(NC) A sound roof protects your home and family, but after a particularly rough winter it is vulnerable to wear and tear. Jack Rende, senior merchant for building materials at the Home Depot Canada shares three steps to a roof that stops leaks and increases curb appeal.
Sun, snow, ice, branches and wind can all age or damage roofing materials. Common signs you may need to replace your roof include missing, blistering and curling shingles; deteriorating chimney flashing; and shingle granules in the gutters. Other signs include water stains, leaks, mould, mildew and daylight peeking through roof boards in the attic.
At the initial consultation, an installations services consultant assesses and measures the roof, presents samples, discusses a budget and outlines the timeline. To best prepare for this appointment, catalogue any damage; note any personal style, brand and colour preferences; and determine your budget. Factors to consider when choosing a roof are style, colour, durability, warranties and installation. For an on-trend look with great quality, consider Timberline High-Definition shingles from GAF with high definition colour blends and Advanced Protection technology.
REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT.
Arrange a pre-installation inspection as well as an installation date for your new roof. Removal of existing roofing materials includes the delivery of disposal bins to ensure a thorough cleanup is accomplished. Once the project is complete, the installer reviews the project and performs a final inspection.
