Vancouver Roofing Company Explains Necessity of Prompt Roof Repairs

Kitsilano Roofing Publishes Blog to Stop Small Leaks From Turning Into Big Problems

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - December 16, 2015) - Kitsilano Roofing, a roofing contractor in Vancouver, wants everyone to know how important it is to fix a leaking roof. This year, Vancouver is battling what is being touted as a monster El Nino, which means extra rain and flooding. To prevent unnecessary property damage, it is important to fix any roof leak as soon as it occurs. For more information, go to

"The wet weather patterns have definitely taken a toll on people's roofs this year, and we want clients to understand why it's important to fix these leaks immediately," says a company representative. "Even a small leak can lead to major problems like mould, rotted framing and sheathing, destroyed insulation and damaged ceilings."

If you have an attic, it's a good idea to periodically check for tell-tale signs, such as water stains, black marks, or mould. Although it's uncommon for problems to develop in open areas where the shingles are sitting properly, there are still opportunities for water to come through. Problem areas of the roof typically include plumbing and roof vents, chimneys, dormers and other projections.

Common problems like leaks caused by faulty vent booths, roof vents, and walls and dormers are typically an easy fix. Sometimes it's just a matter of securing a few nails or replacing an aging feature.

"Even if you're planning on replacing your roof soon, it's important not to neglect a leak, because it can damage other parts of the home, leading to much larger bills and problems. At Kitsilano Roofing, we provide free estimates and 24-hour emergency repair to make sure minor leaks don't turn into big, expensive problems."
