In a city like Vancouver, you’ve simply got to face the fact that rain happens. It’s a part of life, and a big part at that. In 2017, there were 154 days of rain and in 2016 the number of rainy days was a whopping 186. That’s pretty much half the year! As roofers, the rain is something we’ve had to learn to deal with. Of course, roofing in the rain is certainly not ideal, but roofers can’t take half the year off. (Although, wouldn’t that be nice?) For those of you thinking ahead to schedule roofing services or others that need emergency repairs, you might be wondering: What happens if it rains during roof repairs?
Leaky Roof Tips From Your Vancouver Roofing Contractor
In Vancouver, it seems like we have two seasons, wet and dry. While the summers in the city are glorious, they are all too quickly replaced by a long, rainy winter. The rain, of course, makes the city lush and beautiful, but it also comes with its challenges, especially for home owners.
Concerns With Attic Mold
Your attic is one of the most important rooms in your entire home. The integrity of your roof as well as the efficiency of your ventilation system depend a lot on how well air is able to move through your attic. Sometimes, if there is inadequate ventilation in your attic, this can lead to dampness which is the primary cause of mold buildups. Homeowners in living in places like Vancouver, Burnaby, Maple Ridge and throughout the lower mainland should be particularly aware of the possible buildup of mold in their attics due to the wet climate of the region. If you happen to discover a significant buildup of mold in your attic, it is important to deal with it promptly before it leads to other costly issues in the future.
