It’s hard to know when it’s a good time to repair or replace your home’s roofing. Small damages may not seem like a big deal. However, with the change in weather in the winter season, there’s a greater chance that small problems can grow and affect other components of your home. Roofking in Langley is there to help. Here are some reasons you should get your roof repaired or replaced before winter comes:
Roof leaks can cause significant damage to your home and expensive damage at that. If a roof’s leak worsens, it can cause mould and rot, which will cost a fortune to repair down the road. The more water that comes in, the more extensive the water damage to things like your framing, insulation, drywall, ceiling, and other parts of the home.
If mould starts to grow, you have another expensive issue to deal with. Inhaling mould can be bad for your health, putting you and your family at risk. Mould will have to be removed by a mould remediation company, adding to the cost of damage.
Particularly in winter, there’s the threat of leaks and damage worsening as we are hit with winter storms and endless rain. It’s best to repair leaks as soon as you notice them; that way when winter comes, you’ll know you’re prepared for any weather that may come.
Winter roofing takes more time
When part of a roof is fixed or the entire roof is installed using an adhesive, it needs sufficient time to dry. Ideally, in warmer summer or fall seasons, roofing adhesives can dry much faster from the warmer temperatures. While it’s not impossible to install a new roof in winter, it can take much longer from the colder climate and that can bring up labour costs. Plus, your roofing team might have to take pauses to wait out bad weather days. Get roofing fixes done now so they can be done efficiently and quickly. Then your home will be well protected when those winter storms roll in.
Saving money on bills
Old roofs are made out of outdated materials that do not have the same thermal performance compared to new roofing materials. If your roof is old and worn out, and you’ve noticed a rise in energy costs, it might indicate it’s time for a replacement. A new roof can boost energy efficiency, so you can regulate the temperature in your home. This will help your home feel warm and comfortable in the winter, and can reduce cooling costs in the summer as well.
