Roofing, your Home's First Defense

Posted 29 May 2014 2:52 pm . Filed under : Uncategorized By : admin

A home without a roof is not a house; it’s just an open box. In any part of the world, weather, dust, all sorts of débris and wind can cause major disruptions to home life and to valuable property.

In Canada, this problem is often exacerbated by really severe weather many more temperate regions never have to face. Calgary roofers are kept busy year around repairing and re-roofing homes in conjunction with new construction roofing.

Weather can take a severe toll on even the best roofs, and it is extremely important for every homeowner to be certain from season to season that the roof that covers and protects the home remains secure and strong.

Roofing comes in every imaginable material and in a great many different patterns and styles and every person has a particular idea of just what would be appropriate for a given home. Roofers know and understand that and will consult with and work with each homeowner to decide on exactly which style and material would be most suitable for a given situation.

Slate roofs are among the most beautiful as well as expensive. While they are not only beautiful, they have a classic appearance that many older, statelier homes cry out for. Today, there are imitation slate roofs that come very close to matching the real thing in appearance. While not perfect replacements for slate, these plastic polymer composites are extremely durable, made of individual tiles just like real slate and bear the hand-hewn appearance of real slate roofing tiles. Unless the owner insists on genuine slate, these can offer a long-lasting and beautiful addition to any home, immediately giving it an upscale appearance. They can come in a variety of different colors as well for those who enjoy something different.

Some tiles are clay, just as the typical Mediterranean tiles so often seen in Southern Europe and Mexico. Another is a combination of fiberglass and cement. These are only a few of the choices a homeowner may choose, depending on taste, the actual building and of course, the homeowner’s pocketbook.

Steel roofs are now available and can be among the more durable roofs, but many feel they present a look that is too industrial.

Wooden shake roofing is probably more ancient than slate, being cheaper as well as easier to create as many homeowners did in the old day, chopping down trees and splitting them into shingles to protect their homes. At the lower end of the scale, asphalt roofing remains always popular, mostly because compared to other roofing, it is less a drain on the checkbook, is long-lasting and offers good protection from the elements.

At least once a year every homeowner should have the roof inspected by a licensed and experienced Calgary roofing company, and when necessary, arrange for a solution to the problem, be it only a few shingles, a more extensive repair or a completely new roof. No homeowner can afford to let the roof fail in any way. Even a small leak begins not only to discolor the ceilings but cause serious unseen damage to the vital structure of the home.

In most cases, an inspection can be had at no cost or obligation. For buyers or sellers, they can usually have a certification of roof condition that may be very helpful in purchase and sale of a home.

Right now, before the real weather gets here, you should have your roof inspected by a pro. You’re not going to regret that.
