Residential Roof Repair, Vancouver—Homeowners’ Frequently Asked Questions

If you are dealing with roof leaks and cracks for the first time, then you are probably looking for answers to your roof-repair questions. In this post, we have pieced together homeowners’ most frequently asked questions about residential roof repair in Vancouver. Read on to know your best option.

Q. How can we tell if our roof needs repair?

A. In most cases, a roof repair is recommended when roof problems—say, leaks after a heavy rain or a long winter—are discovered. When the roof damage is still small, you may not be able to notice it right away. However, small leaks will result in severe roof damage if left for a long time. Hence, a regular (once every six months) roof inspection is the best thing to identify possible roofing problems, such as crack, leaks, loose or missing shingles, discolorations, deteriorated flashings, and other obvious traces of roof system problems.

Q. How long will a new roof last?

A. A good-quality steel roof should last about 20 years. Other types—slate, copper, and tile—will last for 40-50 years, considering that you give it proper maintenance.

Q. My roof leaks. Can I repair it on my own?

A. You can do minor roof fixes, such as rust or moss removal, but you have to think twice before doing the work yourself as you may damage your roof all the more. Check out professional roof installers in Vancouver to help you with your roofing problems.
