Hubbard Exteriors, a family-owned professional exterior renovation company in Alberta last week alerted homeowners in the Calgary metro area to the four telltale signs that their property may be in need of re-roofing. While re-roofing is a morose subject for many as it can be a costly affair, a spokesperson from Hubbard Exteriors said that: “A homeowner’s best weapon of choice in preventing total rood replacement is doing checks regularly on the roof’s surface and always being alert to how the roof is performing. This means being able to pinpoint small problems at the earliest possible time as this can spell the difference between a roof repair and roof replacement in future.”
As winter is fast approaching and months of lie snowfall ahead, Hubbard Exteriors have said that climbing up on the roof is not always necessary in order to spot potential damage. Their spokesperson added that: “Many homeowners only pay attention to their roofing starts to leak, however they should be aware that the absence of leaks on the roof does not equate to excellent roof condition, it can still have problems even if it is not leaking.” In order to increase awareness before the onset of winter, Hubbard Exteriors have announced the four danger signs of a damaged roof:
- If there is water in the attic after a heavy downpour of rain, this is a strong sign there is something wrong with the roofing. This also applies if there is an ice builup.
- Shingles that have cracks and curls are also a major danger sign. This also applies to shingles that are loose or missing.
- If homeowners notice any decay on their shingles, this means their roof is already in poor condition. Additionally mold or mildew growth means the same thing.
- If the interior walls or ceilings of a property show stains, this means the roofing is in trouble.
The spokesperson from Hubbard Exteriors commented that: “One should realize that replacing a roof is not your average DIY task. Homeowners may have done a DIY roof repair at one point or another but roof replacement is entirely a different matter. It will be a difficult job for them to do on their own especially if they don’t have any knowledge or proper training on re-roofing. This is also a dangerous task. The best option is to go to a reliable roofing company to have the replacement taken care of.”
