How much do you know about the construction of your home’s roof? If you’re like most Winnipeg residents, the answer is “not much”. You probably know that the shingles are the outermost layer of protection but what’s underneath them? What secures your roof to the walls of your home? What are the most likely entry points for water into your roof’s structure and the rest of your home? Whether you’re searching for leaks, considering a new roof or just going through the annual inspection process, it’s important that you have a professional opinion.
Your Roof is an Investment. If you think that you can go it alone in determining the condition of your roof, it’s time to rethink things. You wouldn’t get into the stock market without sound financial advice. Your roof is just as big an investment, and you need professional guidance here. While you’ll be the one who ultimately makes any decisions regarding your roof, you need the help that’s only available from a trained, educated, experienced Winnipeg roofer to ensure those decisions are the right ones.
Minor Damage Repair. If you’ve noticed a few missing shingles on your roof, you might be tempted to just put them back on yourself. Shingles can be purchased from DIY home stores, certainly. Nailing them down isn’t outside the realm of possibility either. However, what if there are deeper problems lurking? Missing shingles are a sign of an aging roof that needs repairs, and can also indicate the potential for roofing leaks in your home. Do you know how to spot them? Do you know how to tell if your home’s actually in need of a reroofing job? Hiring a professional to take care of minor repairs ensures that they’re done right the first time, and that any other problems can be spotted and fixed at the same time.
Professionals Offer Free Inspections. If you’ve spotted signs of a water leak, it’s tempting to fix the problem yourself. However, are you actually fixing the leak? It’s very hard to pinpoint a water leak in a roof, largely because when water enters the roof, it runs down the inside of the roof decking before finally leaking out onto the insulation or into the ceiling. A professional will be able to locate the leak precisely, and ensure that it’s repaired right the first time (which saves you time, money and stress in the long run).
The point where most homeowners get stuck is determining which professional roofer to choose. Not all roofing contractors in Winnipeg are created equal. You need to ensure that the company you choose is reputable, and has been in business for a long time (length of history proves quality and customer satisfaction in many instances). Finally, make sure that the contractor is licensed and insured before you make any decision.
