As well as protect you from the elements, your roof helps regulate the temperature of your home. With the arrival of fall and colder temperatures also comes an increase in windy days, which could cause important damage to your home. Fall is the perfect moment to check the state of your roof, before the arrival of snow and the famous Canadian winter. Here are some tips concerning the maintenance of your roof, as well as what to do with a damaged roof.
Roof inspection after strong winds
The day after a storm or after a particular windy day, it’s recommend to visually inspect your roof to pinpoint any potential problem as fast as possible.
If your roof has many levels to it, you’ll need to use a ladder to properly see all of it. In this case, we strongly recommend you getting help from our experts so that everything can be done in a safe fashion. We offer an inspection service, to avoid you any eventual injuries from trying to do it yourself. The inspection of your roof should be done yearly, just before winter.
Know that even if a single shingle flew off during strong winds, it’s enough to allow water infiltrations. This is why it’s important to not wait and to have your shingles replaced as soon as possible. Moreover, future winds will lift up the surrounding shingles easier.
What to do after your roof is damaged
You looked at your roof and noticed that some shingles are missing? Don’t panic! Follow these steps to know what to do before having your roof repaired:

- Once you’ll have a good idea of the outside damages, check the damages from the inside of your home. Is there signs of water infiltration from your attic? Can you see daylight through your roof? A heavily-damaged roof will present those signs.
