Like any other valuable asset in life, a roof also requires a certain maintenance and up-keep in order to perform with effectiveness and longevity. The role of your roof is to cover and protect you home, in turn it protects your loved ones and yourself. The fact is, what protects you, also itself requires means of protection in order to continue serving its purpose. The roof not only covers everything above your home, but is also part of the outer layer of your home. This makes it susceptible to damage from all the threats which lie outside. From wear and tear, to whether damage and critter invasions, your roof puts up a fair fight each day to maintain its functionality and efficiency. Every year, home owners in Ontario deal with a large host of damage inflictions to their roofs. We live in heavily nature-saturated areas as well as the fact that we endure hard, long winters and humid, hot summers. Let’s look at the factors which effect homeowners in Ontario throughout the seasons; Spring: mother nature is birthing all of her creatures and wild life is thriving everywhere. During Spring, every animal in the kingdom seeks a home in which to nest and produce offspring. Every squirrel, racoon, bird and insect is searching restlessly for a home to host their babies. Any hole, opening, crevasse or nook will do, and your roof/attic couldn’t be a better piece of real estate for these eager property occupants! Spring time is also a period in which most of the year’s rainfall takes place. Precipitation is another major cause for roof perils and often gets the better of old, or already compromised roofs very easily. Another problem we often see in Spring, is the collaboration between critters and whether. Even if your roof is brand new and sparkling, once a racoon or squirrel is able to create so much as a small opening, the wind-driven rainfall which may follow, will instantly bleed its way into the attic and home, causing not only leaks, but also mold, rot and other damage by the time you can even address the first issues.
Integrity Roofers always there for you to rely on when it comes to being prepared. By using our Roof Maintenance Program, you can have the advantages of prevention and save your money. Our Maintenance Program, along with its repair services and assessment reports gives you the homeowner, all the advantages of not having to pay a high price for untimely roof defects and leaks.
Once a leak begins to cause rot and mold to set it, a homeowner has their work cut out for them, and their wallets too! All this can be avoided too easily, by just taking the steps to ensure proper roof maintenance before the problem occurs.
Summer: Summers in Ontario are hot and very humid. Sometimes you may even notice the asphalt covering your streets have gone soft! Extreme heat and humidity can cause both further nesting and shelter seeking by animals and condensation build-up within the attic. Condensation is the number one culprit of mold and rot in the attic. If not properly ventilated, condensation can easily build up inside the attic without any notice and begin the process of rotting your roof and creating the need for a full roof replacement!
In the Fall, well, everything falls! This means that your roof is no longer just fighting critters and rain, but is also carrying the weight of load after load of leaves and twigs falling from trees and filling up the gutters and eaves troughs.
The Fall season is a great time to have your roof serviced and assessed thoroughly, in preparation for the Winter season. With just one visit, your Integrity Roofers technician can repair, prepare, assess and diagnose the roof and keep it in great condition to bare through the Winter.
Once Winter hits, roofing perils can pile up higher than the snow! Ice dams and rooftop snow cause leaks and extreme damage to attics. These repairs often come at a high price to pay for those who didn’t prepare beforehand. The Roof Maintenance Program is design exactly to prevent these costs on major repairs.

- Full Roof Inspection (ensuring your roof is in accordance with manufacturing standards)
