Everyone gets ready for winter in different ways, from winter-proofing their vehicles to making sure their warm clothes will do the trick this year. Though freezing temperatures are usually not a concern in the region, getting your roof ready for winter in Vancouver, BC is crucial. Unfortunately the ice and snow that we do get can affect your home. To make sure you are really ready for winter, you need to make sure your roof in particular is up to the task. Here’s why:
LEAKS IN YOUR ROOF CAN LEAD TO NOTICIBLE DAMAGE
Harsh weather, including rain and wind storms as well as snow and ice, can cause damage in your home if your roof is in need of repairs or replacement. If you let the problem go on for long enough that leaks occur, you could end up with stains on your ceiling as well as ruined carpets, floors, and furniture.
LEAKS IN YOUR ROOF CAN LEAD TO DAMAGE YOU AREN’T EVEN AWARE OF
What happens if you have a leak in your roof that’s causing damage you can’t see? This is what can happen if your roof leaks into your attic or down your walls. If you don’t get your roof inspected before the harsher weather comes, you could end up allowing mold, rot and other damage to grow. Who knows when you’ll discover these concerns?
A roof inspection will help you determine whether you need repairs or even a roof replacement. The best time to get this inspection completed is well before winter weather arrives. Then, if the Vancouver roofers needs to come back to address concerns, they can do so before ice or snow arrives.
