Why Winter Is The Perfect Time For Roof Repairs in Calgary

For many homeowners, fixing a roof in need of repair is the last thing on their minds in the icy winter months. However, contrary to popular belief, winter is one of the best times of year to complete looming roof repairs. Although it may seem impossible for a roofing contractor to complete the necessary tasks amidst adverse weather conditions; there is no need for this concern as our team of workers is fully qualified for any cold weather job.

If there is a problem with your roof, it is crucial to get it fixed immediately before conditions are given an opportunity to worsen. This is especially true in wintertime when the constant freezing and thawing of roofing materials make damaged areas especially susceptible to rapidly increasing problems. These problems could prove to be even more ever costly as many damages can disperse destruction and often harm other parts of the structure in question.

A common concern for wintertime clients of roofing contractors is that the conditions surely must be too dangerous for the contractor to perform in. After all, in some areas, roofs are covered in snow and ice for several months out of the year, while temperatures often stay below zero for days at a time. Clients can be assured that even in such desolate weather conditions, our specialized team of roofers are always prepared to take on the job and have the experience and expertise to handle cold-weather situations with ease.

While the wintertime is generally a fine choice for roof repairs, clients should note that there are some limitations to the type of roof repairs that can be completed in extremely cold weather. Certain materials that are required to make particular types of repairs require direct sunlight and heat to function properly. Our team can advise you properly about any roofing condition and its availability to be serviced in the winter. Even if you think your particular problem is unfixable in current conditions, you’d be surprised at the advanced products that are used in the business.

Because roofing contractors are generally less busy in the winter months, it is possible for your roofing needs to be completed much more quickly than if you wait for warmer weather. We are usually less booked and can put your project at the top of our to-do lists. While some may initially be wary of wintertime repairs on rooftops, you can be sure that our team here at Done Right Roofing can reverse wintertime worries. We are qualified and eager to take on and alleviate wintertime woes pertaining to your roofing needs.


Avoid Spring Roofing Leaks By Performing Winter Repairs

Nothing is more destructive than water coming into your home and a roof leak is one of the most common problems a homeowner may face. Asphalt shingle roofs, though highly effective, can develop leaks over time. Causes of roof leaks range from weather damage, to improper installations and common wear and tear. If facing these problems, it is imperative you find a quality contractor in order to mitigate your losses. Below are some proactive steps you can take before you encounter a major roof leak.

A roof’s biggest enemy is weather. Considering we live in Calgary, and our temperatures being what they are, snow and ice are typically the reason behind most roof repairs. Finding a good quality roofing contractor is the key when handling such repairs. Some do-it-yourselfers may want to attempt a roof repair themselves. The truth is that, if you are not an expert in roof repair, you may wind up damaging your roof even more. Also, finding a low quality roofing contractor to fix the problem can be equally as bad. These low quality contractors may fix your roofing problem in the short term, but either their materials or craftsmanship will fail, leaving you back where you started. Our mission at Done Right Roofing is to do the job right the first time so that you will not incur further costs, hassles, or hardships.

What you can do to lessen damage costs is inspect your roof every couple of months to check for damage. Check for missing shingles on the roof, in the gutters, and on the ground. Often a shingle may be missing from a part of your roof which you cannot see. These shingles often times find themselves lodged in a gutter or on the lawn. Inspect flashing around areas such as the base of your chimney, roof valleys, ventilation caps, and skylights. Check for mold and other discolourations. After large storms, check to see if any damage has occurred from fallen tree limbs or other debris. If you would like a contractor to conduct your inspection, we offer a 20-point inspection designed to find all your potential roofing problems.

Taking proper steps and promptly hiring a quality roofing contractor to repair your roof may save you thousands. Let Done Right Roofing help you save money, time, and effort. With our A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, you can be sure we will do the job right the first time.

Update Your Roof With The Help Of A Licensed Roofing Contractor

If you are considering getting a new roof in Calgary, we want to help. Here at Done Right Roofing, we pride ourselves in knowing what it takes to install a roof in our area. We also know how to do expert roof repair in all kinds of weather conditions. Getting the advice of a licensed roofing contractor is the first step you should take when you decide it’s time to upgrade your roof. We have a track record of providing great customer service, in diagnosing what our customers need, picking the best looking materials and installing a great roof. Also, our new roofs and repairs are guaranteed.

There are special considerations when picking roofing materials in our climate. Not all the types of roof can handle the weather we endure in Alberta without using highly technical procedures. In fact, in some situations, manufacturers won’t guarantee their product unless a licensed contractor has addressed these concerns. Ice damming and high winds can cause many materials to fail if they are not installed by an experienced roofing professional. We help our customers avoid the pitfalls of picking the wrong materials, or using the wrong installation methods. We offer more than just expert installation and repair; we offer our customers peace of mind.

Another big concern is the parts of your roof that you don’t see. Over the years, the roof decking, underlayment and flashing can take a beating. This can lead to thousands of dollars in damage. These conditions aren’t immediately visible to most homeowners. Often, it takes a professional roofing contractor to be able to tell how much damage has been done underneath the actual roof. Updating your roof includes replacing those parts that go unseen. When we give you a price, it will include all the necessary repairs. Sometimes, we find that a house doesn’t have enough venting. In most cases, we can improve the ventilation of your home which can add years to the life of your roof.

Even if you are in the early stages of planning your roof upgrade, give us a call. For those that are ready to go, we are offering late winter and early spring specials that will allow you get an even better price on an expert roof. Whether you are looking for a complete upgrade, or just in need of immediate roof repair, we here at Done Right Roofing want to earn your business the same way we have with all our customers. Expert consultation, great customer service and a no nonsense guarantee.

Importance of Staying On Top Of Roof Maintenance In The Winter

You more than likely dedicate a large amount of your time focusing on various things during the winter season in terms of being properly prepared, but while it may not seem like it on the surface; you need to ensure that you maintain your roof. During the winter season, because of the extremes of the cold combined with the snow, sleet, hail and icy rain, your roof is put in a very vulnerable position. This is an overview of why you should consider consulting a competent roofing contractor, especially during the winter.

The reason why you need to pay extra attention to your roof during the winter besides the hazards and damage caused by the winter itself is the fact that if it has an underlying problem, the cold while not the original source, will only make it worse and eventually cost you more money for roof repair services. Some of the more obvious things people commonly look out for are clogged gutters due to leaves, snow and ice, which will lead to a rotting of the roof if left unchecked. You should also be sure to trim trees that are hanging beside or over the house due to the fact that the snow in combination with the wind can bring the tree down on your house. While many people may assume that this is basically all the maintenance they need during the winter, there are other risk factors that everyone should consider because the last thing anyone would want is to pay more money for a roof repair bill because of a lack of knowledge.

Sometimes there are damages within the roof that may seem minor at first, but will only get worse over time and even accelerated due to the winter. That is why we recommend that you only seek competent roofing contractors that can perform quality roof inspections during the winter, so that you are fully prepared. Here at Done Right Roofing, we provide just that. We provide quality roofing services at an affordable rate. The last thing you need is to end up spending thousands of dollars to redo a poorly done job or pay for an inspection that failed to thoroughly inspect all aspects of the roofs.

Not only do we provide professional repair and routine maintenance services, we also provide installation services of high-quality roofs with materials such as our most highly requested asphalt roofing shingles. Having inadequate or aged shingles can lead to damage of the roof as the water seeps into the building through the exposed area, causing mold and mildew to accumulate, along with damage to the paint and overall structure of the building. By seeking the help of our highly experienced team, you lessen your chances of having a very unpleasant winter with a hefty bill.
