Repair roof leaks when they are small by inspecting your roof on a regular basis before you end up with big gaping holes in your roof. If you suspect you may have a problem, call a roofing company and schedule a roof inspection with a professional roofer who is experienced at detecting small leaks.
The Purpose of a Roof is to Protect your Home.
Let’s face it, living in the Vancouver area is costly and the last thing you want to do is spend money, however, a roof inspection will save cash and avert a major health risk. Water is your home’s number one enemy as it can make it’s way into small spaces causing moisture build up, rot and black mold. Winter in Vancouver is wet as it doesn’t stop raining for days and the sky bombards your roof with gallons of cold water. If that water finds a way under the roofing material you could be in for an expensive surprise.
Attic and Roof Inspection by a Roofer
Ideally before the rains of winter begin to fall call a reputable roofing company to request a roof inspection. Insist on an experienced roofer to inspect both your roof and your attic. The roof could look great from the outside, but once inside, he may detect moisture leaks from the underside. If your attic is not well ventilated or insulated properly this could cause expensive roof repairs in the future.

You Have a Roof Leak
It’s another rainy day in the Vancouver area. You bundle up under a blanket with a good book and a hot cup of tea. That’s when you hear it. Drip. Drip. Drip. What the? Frustrated because a tap must not have been turned off properly, you get up and follow the sound to the source and right there, in the middle of the family room, water is dripping from the ceiling. A big wet spot is spreading above and another on the floor. You grab the biggest mixing bowl you have, place it on the floor and then Google Vancouver Roofers looking for a roofing company who can come and fix a roof leak right away. So much for a nice evening reading. So much for that extra money in your bank account.
Book a roof inspection to identify and repair leaks when they are small. There are lots of reasons why your roof could be leaking and it takes an experienced roofer to find the source and repair it properly.
