Kitsilano Roofing Company Cautions People on Spring Dangers

Kitsilano Company Lists Five Common Roofing Problems That Occur in the Spring

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - March 23, 2016) - The roofing contractors at Kitsilano Roofing are already ramping up as the damp Vancouver weather takes its toll on housing across the Lower Mainland. To help homeowners stay prepared, Kitsilano Roofing has some advice on what to watch out for in the spring. For more information, go to:

"Spring is always a busy time for us," says a company representative. "If you suspect your roof may be damaged, there are several key indicators."

  1. Active Leaks

    If the wind shifts your shingles, you may notice stains on your ceiling or walls. If this occurs, you must contact a roofing repair company immediately. Several, like Kitsilano Roofing, will provide free estimates.
  1. Pests

    Loose flashings or siding, corroded facia boards and dormant chimneys are all opportunities for animals to escape the chilly, wet weather. Recurring noises, frequent thumps, or mysterious droppings, are all signs of an unwanted guest. If you know an animal is nesting in your home, call wildlife services and then a roofer to patch up the entry point.
  1. Loose and Broken Eaves

    The build up of leaves and other organic matter can cause your troughs to clog and overflow, damaging your house and landscaping. Make sure all troughs are thoroughly cleaned at least once a year and check for loose brackets and screws.
  1. Chimney Deterioration

    Chimneys have to be inspected, particularly in older homes. When temperatures dip below zero, it's common for melt to trickle in-between the brickwork and then freeze and expand. This can cause leaks and damage. In the worst case scenario, your chimney could fall right off.
  1. Membrane Separation

    This usually pertains to commercial roofing. Tearing or peeling of the protective membrane can lead to serious issues underneath. If you notice either of these issues, it's time to call a roofing company.

"Though maintenance and repair, you can prolong life of your roof for several years. Although it can be tempting to ignore smaller issues, these often lead to bigger problems. It's always best to perform small repairs before they turn into a full-fledged replacement job."
