Spring is fast approaching, and if you need it, you definitely want to get a roof repair in Calgary AB because it’s the perfect time to do it. Many contractors in the area will start accepting jobs for roof repairs once the snow clears, and the sun and warmth grow within the area.
If you’re not sure whether you need immediate roof repairs, check and see the following signs to help you learn more about your roof’s condition. In doing so, you can be sure that you’d want to work with a contractor quickly to fix the following problems.
More Than 20 Years Old
The typical lifespan of an asphalt shingles roof is about 20-35 years. If you’re using clay or slate tiles, you can expect it to show signs of deterioration beyond 50 years even with efficient roofing maintenance services. Therefore, if your roof passes the 20-year mark, it would have most likely suffered damages resulting from normal wear and tear or weathering.
Having professional Calgary AB roofers ensure that you can prolong the roof’s lifespan and performance without having a full-on roof tear off and replacement. This is especially important to do during the spring because the summer rains are fast approaching.
You Have Standing Water In Your Gutters
Your gutters are the smallest yet one of the most important parts of your roof. If you’ve left standing water in your gutter system for too long, chances are they’ve dragged and pulled the entire roofing system. Sagging can cause your roofing materials to stretch, which makes it important to have specialist roofers address it as soon as possible.
In addition, long-standing water in your gutters will have damaged the entire system, which will warrant a replacement.
Thermostat Bills are Rising
If you notice your thermostat bills are rising; insulation leaks may be the problem. If that’s the case, this is a clear sign that the outside temperature has begun to massively infiltrate the internal temperature of your property. While the cause could be wall cracks and basement damage, it’s damaged roofing underlayment that is the primary cause for most cases.
Having a roof repair team survey and perform all the necessary repairs on your roof is essential when this happens. It also prevents the possibility of attic leaks due to the increasing cracks and crevices on your roof underlayment.
You See Signs of Water Damage On Your Walls
Staining and bloated-looking wood moldings on your internal ceiling may be a sign that your roof is suffering from water damage. When your roof underlayment is compromised, the leaks from the rain start permeating through the attic and down to your ceilings and walls. Wood molds are often left to absorb and later dry up with the rainwater. Prolonged inaction against these leaks can result in bigger water damage in the future.
A Hailstorm Has Previously Passed
All roof materials have adequate resistance against hailstorms. However, some storms can be more severe than others especially if you’re hearing high-velocity hailstones impacting against your asphalt roof shingles or clay tiles.
If a recent hailstorm has passed, it’s best to immediately contact a professional roofing team in Calgary to learn about the roof’s condition and your best course of action immediately.
