Christmas time is all about relaxing with your family in a warm house, drinking eggnog, building a fire and opening presents. Typically, it's also about skiing, sledding and building a quinzee. Hopefully, if you performed autumn roof maintenance, your roof will be up to the task of keeping the snow and ice on the outside of your house. If on the other hand, you were so caught up in back-to-school season that your roof went uninspected, the wear and tear of winter storms could erode your roof and make for a chilly winter – if you find yourself in this situation, call Professional Roofers immediately.
The last thing you want when you're trying to impress the in-laws is a nasty draft blowing through the house. If you don't have great insulation and you haven't had your roof serviced in awhile, this could be a real problem. Since guest bedrooms are often located in gabled dormers – which typically jut out on the front of a house – the draft could be especially bad in that room. If your in-laws end up with pneumonia, that's seriously bad news.
Even if you've never even thought about your roof and landed on this page because you're experiencing a last minute emergency, fret not, you're in the right place! Our company is a longstanding independent business that provides quality service at a fair price point – check out these testimonials from past clients if you're still not sure! The truth is, even if your roof is being ravaged by winter storms, unless it's more than twenty years old, there's a good chance it just needs a bit of tender love and care. So if you've got snow in your attic and wind blowing through your bedroom, don't freak out, just pick up the phone and give us a call.
Once you've had your roof properly inspected and patched, the best possible thing you can do is install insulation. Not only does this help keep out the cold, it also helps keep out the heat and – most importantly – the moisture in the summertime. Between keeping a fire going in the living room and installing proper insulation, you can save plenty of cash on your heating and cooling bills in the more extreme months.
If you’re building a new house or it’s come to the point where you need to replace your old roof, give us a call today and consult with our roofing contractors in Toronto on what materials to use. Asphalt shingles were invented over a hundred years ago, and while they are still the most popular material for constructing a roof, they are not necessarily the best. At Pro Roofers, we specialize in flat roofs, which facilitate more space in your home and are crafted from weatherproof membranes that last a long, long time and are easy to maintain. Roll roofing is also a strategy – one that we've covered in depth on the blog – that can give your flat roof an extra layer of strength and protection. Additionally, metal roofs are great for deterring precipitation and are also excellent for durability.
Whatever your concerns this Christmas season, whether it's overdue maintenance or a last minute emergency, we've got your back. Call Professional Roofers today to find out more.
