As your home ages, so does your roof and an older roof isn’t as good at protecting your home as it used to be. You can start to see your shingles crack from the sun or they may even be missing because of storms. You may not be ready to completely replace the roof, or it may not be in your budget this year. You can, in many cases, repair the roof rather than replacing the whole thing.
Our team will come and do an assessment of the damage to your roof and determine whether it can be repaired or a replacement is needed.
Canada has some brutal weather from the hailstorms we see here in Alberta to the heavy snow we get every winter, all of which can damage your roof.
Over time shingles will start to curl andyou may even lose some of them during heavy winds. That leaves you with a leaky roof that needs immediate repair.
Curled & Broken Shingles
One of the most common signs that your roof is need of repair is when then shingles start curling or you have gaps on parts of your roof. If you have traditional asphalt shingles on the roof, they will start to curl when the top layer gets damaged from UV rays from the sun. The shingles start to get brittle and break and that allows water to seep through the roof and damage the wooden structure underneath. As soon as you start to notice changes in color or curled shingles it is time to call a roofing expert to come and have a look.
