Welcome to our Roofing Blog
Your roof is always the most exposed part of your home. Sun exposure, hail, rain and heavy winds are the leading reasons for Guelph roofing and property damage. There are some visible signs of damage due to weather, including missing or torn shingles. However, there are other issues that could cause a great deal of damage to your home’s interior that are not as obvious.
Whether because there was a premature roof failure or a windstorm damaged it, every year many homeowners replace their roof. That’s why Guelph roofing professionals recommend doing an in-depth inspection on your roof at least once a year. A preventive maintenance program is as simple as a checklist of scheduled roof inspections and whatever corrective actions are taken. The goal is to keep roof repair costs under control and maximize the life expectancy of your roofing system.
Understanding the different materials and components of a roof is very important, regardless of whether you are doing a residential roof replacement or a new roof installation on a new home. A roof replacement is one of the most important investments a Guelph or Cambridge homeowner can make because a new roof doesn’t just improve how your home looks, but it also increases energy efficiency and adds significant value to your home.
It is quite frustrating when you invest in a new roof and your large investment fails. At Empire Roofing & Exteriors we understand your frustration. Often, we meet customers who had their roofs installed by another roofing contractor and are astonished as to why their recently installed roof is showing problems, particularly because new roofs are expected to last between 15 to 20 years or even longer.
