Residential Roof Repairs for Calgary Homeowners

Homeownership comes with a lot of perks. Your home is an investment that offers stability and equity but also comes with many responsibilities. Proper maintenance of your home and your roof can extend the life of your roof and prevent replacing your roof before its time. Calgary homeowners have the added factor of extreme weather conditions in the winter months, but some simple residential roof repairs tips can help before calling in the professionals.

The Importance of Regular Residential Roof Repairs

Roof repairs are essential for the overall condition of your home. Your roof is the first defence against Calgary weather, which can change on a dime and be intense. To keep your home safe, warm and comfortable throughout our minus 40-degree winters or spring hail storms, your roof has to be in good condition.

Fixing minor issues as they happen can prevent further damage and a more expensive repair. You may shrug off damaged or missing shingles, but it could lead to something more serious and expensive.

The condition of your roof can impact the value of your property. If you eventually want to sell your home, your roof can be a deciding factor for many potential buyers. Keeping it in good condition will be a positive in the eyes of buyers.

Tips for Roofing Maintenance in Calgary

Some simple additions to your to-do list will help you catch roofing repairs early and save you money in the long run.

  • Clean your gutters: blocked gutters can redirect water, causing moisture to build up on your roof and damaging it over time. During the snow melt and rainy months, ensuring your gutters are cleared of debris is particularly important.
  • Perform a Routine Inspection: A task that you should implement for your entire home, inspecting the exterior of your house should be done every six months or so. You can see if there’s any damage, cracks, or curling shingles.
  • Moss: Inspect your roof for moss or algae, as they can impact the integrity of your shingles and can lead to leaks.
  • Check your Ventilation: When your attic is well-ventilated, it reduces the chance of moisture and heat build-up, which can cause damage to the inside of your sheathing and rafters, impacting your roof.
