If you experienced a leaky winter because of all the snow and ice build up on your Ottawa home or office, maybe it is that time to reconsider a new roof.

A new roof has more advantages in the long-term when compared to repairing it once or twice a year. Repairs may or may not cost few hundred dollars but again depending on the situation it may be a lot more than you’ve expected.
Most important advantage of a new roof is that you will be worry free for a very long time if it was done right. You may have to come up with the money at once or in few months depending on the company. Always walk away from ZERO INTEREST or financing options if you ask me because you will pay thousands of dollars more if you do your math. If you have no other options and you feel trapped than financing will be suitable for your budget depending on your credit score. I’ll give you a simple example: Second hand auto sales specialize in bad credit customers because they can charge up to 25% interest in 6 years. If you had good credit you can purchase the same car from the manufacturer as low as 0.9% interest. It is a number game at the end of the day. Pay 5k for your roof today or pay 7500$ in 3 years choice is always yours.

Depending on the weather your roof will age a lot faster when compared to milder weather when no rain or snow is in the forecast. Heavy rain is the worst when it comes to wear and tear. Annual roof inspection is a must if your roof is older than 8 years. Eavestroughs needs to be cleaned at least once a year prior to winter. It can be DIY project for the homeowners but again, if its difficult to access, hiring a professional roofing company is a must. All these maintenance costs will add up at the end of the year.

If you spend up to 500$ per year on roof repairs than it is time for a new roof.

You may think that the seals are bad between the double panes in your window but the real question is what is the cause for it? During cold winter months your furnace is working overtime to keep your house in a reasonable temperatures live in. Insulation behind the drywall and in your attic supposed to keep you warm from cold winter months. When there is no fresh air flow in your attic due to improper ventilation system, it forces all the warm air to get trapped and cause condensation .

Many may think skylight is in bad shape and needs to be replaced but it may only leak because of the ice dams that are allowing water to enter around the skylight and cause a leak.

It’s like taking a shower with hot water and getting all the mirrors moist. As soon as you turn on the fan all the moist air fans out and circulates the air.

So on your roof there are vents designed to fan out the trapped moist air. If these vents are blocked because of the snow or they are not big enough to fan out the moist air, it will cause condensation. If you are experiencing similar effects and want some answers, contact your local roofing contractor for advise. If roof vents are not visible and covered with snow, hire an experienced roofer in your area to remove all the snow off your roof.

Be sure to ask for proof of insurance.
