Get Your Roof Ready For Spring

Roofer repairing a roof

Canadian winters are rough and can take a toll on even the newest roofs, and an even more significant toll on roofs that have more years on them. A good way for homeowners to maintain and assure they last longer is by inspecting their roof for any sign of damage after winter.

Now that springtime is fast approaching, you can book an appointment with a professional to ensure that your roof is prepared for the upcoming season. Below you will find several tips that will help you get your roof ready for spring:


Roofs that are prone to ice dams during the winter can and will result in leaks during the spring season. When the water has found its way under the shingles, it will leak through the plywood and continue into the attic and cause water damage. A common telltale sign of a roof leak is water stains on your ceiling or on your wall.

Roof Punctures

Roof punctures are more likely to happen if you have trees on or around your property. A roof puncture is a hole that pierces several layers of your roof, which can put your home at serious risk for major leaks.


Roof blistering happens when rising temperatures trap air and moisture between roof layers. Houses that are more susceptible to blistering in Ottawa do not have sufficient ventilation.

Missing or Damaged Shingles

It is important to check your roof for any damaged or missing shingles at the end of every winter season. If you notice any shingles that are bent, broken, curling, or completely gone your roof is in need of repairs. NOTE: if you are finding shingle pieces on the ground your roof needs repair ASAP, as it means the plywood on your roof could be exposed.
