Spring is finally on the way! This can be a messy time of year in Calgary, AB. All of the snow and ice that has accumulated over the long, Alberta winter is finally melting. You may be thinking of inspecting your lawnmower and sprinkler to see if they still work. It’s easy to forget a major part of your home that should be inspected – your roof!
Why Should You Have Your Roof Inspected in the Spring?
The dramatic temperature fluctuations in Calgary, AB can cause strain on your home because many parts of your home expand and contract when the temperature rises and falls. This can cause strain on materials in your roof and cause cracks. It’s important to catch these as soon as they form so that they don’t get worse and lead to leaks in your roof. Advanced Level Roofing in Calgary, AB has experienced roofing contractors who are trained to spot any signs of cracks forming in your roof. Spring is an excellent time to inspect a roof as it’s far easier for our roofing contractors to spot any damage that might have occurred over the winter.
What Roofing Problems are Common in the Spring?
Roofing problems can happen at any time of year. However, many homeowners notice leaks in the spring when the ice and snow begin to melt. Issues such as attic rain and ice dams occur over the winter and become more noticeable when the temperatures rise. Keep the gutter on your roof clear so that debris won’t build up and retain excess moisture.
A buildup of snow and ice on the roof can compromise the structural integrity of your roof. Water is very heavy and may strain your roofing system. Call the expert roofers at Advanced Level Roofing if you think that your roof is beginning to sage.
A common sign of active leaks is staining forming on the ceilings or walls in your home. This should be addressed as soon as possible to prevent more damage from occurring and mould from growing in your home.
Check Your Chimney
Another common area for damage to occur is your chimney. The freeze-thaw cycle that happens frequently in Calgary can put a lot of strain on flashing, and brick and mortar. The chimney in your home can be vulnerable to the effects of the freeze-thaw cycle and this may lead to a leak.
