Summer Roof Repair Services

Aaaah. It finally feels like summer is here. After a long, rainy winter in Vancouver, you can almost hear the collective sigh of relief, and feel the general uptick in spirits as the sun comes out.

Spring Cleaning Tips From a Roofing Contractor

March 2017 is officially on the record for being the “gloomiest” month Vancouver has seen in a very long time, with only a fraction of the usual amount of sunlight.

Whether the rain in Vancouver ever stops or not, spring is technically and officially here. And with the change of seasons comes a new list of home chores. Spring is the time to dust off the garden tools and replace shovels with shears.

One major home chore that needs to be done every spring is cleaning a building’s roof. While major repairs should be done by a roofing contractor, a homeowner needs to take the time to ensure their roof hasn’t undergone winter damage and to set it afresh for the coming summer.

In a place like rainy Vancouver, everyone knows the importance of having a gutter. Without a gutter on a rainy day, you might as well be walking under a waterfall.

One of the most dreaded home maintenance chores, however, is cleaning the gutters. Just saying it sounds terrible and sends shudders down the spine. Climbing up a ladder and cleaning muddy gunk of leaves and debris out of a metal tunnel is no one’s idea of fun.

How Do I Know It’s Time For A ReRoof?

While everyone knows that with owning a home comes maintenance and repairs, sometimes they crop up at unexpected times, leaving you with little time to prepare. Of course, it would be nice if life stuck to a schedule, but stuff happens — storms blow in, hidden or unknown damage rears its head, maybe something falls from the sky and lands directly on your roof. In those cases, you just have to roll with the punches, as they say.

There’s nothing quite like summer in Vancouver. The rain dries up, the sun shines for days on end and evenings can be spent watching the sun set over the ocean.

The break in the rain also gives people a chance to tackle some of the outdoor maintenance jobs that are tough to do during Vancouver winters, especially roof maintenance.

There are a few things a home owner can do to prolong the life of a roof, and regular summer roof maintenance will go a long way in saving time and money down the road by prolonging the life of your roof.
