The roof is one of the most important features of your home. Not only does it enhance the outside appearance of the home but more importantly it protects the inside of the home and its contents from damage from rain and snow.

Create a Safe Environment around your Home

Tree branches that rub on the roof can damage asphalt shingles and falling branches can damage all types of roofing materials. Trimming tree branches away from the house will help to protect your roof. Remove debris such as leaves, small twigs, and such off your roof and clean gutters also called eavestroughs on a regular basis to prevent damage.

Periodic Maintenance

Scheduled roof inspections can catch potential problems before they have a chance to become a costly problem. Creating a periodic maintenance schedule will not only protect your roof it will ease your mind that you are doing everything you can to protect the value of your home. As a homeowner it is your responsibility to ensure your home is in tip top condition. Scheduling a inspection appointment with iRoofing Toronto can give you the peace of mind you deserve.

What should be Inspected?

The obvious is to inspect the condition of the roofing material be it shingles, tiles, or metal, for damage. But roof inspections require more than just that. Check the underside of the roof in the attic for signs of leaks or water damage. Is there enough ventilation to prevent moisture damage such as mildew and mold? Does the home have sufficient insulation? The recommended amount of insulation has changed over time. Does your home have what was recommended fifty years ago or what is recommended today?

The experts at iRoofing Toronto will evaluate the condition of your roofing material, the amount of insulation keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and if your home has proper ventilation. After the inspection, we will advise you on steps you should take to protect your home.

When you Should make Repairs

If you see any damage to your roof, it is important to get it repaired as soon as possible to prevent further damage not only to the roof but to other areas of the home. Visually inspect your home for shingles that are damaged or worn, shingles that have curled or lifted away from the roof, missing shingles after a strong wind storm or if you notice signs of leaks inside of your home.

Ignoring roof problems today can become expensive major roof repairs in the future.
