Some of the homeowners might be scratching their heads instead of celebrating though and wondering if their roof will survive another winter or if they should get a new roof this summer.

Harsh weather in Alberta can cause damage on your property and roof especially with all the snowstorms, hailstorms, strong winds and temperature differences between day and night or from one day to another. If you live in Calgary, you know what we are talking about.

To be honest, if you have a feeling that the days of your roof are numbered, you are probably right. To put your mind at ease you can call a roof inspector or check your roof by yourself.Damaged Roof

If your suspicion is confirmed, do not wait, your roof will not get better, start looking for good and reliable roofing company as soon as possible.

Why not to wait? Summer is the best time for getting a new roof for the following reasons:

1. Take advantage of warm sunny days
As mentioned earlier, here in Calgary you never know when the next snowstorm comes, so play it safe and get the work done as soon as you can.

2. Get it done with shorter waiting time
Many people leave for vacations during the summer and do not want to run any major projects. If you have a chance take the opportunity and have your roof changed in no time.

3. Prevent more damage
If your old roof is missing shingles or is severely damaged, every rainy day increases the risk of water getting into your house and creating big problems starting with stains on the ceiling and ending with mold or rotten framing.

4. Prolong the life of your new roof
Asphalt roof shingles require relatively stable temperature (between 21-27 degrees Celsius) during the installation in order to create the perfect seal and reach ideal elasticity. So summer time wins again.

5. Have a peace of mind
If the issues are already present it surely makes you worried and perhaps checking the weather forecast every hour. It’s better just to deal with what has to be done anyway and feel good under your roof again.

Reroofing is a big project and it’s not cheap, so before you pick up the phone, do your research and check online reviews of local roofing companies to get the best value for your money.
