With the harsh Canadian winter fast approaching, our thoughts of taking out the snow tires for the car is starting to be considered. The same mind set and approach should be taken with your roof! IKO recommends that home owners should have their roof inspected before the winter.
It is highly recommend that you contact a professional roofing contractor to inspect your roof. The benefits are that they have the appropriate equipment and tools, they have been trained to take the necessary safety precautions, and more importantly they have the skills and experience to pinpoint and fix any deficiencies your roof may have before the winter sets in!
Just to name a few services that are offered to get your roof prepared for the winter; Luso Roofing offers roof inspections, roof maintenances, roof repairs, and roof tune ups. Here are just a few roof deficiencies that a roofing contractor may look out for during the pre-winter roof inspection:
- Damaged shingles
- Missing shingles
- Popped or exposed nails
- Improperly sealed nails and flashings
- Damaged or missing roof flashings
- Gutter and downspout deficiencies
- Poorly seamed flat roofing membranes
We realize that paying someone to inspect your roof and fix any roof problems can be inconvenient; however, the money, time, and effort spent on preparing your roof from the harsh winter can prevent huge future headaches.
