As a responsible homeowner in Ottawa, you are aware that you need to check on the condition of your roof periodically in order to stay on top of necessary maintenance and repairs. But do you know exactly what to look for and where to look? The following are our top 5 signs of potential roof damage in Ottawa Ontario.
Summer can be the best time of year to undertake many roofing maintenance tasks because the weather is pleasant and your roof is more likely to be dry. A dry roof is safer to walk on and less likely to be slippery.
While many homeowners manage to keep up with their indoor home maintenance during the long winter months, most are unable to take care of any maintenance projects to the exterior of the home during that time. More favorable temperatures and dryer weather make the summer the best time for taking care of all your outdoor home maintenance projects.
Now that fall is officially here, we decided to share some of our top 10 roofing tips for fall 2015 here at Abbot Roofing:
1. Inspect your roof. It is vital that you inspect your roof at least once every year (twice is better). The fall is a perfect time for a roof inspection for two reasons: First, it is the time of year that generally requires the most roof maintenance due to falling leaves; and second, it is important to have your roof in top condition before winter, which is our harshest season.
The winter months in Canada will take their toll on roofs of all kinds. If a roof has any kind of weakness, the winter weather is sure to find that weakness and exploit it. As a homeowner, it is important to give your roof the best chance possible of making it through the winter without incident (or major disaster).
