a roof should last anywhere from 20 to 45 years. Poorly installed roofs may last significantly fewer years before they start to present problems to homeowners. Wrinkling, buckling, contraction of sheets, water damage and more can all be attributed to poor roof installation.

 

Did you know...
Ice damming is most often caused by insufficient ventilation and insulation in the attic.
 
Did you know...
Shingles are constantly evolving. Now all shingles are made with fibreglass and organic are now discontinued. Organic 25 year shingles used to last between 8-15 years depending on how good the install was. Fiberglass lasts between 15-50 depending which quality is installed.
 

 

How do I know if I need to re-roof?

Potential Signs that point to your roof needing to be re-done:

-Cracked shingles
- Curling shingles
- Blistering shingles
- Improperly installed roofing systems (more common than you think)
- Mould issues / moisture build up- leaks
 
Things that call for a repair:
- Missing shingles
- Leak anywhere in roof
- Black mould in corners of skylights / vents
- Paint falling off of ceilings
- Sags in your roof line
