The changing seasons

Once winter is behind us, many of us will have the reflex to survey our yards to see how the cold season went. We’re likely to come up with ideas for renovations or repairs. You’re imagining a new flowerbed beneath your windows, and you’re also thinking of staining the patio… That said, don’t forget to look up! What about your roof?

How often should you re-roof?

The lifespan of shingles varies, depending on their quality. A service life of 10 to 20 years can be expected. However, when shingles begin to curl, crumble or crack, it’s time to consult a professional to have the condition of your roof assessed.

A number of factors can influence the lifespan of your roof. Exposure to the sun and the elements, water drainage during showers – all these details have a direct influence on its lifespan.

Don’t wait for infiltration before taking action. It’s also easy to forget that a roof is more than just shingles! You should also keep an eye on your vent and ventilation seals, as well as your dormers, flashings and the condition of your chimney. That’s why it’s highly recommended to deal with professionals.

So, how’s your roof? If you have any questions about this topic or about your renovation projects, we’ll get back to you as soon as possible!
